Can HPE GreenLake for HPC Deliver a Simpler User Experience than Public Cloud?

[Sponsored Post] When looking for a simple HPC user experience, many of us would naturally think of public cloud. But on-premises solutions like HPE GreenLake for HPC, powered by AMD EPYC processors, have picked up the advantages of public cloud without compromising performance. HPE GreenLake for HPC is designed to help you get the benefits of HPC without the deployment challenges. It’s a consumption-based solution that is fully managed and operated for you, just like public cloud.

Meet OLCF’s Gina Tourassi, Director of National Center for Computational Sciences

Since Gina Tourassi began her career, computer science has come a long way. Tourassi learned programming in the 1980s starting with QBasic. It’s a programming environment that hasn’t been included with Microsoft operating systems for more than 20 years. When she first discovered her love of computational research, computer scientists were programming artificial intelligence (AI) […]

NVIDIA Long-Haul InfiniBand at Purdue University – Extending Accelerated Research Across Campus

[Sponsored Post] For data-driven researchers, the time-related expense of moving data from machines between data centers slows computation and causes costly delays in results. Plus, data center space can be limited for many organizations, even  well-established academic campuses. To address these issues, Purdue University deployed NVIDIA InfiniBand MetroX across campus in 2011, connecting remote computation clusters to remote storage facilities.
