insideHPC Guide to How Expert Design Engineering and a Building Block Approach Can Give You a Perfectly Tailored AI, ML or HPC Environment – Part 3

In this insideHPC technology guide, “How Expert Design Engineering and a Building Block Approach Can Give You a Perfectly Tailored AI, ML or HPC Environment,”we will present things to consider when building a customized supercomputer-in-a-box system with the help of experts from Silicon Mechanics.

What’s Needed for High-Fidelity, Low-Latency HPC Network Monitoring at 100Gbps

Enterprise migration to 100Gbps network speeds continues to accelerate, with high-performance computing (HPC) data centers leading the charge. According to data from Crehan Research, 100 and 25 Gbps Ethernet speeds rose 40 percent year-over-year in 2020, with more growth expected over the next several years. HPC use cases, like financial trading, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, 3D rendering and modeling, meteorology, and other types of research benefit significantly from the increased speed of 100Gbps, but are also highly sensitive to issues like jitter and latency.
