A year ago the Lustre community was stunned by Oracle's message at the 2010 Lustre User Group (LUG). Lustre was no longer a vendor neutral platform; you had to buy Sun/Oracle storage hardware to get future versions of the software. The community uproar was strong to the threat HPC's most popular file system going away. Read more…

Some of the most prominent organizations in the HPC community have joined together to bootstrap a non-profit corporation devoted to scalable file system technologies. On Tuesday, Cray, Data Direct Networks, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory announced the incorporation of Open Scalable File Systems, Inc. The newly-hatched group has cast itself as the focal point for development of Lustre and other open source file system technologies aimed at high performance computing. Read more…
Data growth is relentless and inevitable, as data has come to define many aspects of research computing. Simulation data, ever more sophisticated sensor data, and now the rise of machine learning all contribute to the accelerating pace of data growth.
Learn how archive is different than backup, how much data should be archived, and how to architect a comprehensive HSM solution using new data management technologies that can handle this accelerating growth today and well into the future.
A workload-driven system capable of running HPC/AI workloads is more important than ever. Organizations face many challenges when building a system capable of running HPC and AI workloads. There are also many complexities in system design and integration. Building a workload driven solution requires expertise and domain knowledge that organizational staff may not possess.
This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a long-time Intel® partner, developed the Taiwania 2 and Taiwania 3 supercomputers to meet the research needs of the Taiwan’s academic, industrial, and enterprise users. The Taiwan National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) selected QCT for their expertise in building HPC/AI supercomputers and providing worldwide end-to-end support for solutions from system design, through integration, benchmarking and installation for end users and system integrators to ensure customer success.
