In this episode of This Week in HPC, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research look at the Secure Data Appliance from Xyratex. After that, the Dynamic Duo discusses the highlights of their new HPC Budget Map Report.
“Named after the astronomical open star cluster of the same name, Pleiades, one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, represents NASA’s state-of-the-art technology for meeting the agency’s supercomputing requirements, enabling NASA scientists and engineers to conduct modeling and simulation for NASA missions.”
NSF is seeking proposals that would explore new norms and practices in the research community for software and data citation and attribution.
“Our annual ‘Budget Map’ report series looks at the relative spending between all of the products, components, and services that make up the HPC market. With six years of end user data, we get a strong grip on where the money is flowing, whether it’s on big items like clusters and storage, or on topical things like power consumption, programming, or compute cycles in public cloud. We also get a sense of future budget outlook and how the market is likely to evolve.” [Read More...]
MacGyver is a character famous for getting out of tough situations by coming up with a makeshift solution from whatever bits and pieces he found laying around. That’s no way to manage a critical part of your organization’s infrastructure. [Read More...]
