Architectural Properties for HPC

High Performance computer systems can be regarded as the most powerful and flexible research instruments today. They are employed to model phenomena in fields so various as climatology, quantum chemistry, computational medicine, High-Energy Physics and many, many other areas.

Security at Big Data and HPC Scale

This paper is the first to explore a recent breakthrough with the introduction of the High Performance Computing (HPC) industry’s first Intelligence Community Directive (ICD) 503 (DCID 6/3 PL4) certified compliant and secure scale-out parallel file system solution, Seagate ClusterStorTM Secure Data Appliance, which is designed to address government and business enterprise need for collaborative and secure information sharing within a Multi-Level Security (MLS) framework at Big Data and HPC Scale.

Square Kilometer Array in HPC

Next generation radio telescopes will require tremendous amounts of compute power. With the current state of the art, the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), currently entering its pre-construction phase, will require in excess of one ExaFlop/s in order to process and reduce the massive amount of data generated by the sensors. The nature of the processing involved means that conventional high performance computing (HPC) platforms are not ideally suited. Con- sequently, the Square Kilometer Array project requires active and intensive involvement from both the high performance computing research community, as well as industry, in order to make sure a suitable system is available when the telescope is built. In this paper, we present a first analysis of the processing required, and a tool that will facilitate future analysis and external involvement.

HPC Gateway FUJITSU Software HPC Cluster Suite

Engineers, analysts and researchers using HPC systems face their own challenges in optimizing designs, interpreting data and discovery. Dealing with everyday complications of working with HPC systems, infrastructure and tools should not be one of them. Enabling HPC Simplicity means capturing knowledge and expertise within a solution that broadens HPC access and eases work, even for experienced users. This white paper describes just some of the ways the HPC Gateway offers this simplicity.

Algorithm Analysis for High Performance Computing

The Tarari® High-Performance Computing Processor accelerates the execution of complex algorithms used in high-performance computing (HPC) applications. The Processor allows high- performance computing users in industry, government and education to accelerate complex and compute-intensive applications

High Performance Computing Technology

Organizations that implement high-performance computing (HPC) technologies have a wide range of requirements. From small manufacturing suppliers to national research institutions, using significant computing technologies is critical to creating innovative products and leading-edge research. No two HPC installations are the same. For maximum return, budget, software requirements, performance and customization all must be considered before installing and operating a successful environment.

Design Optimization for HPC Clusters

Advanced simulation software can dramatically shorten the design phase by allowing engineers to virtually optimize and validate new ideas earlier in the process, minimizing the expense of building physical prototypes and streamlining real-world testing.

Meet Apollo – Reinventing HPC and the Supercomputer

Administrators, engineers and executives are now tasked with solving some of the world’s most complex challenges. This could revolve around advanced computations for science, business, education, pharmaceuticals and beyond. Here’s the challenge – many data centers are reaching peak levels of resource consumption; and there’s more work to be done. So how are engineers and scientists supposed to continue working around such high-demand applications? How can they continue to create ground-breaking research while still utilizing optimized infrastructure? How can a platform scale to the new needs and demands of these types of users and applications. This is where HP Apollo Systems help reinvent the modern data center and accelerate your business.

Cray XC ® Series Network

The Cray XC series is a distributed memory system developed as part of Cray’s participation in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) High Productivity Computing System (HPCS) program. Previously codenamed “Cascade,” the Cray XC system is capable of sustained multi-petaflops performance and features a hybrid architecture combining multiple processor technologies, a high performance network and a high performance operating system and programming environment.

Unified Computing System with Cisco

When used together, Bright Computing and Cisco Systems provide a complete, integrated HPC Ethernet solution that decreases the amount of time IT managers, administrators, and users spend managing a complex collection of vendors, networks, and hardware. With improved focus on results, productivity increases, and costs decrease.
