Edge to Exascale: A Trend to Watch in 2022

January 5, 2022

Edge computing is an approach in which the data is processed and analyzed at the point of origin – the place where the data is generated. This is done to make data more accessible to end-point devices, or users, and to reduce the response time for data requests. HPC-class computing and networking technologies are critical to many edge use cases, and the intersection of HPC and ‘edge’ promises to be a hot topic in 2022. Read more…

Intel’s ‘Borealis’ Testbed Targets Exascale Readiness for Aurora Supercomputer

As Intel, HPE, and Argonne National Laboratory drive toward a 2022 delivery of the Aurora leadership-class supercomputer, HPCwire spoke with Dr. Robert Wisniewski, Intel Fellow: SuperCompute Software, Aurora technical lead and PI, to learn about Intel’s Borealis testbed for Aurora. Wisniewski also explains why he views High Bandwidth Memory as a game-changer for HPC. Read more…

With a Carbon Footprint Like HPC’s, It Matters When and Where You Step

December 9, 2021

From European HPC experts pondering “can fast be green?” to new milestones on the Green500 list, sustainability certainly had a moment at the hybrid SC21 conference. And it’s no wonder: the exascale era is here, and power consumption for HPC is skyrocketing even as efficiency is driven to its extremes. At SC21, another session – “HPC’s Growing Sustainability Challenges and Emerging Approaches” – tackled the topic... Read more…

SC21 Was Unlike Any Other — Was That a Good Thing?

December 3, 2021

For a long time, the promised in-person SC21 seemed like an impossible fever dream, the assurances of a prominent physical component persisting across years of canceled conferences, including two virtual ISCs and the virtual SC20. With the advent of the Delta variant, Covid surges in St. Louis and contention over vaccine requirements... Read more…

Whitepaper

5 HPC Optimization Techniques

For many organizations, decisions about whether to run HPC workloads in the cloud or in on-premises datacenters are less all-encompassing and more about leveraging both infrastructures strategically to optimize HPC workloads across hybrid environments. From multi-clouds to on-premises, dark, edge, and point of presence (PoP) datacenters, data comes from all directions and in all forms while HPC workloads run in every dimension of modern datacenter schemes. HPC has become multi-dimensional and must be managed as such.

This white paper explores several of these new strategies and tools for optimizing HPC workloads across all dimensions to achieve breakthrough results in Microsoft Azure.
