Deploying SLURM using SLE HPC patterns

The expansion of High Performance Computing (HPC) beyond the niches of higher education and government realms to corporate and business computing use cases has been on the rise. One catalyst of this trend is increasing innovation in hardware platforms and software development. Both respectively drive down the cost of deploying supercomputing services with each iteration […]

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 no longer […]

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. Here was a girl under […]

An experiment with Gnocchi – (the database) – Part 3

In Part 2, I summarized the iterations applied to the kernel (the piece of CUDA code that executes on GPU) to remove the bottlenecks encountered during profiling, like using shared memory to avoid non-coalesced memory access. In this part, I will talk about the final version of the kernel and using the GPU in other […]

An Experiment with Gnocchi – (the Database) – Part 2

In Part 1, I introduced the problem of metrics aggregations for Ceilometer in OpenStack and how Gnocchi (a time-series database) tries to solve it in a different way. I argued about possibility of offloading work to (Nvida Quadro K620) GPU. This part summarizes the iterations applied to the kernel (piece of CUDA code, that executes […]

An Experiment with Gnocchi – (the Database) – Part 1

Background (Why): Openstack has component: Ceilometer (Telemetry). Ceilometer was huge and its main purpose was to help with the Monitoring and Metering of whole of th OpenStack. But because of the scale at which OpenStack operates, Ceilometer would often fall behind and become a major bottleneck for the same function it was designed to do. […]
