The Race for a Unified Analytics Warehouse

This white paper, “The Race for a Unified Analytics Warehouse,” from our friends over at Vertica discusses how the race for a unified analytics warehouse is on. The data warehouse has been around for almost three  decades. Shortly after big data platforms were introduced in the late 2000s, there was talk that the data  warehouse was dead—but it never went away. When big data platform vendors realized that the data warehouse was here to stay, they started building databases on top of their file system and conceptualizing a  data lake that would replace the data warehouse. It never did.

Video: GigaIO on Optimizing Compute Resources for ML, HPDA and other Advanced Workloads

In this interview, GigaIO CEO Alan Benjamin talks about systems performance problems and wasted compute resources when implementing ML, HPDA and other high demand workloads that involve high data volumes. At issue, Benjamin explains, is today’s rack architecture, which is decades old and unsuited for combinations of CPUs, GPUs and other accelerators needed for advanced computing strategies. The answer: the “composable disaggregated infrastructure.”

Composable Computing at SDSC

In this Q&A, SDSC Chief Data Science Officer Ilkay Altintas explains the rationale for composable systems and the approach taken with the new Expanse supercomputer. With its new Expanse supercomputer, San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) is pioneering composable HPC systems to enable the dynamic allocation of resources tailored to individual workloads. One of the critical innovations in the SDSC’s new Expanse supercomputer from Dell Technologies, is the ability to support composable systems with dynamic capabilities.
