Bright Computing Cluster as a Service for VMware

This whitepaper from Bright Computing discusses how through advanced automation, Bright Cluster Manager eliminates the complexity of building and managing high-performance Linux clusters, enabling greater organizational efficiency and flexibility. And now, Bright Cluster Manager also supports clusters in VMware vSphere—and goes one step further to enable high-performance clusters as a service.

A New Approach to Storage and Data Management

In this sponsored post, Olivier Multon, Storage & Data Management Product Manager, Atos, BDS – Big Data & Security, believes that
with the expansion of data-intensive applications, storage has been highlighted as a critical factor in HPC. Data Management is key to optimize your entire system’s speed and performance. High-performance storage enables organizations to take full advantage of highly parallel applications and thus harness the power of supercomputing.

Taking Virtualization to a Higher Level at the University of Pisa

In this sponsored post, our friends over at Dell Technologies highlight a compelling case study: the University of Pisa gains greater flexibility and value from its IT infrastructure with widespread virtualization of resources, including high performance computing systems.

Video: VMware Talks GPU Virtualization, Sharing for AI/ML

In this video, Mike Adams, VMware’s Senior Director CPBU, AI/ML Market Development, talks with us about a new, integrated VMware vSphere 7 feature enabling “elastic infrastructure” on-demand for AI and machine learning. VMware vSphere Bitfusion is a result of VMware’s 2019 acquisition of Bitfusion, developer of virtualized hardware accelerators, including GPUs, used to improve performance of AI/ML workloads.

Virtualization Adds Value, Benefits to HPC Environments

VMware explores the concepts of virtual throughput clusters and CPU overcommitment with VMware vSphere to create multitenant and agile virtual HPC computing environments.

Virtualizing HPC Throughput Computing Environments

This pioneering study focuses primarily on the virtual performance of throughput workloads. Download the new white paper from VMWare that explores the possibilities of virtualizing HPC throughput in computing environments. 

Virtualization, the Cloud and HPC

Hardware virtualization refers to the creation of a number of self-contained virtual servers that are resident on the physical server, or host machine. This allows multiple applications to be run on the same machine while providing security and fault isolation. Typically an administrator decides how much of each resource — CPU, memory, net- working — to allocate to the virtual machine (VM), while assigning priorities to different classes of users. The virtual infrastructure dynamically enforces these policies to ensure that each VM gets its fair share of resources.

insideHPC Guide to Virtualization, the Cloud and HPC Powering Research Agility

The combination of virtualization and cloud computing provides value to both the end users and IT providers in HPC and enterprise environments. And, once created, these private clouds can be burst to a hybrid cloud to create seamless and secure extensions of the organization’s on-premise infrastructure. Performance is the key. Read this informative guide to learn more.

Will Containerization Eat Configuration Management?

Over at QNIB, Christian Kniep writes that his latest presentation examines intersection of Docker, Containerization, and Configuration Management. “In my humble opinion, Configuration Management might become a niche. As hard as it sounds.”
