GigaOm Radar for Evaluating Data Warehouse Platforms

This new GigaOm Radar Report 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.

insideHPC Dell Special Report – HPC and AI for the Era of Genomics

This white paper sponsored by Dell Technologies, takes a deep dive into HPC and AI for life sciences in the era of genomics. 2020 will be remembered for the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19. While infection rates are growing exponentially, the race is on to find a treatment, vaccine, or cure. Governments and private  organizations are teaming together to understand the basic biology of the virus, its genetic code, to find  what can stop it.

insideHPC Dell Special Report – Citizens Benefit from Public/Private Partnerships

This white paper 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.

Increasing HPC Cluster Productivity Through System Resource Tracking

This white paper from Bright Computing addresses the necessary steps to give administrators, managers, and users the information they need to use HPC system resources effectively, to maximize system productivity, to  enable effective resource sharing, to identify waste and to provide charge-back capability.

The Role of Middleware in Optimizing Vector Processing

This whitepaper delves into the world of unstructured data and describes some of the technologies, especially vector processors and their optimization software, that play key roles in solving the problems that arise as result of the accelerating amount of data generated globally.

Is Your Storage Infrastructure Ready for the Coming AI Wave?

In this new whitepaper from our friends over at Panasas, we take a look at whether your storage infrastructure is ready for the robust requirements in support of AI workloads. AI promises to not only create entirely new industries, but it will also fundamentally change the way organizations large and small conduct business. IT planners need to start revising their storage infrastructure now to prepare the organization for the coming AI wave.

Magseis Fairfield Uses a Sea of Data to Support Environmentally Responsible Energy Exploration

This whitepaper contains a compelling HPC data storage solution case study highlighting the use of Panasas ActivStor by Magseis Fairfield, a geophysics firm that specializes in providing seismic 3D and 4D data acquisition services to exploration and production (E&P) companies.

Panasas ActiveStor Solution: Architectural Overview

Our friends over at Panasas have released this timely new white paper “Panasas ActiveStor Solution: Architectural Overview.” The Panasas ActiveStor architecture running the PanFS storage operating system breaks through the performance constraints of other parallel file systems.

The GigaIO™ FabreX™ Network – New Frontiers in Networking For Big Data

In order to derive meaning from big data, via implementing the capabilities of big data analytics, and create new opportunities and new value, organizations must find a way to obtain radically increased overall system throughput. This whitepaper describes how the GigaIO FabreX network makes such accelerated functionalities possible by achieving exceptionally low latency and high-bandwidth performance across an organization’s entire network.

Cloud Adoption for HPC: Trends and Opportunities

This whitepaper is an insideHPC Special Research Report sponsored by Univa® Corporation: Cloud Adoption for HPC:
Trends and Opportunities. Recently, InsideHPC ran a survey, sponsored by Univa, to identify the trends and opportunities for adoption of HPC workflows in the cloud. There were 143 respondents: 39% academic/non-profit, 17%  manufacturing or engineering, 11% government research; 59% North America, 24% Europe, 8% Asia; 59% with less than 20,000 employees. This whitepaper is a summary of what was learned from this survey.
