Time To Accelerate Datacenter Performance

Sponsored Post: CPU speed matters a lot to certain types of process-intensive applications like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), so anything that helps to boost the raw power of the servers which inhabit modern datacenters will provide a welcome performance boost. That’s the primary aim of the newly


Myths and Legends in HPC…With Some Legends

It’s rare in supercomputing to discover a paper that’s both insightful and amusing, but a distributed team led by Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka from RIKEN has managed to produce one. “Myths and Legends in High Performance Computing” tackles the many angles of hype flying around HPC, from challenging the role AI


Application Acceleration For The Masses

Sponsored Feature: In an ideal world, if you knew exactly and precisely what application you are going to run, then co-designing a custom application and its processor would be a fairly simple matter and price/performance and performance per watt would always be as perfect as it could be. But we


The Highly Profitable Chip Making Monopoly Called TSMC

When Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing speaks, the datacenter sector of the IT industry listens because, with few exceptions, this foundry etches the compute, networking, and storage engines that power the datacenter. And the rest of the entire IT industry also listens, particularly the smartphone industry and a good portion of the


Making It Easier To Break The SONiC Barrier For Networking

Thanks to the ubiquity of the X86 server platform, the Kubernetes container controller, and the KVM server virtualization hypervisor, it is relatively easy to compute like a hyperscaler or cloud builder. But networking like one has been another matter entirely. But it is getting easier. In July 2015, Google gave
