Hybrid Cloud with Bright Cluster Manager

This whitepaper from our friends over at Bright Computing discusses how hybrid cloud infrastructures allow organizations to strategically manage their compute requirements from core data center to public cloud and edge, but they are very complex to build and manage. Automation is  essential, and verifying your staff’s abilities to work with your tool of choice is mandatory.

How Shearwater Technology quadrupled its capabilities with PSSC Labs

In this case study whitepaper, PSSC Labs, provider of custom, on-premise high performance computing HPC systems designed to meet clients’ unique enterprise computing challenges, shows how an on-premise HPC cluster can take your business to the next level.

The Graphcore Second Generation IPU

Our friends over at Graphcore, the U.K.-based startup that launched the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU) for AI acceleration in 2018, has released a new whitepaper introducing the IPU-Machine. This second-generation platform has greater processing power, more memory and built-in scalability for handling extremely large parallel processing workloads. This paper will explores the new platform and assess its strengths and weaknesses compared to the growing cadre of potential competitors.

Things to Know When Assessing, Piloting, and Deploying GPUs

In this insideHPC Guide, our friends over at WEKA suggest that when organizations decide to move existing applications or new applications to a GPU-influenced system there are many items to consider, such as assessing the new  environment’s required components, implementing a pilot program to learn about the system’s future  performance, and considering eventual scaling to production levels.

Modern HPC and Big Data Design Strategies for Data Centers

This insideHPC Special Research Report provides an overview of what to consider when selecting an infrastructure capable of meeting the new workload processing needs. Tyan has a wide range of bare bones server and storage hardware solutions  available for organizations and enterprise customers.

Unleash the Future of Innovation with HPC & AI

This whitepaper reviews how cutting-edge solutions from Supermicro and NVIDIA are enabling customers to transform and capitalize on HPC and AI innovation. Data is the driving force for success in the global marketplace. Data volumes are erupting in size and complexity as organizations work to collect, analyze, and derive intelligence from a growing number of sources and devices. These workloads are critical to powering applications that translate insight into business value.

Deep Learning GPU Cluster

In this whitepaper, our friends over at Lambda walk you through the Lambda Echelon multi-node cluster reference design: a node design, a rack design, and an entire cluster level architecture. This document is for technical decision-makers and engineers. You’ll learn about the Echelon’s compute, storage, networking,  power distribution, and thermal design. This is not a cluster administration handbook, this is a high level technical overview of one possible system architecture.

Simplifying Persistent Container Storage for the Open Hybrid Cloud

This ESG Technical Validation documents remote testing of Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage with a focus on the ease of use and breadth of data services. Containers have become an important part of data center modernization. They simplify building, packaging, and deploying applications, and are hardware agnostic and designed for agility—they can run on physical, virtual, or cloud infrastructure and can be moved around as needed.
