Intel’s Big Data to HPC Interconnect

May 2, 2013

It's been a notable week for Intel, with the announcement of two new leadership positions, including the pushing of 30-year veteran engineer, Brian Krzanich into the top slot. With this in mind, we revisit this week's discussion led by Intel's John Hengeveld on where the trends of big data and HPC tend to converge on the interconnect and its role in... Read more…

Mellanox Roars Through Second Quarter As InfiniBand Revenue Takes Off

July 24, 2012

With the rollout of high performance, lossless Ethernet products over the last few years, there were more than a few analysts predicting the slow retreat of InfiniBand. But thanks to a peculiar confluence of technology roadmaps, a payoff in some investments made by Mellanox, and a pent-up demand for server and storage deployment now being alleviated by Intel's Romley platform, InfiniBand is having a big year.

Intel Snaps Up InfiniBand Technology, Product Line from QLogic

January 23, 2012

Chip giant Intel has penned an agreement to acquire QLogic's assets related to its InfiniBand product line. The move is in line with Intel's strategy to have a broader, more diverse set of offerings for the datacenter, especially in the lucrative network and interconnect segment. The chipmaker also sees the acquisition as key to fulfilling its promise to deliver exascale technology by 2018. Read more…

Vendor Showdown Puts HPC Clouds in Spotlight

October 3, 2011

Vendors in the high performance cloud space were put in the hot seat during last week's ISC Cloud event in Mannheim, Germany. Representatives from twelve companies, including HP, Intel, SGI, Bull and others, took part in a "gameshow" event that featured tough questions and a competitive reason to answer them thoroughly.

QLogic Makes Case for Leaner, HPC-Centric InfiniBand

July 26, 2011

It was a bit of a surprise when QLogic beat out Mellanox as the interconnect vendor on the NNSA's Tri-Lab Linux Capacity Cluster 2 contract. Not only was Mellanox the incumbent on the original Tri-Lab contract, but it is widely considered to have the more complete solution set for InfiniBand. Nevertheless, QLogic managed to win the day, and did so with somewhat unconventional technologies. Read more…

Mellanox and QLogic Play Duopoly

December 1, 2010

With the Voltaire acquisition in the works, Mellanox is set to deliver a serious blow to its only other InfiniBand competitor. Read more…

Fighting Words from the Interconnect World

November 19, 2010

To say the market share for HPC interconnects is imbalanced is a rather dramatic understatement since the vast majority of business is driven by Mellanox. However, there are a few emerging competitors who might be playing a more prominent role in HPC--and by proxy, cloud computing. Read more…

Powering Up Automotive Simulation: Why Migrating to the Cloud is a Game Changer

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.

How to Save 80% with TotalCAE Managed On-prem Clusters and Cloud

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.
