Ganthier, Turkel on the Dell EMC Road Ahead

Who is Dell EMC and why should you care? Glad you asked is Jim Ganthier’s quick response. Ganthier is SVP for validated solutions and high performance computing for the new (even bigger) technology giant Dell EMC following Dell’s acquisition of EMC in September. In this case, says Ganthier, the blending of the two companies is a 1+1 = 5 proposition. Not bad math if you can pull it off.

HPE-SGI to Tackle Exascale and Enterprise Targets

November 22, 2016

At first blush, and maybe second blush too, Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) purchase of SGI seems like an unambiguous win-win. SGI’s advanced shared memory technology, its popular UV product line (Hanna), deep vertical market expertise, and services-led go-to-market capability all give HPE a leg up in its drive to remake itself. Bear in mind HPE came into existence just a year ago with the split of Hewlett-Packard. The computer landscape, including HPC, is shifting with still unclear consequences. One wonders who’s next on the deal block following Dell’s recent merger with EMC. Read more…

Heading into ISC16, OpenHPC Releases Latest Stack with 60-plus Packages

June 16, 2016

SC15 was sort of a muted launch party for OpenHPC – the nascent effort to develop a ‘plug-and-play’ software framework for HPC. There seemed to be widespread agreement the idea had merit, not a lot of knowledge of details, and some wariness because Intel was a founding member and vocal advocate. Next week, ISC16 will mark the next milestone for OpenHPC, which has since grown into a full-fledged Linux Foundation Collaborative Project and today released version 1.0.1 of OpenHPC (build and test tools).
