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.

Open CAPI: A New Standard for High Performance Attachment of Memory, Acceleration, and Networks

In this video from the Switzerland HPC Conference, Jeffrey Stuecheli from IBM presents: Open CAPI, A New Standard for High Performance Attachment of Memory, Acceleration, and Networks. “OpenCAPI sets a new standard for the industry, providing a high bandwidth, low latency open interface design specification. This session will introduce the new standard and it’s goals. This includes details on how the interface protocol provides unprecedented latency and bandwidth to attached devices.”

Next-Generation Sequencing Improving Precision Medicine

Genomic sequencing has progressed so rapidly that researchers can now analyze the genetic profiles of healthy individuals to uncover mutations that will almost certainly lead to a genetic condition. These breakthroughs are demonstrating that the future of genomic medicine will focus not just on the ability to reactively treat diseases, but on predicting and preventing them before they occur.

Radio Free HPC Looks at Quantum Startup Rigetti Computing

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the week’s top stories: Quantum Startup Rigetti Computing Raises $64 Million in Funding, Rex Computing has their low-power chip, and Intel is shipping their Optane SSDs.

Exascale Computing Project – Driving a HUGE Change in a Changing World

“In this keynote, Al Geist will discuss the need for future Department of Energy supercomputers to solve emerging data science and machine learning problems in addition to running traditional modeling and simulation applications. The ECP goals are intended to enable the delivery of capable exascale computers in 2022 and one early exascale system in 2021, which will foster a rich exascale ecosystem and work toward ensuring continued U.S. leadership in HPC. He will also share how the ECP plans to achieve these goals and the potential positive impacts for OFA.”

PBS Works User Group comes to Las Vegas May 22-25

Altair will host the PBS Works User Group May 22-25 in Las Vegas. This four-day event (including 2 days of user presentations, round table discussions and surrounded by hands-on workshops) is the global user event of the year for PBS Professional and other PBS Works products. “This year we are excited to announce that we will be hosting a tour of the Switch data center facility on Tuesday afternoon.”

Next-Generation Sequencing Altering the Patient Care Landscape

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) tools produce vast quantities of genetic data which poses a growing number of challenges to life sciences organizations. Accelerating analytics, providing adequate storage and memory capacity, speeding time-to-solution, and reducing costs are major concerns for IT department operating on traditional computing systems. In this week’s Sponsored Post, Bill Mannel, Vice President & General Manager of HPC Segment Solutions and Apollo Servers, Data Center Infrastructure Group at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, explains how next-generation sequencing is altering the patient care landscape.
