It’s time to throw both IT and the AI Data Scientist a life preserver!

By Dan Kuczkowski | March 21, 2019

Everyone in the computer business knows just how hot the machine learning (ML) space is today.  The promise, as well as the demands, being placed on the AI data scientist by their companies, are numerous.  For most of these people, their GPU laden computers used to run analysis are viewed as just a tool. Often, each data scientist is provided with their own powerful computer and they don’t want to be burdened with the need to operationalize these computers. Simply put, they just want to run their jobs as quickly as possible.

Homegrown Cluster Management…Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should Pt. 1

By Bill Wagner | March 19, 2019

The historical thinking behind building and maintaining your own HPC cluster management solution using open source tools goes something like this:  “We have smart people that can build this. We have limited capital budget. Commercial cluster management software costs money, but open source tools like xCAT, Rocks, OpenHPC and others are free. If we build a solution ourselves using open source tools, we can use the savings to buy more hardware.”

How 5G Networks will Influence the Location of Edge Compute

By Bill Wagner | February 26, 2019

While the world eagerly awaits the rollout of 5G networks and the exciting new apps for both consumers and businesses that will be made possible via 5G services, enterprises, telcos, hosting providers and others are scrambling to architect and build the computing infrastructure necessary to support the new requirements of these apps. Two key challenges in defining the computing infrastructure for 5G apps are that they will be data/compute intensive and have little tolerance for network latency. The former means that significant computing capacity is needed to deliver the intended experience of the app and the latter means that the compute must be located in relative proximity to the user of the app. The result: A significant build-out of localized compute (predominately Linux servers and clusters) will be required to service the new generation of 5G apps speeding towards us. But where (specifically) will that compute infrastructure reside?
