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…

A New Standard in CAE Solutions for Manufacturing

Today, manufacturers of all sizes face many challenges. Not only do they need to deliver complex products quickly, they must do so with limited resources while continuously innovating and improving product quality. With the use of computer-aided engineering (CAE), engineers can design and test ideas for new products without having to physically build many expensive prototypes. This helps lower costs, enhance productivity, improve quality, and reduce time to market.

As the scale and scope of CAE grows, manufacturers need reliable partners with deep HPC and manufacturing expertise. Together with AMD, HPE provides a comprehensive portfolio of high performance systems and software, high value services, and an outstanding ecosystem of performance optimized CAE applications to help manufacturing customers reduce costs and improve quality, productivity, and time to market.

Read this whitepaper to learn how HPE and AMD set a new standard in CAE solutions for manufacturing and can help your organization optimize performance.

Porting CUDA Applications to Run on AMD GPUs

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.
