GigaOm Radar for Evaluating Data Warehouse Platforms

This new GigaOm Radar Report “GigaOm Radar for Evaluating Data Warehouse Platforms” provided by our friends over at Vertica, examines the leading platforms in the data warehouse marketplace, describes the fundamentals of the technology, identifies key criteria and evaluation metrics by which organizations can evaluate competing platforms, describes some potential technology developments to look out for in the future, and classifies platforms across those criteria and metrics.

Reinventing HPC Architectures with In-Package Optical I/O

In this sponsored post, our friends over at Ayar Labs indicate that although the industry has long recognized the potential of optical I/O as a solution for many HPC challenges, it is only in recent years that economic in-package optical solutions have become available. At last, optical I/O has emerged as the best solution to drive the next phase of Moore’s Law-like advances in post-exascale systems performance. In part this is because there have not been game-changing breakthroughs in the materials used in traditional interconnects.

New, Open DPC++ Extensions Complement SYCL and C++

In this guest article, our friends at Intel discuss how accelerated computing has diversified over the past several years given advances in CPU, GPU, FPGA, and AI technologies. This innovation drives the need for an open and cross-platform language that allows developers to realize the potential of new hardware, minimizes development cost and complexity, and maximizes reuse of their software investments.

insideHPC Special Report: Citizens Benefit from Public/Private Partnerships – Part 3

This special report sponsored by Dell Technologies, takes a look at how now more than ever, agencies from all levels of government are teaming with private Information Technology (IT) organizations to leverage AI and HPC to create and implement solutions that not only increase safety for all, but also provide a more streamlined and modern experience for citizens.

Collaboration Moves to the Cloud in a Work-from-home World

In this Sponsored Post, our friends over at Altair explain how remote access and cloud collaboration tools allow companies of all sizes to discover and innovate, anywhere and anytime, and in today’s distributed world they can make the difference between winning and falling behind.

Empowering Edge Cloud in the 5G & IoT Hyper-Connected Era

It is well documented that the amount of data that is being produced on a daily/monthly/yearly basis is growing at astronomical rates. IDC have estimated that by 2025, 175 zettabytes of data will be created each year and will continue to grow. The data will be in both structured and unstructured forms and there will be major logistical challenges in moving this data from the devices that create the data to where the data is acted upon and decisions made.
