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.

Six Smarter Scheduling Techniques For Optimizing EDA Productivity

[SPONSORED POST] Workload management plays a crucial role in helping design teams share limited resources, boost simulation throughput, and maximize productivity. In this white paper, “Six Smarter Scheduling Techniques For Optimizing EDA Productivity,” Altair discusses six valuable techniques to help improve design center productivity. By adopting these techniques and products in the Altair® Accelerator™ portfolio, organizations can realize higher levels of efficiency and performance and dramatically improve productivity with smarter workload scheduling.

Optimizing Resource Utilization and Maximizing ROI with Composable Infrastructure

In this sponsored post, Silicon Mechanics discusses how today’s IT organizations must maximize their resource utilization to deliver the computing capabilities their organization needs when and where it’s needed. This has resulted in many organizations building multi-purpose clusters, which impacts performance. Composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI) can hold the key to solving this optimization problem, while also providing bare metal performance.

@HPCpodcast: The GTC Cornucopia

Last week’s rendition of NVIDIA’s bi-annual GTC extravaganza unveiled a raft of new HPC/AI announcements, the latest public performance of a company in its prime led by a leather-clad CEO generally regarded as a master marketer. Ok, roll your eyes at that gushing statement if you like, but it reflects the sentiment of Wall Street, which pushed NVIDIA stock up 10 percent the day CEO Jensen Huang delivered his GTC keynote, and of most (if not all) in the HPC industry analyst community. In this episode of the @HPCpodcast….
