Riding the Wave of Machine Learning and Deep Learning

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning — decades-old technologies that are now electrifying the computing industry — for all intents and purposes, seem to be in the process of transforming corporate America. This article is part of a special insideHPC report that explores trends in machine learning and deep learning.

Intel Moves Forward with Machine Learning with Dell EMC

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Steve Stein from Intel describes the company’s powerful processing solutions for Machine Learning. “With Intel technology, artificial intelligence helps businesses accelerate solutions, automate operations, and gather better insights to make smarter decisions.”

How Par-Tec Software will Power the 5 Petaflop Dell EMC Booster Supercomputer coming to Jülich

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Hugo Falter from Par-Tec describes the company’s software contribution to the 5 Petaflop booster Dell EMC supercomputer coming the Julich Supercomputing Center. “ParaStation MPI software from ParTec will be used to keep the new Booster system running efficiently. The resiliency-related extensions of ParaStation MPI support fine-grained recovery of parallel application tasks.”

X-ISS Powers Cloud HPC with Dell EMC

In this video, Deepak Khosala describes how X-ISS delivers Cloud HPC with the help of Dell EMC. “Our role in working with customers is to integrate, manage, and maintain HPC cluster systems, as well as monitor, report, and deliver analytics that are important to HPC users. We are a business-driven HPC consulting company that provides exceptional technical computing solutions through management and analytics software.”

Video: Storage Aware Job Scheduling

“In any HPC environment, storage is an integral and often unaccounted performance component of the infrastructure alongside compute. The health and performance of the overall infrastructure can be highly dependent on storage. Storage related performance issues can lead to adverse effects on overall job throughput, often resulting in business impact. In a reactive manner, the issue is often addressed by throttling the job flow. A more elegant and proactive approach would be to establish a feedback loop between storage and compute with the assistance of a job scheduler. This talk will explore the need for such a feedback loop, its benefits, and potential implementation scenarios for embarrassingly parallel HPC workloads.”

Finding the Right Solutions with Dell EMC HPC Innovation Lab

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Onur Celebioglu describes the Dell EMC HPC Innovation Lab, where his team does all of the integration testing and benchmarking for high performance computing systems. “Every HPC workload and associated data set has specific server, storage, networking and software configuration and tuning requirements to achieve optimal performance. The Dell EMC HPC Innovation Lab has been established to provide customers best practices for configuring and tuning systems and their applications for optimal performance and efficiency through blogs, whitepapers and other resources.”

Jay Boisseau on How Dell EMC is Democratizing High Performance Computing

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Jay Boisseau describes the mission of the community and how Dell EMC is democratizing high performance computing. “​The Dell EMC HPC Community is a worldwide technical forum that fosters the exchange of ideas among researchers, computer scientists, technologists, and engineers and promotes the advancement of innovative, powerful HPC solutions.”

Intel® Architecture Deployment at Texas Tech University Relies on Intel® HPC Orchestrator

When it came time to perform a substantial upgrade of the TTU IT Division’s High Performance Computing Center at Texas Tech University, the challenge was to easily manage such a large expansion, which would effectively double the center’s parallel computing capacity. Since the existing 10,000+ core system includes several equipment generations, as well as the latest technology from Intel, HPCC staff at TTU chose Intel® HPC Orchestrator for the task. In this article, Alan Sill, Senior Director of the TTU HPCC, explains why.

How R-Systems Powers Cloud HPC with Dell EMC

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Michael Senizaiz and Brian Kucic from R-Systems describe how the company delivers HPC in the Cloud as part of Dell EMC customer solutions. “Dell provides technical expertise and optimized cloud computing resources to the commercial and academic research communities. Using our flexible service offerings and simplified business model, you can access on-demand HPC capability— when you need it, as you need it. This allows you to minimize time, maximize effectiveness and add value to your HPC results.”
