Adaptive Computing Announces Moabcon 2014 Conference

March 19, 2014

PROVO, Utah, March 19 — Adaptive Computing, the company that powers many of the world’s largest private/hybrid cloud and technical computing environments with its Moab optimization and scheduling software, announced today that its annual user conference, Moabcon 2014, will be held March 31 to April 3, 2014, at the Hyatt Escala in Park City, Utah. The theme of the conference is “Accelerate Insights,” and will teach Moab users how to streamline the analysis process, reducing the time to discovery.

Moabcon 2014 brings together Adaptive Computing customers, partners and industry experts for four days of talks, technical sessions and networking events. The conference features keynotes and sessions from Adaptive Computing’s management team as well as presentations from heavyweights within the industry, including:

Speakers

  • Partners – HP, Cray and others
  • DigitalGlobe – Jason Bucholtz
  • The Dow Chemical Company – Dave Powers
  • National Institute for Computational Sciences, University of Tennessee – Troy Baer
  • Sandia National Laboratories – Sue Kelly
  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory – Michael Jennings and Jay Botts

Adaptive Computing will also introduce new product enhancements, including its recently unveiled Big Workflow solution that processes intensive simulations and data analysis faster, more accurately and cost effectively by:

  • Unifying data center resources – Utilizes all available resources across multiple platforms, environments and locations and manages them all as a single ecosystem that adapts as workload demand changes.
  • Optimizing the analysis process – Streamlines the analytical process, increasing throughput and productivity and reducing cost, complexity and errors.
  • Guaranteeing services – Allows the data center to ensure SLAs, maximize uptime and prove services were delivered and resources were allocated fairly.

“We are excited to gather with the industry’s foremost experts to explore the evolution of big data analytics, coupled with the collision of cloud and HPC, at this year’s Moabcon,” said Rob Clyde, CEO at Adaptive Computing. “Moabcon has always been a wonderful place to unplug and get creative, and Park City provides a fantastic setting for thinking outside the box and solving the world’s complex problems.”

During the conference, Adaptive Computing will honor its customers with the second annual Adaptie Awards. Awards are given to organizations and individuals that continually push the technological envelope using Adaptive Computing’s software. Awards will be given to customers for Best Use of Moab in an HPC Environment, Best Use of Moab in a Big Workflow Environment and Lifetime Achievement.

February 13, 2017

Lost in the frenzy of SC16 was a substantial rise in the number of vendors showing server oriented liquid cooling technologies. Three decades ago liquid cooling was pretty much the exclusive realm of the Cray-2 and IBM mainframe class products. That’s changing. We are now seeing an emergence of x86 class server products with exotic plumbing technology ranging from Direct-to-Chip to servers and storage completely immersed in a dielectric fluid. Read more…

BioTeam’s Berman Charts 2017 HPC Trends in Life Sciences

January 4, 2017

Twenty years ago high performance computing was nearly absent from life sciences. Today it’s used throughout life sciences and biomedical research. Genomics and the data deluge from modern lab instruments are the main drivers, but so is the longer-term desire to perform predictive simulation in support of Precision Medicine (PM). There’s even a specialized life sciences supercomputer, ‘Anton’ from D.E. Shaw Research, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is standing up its second Anton 2 and actively soliciting project proposals. There’s a lot going on. Read more…
