A single issue has always defined the history of HPC systems: performance. While offloading and co-design may seem like new approaches to computing, they actually have been used, to a lesser degree, in the past as a way to enhance performance. Current co-design methods are now going deeper into cluster components than was previously possible. These new capabilities extend from the local cluster nodes into the “computing network.”

A successful HPC cluster is a powerful asset for an organization. The following essential strategies are guidelines for the effective operation of an HPC cluster resource: 1. Plan To Manage the Cost of Software Complexity 2. Plan for Scalable Growth 3. Plan to Manage Heterogeneous Hardware/Software Solutions 4. Be Ready for the Cloud 5. Have an answer for the Hadoop Question Bright Cluster Manager addresses the above strategies remarkably well and allows HPC and Hadoop clusters to be easily created, monitored, and maintained using a single comprehensive user interface. Administrators can focus on more sophisticated, value-adding tasks rather than developing homegrown solutions that may cause problems as clusters grow and change. The end result is an efficient and successful HPC cluster that maximizes user productivity.

6 criteria for evaluating a high-performance cloud services providers Engineering, scientific, analytics, big data and research workloads place extraordinary demands on technical and high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure. Supporting these workloads can be especially challenging for organizations that have unpredictable spikes in resource demand, or need access to additional compute or storage resources for a project or to support a growing business. Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) enables organizations to deliver HPC services in the most efficient way possible, optimizing resource utilization to accelerate time to results and reduce costs. SDI is the foundation for a fully integrated environment, optimizing compute, storage and networking infrastructure to quickly adapt to changing business requirements, and dynamically managing workloads and data, transforming a s

The SGI UV system is uniquely suited for bioinformatics and genomics by providing the computational capabilities and global shared memory architecture needed for even the most demanding sequencing and analytic tasks, including post sequencing and other data intensive workflows. Because of the systems outstanding speed and throughput, genomics researchers can perform very large jobs in less time, realizing a dramatically accelerated time-to-solution. And best of all, they can explore avenues of research that were computationally beyond the reach of HPC systems lacking the power and in-memory capabilities of the SGI UV.

With High Performance Computing (HPC) supercomputer systems that comprise tens, hundreds, or even thousands of computing cores, users are able to increase application performance and accelerate their workflows to realize dramatic productivity improvements. The performance potential often comes at the cost of complexity. By their very nature, supercomputers comprise a great number of components, both hardware and software, that must be installed, configured, tuned, and monitored to maintain maximum efficiency. In a recent report, IDC lists downtime and latency as two of the most important problems faced by data center managers.

In all things, but especially in high-performance computing (HPC), the details matter. In HPC, the most important detail is drive efficiency, especially when analyzing storage performance. This fundamental metric is easy to calculate and can have a huge impact on HPC storage performance. In this guide, we’ll look at why conventional HPC storage architectures do so poorly at drive-level throughput and what that means to an organization’s ability to realize the full potential of its HPC investments. We’ll also explain why ClusterStor™ from Seagate® excels in this arena.

As of June 2015, the second fastest computer in the world, as measured by the Top500 list employed NVIDIA® GPUs. Of those systems on the same list that use accelerators 60% use NVIDIA GPUs. The performance kick provided by computing accelerators has pushed High Performance Computing (HPC) to new levels. When discussing GPU accelerators, the focus is often on the price-toperformance benefits to the end user. The true cost of managing and using GPUs goes far beyond the hardware price, however. Understanding and managing these costs helps provide more efficient and productive systems.

HPC and technical computing environments require the collection, storage,and transmission of large-scale datasets. To meet these demands, datacenter architects must consider how increasing storage capacity over time will affect HPC workloads, performance, and system availability. While many enterprises have looked to scale-up NAS to meet their storage needs, this approach can lead to data islands that make it difficult to share data. Distributed, scale-out storage was developed to get around the technology limitations of scale-up NAS architectures.

IT organizations are facing increasing pressure to deliver critical services to their users while their budgets are either reduced or maintained at current levels. New technologies have the potential to deliver industry-changing information to users who need data in real time, but only if the IT infrastructure is designed and implemented to do so. While computing power continues to decline in cost, the management of large data centers, together with the associated costs of running these data centers, increases. The server administration over the life of the computer asset will consume about 75 percent of the total cost.
