Artificial Intelligence – will 2020 be the year the momentum stalls?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already impacting almost every aspect of our lives and its influence is set to grow exponentially over the next few years. According to Gartner, AI augmentation (the human-centric partnership of people and AI) will create an additional $2.9 trillion of business value and 6.2 billion hours of worker productivity […]

How High Performance Computing is Powering the Age of Genomic Big Data

What does bacteria, a blade of grass and the human body have in common? On the surface, very little. But given the title of this blog, you’re probably way ahead of me. At a cellular level, they all make use of the same superb genetic database to control their appearance, as well as how […]

PDSH, SLE, and SLURM

Managing many systems from one is a basic need for system administrators. A need which has obvious development commonality judging from the myriad tools available that delegate work to other systems. Often the criteria used to target systems for management is understandably inflexible. Directory service management consoles and configuration management systems are good examples of […]

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 […]

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 […]
