Will Open Compute Backing Drive SIOV Adoption?

Virtualization has been an engine of efficiency in the IT industry over the past two decades, decoupling workloads from the underlying hardware and thus allowing multiple workloads to be consolidated into a single physical system as well as moved around relatively easily with live migration of virtual machines.

Slurm HPC Job Scheduler Applies For Work In AI And Hybrid Cloud

The Slurm Workload Manager that has its origins at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as the Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management – and which is used on about two-thirds of the most powerful HPC systems in the world – is looking for new jobs to take on across hybrid cloud infrastructure and machine learning systems running at scale.

Australia’s NCI Adds Ceph Object Storage To Lustre File Systems

Object storage has been drawing an increasing level of interest from organizations over the past several years as a convenient way to store and manage the growing quantities of data they are accumulating, especially when that may be a mix of structured and unstructured data and a lot of machine-generated telemetry.

Arm CPUs To Take A Bite Out Of The HPC Market

Arm-based servers have had a somewhat checkered history that has seen many abortive attempts to challenge the X86 processor hegemony, but the firm appears bullish about its chances in the high performance computing (HPC) sector, where it believes its licensing model and the energy efficiency of its architecture give it an edge.

Changes Go Far Beyond Just AI, Machine Learning

SambaNova Systems is a technology startup founded in 2017 by a group of far-sighted engineers and data scientists who saw that the current approaches to AI and machine learning were beginning to run out of steam, and that an entire new architecture would be necessary in order to make AI accessible for everyone as well as deliver the scale, performance, accuracy and ease of use needed for future applications.
