An Adaptive Platform for Converged HPC/AI Workloads

In this sponsored post from our friends over at Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), we see that from many years of experience working with numerous customers, the company found that converged HPC and AI environments can bring benefits for customers and remain flexible enough to meet their workload demands. A proven approach to getting customers HPC and AI systems productive quickly is to deliver all the components together, integrated, and tested. The components should be selected based on the known and anticipated workloads and optimized for these requirements.

NVMe over Fabrics and GPU Direct Storage Boost HPC and AI Edge Applications

In this special guest feature, Tim Miller, VP of Product Marketing at One Stop Systems (OSS), discuses how deploying edge HPC solutions – instead of data movement over relatively slow or unsecure networks to distant datacenters – provides significant benefits in cost, responsiveness and security. Real time decisions require sourcing and storing raw data, and converting it to actionable intelligence with high speed computing in the field close to the data source.

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Supercomputing Populist Merle Giles on the Business Realities of Commercial HPC

This interview is with Merle Giles, founder and CEO of Moonshot Research and a tireless advocate for HPC’s role as an accelerator to industrial innovation.

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Rich Brueckner Talks with Jack Collins about the Emergence of ‘HPC Everywhere’ and Its Impact on Science

HPC industry veteran Jack Collins, long-time fixture in the scientific supercomputing community, has seen it all in HPC, from the days when his input/output device for storing integrals was nine-track tape to today’s 750-GPU monster systems. So he has a full appreciation for how far HPC has come. At the same time, he’s concerned about the power of HPC for dark purposes, such as deepfakes: “’Seeing is believing,’ is what people used to say,” he told the late Rich Brueckner. “I can hack a video and make it look like anything in an afternoon. That’s potentially societal altering. We have to be very careful with that.”
