IBM Reveals New Diamondback Tape Library Archival Storage

October 25, 2022

IBM has introduced a new high-density archival storage system, the IBM Diamondback Tape Library. Unveiled at the 2022 Open Compute Project Global Summit, the new storage solution is physically air-gapped, meaning data is stored as an isolated backup copy with no physical network connection. IBM says Diamondback provides a significantly... Read more…

AMD Previews 400 Gig Adaptive SmartNIC SOC at Hot Chips

August 24, 2022

Fresh from finalizing its acquisitions of FPGA provider Xilinx (Feb. 2022) and DPU provider Pensando (May 2022) ), AMD previewed what it calls a 400 Gig Adaptive smartNIC SOC yesterday at Hot Chips. It is another contender in the increasingly crowded and blurry smartNIC/DPU space where distinguishing between the two isn’t always easy. The motivation for these device types... Read more…

Intel Gives a Name to Datacenter GPUs for Cloud Gaming and AI

August 24, 2022

Intel has been hyping up its media delivery and cloud gaming GPUs codenamed Arctic Sound-M, and has given a formal name: Flex Series GPUs. The Flex Series GPUs will sit in the cloud datacenters for AI inferencing and graphics – such as gaming and video – to remote devices. Intel's Vision conference in May was the coming-out party for the GPUs. Intel hasn't provided a clear shipment date for the... Read more…

Porting CUDA Applications to Run on AMD GPUs

Giving developers the ability to write code once and use it on different platforms is important. Organizations are increasingly moving to open source and open standard solutions which can aid in code portability. AMD developed a porting solution that allows developers to port proprietary NVIDIA® CUDA® code to run on AMD graphic processing units (GPUs).

This paper describes the AMD ROCm™ open software platform which provides porting tools to convert NVIDIA CUDA code to AMD native open-source Heterogeneous Computing Interface for Portability (HIP) that can run on AMD Instinct™ accelerator hardware. The AMD solution addresses performance and portability needs of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and high performance computing (HPC) for application developers. Using the AMD ROCm platform, developers can port their GPU applications to run on AMD Instinct accelerators with very minimal changes to be able to run their code in both NVIDIA and AMD environments.

QCT HPC BeeGFS Storage: A Performance Environment for I/O Intensive Workloads

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.
