The Hyperconvergence Of Virtual Machines And Containers

No platform can be everything to everybody. And while there are plenty of organizations that operate at scale who create their own platforms, often using best of breed components, there are some that – perhaps because of the experience of constantly cobbling together systems into platforms – just do not want to do the experimenting and testing and weaving.

Sometimes The Road To Petaflops Is Paved With Gold And Platinum

Supercomputing, with a few exceptions, is a shared resource that is allocated to users in a particular field or geography to run their simulations and models on systems that are much larger than they might otherwise be able to buy on their own.

Time For A Compute Rematch Between The FPGA And The GPU

For any given compute engine, there is the vendor who makes the chip and therefore a lot of the money and then there are the downstream system architects, system integrators, original design manufacturers, and original equipment manufacturers who add further value to that compute engine in one form or another and make their own revenue stream from that innovation.

The Fourth Wave Of FPGA Compute

Ahead of The Next FPGA Platform event that we hosted recently in San Jose, we talked to Manoj Roge, vice president of product planning and business development at Achronix, about the three waves of FPGAs that have occurred over the past three decades, and in the course of our live conversation, we got a little more insight into the addressable market for FPGAs and also talked about the fourth wave, which is just starting now.

Putting In-Memory Processing Through The Paces

From a conceptual standpoint, the idea of embedding processing within main memory makes logical sense since it would eliminate many layers of latency between compute and memory in modern systems and make the parallel processing inherent in many workloads overlay elegantly onto the distributed compute and storage components to speed up processing.

Using Bayesian Inference To Reverse Engineer Decades Of HPC

A collaboration including the University of Oxford, University of British Columbia, Intel, New York University, CERN, and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center is working to make it practical to incorporate of Bayesian inference into scientific simulators.

Making The Red Hat Platform Bet Pay Off For Big Blue

In the long run of the history of International Business Machines, a conglomerate established back in 1911 whose Electric Tabulating System was custom built by Herman Hollerith for the federal government in the United States for the 1890 census and then commercialized, the acquisition of Red Hat by Big Blue might, in hindsight many years from now, turn out to be the most significant of the many transitions that IBM has undergone.
