Bank of Italy Converges HPC and Enterprise Office with New Cluster

October 10, 2016

The democratization of high performance computing (HPC) and the converged datacenter have been topics of late in the IT community. This is where HPC, high performance data analytics (big data/Hadoop workloads), and enterprise office applications all run on a common clustered compute architecture with a single file system and network.

Nielsen and Intel Migrate HPC Efficiency and Data Analytics to Big Data

May 16, 2016

Nielsen has collaborated with Intel to migrate important pieces of HPC technology into Nielsen’s big-data analytic workflows including MPI, mature numerical libraries from NAG (the Numerical Algorithms Group), as well as custom C++ analytic codes. This complementary hybrid approach integrates the benefits of Hadoop data management and workflow scheduling with an extensive pool of HPC tools and C/C++ capabilities for analytic applications. In particular, the use of MPI reduces latency, permits reuse of the Hadoop servers, and co-locates the MPI applications close to the data. 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.
