How R-Systems Powers Cloud HPC with Dell EMC

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Michael Senizaiz and Brian Kucic from R-Systems describe how the company delivers HPC in the Cloud as part of Dell EMC customer solutions. “Dell provides technical expertise and optimized cloud computing resources to the commercial and academic research communities. Using our flexible service offerings and simplified business model, you can access on-demand HPC capability— when you need it, as you need it. This allows you to minimize time, maximize effectiveness and add value to your HPC results.”

Intel Omni-Path Architecture: A Focus on Application Performance

The Intel Omni-Path Architecture is the next-generation fabric for high-performance computing. In this feature, we will explore what makes a great HPC fabric and the workings behind Intel Omni-Path Architecture. “What makes a great HPC fabric? Focusing on improving and enhancing application performance with fast throughput and low latency.”

HPC as a Service for High Performance Video Rendering

In the past 5 years, GPUs have gotten even more powerful so rendering tasks can be completed even faster than before. Katie (Garrison) Rivera, of One Stop Systems, explains how HPC can act as a service for high performance video rendering.

Increase in Wattage Trends Make Versatile Liquid Cooling the New Norm

Wattages are rising so high that to cool the nodes containing the highest performance chips used in HPC leaves one with little choice other than liquid cooling to maintain reasonable rack densities. Asetek explores how an increase in wattage trends is pushing the HPC industry toward more versatile liquid cooling options.

Reliability, Scalability and Performance – the Impact of Intel HPC Orchestrator

When it comes to getting the performance out of your HPC system, it’s the small things that count. David Lombard, Sr. Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation, explains. ” Intel HPC Orchestrator encapsulates the important tradeoffs, and pays attention to the small details that can greatly impact how well the underlying features of the hardware are leveraged to deliver better performance and scalability.”

A Seat at the Table – The Value of Women in High-Performance Computing

It’s fair to say that women continue to be underrepresented in STEM, but the question is whether there is a systemic bias making it difficult for women to join and succeed in tech industries, or has the tech industry failed to motivate and persuade women to join? Intel’s Figen Ulgen shares her view.

Why IMC is Right for Today’s Fast-Data and Big-Data Applications

Many more companies are turning to in-memory computing (IMC) as they struggle to analyze and process increasingly large amounts of data. That said, it’s often hard to make sense of the growing world of IMC products and solutions. A recent white paper from GridGain aims to help businesses decide which solution best matches their specific needs.

Genome Analytics Driving a Healthcare Revolution

Next-generation sequencing methods are empowering doctors and researchers to improve their ability to treat diseases, predict and prevent diseases before they occur, and personalize treatments to specific patient profiles. “With this increase in knowledge comes a tidal wave of data. Genomic data is growing so quickly that scientists are predicting that this data will soon take the lead as the largest data category in the world, eventually creating more digital information than astronomy, particle physics and even popular Internet sites like YouTube.”

Agenda Posted for HP-CAST at ISC 2017

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has posted their Preliminary Agenda for HP-CAST. As HPE’s user group meeting for high performance computing, the event takes place June 16-17 in Frankfurt, just prior to ISC 2017. “The High Performance Consortium for Advanced Scientific and Technical (HP-CAST) computing users group works to increase the capabilities of Hewlett Packard Enterprise solutions for large-scale, scientific and technical computing. HP-CAST provides guidance to Hewlett Packard Enterprise on the essential development and support issues for such systems. HP-CAST meetings typically include corporate briefings and presentations by HPE executives and technical staff (under NDA), and discussions of customer issues related to high-performance technical computing.”

Your Workload Manager is Your Latest X Factor

Enterprise customers consistently demand improved performance from every component in their HPC infrastructure, including their workload manager. Ian Lumb, Solutions Architect at Univa Corp., speaks on the importance of an innovative workload manager to overall success.
