Video: Big Data is Dead, Long Live Its Replacement

Tom Fisher gave this talk at the Samsung Forum. “Big Data is experiencing a second revolution. This talk will address what’s happened, how it happened and what big data is bridging too. Enterprise companies have to make business critical decisions in the coming years and the marketplace is not clear. The recent changes in the Big Data market will be reviewed as well as the effects on the related ecosystem. The goal of this presentation is to provide insights to engineers, data engineers and data scientists to better navigate a rapidly moving landscape.”

Nimbix Launches HyperHub Catalog of Cloud-enabled Applications

Today HPC cloud provider Nimbix announced the launch of HyperHub, a point-and-click catalog of HPC and accelerated applications. With the new self-service marketplace, engineers and scientists can select from a growing ecosystem of prebuilt apps and workflows and run them on any device, cloud, or on-premises infrastructure, anywhere in the world. “By providing access to a growing catalog of consumable, run-anywhere apps, HyperHub enables engineers and scientists to shorten their time-to-value when tackling complex, compute-intensive tasks like simulation and AI. HyperHub’s open marketplace structure also encourages ISVs and partners to continue building and publishing additional high-quality HPC apps for these professionals to use.”

Moving HPC to the Cloud? Take our insideHPC Survey

How big is the move to HPC in the Cloud? “A recent report from Hyperion Research indicate that as much as 10 percent of HPC workloads are already in cloud and that 70 percent of HPC centers are running some jobs in public clouds. Do these reports of increasing HPC Cloud migration match what you readers are experiencing? There is one quick way to find out–by taking our HPC Cloud Survey.”

Podcast: Who will benefit from Intel dropping Omni-Path?

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team takes a close look at the history of High Performance Interconnects, recent news, and how the market is changing profoundly. “The departure of Intel from this segment is good news for some, and it remains to be seen what strategy Intel will adopt for the HPC market.”

Nimbix HPC Cloud Powers US Sailing Team

Today ​Nimbix​ announced their collaboration with the US Sailing Team (USST) as the “Official Compute Partner of the US Sailing Team.” For us, it is all about providing the team with fast access to high-performance cloud computing to support their supercomputing simulation needs. The team is using software to analyze high priority fluid-structure studies that will hopefully help the team stand atop the podium,” said Nimbix CEO, Steve Hebert.

Advania Launches First HPC cloud service based on Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processors

Today Advania Data Centers (ADC) announced the industry’s first HPC cloud service based on Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processors. This combination provides unprecedented performance and application compatibility, enabling customers to gain faster time to insights with HPC workloads in finance, weather, satellite, manufacturing, and artificial intelligence (AI) applications. “This service offering will combine ADC’s expertise in efficiently operating 100% renewable energy HPC datacenters with Intel’s computing technology.”

SDSC Awarded NSF Grant for Triton Stratus

The National Science Foundation has awarded SDSC a two-year grant worth almost $400,000 to deploy a new system called Triton Stratus. “Triton Stratus will provide researchers with improved facilities for utilizing emerging computing paradigms and tools, namely interactive and portal-based computing, and scaling them to commercial cloud computing resources. Researchers, especially data scientists, are increasingly using toolssuch as Jupyter notebooks and RStudio to implement computational and data analysis functions and workflows.”

Podcast: Is Cloud too expensive for HPC?

Is Cloud too expensive for HPC? Enquiring minds want to know, as does the HPC community whose single-minded obsession with maximum price-performance is notorious and legendary. The Radio Free team looks at actual cloud pricing based on available data and Dan’s research which fuel a hearty discussion. They look at configurations, compare prices, talk about the costs that are not included, segment the market, and then segment the applications.

Globus Integrates with Box Cloud Content Management

Today the Globus research data management service announced the general availability of Globus for Box, a new solution for seamlessly connecting Box with an organization’s existing research storage ecosystem. “The Box connector is a valuable addition to our Globus subscription, since it will let our users easily plug Box into their existing ecosystem of research data storage systems,” said Doug Johnson, chief systems architect and HPC systems group manager, Ohio Supercomputer Center.
