  • 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…

  • High Performance Systems: An “Open Plan” for HPC

    Gray Area Between Computing Paradigms One of the things that I spend a lot of time thinking about is the gray area between computing paradigms — especially with the rise of what I like to call “generally specialized computing”. Whether you spend your time on campus networks, in the cloud, mining cryptocurrencies, enabling smart cities,…

  • Understanding Why AI and Analytics Have to Run on HPC Clusters

    Data science is now a first-class citizen in the HPC data center, in the cloud, and on the workstation. The converse is also true, High Performance Computing (HPC) is now a high priority for data scientists who confront issues of time-to-model when training, inference latency, and of course, the ever-present need to manipulate large amounts…

  • Hybrid Cloud: Weighing up What to Run in the Cloud and On-Premise

    Within large, enterprise IT environments, senior management are increasingly pushing their IT department to pinpoint applications and services that could be pushed off into the cloud for performance, cost and resiliency reasons. But how do you go about deciding what should run where, and which workloads might be better off running where they are now?…
