Argonne’s Polaris Supercomputer Deployed for Scientific Research

Argonne National Laboratory announced that the Polaris supercomputer, a 44-petaflops HPE system powered by AMD CPUs and NVIDIA GPUs, is now open to the research community. Researchers can apply for computing time through the ALCF’s Director’s Discretionary allocation program. Details on the system can be found here. The system, housed at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility […]

Lenovo Brings a Decade of Liquid Cooling Experience to the Faster, Denser, Hotter HPC Systems of the Future

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  HPC systems customers (and vendors) are in permanent pursuit of more compute power with equal or greater node density. But with that comes more power consumption, greater heat generation and rising cooling costs. Because of this, the IT business – with a boost from the HPC and hyperscale segments – is spiraling up […]

NVIDIA Announces GA of AI Enterprise 2.1

NVIDIA today announced the general availability of NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.1., an updated version of its AI and data analytics software suite designed to help enterprises deploy and scale AI applications across bare metal, virtual, container, and cloud environments.

Two Key Considerations of a Composable Infrastructure Cluster

In this sponsored post, our friends over at Silicon Mechanics indicated that these days, they’re getting a lot of interest from clients about composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI), including what the most critical elements are for CDI-based clusters. Successful deployments are more likely when clients understand why their design team focuses on certain areas more than others and how design decisions can impact end user experience, so this article outlines some key elements of CDI-based clusters.
