HPE Introduces ProLiant Gen11 Servers for On-prem or via GreenLake As-a-Service

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) today announced new ProLiant Gen11 servers available for on-premises infrastructures or through HPE’s GreenLake as-a-service platform. The new servers are designed for compute- and data-intensive workloads, such as AI, machine learning, analytics, rendering, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and virtualization. The servers support several architectures, including 4th Generation AMD EPYC processors, […]

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.

Factors to Understand to Maximize Cloud HPC Investments for Your Organization

HPC workloads place considerable demands on compute hardware and IT infrastructures, which is why most organizations have traditionally kept HPC applications on-premises in their local data centers. Several cloud providers now offer specific HPC services and capabilities, but you’ll need to understand and address several factors before running HPC applications in the public cloud instead of locally in your own data center.

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.

Staying at the Cutting Edge of Automotive Design Technology with Azure Cloud Platform and AMD

[SPONSORED CONTENT]   In automotive, first movers have a massive advantage. Success in the industry centers on vehicle R&D, at the core of which is design, performance and crash safety multi-physics software. Generating remarkably true-to-life simulations, these applications quicken vehicle time-to-market, allowing engineers to sample more design options and conduct more virtual tests in less time. […]

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 …

Supercharging Modern Data Centers with NVIDIA Networking Solutions

In this webinar sponsored by PNY Technologies, you will learn the benefits, functionalities, and key features of Accelerated Ethernet technology by NVIDIA Spectrum and how it delivers end-to-end innovations and synergies to optimize modern applications from core to cloud to edge.

Intel Says It’s Moving Toward Large-Scale Quantum Chip Production

Intel announced today it has demonstrated the industry’s highest reported yield and uniformity to date of silicon spin qubit devices. “This achievement represents a major milestone for scaling and working towards fabricating quantum chips on Intel’s transistor manufacturing processes,” the company said. Intel said the research was conducted using its second-generation silicon spin test chip. […]
