At Virtual SC20: Quantum Corp. Takes on High Performance Storage of Unstructured Data

Quantum Corp. at Virtual SC20 is showcasing a raft of recently announced high performance storage and data management products. These include Quantum ATFS, a new file-based storage platform with integrated data classification, along with an updated version of Quantum StorNext 7 File System, which includes the ability to automate data placement on NVMe. We spoke […]

At Virtual SC20: DDN Showcases Updated Exascaler Data Management, Midrange Intelliflash Capabilities for HPC, AI

At Virtual SC20, high performance storage vendor DDN, provider of AI and data management software and hardware solutions, gave us an update on its line of Exascaler appliances, which DDN VP for Product Management James Coomer said has significant upgrades in its data management capabilities “to serve all kinds of use cases in the data […]

At Virtual SC20: ‘AI on the Fly’ – One Stop Systems Takes HPC and AI to the Edge

At VirtualSC20, we visited with Jaan Mannik of One Stop Systems to talk about the company’s “AI on the Fly” strategy. Mannik, who is OSS director of western U.S. & international sales, says AI on the Fly takes on the technical challenge of bringing the power of data center to the edge for advanced compute- […]

Where to Go and What to Do at Virtual SC20: These HPC Experts Give Guidance

As you plan for next week’s Virtual SC20, we thought it would be helpful to ask four HPC industry experts for guidance regarding the sessions, trends, news and other highlights worthy of your attention coming out of what one of our panelists, Dr. Thomas Sterling of the University of Indiana (and of Beowulf cluster pioneering fame), described as “a diverse and rich” program agenda.

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: NERSC’s Jeff Broughton on the End of the Top500 and Exascale Begetting Petaflops in a Rack

NERSC’s Jeff Broughton career extends back to HPC ancient times (1979) when, fresh out of college, he was promoted to a project management role at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory – a big job for a young man. Broughton has taken on big jobs in the ensuing 40 years. In this interview, he talks about such […]

The Dell Technologies HPC Community Interviews: Dell HPC Leader Thierry Pellegrino Talks Collaborative Inspiration and Why ‘the Whole World Is Morphing into HPC’

Thierry Pellegrino is vice president and general manager of HPC at Dell Technologies, putting him in a leadership position of a vendor whose servers are used in some of the world’s most powerful HPC clusters. In this interview, Pellegrino explains Dell’s three-pronged HPC strategy (“democratize, optimize, advance HPC and AI”). He also talks about how […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Irene Qualters’ Long View of HPC, from a Start-up Called Cray to Today’s ‘No-Analog’ Research at Los Alamos

Irene Qualters, a senior-level manager at Los Alamos National Laboratory, has been at the forefront of the convergence of supercomputing and science for decades, extending back to joining Cray as one of that company’s first 100 employees. Few members of the HPC community can match her wealth of experience and wisdom regarding the future of scientific computing and its “no-analog” physics-informed AI exploration of problems confronting our planet, such as climate change.

Dell Technologies HPC Community Interviews: Nvidia’s Geetika Gupta on a Decade of Driving GPUs into the Data Center

Geetika Gupta, senior product manager at Nvidia, is a veteran of the company’s drive to bring GPU processing power to the data center. In this conversation, part of our Dell Technologies HPC Community series of interviews, Gupta talks about her work  in product management of multiple generations of Nvidia GPUs – including Kepler, Pascal and […]

Video: Exascale for Earth System Modeling of Storms, Droughts, Sea Level Rise

In this interview, award winning scientist Mark Taylor at Sandia National Laboratories’ Center for Computing Research talks about the use of exascale-class supercomputers – to be delivered to three U.S. Department of Energy national labs in 2021 – for large-scale weather and water resource forecasting. Taylor is chief computational scientist for the DOE’s Energy Exascale […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: ORNL Distinguished Scientist Travis Humble on Coupling Classical and Quantum Computing

Oak Ridge National Lab’s Travis Humble has worked at the headwaters of quantum computing research for years. In this interview, he talks about his particular areas of interest, including integration of quantum computing with classical HPC systems.  “We’ve already recognized that we can accelerate solving scientific applications using quantum computers,” he says. “These demonstrations are just early examples of how we expect quantum computers can take us to the most challenging problems for scientific discovery.”
