Making AI Accessible to Any Size Enterprise

In this sponsored post, our friends over at Lenovo and NetApp have teamed up with NVIDIA to discuss how the companies are helping to drive Artificial Intelligence (AI) into smaller organizations and hopefully seed that creative garden. Experience tells us that there is a relationship between organizational size and technology adoption:  Larger, more resource-rich, enterprises generally adopt new technologies first, while smaller, more resource constrained organizations follow afterward, (provided that the small organization isn’t in the technology business). 

IBM to Acquire Performance Monitoring Company Instana for Hybrid Cloud and AI

IBM today announced plans to acquire Instana, an application performance monitoring and observability company.

In this technology guide sponsored by our friends over at Dell Technologies, we take a deep dive into how the team of Dell Technologies and AMD is working to provide solutions for a wide array of needs for more strategic cultivation of oil and gas energy reserves. We’ll explore how the dynamic confluence of HPC and AI is now considered essential to any organization involved in energy exploration and the process of bringing the resulting energy resources to market.

At SC20: Hyperion Sees COVID HPC Impact Sharp but Short; HPE in Server Lead; Aurora 12+/- Months Late; Cloud HPC Heating Up

One thing – another thing – regular SC conference attendees have to do without this pandemic year is industry analyst firm Hyperion Research’s annual HPC market update breakfast, always held in a large hotel function room before a well-fed, SRO crowd. Instead, Hyperion delivered its update virtually, and much of the discussion, not surprisingly, revolved […]

insideHPC Guide to AI and HPC in Media & Entertainment – Part 3

In this white paper sponsored by our friends over at Dell Technologies, we take a look at AI and HPC in Media & Entertainment where an increasing demand for digital media content creates need for faster rendering options. The ongoing increase in the use of visual effects (VFX) and computer-generated imagery (CGI) and animation in digital content media creation for television, movies, and streaming services has accelerated the amount of material that requires rendering, from a workstation to a data center render farm environment.
