NVIDIA’s New Turing T4 GPU is going gangbusters in the Cloud Space

Two months after its introduction, the NVIDIA T4 GPU is featured in 57 separate server designs from the world’s leading computer makers. It is also available in the cloud, with the first availability of the T4 for Google Cloud Platform customers. “Just 60 days after the T4’s launch, it’s now available in the cloud and is supported by a worldwide network of server makers. The T4 gives today’s public and private clouds the performance and efficiency needed for compute-intensive workloads at scale.”

Video: Intel Driving HPC on the Road to Exascale

In this video from SC18, Raj Hazra describes how Intel is driving the convergence of HPC and Ai. “To meet the new computational challenges presented by this AI and HPC convergence, HPC is expanding beyond its traditional role of modeling and simulation to encompass visualization, analytics, and machine learning. Intel scientists and engineers will be available to discuss how to implement AI capabilities into your current HPC environments and demo how new, more powerful HPC platforms can be applied to meet your computational needs now and in the future.”

How Intel is Fostering HPC in the Cloud

“Cloud computing offers a potential solution by allowing people to create and access computing resources on demand. Yet meeting the complex software demands of an HPC application can be quite challenging in a cloud environment. In addition, running HPC workloads on virtualized infrastructure may result in unacceptable performance penalties for some workloads. Because of these issues, relatively few organizations have run production HPC work- loads in either private or public clouds.”

UberCloud Wins Hyperion HPC Innovation Excellence Award with Neuromodulation Project

Today Hyperion Research announced that the winner of the 2018 Hyperion Award for Innovation Excellence goes to UberCloud and its project partners. “This work represents a breakthrough in demonstrating the high value of computational modeling and simulation in improving the clinical application of non-invasive electro-stimulation of the human brain in schizophrenia and the potential to apply this technology to the treatment of other neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression and Parkinson’s disease.”

Rescale Brings Cloud HPC to Academia

Today Rescale announced its launch into academia with their ScaleX Pro for Students and ScaleX Pro for Classroom products. “Rescale’s ScaleX Pro for Students and ScaleX Pro for Classroom solve for today’s academia pain points by providing students with the ability to run projects immediately and unique access to different technology partner programs such as to cloud service providers.”

Instant Gratification Takes Too Long and Costs Too Much for HPC. Or Does It?

In this special guest post, Peter ffoulkes writes that automation software from companies like XTREME-D are making HPC datacenters more productive every day. “One such example of these capabilities comes from startup XTREME-D, which provides a simple point-and-click user interface based on HPC workload templates and the XTREME-Stargate cluster portal, which acts as a “super head node” to provide simple access to virtual cluster resources.”

Rescale Delivers Secure HPC in the Cloud for the Public Sector

Today Rescale announced that the company is now delivering secure HPC in the Cloud to the public sector. “In our platform development we have taken several steps towards protecting customers through the security of our platform which is why we are proud to be the first HPC platform solution in the industry to be ITAR and EAR compliant. Additionally, we are the only HPC platform today that is both independently SOC 2 Type 2 attested and HIPAA compliant.”

Parabricks and SkyScale Raise the Performance Bar for Genomic Analysis

“In the modern world of genomics where analysis of 10’s of thousands of genomes is required for research, the cost per genome and the number of genomes per time are critical parameters. Parabricks adaption of the GATK4 Best Practice workflows running seamlessly on SkyScale’s Accelerated Cloud provides unparalleled price and throughput efficiency to help unlock the power of the human genome.”

UberCloud Now Available in Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Today the UberCloud announced the availability of UberCloud consulting services in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Microsoft Azure. UberCloud customers can now take advantage of the scalability, high availability, and security of Azure, with streamlined deployment and management. “UberCloud’s HPC software containers provide engineers with seamless and immediate access to the cloud,” said Wolfgang Gentzsch, President of TheUberCloud Inc.

R Systems Powers Parallel Works in the Cloud at NAFEMS Engineering Event

Today HPC Cloud provider R Systems announced plans to showcase its flexible High Performance Computing solutions at the annual NAFEMS (for engineering analysis & simulation in the automotive industry) conference Nov. 8, 2018 in Troy, Mich. Attendees can learn more about how automotive organizations are using new methods to access HPC resources such as cloud computing (public, private and hybrid) as well as dedicated and managed HPC resources and services by visiting the R Systems booth or by attending the IndyCar case study NAFEMS session.
