How AI is Changing the Media & Entertainment Industry

This insideHPC guide series explores how artificial intelligence is revolutionizing and evolving the media and entertainment industries. To get things started, this post offers up an overview of how AI is impacting the entertainment industry and the future of these sectors. 

A Guide to High Performance Computing in the AWS Cloud

A new ebook from Intel and AWS explores how AWS cloud can mitigate some of today’s top HPC challenges and enable engineers and researchers to innovate without constraints. “Most HPC processing is still conducted using on-premises systems. But for those companies unwilling to invest in new hardware to handle peak demands, moving HPC workloads to the cloud may be the answer.”

HPC Cloud Drives Innovation & Accelerates Time to Results

HPC applications and workloads have been constrained by limited on-premises infrastructure capacity, high capital expenditures and the constant need for technology refreshes. But there may be an answer: running your HPC workloads in the cloud. “According to the report, hundreds of companies in life sciences, financial services, manufacturing, energy and geo sciences, media and entertainment are solving complex challenges and speeding up time to results using HPC on AWS.”

Virtualization Adds Value, Benefits to HPC Environments

VMware explores the concepts of virtual throughput clusters and CPU overcommitment with VMware vSphere to create multitenant and agile virtual HPC computing environments.

Xtreme-D Showcases Innovative Solutions for Managing HPC Clouds at ISC 2018

In this video from ISC 2018 in Frankfurt, Naoki Shibata from Xtreme-D describes the company’s the company’s innovative solutions for deploying and managing HPC clouds. “Customers can use our easy-to-deploy turnkey HPC cluster system on public cloud, including setup of HPC middleware (OpenHPC-based packages), configuration of SLURM, OpenMPI, and OSS HPC applications such as OpenFOAM. The user can start the HPC cluster (submitting jobs) within 10 minutes on the public cloud.”

How AI & Machine Intelligence is Assisting Clinicians

According to a new Ovum white paper, sponsored by NVIDIA, there is a huge opportunity to help physicians with AI-based systems that can cut down on the workload across protocoling, imaging analysis, and automated reporting of the results.

NVIDIA Offers Framework to Solve AI System Challenges

At the recent NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2018, Jensen Huang, NVIDIA President and CEO, during his presentation focused on a new framework designed to contextualize the key challenges using AI systems and delivering deep learning-based solutions. A new white paper sponsored by NVIDIA outlines these requirements — coined PLASTER.

Where Ready Nodes are the Optimal Choice

The perennial question for IT asset acquisition is whether to build or consume, and there is no ‘one size fits all’ answer to the question. Individual components provide the maximum flexibility, but also require the maximum of self support. Reference architectures provide the recipe and guidance, but the customer still has the responsibility for making the system work.

Network Switch Configuration with Dell EMC Ready Nodes

Storage networks are constantly evolving. From traditional Fibre Channel to IP-based storage networks, each technology has its place in the data center. IP-based storage solutions have two main network topologies to choose from based on the technology and administration requirements. Dedicated storage network topology, shared leaf-spine network, software defined storage, and iSCSI SAN are all supported. Hybrid network architectures are common, but add to the complexity.

Determining Where & How to Adopt Machine Learning Technology

The is the final entry in a five-part insideHPC series that takes an in-depth look at how machine learning, deep learning and AI are being used in the energy industry. Read on for help determining where and how to adopt machine learning technology in your business.
