<img style="float: left;" src="http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Hans_Meuer.jpg" alt="" width="85" height="85" />With the upcoming release of the TOP500 next week, the latest rankings are usually a hot topic of discussion this time of year. Over the past 20 years, the list has proven to be a useful and popular compilation of supercomputers for the HPC community. In this exclusive interview, Professor Hans Meuer, considered by many to be the driving force behind the project, offers his thoughts on the TOP500; its past, present, and future. Read more…
As data processing grows more and more specialized, effective storage strategies are more important than ever. And for IT professionals reevaluating their storage needs, software-defined and object-based storage are gaining ground by automating storage management – a trend that is only set to continue.
High performance workloads, big data, and analytics are increasingly important in finding real value in today's applications and data. Before we deploy applications and mine data for mission and business insights, we need a high-performance, rapidly scalable, resilient infrastructure foundation that can accurately, securely, and quickly access data from all relevant sources. Red Hat has technology that allows high performance workloads with a scale-out foundation that integrates multiple data sources and can transition workloads across on-premise and cloud boundaries.
HPC may once have been the sole province for huge corporations and national labs, but with hardware and cloud resources becoming more affordable even small and mid-sized companies are taking advantage.
