Welcome to the High Performance Computing Community podcast series. The podcasts below will apprise you of what HP is doing to drive innovation in high performance computing in the emerging technologies area.
Guodong Zhang, SCI Product and Technology Marketing Manager, gives an update on HP’s Infiniband Technology. InfiniBand has become the de factor choice to build high performance computing clusters, and scale-out solutions that require extremely low latency and high bandwidth. Guodong also provides information on how HP’s InfiniBand offering is unique from other vendors in c-Class Blades.
HPC Unified Cluster Portfolio (UCP) - Only the Strong Survive
Alanna Dwyer, SCI Product and Technology Marketing Manager for clusters, provides insight into current economics and discusses why innovation is even more important in a recession. She also touches on where and how high performance computing is being deployed to foster innovation and how HPC clusters can help customers build out their infrastructure even in these challenging times.
Converged Fabrics: Kent Koeninger and Zarka Cvetanovic discuss HP’s work on the Catalysts for HPC Innovation Project on Converged Fabrics. Together they respond to questions defining converged fabrics, major benefits and why customers would be interested in the technology, main challenges with adopting Converged Fabrics, market segments expecting to adopt this technology, and how HP is applying the learnings from this Converged Fabrics Catalyst project.
Visualization subject experts discuss the connection between HPC and visualization, the issues associated with visualizing large data sets, and how HP is addressing these problems. Learn how HP’s high-end visualization systems integrate with HPC computing and storage systems, and software that include the Parallel Compositing Library for distributed rendering, and the Scalable Visualization Array (SVA) that ties all the pieces together.
Please join HP and members from the grid technical team as they discuss why grids are important and what the challenges of grid technology are today. Learn what HP is doing for grids and what the HPC division in particular is doing in terms of guidance on best practices. Listen as the experts describe examples of customer engagements in FSI and how HP is using those learnings to bring their expertise to you.
Hardware accelerators are a new class of technology that will allow applications to achieve dramatically higher performance. In some cases, applications may be accelerated 10%, 20%, and 30% faster. Listen as our expert discusses application acceleration in high performance computing, science and engineering. Learn about the different hardware accelerators on the market today and how HP is leveraging this new technology into our Proliant and server blade products and bringing innovation to the market.
Multi-core processing promises substantial jumps in performance, but unless applications are optimized to handle the technology, they might run even slower. Listen to this two part series as our HP expert discusses the issues associated with multi-core processing and how HP is addressing these issues with the Multi-core Optimization Program and Toolkit. The Toolkit serves as a clearing house for information and resources to help with building, testing, tuning and deploying industry-standard, multi-core applications.
HP is driving adoption for the next wave of emerging high performance technologies with the Catalyst for HPC Innovation Program. Listen as HP discusses the impetus behind the program and how this cutting edge research program is bringing innovation and collaboration to our customers via a number of emerging technologies and projects.
