SGI Powers Energy Research at UFRJ in Brazil

The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro is embarking on ground-breaking energy research powered by a new SGI Computer. The high performance computing system will be installed through the SGI valued partner, Versatus HPC.

Setting a Path for the Next-Generation of High-Performance Computing Architecture

At SC15, Intel talked about some transformational high-performance computing technologies and the architecture—Intel® Scalable System Framework (Intel® SSF). Intel describes Intel SSF as “an advanced architectural approach for simplifying the procurement, deployment, and management of HPC systems, while broadening the accessibility of HPC to more industries and workloads.” Intel SSF is designed to eliminate the traditional bottlenecks; the so called power, memory, storage, and I/O walls that system builders and operators have run into over the years.

Lustre* Accelerates the Convergence of Big Data and HPC in Financial Services

Across industries, companies are beginning to watch the convergence of High-performance Computing (HPC) and Big Data. Many organizations in the Financial Services Industry (FSI) are running their financial simulations on business analytics systems, some on HPC clusters. But they have a growing problem: integrating analytics of non-structured data from sources like social media with their internal data. Learn how Lustre can help solves these challenges.

Video: Intel Commitment to Lustre

“For High Performance Computing users who leverage open-source Lustre software, a good file system for big data is now getting even better. Building on its substantial contributions to the Lustre community, Intel is rolling out new features that will make the file system more scalable, easier to use, and more accessible to enterprise customers.”

Video: From Lab to Enterprise – Growing the Lustre Ecosystem

“Lustre’s original feature set targeted the workflows of the leading DOE labs who funded and supported its development. As the Lustre ecosystem grows, the workflows Lustre must support are becoming increasingly diverse, demanding corresponding expansion of its core feature set and the subsystems that operate around it. This talk describes how Lustre is maturing and growing to support the sometimes conflicting demands imposed by this diversity and outlines some significant areas for future development with a view to promoting ongoing discussion in the community.”
