The Evolution of HPC Storage: More Choices Yields More Decisions

[SPONSORED CONTENT] The past few years have brought many changes into the HPC storage world, both with technology like non-volatile memory express (NVMe) or persistent memory, and the growth of software defined storage solutions. Gone are the days when IBM Spectrum Scale (secretly, we know we all still call it GPFS) or Lustre were the only real choices in the market. In retrospect, the choice was easy: you picked one of the two and away you went.  And nobody ever wondered if they made the right choice.   

@HPCpodcast: US Pressures ASML on Exports to China; US vs China Exascale; HPC Software

Following recent reports that Dutch chip manufacturing equipment maker ASML is under diplomatic pressure from the U.S. to regulate the export of its fabrication equipment  to China, we discuss market data, other suppliers of fab equipment, and a quick view of some of ASML’s own suppliers. ASML, the world’s only maker of extreme ultraviolet lithography systems, does not export to China EUV equipment instrumental to making the world’s most advanced chips used in HPC systems; it is the company’s older equipment, DUV (deep ultraviolet lithography)  systems, that the US is trying to block from the China market.
