System Design Decisions to Achieve Faster Results in Drug Discovery

When it comes to drug discovery, research is everything. The ability to accelerate research can make or break a business and, of course, save lives. However, key design considerations in HPC infrastructure design can make a dramatic difference in performance and maximize your cluster’s value. How do you maximize HPC/AI performance? We recommend you start by using commodity off the shelf (COTS) components and best-of-breed technologies from trusted partners. This lets you get more nodes for your money. This also avoids the problem of vendor lock-in, and the associated risk of being trapped into higher prices without the corresponding improvement….

It’s Time to Resolve the Root Cause of Congestion

[SPONSORED POST] In this paper, Matthew Williams, CTO at Rockport Networks, explains how recent innovations in networking technologies have led to a new network architecture that targets the root causes of HPC network congestion. Congestion can delay workload completion times for crucial scientific and enterprise workloads, making HPC systems unpredictable and leaving high-cost cluster resources waiting for delayed data to arrive. Despite various brute-force attempts to resolve the congestion issue, the problem has persisted. Until now.
