Before Long, Datacenter Will Be Nvidia’s Biggest Business

It is hard to remember sometimes way back when, in 2008, when Nvidia first took a stab at GPU compute in the datacenter with the original Tesla GPU accelerators and a very rudimentary CUDA programming environment for offloading parallel algorithms from CPUs to GPUs.

Google And Dell Pave The Way For File Data In The Cloud

A year ago, Dell Technologies made a significant push deeper into the fast-growing hybrid cloud space, unveiling its Dell Technologies Cloud initiative that includes hybrid cloud platforms that take advantage of the tight integration of technologies from Dell and VMware, which is majority owned by the larger company.

With Fugaku Supercomputer Installed, RIKEN Takes On Coronavirus

Supercomputers are designed for a number of big jobs that can only be done by massively powerful machinery, and one of those jobs has been the modeling of chemical compounds and biological systems, often in concert to model diseases and to help find cures for them.

Inside Facebook’s Future Rack And Microserver Iron

The hyperscalers and cloud builders have been setting the pace for innovation in the server arena for the past decade or so, particularly and publicly since Facebook set up the Open Compute Project in April 2011 and ramping up as Microsoft joined up in early 2014 and basically created a whole new server innovation stream that was unique from – and largely incompatible with – the designs put out by Facebook.

Ampere DGX Servers Pack A Wallop, Including AMD Epyc CPUs

A new CPU or GPU compute engine is always an exciting time for the datacenter because we get to see the results of years of work and clever thinking by hardware and software engineers who are trying to break through barriers with both their Dennard scaling and their Moore’s Law arms tied behind their backs.

Hot On The Heels Of Mellanox, Nvidia Snaps Up Cumulus Networks

Last week, when we talked to Nvidia co-founder and chief executive officer, Jensen Huang, about how the datacenter was becoming the unit of compute and in such a world networking was critical, it was obvious that acquiring Mellanox Technologies for $6.9

AWS Weathers The Coronavirus Storm

With much of the world in lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic, it is not a surprise that much of the attention that is being paid to Amazon’s financial results for the first quarter of 2020 focused on its online retail operation, which is literally a lifeline to many in the United States, and the massive warehousing and shipping infrastructure behind it.

Mainstreaming Fast Flash Clusters For Fun And Profit

One of the common themes – and one could say even the main theme – of The Next Platform is that some of technologies developed by the high performance supercomputing centers (usually in conjunction with governments and academia), the hyperscalers, the big cloud builders, and a handful of big and innovative large enterprises eventually get hardened, commercialized, and pushed out into the larger mainstream of information technology.
