Accelerate Your Development of GPU Based Innovative Applications

In this sponsored post by our friends over at AMD, we take a deep into how GPUs have become an essential component of innovative organizations that require the highest performing clusters, whether one server or thousands of servers. Many High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Machine Learning (ML) applications have demonstrated tremendous performance gains by using one or more GPUs in conjunction with powerful CPUs. Over 25% of the Top500 list of the most powerful supercomputers on this planet use accelerators, specifically GPUs, to achieve teraflop and petaflop speeds.

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.
