insideHPC Special Report: Intel HPC Orchestrator Solves HPC’s Software Challenges

This InsideHPC Special Report explores the challenges of managing open source HPC middleware, and unpacks the unique solution offered by Intel HPC Orchestrator. Intel Orchestrator is the Intel-supported distribution of the OpenHPC stack that has been tested and validated on the most recent hardware. To learn more, download the full white paper.

A Simpler Path to Reliable, Productive HPC

HPC is becoming a competitive requirement as high performance data analysis (HPDA) joins multi-physics simulation as table stakes for successful innovation across a growing range of industries and research disciplines. Yet complexity remains a very real hurdle for both new and experienced HPC users. Learn how new Intel products, including the Intel HPC Orchestrator, can work to simplify some of the complexities and challenges that can arise in high performance computing environments. 

Fujitsu Powers KNL Remote Access Program with Intel HPC Orchestrator

In this video from ISC 2017, Tom Krueger from Intel and John Wagner from Fujitsu describe the new KNL Remote Access Program. Now, with the power of Intel HPC Orchestrator, Fujitsu customers can gain access to a small cluster of Intel Xeon Phi processors to test and tune their codes. The freely available cluster environment enables users to participate in activities such as benchmarking, code development, as well as code optimization and validation either using the pre-installed applications or those brought by the user.”

Intel HPC Orchestrator – Now with Altair PBS Pro Inside

In this video from ISC 2017, Bill Nitzberg from Altair describes how PBS Pro adds powerful workload management capabilities to Intel HPC Orchestrator.

Offering PBS Professional as the preferred workload manager for Intel’s HPC Orchestrator provides a comprehensive and reliable workload management product to customers,” said Piush Patel, Vice President, Corporate Development for HPC at Altair. “Altair is committed to the pursuit of exascale computing and the democratization of HPC for organizations to achieve the next great innovations. Intel’s HPC Orchestrator with PBS Pro is a great step toward both goals.”

Intel® HPC Orchestrator and OpenHPC: Trends and Directions

Sharing a common architecture, Intel® HPC Orchestrator and OpenHPC are changing the face of HPC by providing a cohesive and comprehensive system software stack. Dr. Robert Wisniewski, Chief Software Architect Extreme Scale Computing at Intel Corporation, discusses the advantages of this approach and how to leverage it to bring together HPC and the cloud.

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.

Vendor Panel: The Changing Landscape of HPC

In this video from the PBS Works User Group 2017, Rich Brueckner from insideHPC moderates a vendor panel on The Changing Landscape of HPC. “When it comes down to it, the HPC community depends on a healthy ecosystem. In this panel discussion, we will explore emerging technology trends that are reshaping the way high performance computing is delivered to the end user.”

Reliability, Scalability and Performance – the Impact of Intel HPC Orchestrator

When it comes to getting the performance out of your HPC system, it’s the small things that count. David Lombard, Sr. Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation, explains. ” Intel HPC Orchestrator encapsulates the important tradeoffs, and pays attention to the small details that can greatly impact how well the underlying features of the hardware are leveraged to deliver better performance and scalability.”

A Seat at the Table – The Value of Women in High-Performance Computing

It’s fair to say that women continue to be underrepresented in STEM, but the question is whether there is a systemic bias making it difficult for women to join and succeed in tech industries, or has the tech industry failed to motivate and persuade women to join? Intel’s Figen Ulgen shares her view.

OpenHPC: A Comprehensive System Software Stack

Bob Wisniewski from Intel presents: OpenHPC: A Cohesive and Comprehensive System Software Stack. “OpenHPC is a collaborative, community effort that initiated from a desire to aggregate a number of common ingredients required to deploy and manage High Performance Computing (HPC) Linux clusters including provisioning tools, resource management, I/O clients, development tools, and a variety of scientific libraries.
