Deploying SLURM PAM modules on SLE compute nodes

Security in High Performance Computing (HPC) environments has always been a proposal of relativity. Striking a balance between implementing an adequate level of security and not interfering with “getting the science done”. In the simplest terms the primary security realms HPC systems and clusters are exposed to are environmental and user facing. More specifically […]

Seeing Further – HPC Inspires LRZ

One of our most recent success stories combines the efforts of SUSE, Lenovo and Intel at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center (Leibniz Rechenzentrum, or LRZ). The new SuperMUC-NG installation provides LRZ with 26.7 petaflop computing capacity in a smaller data center footprint with drastically reduced energy usage and cost. What’s more interesting to me […]

Seeing Further – 5 Things to Know About SUSE HPC

High performance computing (HPC) – the use of supercomputers and parallel processing techniques for solving complex computational problems – has traditionally been limited to the world of large research institutions, academia, governments and massive enterprises. But now, advanced analytics applications using artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), deep learning and cognitive computing are increasingly being […]

Stretch Your Storage Dollar: Optimizing HPC at the Value Tier with SUSE Enterprise Storage

Storage systems come in a variety of sizes, shapes and prices, and experts understand that basic parameters such as speed and capacity are only part of the story. The HPC environment places extraordinary demands on the storage system, but economy still matters—any money you save on storage preserves budget that you can then use […]

10 Top Tech Trends: Why Open Source is Center Stage – Part 1

The image of open source software has changed. No longer seen as the geeky, slightly awkward alternative to mainstream software, it’s now trendy, fashionable and super-cool. Well, OK, it still has the geeky edge and it’s still all about innovation. However, it has grown and matured to the point where everyone from small […]

More Powerful AI and Machine Learning Requires More Powerful Infrastructure with SUSE Linux Enterprise High Performance Computing

As I’ve been discussing in recent posts, artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the world as we speak, in part because of its ability to humanize technology. Another reason AI is having such an impact is that it’s becoming more natural and powerful. Interacting with AI has become so natural to us that we […]

Artificial Intelligence: Bringing Humans and Technology Together

As discussed in my recent blog post, artificial intelligence (AI) is being deployed more often—and by a wider variety of organizations—every day. One reason for this is AI’s ability to humanize technology. I realized how important this could be when watching a friend’s daughter interact with Alexa, Amazon’s voice-controlled assistant. […]
