Intel and AWS Team for HPC Performance in the Cloud

In this video from SC19, Trish Damkroger from Intel and Ian Colle from AWS describe how the two companies collaborate to deliver the best possible application performance in the Cloud. “HPC on AWS, powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors, offers the most elastic, scalable cloud infrastructure to run HPC applications, and the range of services makes it easier than ever to get started quickly, securely, and cost-effectively.”

Bright Cluster Manager 9.0 Extends On-premise Clusters to the Public Cloud and Edge

Today Bright Computing announced the latest version of their Bright Cluster Manager software for HPC, OpenStack, and Data Science. “Our development team has been hard at work implementing a host of features designed to better extend on-premise clusters to the public cloud and edge, improve ease of use, lower administrative costs, and increase standardization across the enterprise. The platform enhancements included in this latest update further our mission in offering a cluster management platform that reduces complexity and decreases the effort and risk when building and maintaining Linux clusters.”

Cloud Adoption for HPC: Trends and Opportunities

This whitepaper is an insideHPC Special Research Report sponsored by Univa. “Today many organizations solve their most difficult computational challenges by creating their own on-premises, compute-intensive, high performance data center. The latest hardware and software innovations have removed barriers that prevented many organizations from embracing HPC solutions. With more enterprises extending their own on-premises clusters into the cloud with hybrid configurations, finding the right tools for managing and scheduling workflows and automatically controlling cost remains a critical challenge.”

HPE and Cray Unveil HPC and AI Solutions Optimized for the Exascale Era

Today HPE announced it will deliver the industry’s most comprehensive HPC and AI portfolio for the exascale era, which is characterized by explosive data growth and new converged workloads such as HPC, AI, and analytics. “The addition of Cray, Inc., which HPE recently acquired, bolsters HPE’s HPC and AI solutions to now encompass an end-to-end supercomputing architecture across compute, interconnect, software, storage and services, delivered on premises, hybrid or as-a-Service. Now every enterprise can leverage the same foundational HPC technologies that power the world’s fastest systems, and integrate them into their data centers to unlock insights and fuel new discovery.”
