SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 11 — Intersect360 Research, a leading market intelligence, research, and consulting advisory practice for the High Performance Computing industry, announced today that it has hired Michael Feldman, a 35-year computer industry veteran, to augment its analyst team.
Feldman, recognized as an expert in the HPC industry worldwide, is well-known as the former managing editor of HPCwire, where he spent eight years as one of the foremost predictors of HPC trends. Feldman was also the cohost, along with Intersect360 Research CEO Addison Snell, of the insightful and popular weekly HPCwire Soundbite podcast.
“Having worked with Michael as a close partner for years, I already know what an established expert he is in HPC,” said Snell. “More importantly, he is universally esteemed by buyers and makers of HPC technology as one of the preeminent names in HPC.”
With the addition of Feldman to its analyst team, Intersect360 Research is poised to advance its profile even further as the leading source of market-driven, end-user-based research in the HPC space. In addition to his broad knowledge of the entire HPC industry, Feldman brings an in-depth knowledge of processor technologies, including the emerging field of accelerators. Feldman will contrbute to Intersect360 Research’s syndicated research reports as well as to client-specific deliverables such as white papers, webinars, and consulting engagements.
“I am excited to be joining such a talented team of individuals and am looking forward to bringing my expertise to Intersect360 Research’s business,” said Feldman. “High Performance Computing has grown into a very diverse and complex market, making the analyst's job especially challenging and more important than ever for HPC vendors and users.”
Previous to his tenure at HPCwire, Feldman spent a number of years as a programmer and analyst at Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) and later as a software engineer with Aonix Corporation. He also developed software tools for the US Department of Defense and other government agencies across a variety of hardware platforms. Feldman holds a B.S. degree in Microbiology from the University of Maryland and a B.S in Computer Science from Chapman University. He resides in Napa, California.

During a conversation this week with Cray CEO, Peter Ungaro, we learned that the company has managed to extend its reach into the enterprise HPC market quite dramatically--at least in supercomputing business terms. With steady growth into these markets, however, the focus on hardware versus the software side of certain problems for such users is....
Contributing commentator, Andrew Jones, offers a break in the news cycle with an assessment of what the national "size matters" contest means for the U.S. and other nations...
Today at the International Supercomputing Conference in Leipzing, Germany, Jack Dongarra presented on a proposed benchmark that could carry a bit more weight than its older Linpack companion. The high performance conjugate gradient (HPCG) concept takes into account new architectures for new applications, while shedding the floating point....

The world's largest supercomputers, like Tianhe-2, are great at traditional, compute-intensive HPC workloads, such as simulating atomic decay or modeling tornados. But data-intensive applications--such as mining big data sets for connections--is a different sort of workload, and runs best on a different sort of computer.

Researchers are finding innovative uses for Gordon, the 285 teraflop supercomputer housed at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) that has a unique Flash-based storage system. Since going online, researchers have put the incredibly fast I/O to use on a wide variety of workloads, ranging from chemistry to political science.

The advent of low-power mobile processors and cloud delivery models is changing the economics of computing. But just as an economy car is good at different things than a full size truck, an HPC workload still has certain computing demands that neither the fastest smartphone nor the most elastic cloud cluster can fulfill.

For all the progress we've made in IT over the last 50 years, there's one area of life that has steadfastly eluded the grasp of computers: understanding human language. Now, researchers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) are utilizing a Hadoop cluster on its Longhorn supercomputer to move the state of the art of language processing a little bit further.
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.
