Diversity Divides the HPC Middleware Market

Jun 5, 2014 |

There’s nothing simple about defining middleware to begin with, but that process gets far more complex when the goal is to paint a broad picture of trends around such a nebulous set of tools. Despite the enormity of the task, HPC analyst group, Intersect360 Research, tied together a wealth of findings around a comprehensive definition Read more…

LANL Demos Extreme Scale Indexing

Jun 3, 2014 |

An HPC middleware project currently underway at Los Alamos National Laboratory has reached a significant milestone. The new supercomputing tool, developed as part of the Multi-dimensional Hashed Indexed Middleware (MDHIM) project, made 1,782,105,749 key/value inserts per second into a globally-ordered key space on Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Moonlight supercomputer. The demonstration showcases the potential of MDHIM Read more…

ADIOS Team Wins Award

Sep 4, 2013 |

In this fast-moving field, certain HPC software projects manage to both stand out and stand the test of time, and that’s the case with ADIOS, an open-source middleware developed to handle big data workloads…

Middleware Is Cool

Apr 16, 2013 |

Despite the important advances that middleware enables in both the HPC and enterprise spheres, it generally fails to elicit the same excitement as, say, brand-new leadership class hardware. But middleware, such as Adaptive Computing’s intelligent management engine, Moab, is cool and you don’t have to take Adaptive’s word for it. During the company’s annual user event last week, Gartner gave Adaptive its “Cool Vendor” stamp of approval.
