Dell EMC Joins Atos Global Reseller Alliance

Today Atos in Europe announced a new reseller agreement in which Dell EMC will resell Atos’ high-end 8 to 16 sockets x86 Bullion servers. “Over the last few years, Dell EMC and Atos have been working together to combine Bullion servers and Dell EMC unified storage solutions to provide our customers with a leading solution for deployment of mission-critical SAP HANA projects,” said Ravi Pendekanti, Senior Vice President at Dell EMC.

Machine Learning Technology: A Guide to Scaling Up and Out

Frameworks, applications, libraries and toolkits—journeying through the world of deep learning can be daunting. If you’re trying to decide whether or not to begin a machine or deep learning project, there are several points that should first be considered. This is the second article in a five-part series that covers the steps to take before launching a machine learning startup. This article covers popular machine learning technology.

Dell EMC Supercomputer to Power OzGRav Studies of Black Holes

Today Dell EMC announced it will build a supercomputer to power Swinburne University of Technology’s groundbreaking research into astrophysics and gravitational waves. “We will be looking for gravitational waves that help us learn more about supernovas, the formation of stars, intergalactic gases and more,” said Professor Bailes. “It’s exciting to think that we as OzGRav could make the next landmark discovery in gravitational wave astrophysics – and the Dell EMC supercomputer will allow us to capture, visualise and process the data to make those discoveries.”

Podcast: 18 Petaflop Stampede 2 Supercomputer Powers Research at TACC

In this Texas Standard podcast, Dan Stanzione from TACC describes Stampede2, the most powerful university supercomputer in the United States. “Phase 1 of the Stampede2 rollout, now complete, features 4,200 Knights Landing (KNL) nodes, the second generation of processors based on Intel’s Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture. Later this summer Phase 2 will add 1,736 Intel Xeon Skylake nodes.”

Intel Xeon Scalable Platform Enables Major Advancements for HPC

Described by Intel as the biggest platform advancement in a decade, the new Intel Xeon Scalable Platform accelerates high-performance computing workloads and provides new capabilities to advance emerging fields like artificial intelligence and self-driving vehicles.

What Developers Need to Consider When Exploring Machine Learning

18 Petaflop Stampede2 Supercomputer Dedicated at TACC

Stampede2 is the newest strategic supercomputing resource for the nation’s research and education community, enabling scientists and engineers across the U.S., from multiple disciplines, to answer questions at the forefront of science and engineering. “Building on the success of the initial Stampede system, the Stampede team has partnered with other institutions as well as industry to bring the latest in forward-looking computing technologies combined with deep computational and data science expertise to take on some of the most challenging science and engineering frontiers,” said Irene Qualters, director of NSF’s Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure.

Dell Builds Bracewell Supercomputer for Bionic Vision Research at CSIRO in Australia

Today CSIRO, Australia’s top science agency, announced deployment of a new Dell EMC supercomputer, kicking off a new generation of research in artificial intelligence. “This new system will provide greater scale and processing power we need to build our computer vision systems by optimization of processing over broader scenarios, represented by much larger sets of images, to help train the software to understand and represent the world. We’ll be able to take our computer vision research to the next level, solving problems through leveraging large scale image data that most labs around the world aren’t able to.” Assoc. Professor Barnes said.
