Modern HPC and Big Data Design Strategies for Data Centers – Part 4

This insideHPC Special Research Report, “Modern HPC and Big Data Design Strategies for Data Centers,” provides an overview of what to consider when selecting an infrastructure capable of meeting the new workload processing needs. Tyan has a wide range of bare bones server and storage hardware solutions available for organizations and enterprise customers.

Webinar: Transform Your Data Center with Our IPU-POD Scale-out Technology

Don’t miss Graphcore’s upcoming webinar “Transform Your Data Center with Our IPU-POD Scale-out Technology” on January 27, 2021 at 16:00 GMT, 8:00 PT, 11:00 ET. IPU-POD is Graphcore’s unique scale-out solution for high-performance machine intelligence compute, ideal for experimentation to prototype to production systems from IPU-M2000 with 4 IPUs up to supercomputing scale.

Things to Know When Assessing, Piloting, and Deploying GPUs

In this insideHPC Guide, our friends over at WEKA suggest that when organizations decide to move existing applications or new applications to a GPU-influenced system there are many items to consider, such as assessing the new environment’s required components, implementing a pilot program to learn about the system’s future performance, and considering eventual scaling to production levels.

The Graphcore Second Generation IPU

Our friends over at Graphcore, the U.K.-based startup that launched the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU) for AI acceleration in 2018, has released a new whitepaper introducing the IPU-Machine. This second-generation platform has greater processing power, more memory and built-in scalability for handling extremely large parallel processing workloads. This paper explores the new platform and assesses its strengths and weaknesses compared to the growing cadre of potential competitors.

Oxford Nanopore and Nvidia Partner DGX AI System with PromethION Genomics Sequencer

January 12, 2021 — Oxford Nanopore Technologies and Nvidia are collaborating this year to integrate the Nvidia DGX Station A100 into Oxford Nanopore’s gene sequencing system, PromethION with the aim of delivering real-time analyses at scale, and can also analyze any length fragment of DNA/RNA. “The use of accelerated computing and artificial intelligence to quickly and […]

Update from the Frontier of Exascale Software Development

In advance of the scheduled shipment this year of the U.S.’s first exascale supercomputer, Frontier, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, an international team of software developers led by a University of Delaware professor is working on a plasma physics application. An article published yesterday in the university’s UDaily by Tracey Bryant details the work underway […]

HPC Predictions 2021: Quantum Beyond Qubits, Rising Composable and Memory-Centric Tide, Neural Network Explosion and 5G’s Slow March

Annual technology predictions are like years: some are better than others. Nonetheless, many provide useful insight and serve as the basis for worthwhile discussion. Over the last few months we received a number of HPC and AI predictions for 2021, here are the most interesting and potentially valid. Let’s check in 12 months from now […]
