GigaOm Radar for Evaluating Data Warehouse Platforms

This new GigaOm Radar Report provided by our friends over at Vertica, examines the leading platforms in the data warehouse marketplace, describes the fundamentals of the technology, identifies key criteria and  evaluation metrics by which organizations can evaluate competing platforms, describes some potential  technology developments to look out for in the future, and classifies platforms across those criteria and  metrics.

Increasing HPC Cluster Productivity Through System Resource Tracking

This white paper from Bright Computing addresses the necessary steps to give administrators, managers, and users the information they need to use HPC system resources effectively, to maximize system productivity, to  enable effective resource sharing, to identify waste and to provide charge-back capability.

Rugged COTS Platform Takes On Fast-Changing Needs of Self-Driving Trucks

This white paper by Advantech, “Rugged COTS Platform Takes On Fast-Changing Needs of Self-Driving Trucks” discusses how the fast-changing needs of self-driving trucks are forcing compute platforms to evolve. Advantech and Crystal Group are teaming up to power that evolution based on AV trends, compute requirements, and a rugged COTS philosophy converging for breakthrough innovation in self-driving truck designs.

The GigaIO FabreX Network – New Frontiers in Networking For Big Data

GigaIO has developed a new whitepaper to describe GigaIO FabreX, a fundamentally new network architecture that integrates computing, storage, and other communication I/O into a single-system cluster network, using industry standard PCIe (peripheral component interconnect express) technology.

The Use of High-Performance Polymers in HPC and Data Center Applications

“Polymer components in liquid cooling systems are attractive for several reasons: they are lightweight, typically less expensive than metal counterparts, and are impervious to corrosion that can render parts inoperable or introduce debris into flow paths. The challenges with many polymers used to date, however, are their abilities to handle high temperatures and physical stressors without deforming, cracking or creeping. These shortcomings become significant when leaks occur, leading to downtime or damage to equipment.”

Exploring Bright Cluster Manager on NVIDIA DGX Systems

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly becoming an essential business and research tool, providing valuable new insights into corporate data and delivering those insights with high velocity and accuracy. While these AI capabilities add significant value to our lives, they are the most demanding workloads in modern computing history. Download the new report from Bright Computing to explore how NVIDIA DGX and Bright Cluster Manager are designed to deliver more of what AI infrastructure users need. 

GPUs for Oil and Gas Firms: Deriving Insights from Petabytes of Data

Adoption of GPU-accelerated computing can offer oil and gas firms significant ROI today and pave the way to gain additional advantage from future technical developments. To stay competitive, these companies need to be able to derive insights from petabytes of sensor, geolocation, weather, drilling, and seismic data in milliseconds. A new white paper from Penguin Computing explores how GPUs are spurring innovation and changing how hydrocarbon businesses address data processing needs.

GPUs Address Growing Data Needs for Finance & Insurance Sectors

A new whitepaper from Penguin Computing contends “a new era of supercomputing” has arrived — driven primarily by the emergence of graphics processing units or GPUs. The tools once specific to gaming are now being used by investment and financial services to gain greater insights and generate actionable data. Learn how GPUs are spurring innovation and changing how today’s finance companies address their data processing needs. 

Exploring the ROI Potential of GPU Supercomputing

The growing prevalence of artificial intelligence and machine learning is putting heightened focus on the quantities of data that organizations have recently accumulated — as well as the value potential in this data. Companies looking to gain a competitive edge in their market are turning to tools like graphic processing units – or GPUs – to ramp up computing power. That’s according to a new white paper from Penguin Computing.

Exploring Today’s AI Resources — A Portal to a Growing Sector

When Accenture Federal Services researched how current AI technologies could be used by the U.S. federal government, Accenture documented nearly 100 use cases for AI adoption. Artificial intelligence is making a difference to government right now.
