Cycle Computing’s Tim Carroll on how Dell EMC Powers Cloud HPC

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Tim Carroll from Cycle Computing describes how the company makes it easier to move big HPC workloads to the Cloud with the help of Dell EMC. “Dell EMC has embraced the notion that hybrid environments of internal and external resources will be the optimal path for customers.”

AMAX Showcases Virtualization Solutions for GPUs at GTC 2017

In this video from GTC 2017, Dr. Rene Meyer from AMAX describes the company’s innovative virtualization solutions for GPU computing. “What we are showcasing here is a very interesting solution—a hardware/software solution. We not only present the hardware, but we put a software layer on top, which allows you to virtualize GPUs in those machines.”

Video: Optimizing HPC Service Delivery at Boeing

Jim Glidewell from Boeing presented this talk at the PBS Works User Group. “There are multiple elements to providing an effective and efficient HPC service. This presentation will share some of our strategies for extracting maximal value from our HPC hardware and providing a service that meets the needs of our engineering customers.”

Supercomputing More Efficient Paper Production with HPC4MFG

Industry is collaborating with researchers at LBNL to significantly reduce paper production costs and increase energy efficiencies. “The major purpose is to leverage our advanced simulation capabilities, high performance computing resources and industry paper press data to help develop integrated models to accurately simulate the water papering process.”

Adnan Khaleel on how Dell EMC Delivers HPC in the Cloud

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Adnan Khaleel, Global Strategist for HPC at Dell describes how the company works with partners to deliver HPC in the Cloud. “By tapping into on-demand cloud resources as needed, your organization can access high-end computing power without the additional capital investment of building and maintaining your own HPC cluster.”

Learning from ZFS to Scale Storage on and under Containers

“What is so new about the container environment that a new class of storage software is emerging to address these use cases? And can container orchestration systems themselves be part of the solution? As is often the case in storage, metadata matters here. We are implementing in the open source OpenEBS.io some approaches that are in some regards inspired by ZFS to enable much more efficient scale out block storage for containers that itself is containerized. The goal is to enable storage to be treated in many regards as just another application while, of course, also providing storage services to stateful applications in the environment.”

Evolving Storage and Cyber Infrastructure at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation

Ellen Salmon from NASA gave this talk at the 2017 MSST conference. “This talk will describe recent developments at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation, which is funded by NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, and supports the specialized data storage and computational needs of weather, ocean, and climate researchers, as well as astrophysicists, heliophysicists, and planetary scientists.”

Video: 5 Petaflop Booster System from Dell EMC coming to Jülich

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting in Austin, Thomas Lippert from the Jülich Supercomputing Centre describes their pending 5 Petaflop Booster system. “This will be the first-ever demonstration in a production environment of the Cluster-Booster concept, pioneered in DEEP and DEEP-ER at prototype-level, and a considerable step towards the implementation of JSC’s modular supercomputing concept,” explains Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre.

The New Nvidia HGX-1: GPU Power for Machine Learning at Hyperscale

Rob Ober from Nvidia describes the company’s new HGX-1 reference platform for GPU computing. “Powered by NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and NVIDIA NVLink high-speed interconnect technology; the HGX-1 comes as AI workloads—from autonomous driving and personalized healthcare to superhuman voice recognition—are taking off in the cloud.”
