The Race for a Unified Analytics Warehouse

This white paper from our friends over at Vertica discusses how the race for a unified analytics warehouse is on. The data warehouse has been around for almost three  decades. Shortly after big data platforms were introduced in the late 2000s, there was talk that the data  warehouse was dead—but it never went away. When big data platform vendors realized that the data warehouse was here to stay, they started building databases on top of their file system and conceptualizing a  data lake that would replace the data warehouse. It never did.

Turbocharge your HPC Hybrid Cloud with Policy-based Automation

While there are many advantages to running in the cloud, the issues can be complex. Users need to figure out how to securely extend on-premise clusters, devise solutions for data handling and constantly keep an eye on costs. Univa’s Robert Lalonde, Vice President and General Manager, Cloud, explores how to turbocharge your HPC hybrid cloud with tools like policy-based automation, and how closing the loop between workload scheduling and cloud-automation can drive higher performance and dramatic cost efficiencies.

Data Management: The Elephant in the Room for HPC Hybrid Cloud

While there are many benefits to leveraging the cloud for HPC, there are challenges as well. Along with security and cost, data handling is consistently identified as a top barrier. “In this short article, we discuss the challenge of managing data in hybrid clouds, offer some practical tips to makes things easier, and explain how automation can play a key role in improving efficiency.”

Building the business case for Hybrid HPC Cloud

Over the past two years, we’ve seen a dramatic acceleration in cloud adoption for HPC. Intuitively cloud computing makes sense — it enables organizations to rent rather than buy expensive HPC hardware, deploy solutions faster, reduce capital investments, and focus on core competencies. Software company Univa highlights the reason behind the recent cloud adoption boom among the HPC community, and the benefits of the hybrid HPC cloud.

HPC Trends Survey from DDN Reveals Rising Deployment of Flash Tiers & Private/Hybrid Clouds

“The results of DDN’s annual HPC Trends Survey reflect very accurately what HPC end users tell us and what we are seeing in their data center infrastructures. The use of private and hybrid clouds continues to grow although most HPC organizations are not storing as large a percentage of their data in public clouds as they anticipated even a year ago. Performance remains the top challenge, especially when handling mixed I/O workloads and resolving I/O bottlenecks.”
