At GTC22, HPC and AI Get Edgy

March 30, 2022

From weather sensors and autonomous vehicles to electric grid monitoring and cloud gaming, the world’s edge computing is getting increasingly complex — but the world of HPC hasn’t necessarily caught up to these rapid innovations at the edge. At a panel at Nvidia’s virtual GTC22 (“HPC, AI, and the Edge”), five experts discussed how leading-edge HPC applications... Read more…

With a Carbon Footprint Like HPC’s, It Matters When and Where You Step

December 9, 2021

From European HPC experts pondering “can fast be green?” to new milestones on the Green500 list, sustainability certainly had a moment at the hybrid SC21 conference. And it’s no wonder: the exascale era is here, and power consumption for HPC is skyrocketing even as efficiency is driven to its extremes. At SC21, another session – “HPC’s Growing Sustainability Challenges and Emerging Approaches” – tackled the topic... Read more…

On the Eve of Exascale, Argonne Lab Turns to Altair PBS Pro After 20+Years of Rolling Their Own Workload Manager

November 10, 2021

It was with a hint of nostalgia that Argonne Lab’s Bill Allcock described the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility’s (ALCF) decision to switch to a commercially-supported workload management suite after 20+ years spent developing and using ALCF’s custom workload manager, Cobalt. Argonne National Laboratory announced today that it is deploying Altair PBS Professional across the organization’s HPC systems and clusters. “From the inception of ALCF, we wrote our own scheduler called Cobalt...

Argonne AI for Science Colloquium Marks Challenges and Progress

November 9, 2021

It’s an understatement to say the effort to adapt AI technology for use in scientific computing has gained steam. Last spring, the Department of Energy released a formal report – AI for Science – suggesting an AI program not unlike the exascale program reaching fruition now. There’s also the broader U.S. National Artificial Intelligence Initiative pushing for AI use throughout society. Last week, as part of a year-long celebration of its 75th founding anniversary, Argonne National Laboratory held... Read more…

Whitepaper

5 HPC Optimization Techniques

For many organizations, decisions about whether to run HPC workloads in the cloud or in on-premises datacenters are less all-encompassing and more about leveraging both infrastructures strategically to optimize HPC workloads across hybrid environments. From multi-clouds to on-premises, dark, edge, and point of presence (PoP) datacenters, data comes from all directions and in all forms while HPC workloads run in every dimension of modern datacenter schemes. HPC has become multi-dimensional and must be managed as such.

This white paper explores several of these new strategies and tools for optimizing HPC workloads across all dimensions to achieve breakthrough results in Microsoft Azure.
