Five Essential Strategies for Successful HPC Cluster

A successful HPC cluster is a powerful asset for an organization. At the same time, these powerful racks present a multifaceted resource to manage. If not properly managed, software complexity, cluster growth, scalability, and system heterogeneity can introduce project delays and reduce the overall productivity of an organization. At the same time, cloud computing models as well as the processing of Hadoop workloads are emerging challenges that can stifle business agility if not properly implemented. The following essential strategies are guidelines for the effective operation of an HPC cluster resource. Download this IHPC guide to learn more.

The insideHPC Guide to Flexible HPC

Organizations that implement high-performance computing (HPC) technologies have a wide range of requirements. From small manufacturing suppliers to national research institutions, using significant computing technologies is critical to creating innovative products and leading-edge research. No two HPC installations are the same. For maximum return, budget, software requirements, performance and customization all must be considered before installing and operating a successful environment.

CRAY – 2 Computer System

he CRAY-2 Computer System sets the standard for the next generation of supercomputers. It is characterized by a large Common Memory (256 million 64-bit words), four Background Processors, a clock cycle of 4.1 nanoseconds (4.1 billionths of a second) and liquid immersion cooling. It offers effective throughput six to twelve times that of the CRAY-1 and runs an operating system based on the increasingly popular UNIXTM operating system.

Science and Industry using Supercomputers

This paper is intended for people interested in High Performance Computing (HPC) in general, in the performance development of HPC systems from the beginning in the 1970s and, above all, in HPC applications in the past, today and tomorrow. Readers do not need to be supercomputer experts.

Dell HPC General Research Computing

This white paper provides information on the latest Dell HPC General Research Computing Solution based on the Dell 13th Generation servers. The solution supports new generation Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 based PowerEdge servers targeted to provide optimal performance and dense compute power.

Dell HPC NFS Storage Solution

This white paper describes the Dell NFS Storage Solution – High Availability configurations (NSS6.0-HA) with Dell PowerEdge 13th generation servers. It presents a comparison among all available NSS-HA offerings so far, and provides performance results for a configuration with a storage system providing 480TB of raw capacity.

Lustre Dell Storage for HPC with Intel

The following sections of this paper will describe the Lustre File System, the Dell Storage for HPC with Intel EE for Lustre solution followed by performance analysis and conclusions. Appendix A: Benchmark Command Reference

Amazon EC2 Computing Cloud and High-Performance Computing

2013 has been an exciting year for the field of Statistics and Big Data, with the release of the new R version 3.0.0. We discuss a few topics in this area, providing toy examples and supporting code for configuring and using Amazon’s EC2 Computing Cloud. There are other ways to get the job done, of course. But we found it helpful to build the infrastructure on Amazon from scratch, and hope others might find it useful, too.
