While some domains that rely on computing systems are satisfied with the performance gains that are continuously delivered from processor manufacturers, others require performance that can only be attained through massive parallelism. High-performance computing is for those that need the highest performance in order to solve many of today’s most difficult scientific challenges.
Despite the proven benefits of HPC in the enterprise, many businesses still struggle to overcome the complexity of deploying HPC solutions in their enterprise. To read several successful case studies and learn more about how to leverage HPC in your enterprise, download this white paper.
The high performance networking interconnect landscape is in transition. InfiniBand and Intel Omni-Path will compete for the performance crown, while Ethernet will remain the ubiquitous standard for commercially oriented systems.
A parallel file system offers several advantages over a single direct attached file system. By using fast, scalable, external disk systems with massively parallel access to data, researchers can perform analysis against much larger datasets than they can by batching large datasets through memory.

To achieve high performance, modern computer systems rely on two basic methodologies to scale resources. A scale-up design that allows multiple cores to share a large global pool of memory and a scale-out design design that distributes data sets across the memory on separate host systems in a computing cluster. To learn more about In-Memory computing download this guide from IHPC and SGI.
Using commodity hardware and the “plug-and-play” NumaConnect interconnect, Numascale delivers true shared memory programming and simpler administration at standard HPC cluster price points. Download this white paper to learn more.

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.
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.
