Putting Data in The Driver Seat Can Change Everything

[Sponsored Post] When you have data in the driver’s seat, it’s a smooth ride. Any other operator, you risk a bumpy experience. The explosion of Digital Transformation is driving a rapid increase in investment in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies as enterprises seek a competitive edge.

Double-precision CPUs vs. Single-precision GPUs; HPL vs. HPL-AI HPC Benchmarks; Traditional vs. AI Supercomputers

If you’ve wondered why GPUs are faster than CPUs, in part it’s because GPUs are asked to do less – or, to be more precise, to be less precise. Next question: So if GPUs are faster than CPUs, why aren’t GPUs  the mainstream, baseline processor used in HPC server clusters? Again, in part it gets […]

Spend Less on HPC/AI Storage (and more on CPU/GPU compute)

[SPONSORED POST] In this whitepaper courtesy of HPE, you’ll learn about the three approaches that can help you to feed your CPU- and GPU-accelerated compute nodes without I/O bottlenecks while creating efficiencies in Gartner’s Run category. As the market share leader in HPC servers, HPE saw the convergence of classic modeling and simulation with AI methods such as machine learning and deep learning coming and now offers you a new portfolio of parallel HPC/AI storage systems that are purpose engineered to address all of the previously mentioned challenges—in a cost-effective way.

Argonne-led Team of Scientists Use AI to Detect Gravitational Waves

JULY 6, 2021 — When gravitational waves were first detected in 2015 by the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), they sent a ripple through the scientific community, as they confirmed another of Einstein’s theories and marked the birth of gravitational wave astronomy. Five years later, numerous gravitational wave sources have been detected, including the first […]

NVIDIA Claims Install of UK’s Top Supercomputer, for Research in AI and Healthcare

Announced last October, NVIDIA today launched Cambridge-1, calling it the United Kingdom’s most powerful supercomputer. Enabling scientists and healthcare experts to use the combination of AI and simulation to accelerate the digital biology revolution, Cambridge-1 represents a $100 million investment by NVIDIA. Cambridge-1 brings together NVIDIA’s work in accelerated computing, AI and life sciences, where […]

Lenovo at ISC: ‘Exascale to Every Scale’

For at least four years, Lenovo has been vocal about its high ambitions in high performance computing, and by all appearances the company is progressing toward its objectives. This is the eighth year since China-based Lenovo purchased IBM’s Intel x86-based server business, an acquisition that marked the company’s entrance into HPC, and despite some U.S. […]

Xilinx Announces FPGA EDA Tools with ML

Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today introduced Vivado ML Editions, which the company said is the industry’s first FPGA EDA tool suite based on machine-learning (ML) optimization algorithms, as well as team-based design flows, intended to deliver design time and cost savings. Vivado ML Editions delivers 5x faster compile time and breakthrough quality of results (QoR) […]

Intel’s Infrastructure Processing Unit Targets Hyperscaler Data Centers

Intel has unveiled a programmable networking device for hyperscalers and their massive data center infrastructures. Called the Infrastructure Processing Unit and announced at Intel made the announcement during the Six Five Summit, it’s a networking device is intended to help cloud and communication service providers cut overhead and free up performance for CPUs, to better utilize […]

How to Integrate GPUs into your Business Analytics Ecosystem

This whitepaper, “How to Integrate GPUs into your Business Analytics Ecosystem,” discusses how GPU technology can augment data analytics performance, enabling data warehouses and other solutions to better respond to new, yet common, database limitations that are the result of increasing data set sizes, increasing user concurrency and demand, and increased use of interactive analytics.

A New Approach to Storage and Data Management

In this sponsored post, Olivier Multon, Storage & Data Management Product Manager, Atos, BDS – Big Data & Security, believes that
with the expansion of data-intensive applications, storage has been highlighted as a critical factor in HPC. Data Management is key to optimize your entire system’s speed and performance. High-performance storage enables organizations to take full advantage of highly parallel applications and thus harness the power of supercomputing.
