Introducing 200G HDR InfiniBand Solutions

As the first to 40Gb/s, 56Gb/s and 100Gb/s bandwidth, Mellanox has both boosted data center and cloud performance and improved return on investment at a pace that exceeds its own roadmap. To that end, Mellanox has now announced that it is the first company to enable 200Gb/s data speeds with Mellanox Quantum switches, ConnectX-6 adapters, and LinkX cables combining for an end-to end 200G HDR InfiniBand solution in 2018.

How Deep Learning is Causing a ‘Seismic Shift’ in the Retail Industry

 These days, taking big data further and integrating machine and deep learning means having a competitive edge in the retail industry. Analytics — and their analysis — have always been a cornerstone of retail success. And now, deep learning techniques are going to push the data boom to the next level. A new insideHPC special report, courtesy of Dell EMC and NVIDIA, explores how the retail industry is being transformed by machine and deep learning.

Reinventing the Retail Industry Through Machine and Deep Learning

Today, deep learning techniques are poised to disrupt the retail industry. As artificial neural networks become more and more efficient, and as graphics processing units get more and more powerful, so does their influence on retail. Download the new insideHPC special report, courtesy of Dell and NIVIDA, to learn more about how machine and deep learning is revolutionizing the retail industry. 

Video: Pure Storage Speeds I/O for AI & HPC Workloads at SC17

In this video from SC17 in Denver, Brian Gold from Pure Storage describes how the company’s innovative FlashBlade Systems speed up I/O for AI & HPC workloads. “From scientific research and movie rendering to artificial intelligence, applications push the limits on thousands of GPU cores or thousands of CPU servers. Parallel compute demands parallel storage. FlashBlade is the industry’s first all-flash storage purpose-built for modern analytics – architected from the ground-up to deliver a powerful cloud-era data platform that’s fast, big, and simple.”

For HPC and Deep Learning, GPUs are here to stay

In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, David Yip, HPC and Storage Business Development at OCF, provides his take on the place of GPU technology in HPC. “Using GPUs in the HPC datacenter in place of CPUs can dramatically increase the power requirements needed, but if your computational performance goes through the roof, then I’d argue it’s a trade-off worth making.”

HPE Steps Up with AI Innovation at SC17

Today at SC17, Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced new high-density compute and storage solutions that enable enterprises to harness the power of high performance computing and artificial intelligence applications. “Today, HPE is augmenting its proven supercomputing and large commercial HPC and AI capabilities with new high-density compute and storage solutions to accelerate market adoption by enabling organizations of all sizes to address challenges in HPC, big data, object storage and AI with more choice and flexibility.”

SC17 Preview: Artificial Intelligence and The Virtuous Cycle of Compute

In this video, Pradeep Dubey from Intel Labs describes his upcoming SC17 Invited Talk on Artificial Intelligence. “Dubey will discuss how the convergence of AI, Big Data, HPC systems, and algorithmic advances are transforming the relationship between computers and humans, disrupting past notions of a partnership where humans made all the “intelligent” decisions.”
