Scalable Inferencing for Autonomous Trucking

In this sponsored post, Tim Miller, Vice President, Product Marketing, One Stop Systems, discusses autonomous trucking and that to achieve AI Level 4 (no driver) in the vehicles, powerful AI inference hardware supporting many different inferencing engines operating and coordinating simultaneously is required.

Two Key Considerations of a Composable Infrastructure Cluster

In this sponsored post, our friends over at Silicon Mechanics indicated that these days, they’re getting a lot of interest from clients about composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI), including what the most critical elements are for CDI-based clusters. Successful deployments are more likely when clients understand why their design team focuses on certain areas more than others and how design decisions can impact end user experience, so this article outlines some key elements of CDI-based clusters.

It’s a Wrap! We’ll See You at ISC Next Year

[SPONSORED POST] After attending ISC, it’s safe to say that no remote conferencing or communication technology can ever replace the experience of face-to-face human interaction.  It was fantastic to engage directly with our customers and partners, sharing new platform developments and intriguing customer stories.  It is truly inspiring to hear about some of the new initiatives aimed to conquer challenges that seemed insurmountable in previous years.

NVIDIA InfiniBand Adaptive Routing Technology

In this white paper, “NVIDIA InfiniBand Adaptive Routing Technology,”we’ll look at how adaptive routing from NVIDIA plays such an important role, eliminating congestion and increasing data center performance. High-performance computing (HPC) and AI are the most essential tools fueling the advancement of science. To handle the ever-growing demands for higher computation performance and the increase in the complexity of research problems, the network needs to maximize its efficiency.

Hello World! ISC Is ON And We Are Back!

As the HPC world gathers in Hamburg, Germany for the International Supercomputing (ISC) conference, a deep and heartfelt sigh of relief can be heard from every corner of the globe.  After two years of virtual events, Zoom calls, webinars, working from home and travel restrictions we can finally gather together in person for an ISC show.  And as we share a handshake and a beer in Hamburg, we are at a much different place in the HPC community than we were in 2020.

System Design Decisions to Achieve Faster Results in Drug Discovery

When it comes to drug discovery, research is everything. The ability to accelerate research can make or break a business and, of course, save lives. However, key design considerations in HPC infrastructure design can make a dramatic difference in performance and maximize your cluster’s value. How do you maximize HPC/AI performance? We recommend you start by using commodity off the shelf (COTS) components and best-of-breed technologies from trusted partners. This lets you get more nodes for your money. This also avoids the problem of vendor lock-in, and the associated risk of being trapped into higher prices without the corresponding improvement….

Harvard’s Cannon Supercomputer is Anything but Loose

In this sponsored post, Dr. Scott Yockel, University Research Computing Officer at the Harvard University and Scott Tease, Vice President and General Manager of HPC and AI at Lenovo, discuss how the Cannon Supercomputer’s mission is clear – to be the computational powerhouse behind some of the most groundbreaking research of this world and beyond – from the impact of environmental pollutants on human health to the intricate study of black holes.

It’s Time to Resolve the Root Cause of Congestion

[SPONSORED POST] In this paper, Matthew Williams, CTO at Rockport Networks, explains how recent innovations in networking technologies have led to a new network architecture that targets the root causes of HPC network congestion. Congestion can delay workload completion times for crucial scientific and enterprise workloads, making HPC systems unpredictable and leaving high-cost cluster resources waiting for delayed data to arrive. Despite various brute-force attempts to resolve the congestion issue, the problem has persisted. Until now.

PNY Named 2021 NVIDIA Partner Network Americas Distribution Partner of the Year

[SPONSORED POST] On April 5, 2022, PNY was proud to be named the 2021 NVIDIA Partner Network (NPN) Americas Distribution Partner of the Year, for being a value-added partner and trusted advisor to the channel for NVIDIA’s professional visualization products for over 20 years.

JARVICE™ XE, The Platform Powering Hybrid Supercomputing

Since its debut in 2019 as the world’s first container-native, hybrid cloud supercomputing application delivery platform, JARVICE™ XE has seen rapid innovation and increased customer adoption.  As Nimbix became an Atos company in 2021, the JARVICE™ XE platform expanded its footprint across the industry’s broadest range of high-performance computing solutions – powering any combination of the fastest supercomputers in the world to public, private, and hybrid clouds, all while delivering the most intuitive and comprehensive user experience for scientists, engineers, developers, and independent software vendors (ISVs).
