Atos HPC Software Suites

This whitepaper from our friends over at Atos explains the main features  and functionalities of the Atos HPC Software Suites and shares the company’s vision for the significant evolutions coming next in the HPC software arena.

HPC Buyers Guide

This ebook from our friends over at Rescale, shows that by adopting a platform solution and retiring the fixed capacity, on-premises infrastructure model, companies can significantly reduce capital expenditures, dramatically increase productivity, and develop next-generation innovative products at a pace that surpasses their competition.

HPC Cost Modeling

This ebook from our friends over at Rescale, focuses on why the historical methodology for determining cost, price per core hour is at best incapable of providing effective cost optimization for HPC workloads. At worst, it could increase your overall cost of ownership and slow innovation and productivity. Assessing the cost of your HPC practice […]

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.

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.

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.

Massive Scalable Cloud Storage for Cloud Native Applications

In this comprehensive technology white paper, written by Evaluator Group, Inc. on behalf of Lenovo, we delve into OpenShift, a key component of Red Hat’s portfolio of products designed for cloud native applications. It is built on top of Kubernetes, along with numerous other open source components, to deliver a consistent developer and operator platform that can run across a hybrid environment and scale to meet the demands of enterprises. Ceph open source storage technology is utliized by Red Hat to provide a data plane for Red Hat’s OpenShift environment.

insideHPC Guide to HPC/AI for Energy

In this technology guide, we take a deep dive into how the team of Dell Technologies and AMD is working to  provide solutions for a wide array of needs for more strategic cultivation of oil and  gas energy reserves. We’ll start with a series of compelling use-case examples, and then introduce a number  of important pain-points solved with HPC and AI. We’ll continue with some specific solutions for the energy  industry by Dell and AMD. Then we’ll take a look at a case study examining how geophysical services and  equipment company CGG successfully deployed HPC technology for competitive advantage. Finally, we’ll  leave you with a short-list of valuable resources available from Dell to help guide you along the path with HPC and AI.
