Overcoming Challenges to Deep Learning Infrastructure

With use cases like computer vision, natural language processing, predictive modeling, and much more, deep learning (DL) provides the kinds of far-reaching applications that change the way technology can impact human existence. The possibilities are limitless, and we’ve just scratched the surface of its potential. There are three significant obstacles for you to be aware of when designing a deep learning infrastructure: scalability, customizing for each workload, and optimizing workload performance.

Successfully Deploy Composable Infrastructure on the Edge to Improve HPC and AI Outside of Traditional Data Centers

Emerging CDI technologies allow you to achieve the cost and availability benefits of cloud computing using on-premises networking equipment. You also benefit from extreme flexibility, being able to dynamically recompose systems and support nearly any workload. Thanks to innovative engineering, these benefits are now available on the edge. ​

Immersion Cooling for Transportable HPC

In this sponsored post from our friends over at One Stop Systems, Product Marketing Manager, Braden Cooper discusses how the latest high-performance computing systems for AI applications generate more heat than ever before. Datacenters have begun adoption of immersion cooling solutions that immerse the temperature-sensitive electronics in a non-conductive fluid which efficiently dissipates the heat.

Advancing HPC through oneAPI Heterogeneous Programming in Academia & Research

oneAPI offers an open industry effort supported by over 100 organizations. oneAPI is an open, unified, cross-architecture programming model for CPUs and accelerator architectures (GPUs, FPGAs, and others). Based on standards, the programming model simplifies software development and delivers uncompromised performance for accelerated compute without proprietary lock-in, while enabling the integration of existing code.

A Look Inside the AMD-HPE Blade that Drives Frontier, the World’s First Exascale Supercomputer

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  The new number 1 supercomputer in the world, the AMD-powered and HPE-built Frontier, is celebrated today, Exascale Day, as the world’s first exascale (a billion billion calculations per second) HPC system. Recognized at last spring’s ISC conference in Hamburg for having exceeded the exascale barrier, a display of the Frontier blade in HPE’s ISC booth was a focus of attention on the conference floor. We thought it would be interesting to sit down with two senior officials from AMD and HPE to talk about the Frontier blade, what’s in it, its design innovations and the anticipated, long-term impacts of the blade on leadership supercomputing and on systems used by the broader HPC industry.

@HPCpodcast: Intel Shipping Aurora Blades; Rocky Linux vs. CentOS; Tesla’s ‘Dojo’ AI Supercomputer

In this edition of the @HPCpodcast, Shahin and Doug kick things off on the news from Intel Innovation Day that  the company is shipping Sapphire Rapids CPU / Ponte Vecchio GPU-powered blades to the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility for use in the lab’s Aurora exascale supercomputer, due for delivery by late 2022 or early 2023. It’s encouraging news, but still …
