insideHPC Guide to NVIDIA EGX Platform: One Architecture for Every Workload

This technology guide sponsored by PNY describes how the NVIDIA® EGX™ Platform provides a single architecture to meet every data center workload need. PNY aids in GPU selection and testing allowing partners to equip customers with the  best NVIDIA EGX Platform solution based on their needs.

An Approach to Democratizing HPC-Style Computing

In this sponsored post, Ehsan Totoni, CTO of Bodo.ai, discusses opportunities to integrate a parallelization approach – capable of scaling to 10k cores or more – into popular cloud-based Data Warehouses to help speed large-scale analytics and ELT computing. And, because the model can be engineered for various special-purpose hardware and accelerators, there are opportunities to apply this to GPUs and FPGAs for media processing and encoding as well.

Infrastructure is Key to Realizing the Benefits of Government AI Programs

The company’s big data storage solutions provide data management speed and scale they need to thrive. The solution is a turnkey infrastructure that addresses the requirements of AI environments by removing the complexity and uncertainty with a proven combination of industry-leading intelligent storage and GPU technology.

Calling All HPC Programmers! Remove Code Barriers Using One Complete Software Suite

[SPONSORED POST] HPC systems are growing larger, more complex, and feature different heterogenous hardware components to accommodate different workloads. Find out how HPE Cray Programming Environment helps ease application development.

New Supercomputer Enables Rugged, Real-Time AI at the Edge

[SPONSORED POST] Program managers face hard tradeoffs bringing artificial intelligence to in-the-field use cases. This whitepaper, “New Supercomputer Enables Rugged, Real-Time AI at the Edge,” describes a new AI server from One Stop Systems that shows what capabilities they should look for in portable, rugged AI deployments. The Rigel: Edge Supercomputer addresses AI in the field requirements: high-performance computing (HPC) using optimized CPUs, advanced GPUs and flash memory NVMe drives, and high-bandwidth interconnects.

The Atos Perspective for Exascale – A Race Beyond 10^18

In this sponsored post, Agnès Boudot, SVP, Head of HPC, AI & Quantum at Atos, discusses how exascale means more than 10^18 or exaflops performance. For Atos, Exascale signifies delivering reliable, accurate, federated, and secured simulations anywhere (on-premises or in-the-cloud) at a reduced carbon footprint at exaflopic scale. Data is a crucial asset to society. The potential behind the data – the ultimate actionable insight generated from data, is the eventual game-changer in scientific and industry innovations and breakthroughs.

ECP Brings Visualization Software to Exascale and GPU-accelerated HPC Systems

The development of the VTK-m toolkit, a scientific visualization toolkit for emerging architectures, is a critical advancement in support of scientific visualization on exascale and GPU-accelerated systems for high-performance computing (HPC) users. VTK-m is needed because—counterintuitively—GPUs currently have software challenges when supporting large-scale scientific visualization tasks. For historical reasons, their massively multithreaded architecture, separate memory subsystems, and advent of new visualization workflows, such as in situ and in transit visualization, that bypass data movement for big-data simulations are currently problematic for scientific visualization.
