Supercomputing Cancer Data for Treatment Clues

In this video, researchers use TACC supercomputers in war against cancer. “Next-generation sequencing technology allows us to observe genomes and their activity in unprecedented detail,” he said. “It’s also making a lot of biomedical research increasingly computational, so it’s great to have a resource like TACC available to us.”

X-ISS Powers Cloud HPC with Dell EMC

In this video, Deepak Khosala describes how X-ISS delivers Cloud HPC with the help of Dell EMC. “Our role in working with customers is to integrate, manage, and maintain HPC cluster systems, as well as monitor, report, and deliver analytics that are important to HPC users. We are a business-driven HPC consulting company that provides exceptional technical computing solutions through management and analytics software.”

Video: Storage Aware Job Scheduling

“In any HPC environment, storage is an integral and often unaccounted performance component of the infrastructure alongside compute. The health and performance of the overall infrastructure can be highly dependent on storage. Storage related performance issues can lead to adverse effects on overall job throughput, often resulting in business impact. In a reactive manner, the issue is often addressed by throttling the job flow. A more elegant and proactive approach would be to establish a feedback loop between storage and compute with the assistance of a job scheduler. This talk will explore the need for such a feedback loop, its benefits, and potential implementation scenarios for embarrassingly parallel HPC workloads.”

Finding the Right Solutions with Dell EMC HPC Innovation Lab

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Onur Celebioglu describes the Dell EMC HPC Innovation Lab, where his team does all of the integration testing and benchmarking for high performance computing systems. “Every HPC workload and associated data set has specific server, storage, networking and software configuration and tuning requirements to achieve optimal performance. The Dell EMC HPC Innovation Lab has been established to provide customers best practices for configuring and tuning systems and their applications for optimal performance and efficiency through blogs, whitepapers and other resources.”
