Dell Technologies Interview: Dell’s Jay Boisseau on Data Growth Outpacing Moore’s Law, the HPC-AI Divide-Convergence and Beating Zoom Fatigue

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  Jay Boisseau, HPC & AI Technology Strategist at Dell Technologies and organizer of the Dell Technologies HPC Community meetings, is one of the big personalities of HPC, someone who brings energy and insight to any gathering he’s a part of. In this insideHPC interview conducted on behalf of Dell, we talk with Boisseau about his career path, including serving as director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center, about big shifts and future trends in HPC and about the phenomenon, where HPC and AI intersect, of data growth rates outpacing Moore’s Law. He also disc uses his strategy for infusing life into the HPC Community meetings in an era of “Zoom fatigue,” including drawing inspiration from The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker, who, as Boisseau points out, probably never dreamed of the Zoom era.

An Approach to Democratizing HPC-Style Computing

In this sponsored post, Ehsan Totoni, CTO of Bodo.ai, discusses opportunities to integrate a parallelization approach – capable of scaling to 10k cores or more – into popular cloud-based Data Warehouses to help speed large-scale analytics and ELT computing. And, because the model can be engineered for various special-purpose hardware and accelerators, there are opportunities to apply this to GPUs and FPGAs for media processing and encoding as well.

Intersect360 Research White Paper: Microsoft Azure Delivers HPC Now And Into The Future With AMD

[SPONSORED POST] Highlighted in this white paper by Intersect360 Research, the fastest growing provider of HPC cloud solutions has been Microsoft Azure. Azure’s momentum is based on completeness of services and solutions for HPC, and this is reflected in the loyalty of Azure users. Microsoft Azure has a greater proportion of its HPC users likely to increase their usage in the future. Meanwhile, in recent years, HPC has seen a new surge in compute from Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD). As both AMD and Azure have surged in HPC, Microsoft is combining both with its HBv3 instances, featuring AMD EPYC 7003 processors.
