What’s After Exascale? The Internet of Workflows Says HPE’s Nicolas Dubé

July 29, 2021

With the race to exascale computing in its final leg, it’s natural to wonder what the Post Exascale Era will look like. Nicolas Dubé, VP and chief technologist for HPE’s HPC business unit, agrees and shared his vision at Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2021 held last week. The next big thing, he told the virtual audience at SFE21, is something that will connect HPC and (broadly) all of IT – into what Dubé calls The Internet of Workflows. Read more…

Direct Liquid Cooling: CAPEX and OPEX, the Complete ROI Story

Health data capture, precise data analysis and machine assisted diagnosis are a big focus of the precision medical field. It is critical that medical organizations and researchers have a method for efficiency, simplification, and scalability to run precision medicine workloads. An optimized infrastructure is required to meet the needs of GPU systems capable of running precision medicine applications and workloads. Read this paper now to learn the benefits for:

This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) developed the QCT POD for Medical (QPM) platform specifically designed to meet the needs for life science customers. QCT provides an on-premises rack-level system for the healthcare industry. To reach greater flexibility and scaling, QPM offers common building blocks to meet different medical demands, like Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), Molecular Dynamics (MD), and Image Recognition. In addition, QCT optimized the QPM solution to automate launching the NVIDIA Clara application framework for AI-powered imaging and genomics.

Why Storage Infrastructure Choices Matter for Data-Intensive Organizations

Oracle’s next generation HPC architecture with Intel compute instance based on 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, code named "Ice Lake", changes the game for HPC in the Cloud. The new HPC Bare Metal instance delivers performance gains of up to 42% compared to the previous generation HPC instance. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with Intel’s 3rd generation processors also offers the flexibility to choose the right combination of cores and memory to suit workloads. The price per core-hour stays the same as the previous HPC instance, across all Oracle Cloud regions. This combination of improved performance and flat pricing translates to faster simulations and big cost savings.

Join Oracle and Intel and learn how customers are increasing performance for HPC workloads across batch processing, video encoding, electronic design automation (EDA), distributed analytics, data science, AI, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
