Enlisting Deep Learning in the War on Cancer

Sometime in Q2 2017 the first ‘results’ of the Joint Design of Advanced Computing Solutions for Cancer (JDACS4C) will become publicly available according to Rick Stevens. He leads one of three JDACS4C pilot projects pressing deep learning (DL) into service in the War on Cancer. The pilots, supported in part by DOE exascale funding, not only seek to do good by advancing cancer research and therapy but also to advance deep learning capabilities and infrastructure with an eye towards eventual use on exascale machines.

Ganthier, Turkel on the Dell EMC Road Ahead

Who is Dell EMC and why should you care? Glad you asked is Jim Ganthier’s quick response. Ganthier is SVP for validated solutions and high performance computing for the new (even bigger) technology giant Dell EMC following Dell’s acquisition of EMC in September. In this case, says Ganthier, the blending of the two companies is a 1+1 = 5 proposition. Not bad math if you can pull it off.

OpenHPC Pushes to Prove its Openness and Value at SC16

October 24, 2016

At SC15 last year the announcement of OpenHPC – the nascent effort to develop a standardized HPC stack to ease HPC deployment – drew a mix of enthusiasm and wariness; the latter in part because of Intel’s prominence in the group. There was general agreement that creating an open source, plug-and-play HPC stack was a good idea. Read more…

Container App ‘Singularity’ Eases Scientific Computing

October 20, 2016

HPC container platform Singularity is just six months out from its 1.0 release but already is making inroads across the HPC research landscape. It's in use at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), where Singularity founder Gregory Kurtzer has worked in the High Performance Computing Services (HPCS) group for 16 years. Read more…

Bank of Italy Converges HPC and Enterprise Office with New Cluster

October 10, 2016

The democratization of high performance computing (HPC) and the converged datacenter have been topics of late in the IT community. This is where HPC, high performance data analytics (big data/Hadoop workloads), and enterprise office applications all run on a common clustered compute architecture with a single file system and network.

Profile of a Data Science Pioneer

June 28, 2016

As he approaches retirement, Reagan Moore reflects on SRB, iRODS, and the ongoing challenge of helping scientists manage their data. In 1994, Reagan Moore managed the production computing systems at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), a job that entailed running and maintaining huge Cray computing systems as well as networking, archival storage, security, job scheduling, and visualization systems. At the time, research was evolving from analyses done by individuals on single computers into a collaborative activity using distributed, interconnected and heterogeneous resources. Read more…

Paul Messina Shares Deep Dive Into US Exascale Roadmap

June 14, 2016

Ahead of ISC 2016, taking place in Frankfurt, Germany, next week, HPCwire reached out to Paul Messina to get an update on the deliverables and timeline for the United States' Exascale Computing Project. The ten-year project has been charged with standing up at least two capable exascale supercomputers in 2023 as part of the larger National Strategic Computing Initiative launched by the Obama Administration in July 2015.

Lustre Takes Aim at Enterprise Security Requirements

May 23, 2016

“Security in Lustre reflects its roots as a high performance computing (HPC) file system,” said John Hammond of Intel’s High Performance Data Division. In traditional HPC deployments, Lustre resides in a physically secure and logically isolated environment, dependent on strict network access controls, managed by large and siloed teams focused on what’s happening with the systems, and accessed by users already holding appropriate clearances to log on and use the resources.
