Prioritizing Data in the Age of Exascale

Apr 14, 2014 |

By now, most HPCers and the surrounding community are aware that data movement poses one of the most fundamental challenges to post-petascale computing. Around the world exascale-directed projects are attempting to maximize system speeds while minimizing energy costs. In the US, for example, exascale targets have peak performance increasing by three orders of magnitude while Read more…

When Time Is of the Egress: Optimizing Your Transfers

Jul 31, 2012 |

Traditionally running scientific workloads in AWS provides a diverse toolkit that allows researchers to easily sling data around different time zones, regions, or even globally once the data is inside of the infrastructure sandbox. However, getting data in and out of AWS has historically been more of a challenge. Cycle Computing’s Andrew Kaczorek and Dan Harris offer some helpful tips on optimizing ingress and egress transfers.
