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 […]

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.

The Use of High-Performance Polymers in HPC and Data Center Applications

This whitepaper from CPC details the use of high-performance polymers in HPC and data center applications where plastics advance as a viable, reliable option in liquid cooling systems. CPC offers the industry’s first PPSU QD, purpose-built for liquid cooling use in HPC and data centers.

Data Center Transformation: Why a Workload-Driven and Scalable Architecture Matters

In this whitepaper QCT (Quanta Cloud Technology) highlights Data Center Transformation: Why a Workload-Driven and Scalable Architecture Matters. The company is offering its QCT Platform on Demand (QCT POD) solution that empowers enterprises to kickstart their transformation journey. It combines advanced technology with a unique user experience to help enterprises reach better performance and gain more insights. With flexibility and scalability, QCT POD enables enterprises to address a broader range of HPC, Deep Learning, and Data Analytic demands that fulfill various applications.

Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing – Choosing the Right GPU for the Job

In this new whitepaper from our friends over at Exxact Corporation we take a look at the important topic of deep learning for Natural Language Processing (NLP) and choosing the right GPU for the job. Focus is given to the latest developments in neural networks and deep learning systems, in particular a neural network architecture called transformers. Researchers have shown that transformer networks are particularly well suited for parallelization on GPU-based systems.

Metal or Plastic Quick Disconnects? Key Considerations

Long-term, leak-free performance in fluid management systems requires robust connectors. As liquid cooling is increasingly deployed in high performance computing and data center applications, these industries demand quick disconnects (QDs) purpose-built for their needs. Gone are the days of making do with metal ball-and-sleeve connectors designed for heavy industrial use. Download the new guide from CPC that outlines key performance factors of new PPSU QDs compared to traditional all-metal QDs for liquid cooling.

Five Essential Strategies for Successful HPC Clusters

Successful HPC clusters are powerful assets for an organization. However, these systems are complex and must be built and managed properly to realize their potential. If not done properly, your ability to meet implementation deadlines, quickly identify and resolve problems, perform updates and maintenance, accommodate new application requirements and adopt strategic new technologies will be jeopardized. Download the new white paper from Bright Computing that explores key strategies for HPC clusters.
