  • The Convergence of HPC and A.I.

    The convergence of HPC & A.I. is a hot topic right now, and for good reasons. In practice, there is a symbiotic relationship between (for example) HPC simulations and machine learning. HPC simulations generate tons of data, and as luck would have it, machine learning requires tons of data to train models. If we turn…

  • Using Converged HPC Clusters to Combine HPC, AI, and HPDA Workloads

    Forward-looking organizations are expanding their definitions of high-performance computing (HPC) to include workloads such as artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance data analytics (HPDA) in addition to traditional HPC simulation and modeling workloads. The challenge is to run each of these individually important workloads efficiently in the data center, without wasting resources and incurring significant CAPEX…
