Remote Interactive 3D Visualization and the Key to HPC Cloud Acceptance

Jan 31, 2011 |

Earl Dodd argues that for the HPC cloud to gain practical acceptance as a viable decision-support tool in a wide variety of businesses and industries, it must include Remote Interactive 3D Visualization as a fundamental component of its architecture. Without this vital functionality, the HPC cloud runs the risk of being considered a technological novelty with limited commercial success. However, there are some persistent non-technical barriers that are preventing the full emergence of a broad new user group in the high-performance computing in the cloud space.

High-End Visualization the Open Source Way

Jun 22, 2010 |

Ultimately supercomputing is a visual endeavor. Turning the so-called “data deluge” into pretty pictures and animations has always been the most straightforward way to extract insight from HPC simulations. But with the size of simulation datasets growing in tandem with the size of supercomputers, visualization has never been more challenging.
