Finding oil and gas has always been a tricky proposition, given that reserves are primarily hidden underground, and often as not, under the ocean as well. The costs involved in acquiring rights to a site, drilling the wells, and operating them are considerable and has driven the industry to adopt advanced technologies for locating the most promising sites. As a consequence, oil and gas exploration today is essentially an exercise in scientific visualization and modeling, employing some of most advanced computational technologies available. High performance computing (HPC) systems are being used to fill these needs, primarily with x86-based cluster computers and Lustre storage systems. The technology is well developed, but the scale of the problem demands medium to large-sized systems, requiring a significant capital outlay and operating expense. The most powerful systems deployed by oil and gas companies are represented by petaflop-scale computers with multiple petabytes of attached

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.”

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.

Although high-performance computing (HPC) often stands apart from a typical IT infrastructure—it uses highly specialized scale-out compute, networking and storage resources—it shares with mainstream IT the ability to push data center capacity to the breaking point. Much of this is due to data center inefficiencies caused by HPC storage growth. The Seagate® ClusterStor™ approach to scale-out HPC storage can significantly improve data center efficiency. No other vendor solution offers the same advantages.

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.

A high performance computing (HPC) cluster refers to a group of servers built from off-the-shelf components that are connected via certain interconnect technologies. A cluster can deliver aggregated computing power from its many processors with many cores — sometimes hundreds, even thousands — to meet the processing demands of more complex engineering software, and therefore deliver results faster than individual workstations. If your company is in the majority that could benefit from access to more computing power, a cluster comprised of commodity servers may be a viable solution to consider, especially now that they’re easier to purchase, deploy, configure and maintain than ever before.

Value is migrating throughout the IT industry from hardware to software and services. High Performance Computing (HPC) is no exception. IT solution providers must position themselves to maximize their delivery of business value to their clients – particularly industrial customers who often use several applications that must be integrated in a business workflow. This requires systems and hardware vendors to invest in making their infrastructure “application ready”. With its Application Ready solutions, IBM is outflanking competitors in Technical Computing and fast-tracking the delivery of client business value by providing an expertly designed, tightly integrated and performance optimized architecture for several key industrial applications. These Application Ready solutions come with a complete high-performance cluster including servers, network, storage, operating system, management software, parallel file systems and other run time libraries, all with commercial-level solution s

Dell EMC provides VMware vSAN Ready Nodes that combine a wide range of Dell hardware and VMware vSAN software into a ready-to-order package. These include the new single-socket Dell EMC PowerEdge R7415 servers powered by the AMD EPYC 7000-series processors. These Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes are validated and configured to meet hyper-converged workload needs while taking advantage of lower single-socket licensing costs from VMware. Dell commissioned Demartek to evaluate the performance of the new Dell EMC PowerEdge R7415 servers that use the AMD EPYC 7000-series of processors. Mixed enterprise workloads were run in this VMware vSAN cluster using one model of the AMD EPYC processor in each of three identical nodes. Then the tests were repeated using different models of AMD EPYC processors in the vSAN cluster nodes.
