OpenSFS has chosen its Community Representative Director for 2013: Tommy Minyard, director of Advanced Computing Systems (ACS) at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). We got the new director's views on Lustre's opportunities in big data and exascale, maintaining a single source tree, and new features on the horizon. Read more…

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…
The increasing complexity of electric vehicles result in large and complex computational models for simulations that demand enormous compute resources. On-premises high-performance computing (HPC) clusters and computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools are commonly used but some limitations occur when the models are too big or when multiple iterations need to be done in a very short term, leading to a lack of available compute resources. In this hybrid approach, cloud computing offers a flexible and cost-effective alternative, allowing engineers to utilize the latest hardware and software on-demand. Ansys Gateway powered by AWS, a cloud-based simulation software platform, drives efficiencies in automotive engineering simulations. Complete Ansys simulation and CAE/CAD developments can be managed in the cloud with access to AWS’s latest hardware instances, providing significant runtime acceleration.
Two recent studies show how Ansys Gateway powered by AWS can balance run times and costs, making it a compelling solution for automotive development.
Five Recommendations to Optimize Data Pipelines
When building AI systems at scale, managing the flow of data can make or break a business. The various stages of the AI data pipeline pose unique challenges that can disrupt or misdirect the flow of data, ultimately impacting the effectiveness of AI storage and systems.
With so many applications and diverse requirements for data types, management systems, workloads, and compliance regulations, these challenges are only amplified. Without a clear, continuous flow of data throughout the AI data lifecycle, AI models can perform poorly or even dangerously.
To ensure your AI systems are optimized, follow these five essential steps to eliminate bottlenecks and maximize efficiency.
