How Exascale will Move Earthquake Simulation Forward

In this video from the HPC User Forum in Tucson, David McCallen from LBNL describes how exascale computing capabilities will enhance earthquake simulation for improved structural safety. “With the major advances occurring in high performance computing, the ability to accurately simulate the complex processes associated with major earthquakes is becoming a reality. High performance simulations offer a transformational approach to earthquake hazard and risk assessments that can dramatically increase our understanding of earthquake processes and provide improved estimates of the ground motions that can be expected in future earthquakes.”

Industry Insights: Download the Results of our AI & HPC Perceptions Survey

The results from our HPC & AI peception survey are here. “90 percent of all respondents felt that their business will ultimately be impacted by AI. Although almost all respondents see AI as playing a role in the future of the business, the survey also revealed the top three industries that will see the most impact. Healthcare came in first, followed by life sciences, and finance/transportation tied in third place. The possibilities of AI are seemingly endless. And the shift has already begun.”

NREL Report Evaluates LiquidCool Solutions for the Datacenter

NREL researchers are testing immersive liquid cooling technologies that could potentially bring huge energy savings to HPC datacenters. With worldwide datacenters consuming an estimated 70 billion kWh per year, a disruptive energy-saving solution is needed, and a liquid-submerged server (LSS) technology from LiquidCool Solutions might be the answer. “The testing confirmed that the LSS technology could not only maintain target temperatures under heavy computational load, but that the hot liquid could be used to heat buildings more efficiently than NREL’s current solution.”

Resource Management Across the Private/Public Cloud Divide

This is the final entry in a insideHPC series of features that explores new resource management solutions for workload convergence, such as Bright Cluster Manager by Bright Computing. This article highlights how resource management systems that can manage clusters on-premises or in the cloud greatly simplify cluster management. That way, different tools do not have to be learned for managing a cluster based on whether it is located in the company data center or in the cloud.

HPC System Management: Scheduling to Optimize Infrastructure

Whether the application is floating-point intensive, integer based, uses a lot of memory, has significant I/O requirements, or its widespread use is limited by purchased licenses, a system that assigns the right job to the right server is key to maximizing the computing infrastructure. We continue our insideHPC series of features exploring new resource management solutions for workload convergence, such as Bright Cluster Manager by Bright Computing. This article discusses how scheduling can work to optimize infrastructure and improve HPC system management. 

How Deep Learning is Causing a ‘Seismic Shift’ in the Retail Industry

 These days, taking big data further and integrating machine and deep learning means having a competitive edge in the retail industry. Analytics — and their analysis — have always been a cornerstone of retail success. And now, deep learning techniques are going to push the data boom to the next level. A new insideHPC special report, courtesy of Dell EMC and NVIDIA, explores how the retail industry is being transformed by machine and deep learning.

The 3 Types of Cloud Computing for HPC Systems Management

Three types of clouds have been developed: public clouds, private clouds and hybrid clouds. We continue our insideHPC series of features exploring new resource management solutions for workload convergence, such as Bright Cluster Manager by Bright Computing. This article explores the three types of cloud computing, as well as how cloud computing can work to reduce CAPEX. 

Research Report Reveals Divided Vision of Future Human-Machine Partnership

Today Dell Technologies released a research report that examines the future of human machine partnerships and reveals that business leaders are divided regarding the future. “Half of the 3,800 global business leaders surveyed forecast that automated systems will free up their time, while the other 50% believe otherwise.”

Clusters & Cloud Computing: Speeding up HPC Systems Management

We continue our insideHPC series of features exploring new resource management solutions for workload convergence, such as Bright Cluster Manager by Bright Computing. This article focuses on how clustering servers and utilizing cloud computing can help your enterprise achieve more flexibility and speed — as well as improve HPC systems management.

Engineering a Better Portal for Scientific Discovery

Engineers from ESnet and the Globus team have designed a new approach that makes data sharing faster, more reliable, and more secure. As described in a new report, the “Science DMZ” provides a new architecture to meet increasing demands for accessing shared data.
