There is always something exciting happening in the world of HPC as emerging technologies make their appearance and innovators like Dell EMC lead the way. Our latest issue of HPC Source highlights these technological advances and focuses on how new developments bring new opportunities. With a theme of “New Technologies,” this special edition of HPC Source is devoted exclusively to coverage of high-performance computing and has been created exclusively for the HPC community.
Any technology, though, is the result of dedication and time spent on finding solutions and real-world answers. One place where this is happening is the HPC Innovation Lab, where the evaluation of new technologies and their performance is serious business. Onur Celebioglu, Engineering Director for the Dell EMC High Performance Computing solutions engineering team, tells us about the coolest new technologies (page 4).
In “Scale in a Cloudy World,” we hear from Ben Cotton of Cycle Computing, who discusses the importance of scale in the success—or failure—of any cloud-based big compute or storage project. He talks about the concerns of users who work on “really big jobs” as well as “a lot of small jobs.” Ultimately, the success of any job will depend on making the right decisions to achieve the desired scale.
HPC Source spoke to R Systems’ Chief Technology Officer, Michael Senizaiz, about important advancements and how companies can stay competitive. What excites him about the HPC market? Lots of product maturity in the middle market, cloud adoption and the success of new projects that ultimately allow for industry innovations. You’ll want to read his insights on page 8.
The pace of innovation in machine learning is “remarkable,” according to Rob Farber In “Machine Learning Technologies for the Modern Data Center” (page 22). New technologies play a very significant role. One can say the same for Artificial Intelligence (AI) advancements, which are pushing the boundaries in science every day. Our discussion with Will Ramey, Senior Product Manager for Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA (page 18) sheds light on how it is possible to create and train a data structure. Please enjoy this issue of HPC Source and all the new advances in HPC!
