The Softer Side Of Exascale

When talking about high-end HPC systems in the world, much of the attention often is paid to the massive supercomputers that are being developed by the likes of system makers Cray (now part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise and the main contractor on two exascale systems), Fujitsu, Atos, IBM, and others along with component makers Intel (which is a primary contractor on one exascale system), AMD, and Nvidia.

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.
