The Evolving Memory Market

August 28, 2013

The market for computer memory is entering a period of punctuated evolution as a result of several forces, including the continued growth of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, as well as growth in the cloud data centers and communication networks that serve data to mobile users. HPC workloads also play a part in the changing memory landscape. Read more…

Volta Adds Charge to GPU Roadmap

March 21, 2013

This week at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference, the priorities for GPU computing's future, including providing snappy access to high memory bandwidth, were cited as critical to growing user ranks. The energy consumption, data volume and velocity requirements are giving way to new, more efficient and higher bandwidth approaches, including Volta, which was revealed during the keynote event.

Hybrid Memory Cube Angles for Exascale

July 10, 2012

Computer memory is currently undergoing something of an identity crisis. For the past 8 years, multicore microprocessors have been creating a performance discontinuity, the so-called memory wall. It's now fairly clear that this widening gap between compute and memory performance will not be solved with conventional DRAM products. But there is one technology under development that aims to close that gap, and its first use case will likely be in the ethereal realm of supercomputing. 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.
