Slidecast: DDN Strategic Vision for High Performance Storage

“For more than a decade, DDN’s innovative, proven technology has been at the forefront of solving big data storage challenges in the world’s largest and most demanding environments,” said Molly Rector, CMO and EVP of Product Management at DDN. “Today, our vision and roadmap is being increasingly influenced by our enterprise and commercial HPC customers who are demanding new features in addition to the highest availability, reliability, scalability and best price/performance.”

Slidecast: SRC Saturn 1 Server Taps FPGAs on HP Moonshot Platform

In this slidecast, David Eaton and Mark Tellez from SRC Computer describe the company’s new Saturn 1 server, a dynamically reconfigurable modular system for hyperscale data centers and Web operations.

Slidecast: John Gustafson Explains Energy Efficient Unum Computing

“Written by one of the foremost experts in high-performance computing and the inventor of Gustafson’s Law, The End of Error: Unum Computing explains a new approach to computer arithmetic: the universal number (unum). The unum encompasses all IEEE floating-point formats as well as fixed-point and exact integer arithmetic. This new number type obtains more accurate answers than floating-point arithmetic yet uses fewer bits in many cases, saving memory, bandwidth, energy, and power.”

Podcast: Using Allinea Programming Tools to Speed XSEDE Supercomputing Research

“In my humble opinion, I think that debuggers and profiling tools are far too infrequently used. And it’s not because they’re not there. It’s because people just either don’t know about them, don’t do training on them, or don’t know how to use them. We’re in a state where we have less cycles than we’ve ever had per request, right? So being able to take full advantage of those cycles by having optimized code and optimized run patterns is crucial. Otherwise, you’re just not going to be able to get your work done and the science won’t get done.”

Slidecast: Introducing Nimbix – Supercomputing Made Superhuman

Nimbix is a pure high performance computing (HPC) cloud built for volume, speed and simplicity. “We give people the tools and the processing power to solve their biggest, toughest problems. We give you the freedom to imagine new possibilities, to test the limits of reality, and to model the future. We keep you one step ahead of the compounding problems of processing speed and infrastructure costs. And best of all, we do it faster, better, and more economically. We give you instant access and simple interfaces. We give you options and control. It’s supercomputing made super human.”
