Comparing Price-performance of HPE GreenLake for HPC vs. the Public Cloud

[SPONSORED POST] In this article, Max Alt, HPE’s Distinguished Technologist and Director, Hybrid HPC, discusses recent real-world tests measuring the price-performance of HPC applications used in a range of workloads – including High Performance Linpack (HPL) and OpenFOAM CFD solver. The tests compared performance on AWS and Oracle Cloud solutions powered by Intel® processors against HPE GreenLake for HPC solutions powered by AMD EPYC™ processors.

Building the GPU-accelerated Datacenter

[Sponsored Post] To learn about GPU-accelerated datacenters, join the upcoming live webinar from Thinkmate and PNY. You’ll hear about the future of the datacenter, why the GPU is crucial, the technology behind GPU acceleration, and what sort of options exist for different industries or types of organizations.

HPC as a Service to Accelerate Transformational Growth

[SPONSORED POST] This whitepaper discusses how HPC delivered as a service through HPE GreenLake combines the power and compliance of on-premises systems, with cloud-like financial flexibility, ease of management, and consumption-based pricing. HPE managed services and support help accelerate HPC time to value. Without upheaval, customers get a smoother, faster path to better business through HPC.

Taking Altair Structural & CFD Analysis to New Heights with the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ Processors

At the recent ISC 2021 virtual event in June, I sat down with Kevin Mayo of AMD and InsideHPC’s Doug Black. We discussed how the latest AMD EPYC™ processors are helping accelerate Altair applications for the most demanding engineering workloads. AMD and Altair have been busily collaborating to deliver better performance for resource-intensive FEA and CFD applications. In this sponsored post, we share some benchmarks resulting from these efforts below.

Delivering on the Promise of Hybrid Multi Cloud for HPC

[Sponsored Post] HPC cloud usage is expanding across all industry sectors with a strong desire from customers for a flexible hybrid model that can be deployed in a multi-cloud scenario. With the acquisition of Nimbix and the combination of Nimbix JARVICE XE with existing tools and frameworks, Andy Grant, Vice President at Atos describes how the company has created the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of cloud HPC products and services with which to address the full range of envisaged HPC usage scenarios.

Bright Helps Life Sciences Customer Make the Cloud a More Economical Choice than On-premise for their HPC Environment

[SPONSORED POST] In this contributed article, Bill Wagner, CEO of Bright Computing, discusses how Bright Computing has provided a proven method for companies on the outside of HPC looking in to affordably leverage cloud resources and achieve tangible competitive advantage. Companies in Life Sciences have been able to provision additional compute capacity on the fly as needed while keeping their costs much lower than maintaining a cluster in their data center, enabling them to compete effectively with much larger competitors.

Accelerate Artificial Intelligence Initiatives with DDN and NVIDIA at Any Scale

[Sponsored Post] In this whitepaper, DDN and NVIDIA invited ESG to interview several of their joint customers that have been running production AI environments to better understand their needs and to confirm the value that DDN and NVIDIA are providing. ESG research sheds light on the rapid rise of AI initiatives among businesses, including how businesses are leveraging AI to create value. Business have been rapidly investing in AI and ML projects because they work.

Putting Data in The Driver Seat Can Change Everything

[Sponsored Post] When you have data in the driver’s seat, it’s a smooth ride. Any other operator, you risk a bumpy experience. The explosion of Digital Transformation is driving a rapid increase in investment in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies as enterprises seek a competitive edge.

Enhancing Security with High Performance AI Capability Deployed at the Rugged Edge

In this sponsored post from One Stop Systems, we see that whether surviving in a fast-moving battlefield situation, protecting sensitive industrial or transportation hub assets, or ensuring uninterrupted operation of critical national infrastructure, intelligent long-range surveillance is critical.  The ability to provide 24/7 remote long range threat detection and situational awareness coupled with human-machine control allows for the fast and appropriate threat response that is fundamental to addressing these security imperatives.

Spend Less on HPC/AI Storage (and more on CPU/GPU compute)

[SPONSORED POST] In this whitepaper courtesy of HPE, you’ll learn about the three approaches that can help you to feed your CPU- and GPU-accelerated compute nodes without I/O bottlenecks while creating efficiencies in Gartner’s Run category. As the market share leader in HPC servers, HPE saw the convergence of classic modeling and simulation with AI methods such as machine learning and deep learning coming and now offers you a new portfolio of parallel HPC/AI storage systems that are purpose engineered to address all of the previously mentioned challenges—in a cost-effective way.
