Join the Research Computing Technology Day all about Deep Learning and HPC

By Grant Gustafson | August 07, 2017

You've probably noticed an uptick in talk about machine learning and deep learning in your circle of HPC friends and colleagues. People are finding new ways to apply deep learning to all sorts of business problems and using HPC clusters to provide the compute power. But things are changing so rapidly that it's hard to keep up with all the new libraries, frameworks, architectures, and tools you can choose from.

Intersect360 Speaks about the State of the Market for HPC at ISC2017

By Bright Staff | June 21, 2017

Yesterday, I sat in on an interesting session about the HPC market by Intersect360. The talk was led by Addison Snell and Christopher Willard and started with an informal discussion about what the audience would like to see in Addison’s Analyst Cross Fire panel taking place Wednesday, June 21 at 2:45 in the Panorama Room.  People want to know how HPC can support real-time data analytics for vertical applications at the Edge, Deep Learning and AI, and what the future looks like for these markets.

Why Should Your Company Deploy A Private Cloud?

By Lionel Gibbons | June 06, 2017

These days business owners and managers are quite familiar with “the cloud.” But many don't realize that the cloud actually comes in two distinct flavors.

What most people have in mind when they speak of the cloud is offerings like Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure, which are set up to host the data and applications of any customer who desires to use that platform. Because they are available to be shared among all comers, and are accessible through the public internet, such services are called the “public cloud.”

OpenStack + AWS, HPC(aaS) and GPUs: A Pragmatic Guide

By Lionel Gibbons | June 01, 2017

Remember the feeling you had when you first learned to drive a car? Everything was new to you. Sure, you knew what a steering wheel was, and what each pedal was for, but you had to learn how much steering input you could safely use at different speeds. Discovering just how much clutch and throttle was needed to get rolling without stalling doesn’t come easily to most people. And I’ll bet figuring out how hard (and how soon) to press the brake pedal as you came up behind another car at a stoplight created a few anxious moments for you and your instructor. But what does this have to do with managing clusters? In many ways, learning how to drive a cluster is much like learning to drive a car. At first, it can seem overwhelming, but once you master the individual skills, you can use them together to create a genuinely exciting experience.
