Successfully Deploy Composable Infrastructure on the Edge to Improve HPC and AI Outside of Traditional Data Centers

Emerging CDI technologies allow you to achieve the cost and availability benefits of cloud computing using on-premises networking equipment. You also benefit from extreme flexibility, being able to dynamically recompose systems and support nearly any workload. Thanks to innovative engineering, these benefits are now available on the edge. ​

Immersion Cooling for Transportable HPC

In this sponsored post from our friends over at One Stop Systems, Product Marketing Manager, Braden Cooper discusses how the latest high-performance computing systems for AI applications generate more heat than ever before. Datacenters have begun adoption of immersion cooling solutions that immerse the temperature-sensitive electronics in a non-conductive fluid which efficiently dissipates the heat.

Factors to Understand to Maximize Cloud HPC Investments for Your Organization

HPC workloads place considerable demands on compute hardware and IT infrastructures, which is why most organizations have traditionally kept HPC applications on-premises in their local data centers. Several cloud providers now offer specific HPC services and capabilities, but you’ll need to understand and address several factors before running HPC applications in the public cloud instead of locally in your own data center.

Advancing HPC through oneAPI Heterogeneous Programming in Academia & Research

oneAPI offers an open industry effort supported by over 100 organizations. oneAPI is an open, unified, cross-architecture programming model for CPUs and accelerator architectures (GPUs, FPGAs, and others). Based on standards, the programming model simplifies software development and delivers uncompromised performance for accelerated compute without proprietary lock-in, while enabling the integration of existing code.

Supercharging Modern Data Centers with NVIDIA Networking Solutions

In this webinar sponsored by PNY Technologies, you will learn the benefits, functionalities, and key features of Accelerated Ethernet technology by NVIDIA Spectrum and how it delivers end-to-end innovations and synergies to optimize modern applications from core to cloud to edge.

How Well-Designed Infrastructure Can Overcome Challenges to Big Data Analytics Workloads

In this sponsored post, our friends over at Silicon Mechanics discuss how using big data analytics and predictive analytics through deep learning (DL) are essential strategies to make smarter, more informed decisions and provide competitive advantages for your organization. But these tactics are not simple to execute, and they require a properly designed hardware infrastructure.

How the HPC-AI Rocky Linux Server Operating System Rose from the CentOS Ashes

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  CentOS disappeared in the dead of winter. On December 8, 2020, the day with the earliest sunset of the year in northern latitudes, Red Hat announced it would no longer support the Linux server operating system, and for many CentOS users “what instruments we have agree the day of (its) death was a dark cold day.” If you were an advocate of CentOS Linux, you knew all about it. You knew its traits, its ways, its bugs, its quirks. You knew its personality. You knew how to tease the best out of it, and how to avoid….

How Aerospace/Defense Can Harness Data with a Well-Designed AI Infrastructure

In this sponsored post, our friends over at Silicon Mechanics discuss how solving mission-critical problems using AI in the aerospace and defense industry is becoming more of a reality. Every day, new technologies emerge that can simplify deployment, management, and scaling of AI infrastructure to ensure long-term ROI. There are several questions to ask yourself to ensure deploying AI workloads, and harnessing the full potential of data, in aerospace/defense is much more plausible and efficient.

The Three Variations of Supercomputing Cloud Technologies

“Cloud computing” is one of the most overloaded terms in the history of information technology.  Yes, there is the NIST Definition of Cloud Computing that many will point to, but the sheer number of adaptations of models for “enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand” access to computing resources knows no limit. In this sponsored post, our friends at Atos provide three major and very different types of issues and found that a common technology thread worked across the board.  In fact, they also learned that while the models are different, organizations often benefit from more than one.

Lenovo HPC Powers SPEChpc™ 2021 with AMD 3rd Generation EPYC™ Processors

As a leader in high performance computing, Lenovo continually supports the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) benchmarks, that would help customers make better-informed decisions for their HPC workloads. SPEChpc™ 2021 is a newly released benchmark suite from SPEC that produces industry-standard benchmarks for the newest generation of computer systems. What separates SPEChpc™ 2021 from SPEC CPU® 2017, SPEC MPI® 2007 or the other SPEC benchmark suites is that SPEChpc™ 2021 is one-of-a-kind benchmark suite which uses real-world applications that support “multiple programming models and offloading” to evaluate the performance of state-of-the-art heterogenetic HPC systems.
