HPE Launches 2 HPC-AI Offerings for ML Implementation and and Collaboration

Two announcements today from HPE underscore the strategic imperative of combining HPC and AI — along with demand for systems that ease AI implementation complexity. HPE announced its Machine Learning Development System, designed to accelerate AI training models at scale. HPE said the system delivers value in days, rather than the typical weeks or months, […]

It’s Time to Resolve the Root Cause of Congestion

[SPONSORED POST] In this paper, Matthew Williams, CTO at Rockport Networks, explains how recent innovations in networking technologies have led to a new network architecture that targets the root causes of HPC network congestion. Congestion can delay workload completion times for crucial scientific and enterprise workloads, making HPC systems unpredictable and leaving high-cost cluster resources waiting for delayed data to arrive. Despite various brute-force attempts to resolve the congestion issue, the problem has persisted. Until now.

Changes Afoot at Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, Exascale Computing Project

Change is afoot at the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) and at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF). Those who listened to Jeff Nichols’ appearance this month on the @HPCpodcast know about the upcoming retirement of Nichols, who is associate director of Oak Ridge National Laboratory with oversight over the National Center for Computational Sciences […]

JARVICE™ XE, The Platform Powering Hybrid Supercomputing

Since its debut in 2019 as the world’s first container-native, hybrid cloud supercomputing application delivery platform, JARVICE™ XE has seen rapid innovation and increased customer adoption.  As Nimbix became an Atos company in 2021, the JARVICE™ XE platform expanded its footprint across the industry’s broadest range of high-performance computing solutions – powering any combination of the fastest supercomputers in the world to public, private, and hybrid clouds, all while delivering the most intuitive and comprehensive user experience for scientists, engineers, developers, and independent software vendors (ISVs).

It’s Time to Resolve the Root Cause of Congestion

Today, every high-performance computing (HPC) workload running globally faces the same crippling issue: Congestion in the network.

Congestion can delay workload completion times for crucial scientific and enterprise workloads, making HPC systems unpredictable and leaving high-cost cluster resources waiting for delayed data to arrive. Despite various brute-force attempts to resolve the congestion issue, the problem has persisted. Until now.

In this paper, Matthew Williams, CTO at Rockport Networks, explains how recent innovations in networking technologies have led to a new network architecture that targets the root causes of HPC network congestion, specifically:

– Why today’s network architectures are not a sustainable approach to HPC workloads
– How HPC workload congestion and latency issues are directly tied to the network architecture
– Why a direct interconnect network architecture minimizes congestion and tail latency

Exascale in China? 40 Million Cores Used for Many-Body Quantum Simulation

For several years, some in the HPC community have suspected China of sandbagging the world on its true supercomputing capabilities. Those suspicions may have been confirmed with the publication of a research paper last week in which Chinese university researchers reported that 40 million heterogeneous cores within China’s Sunway supercomputer have been directed at a […]
