Although the final day of the conference is always a half-day, it's often a half-day not to be missed, and this year is no exception.
Computing at Scale
Friday looks beyond the today's issues with petascale data management to exa-, zeta-, and yotta-scale data with the panel discussion, Exa and Yotta Scale Data—Are We Ready? This panel is led by Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's Bill Kramer, and includes such notables as Garth Gibson. Specific topics such as reliability, lifecycle management, and simply finding data in such mammoth data stores will be discussed.
Infrastructure demands at the high end and a growing market with little experience in HPC at the low end have the potential to entice many current HPC customers to put their computations in the cloud.
My Cloud, Your Cloud, Everybody’s Cloud features panelists such as Ian Foster and Thomas Sterling considering the basic questions: what is a cloud, how would HPC work in the cloud, what are the major issues we'll face adopting cloud computing as part of our infrastructure.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
04/15/2013 | Bull | “50% of HPC users say their largest jobs scale to 120 cores or less.” How about yours? Are your codes ready to take advantage of today’s and tomorrow’s ultra-parallel HPC systems? Download this White Paper by Analysts Intersect360 Research to see what Bull and Intel’s Center for Excellence in Parallel Programming can do for your codes.
In this demonstration of SGI DMF ZeroWatt disk solution, Dr. Eng Lim Goh, SGI CTO, discusses a function of SGI DMF software to reduce costs and power consumption in an exascale (Big Data) storage datacenter.
The Cray CS300-AC cluster supercomputer offers energy efficient, air-cooled design based on modular, industry-standard platforms featuring the latest processor and network technologies and a wide range of datacenter cooling requirements.
