HPE Builds Lighthouse Platform On GreenLake Services

The hybrid cloud is convincing established players that they need to play on both sides of the net, in the cloud (as well as the edge) and on premises. We’ve seen Amazon Web Services (with its Outposts appliances), Microsoft Azure (with Azure Stack), Google Cloud (with Anthos) and Oracle Cloud


Google Does The Server Math With Tau Cloud Instances

In a world where Moore’s Law is slowing and hardware has to be increasingly co-designed with the system software stack and the applications that run above it, the matrix of possible combinations of hardware is getting wider and deeper. This, more than anything else, shows that the era of general


Lenovo Gives SuperMUC-NG Supercomputer An Upgrade

Lenovo became a powerhouse in the HPC and supercomputer spaces back in 2014, when it bought IBM’s System x server division for $2.1 billion in a deal that also saw it license storage and system management software from Big Blue. The acquisition vaulted the company into a highly competitive field


Dell: Living On The Edge With Its Head In The Clouds

Deepak Patil knows all about the cloud. For the last third of his more than 15 years with Microsoft, Patil was one of the key figures behind the launch of Azure, the enterprise software giant’s public cloud. Azure has grown steadily and become the second-largest public cloud provider, gaining ground

U.S. Institutions Put Fujitsu A64FX Through the Paces

The Fugaku supercomputer, based on the Arm-driven A64FX processor and custom Fujitsu Tofu-D fabric, has been proven architecturally on a number of HPC and large-scale AI benchmarks and has drawn considerable attention among the supercomputing set. Among institutions interested in the capabilities of A64X is the National Science Foundation (NSF)


Think Locally About Data Management, But Act Globally

The amount of data being created is continuing to rise exponentially and it’s coming in all shapes and sizes and from myriad locations. It’s structured and – increasingly – unstructured and being generated in the cloud, the edge and on premises by everything from the largest supercomputers to the small


EPCC Kicking Tires on New CS-1 AI System

The Edinburgh Parallel Computing Center (EPPC) is up and running with its Cerebras CS-1 waferscale system and is already working with European companies in biomedical and cybersecurity arenas in addition to its own research into different programming and AI models and projects in natural language processing and genome-wide association studies.


Cortus Hopes to Stake Early RISC-V HPC Claim

There are some unique developments afoot at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), which stands to reason for the only HPC site to be housed in a former church. The site will be home to the world’s first RISC-V-based supercomputer, a collaboration underpinned by commercial RISC-V company, SiFive, whom we talked


AMD on Why Chiplets—And Why Now

Moore’s Law is not just a simple rule of thumb about transistor counts, it’s an economic, technical, and developmental force—and one strong enough to push some of the largest chipmakers to future-proof architectural approaches. That force pushed some of AMD’s lead architects to reroute around the once-expected cadence of new


AI Is RISC-V’s Trojan Horse into the Datacenter

If the workload-specific datacenter dominates in the near term, it could be RISC-V’s time to shine. While most often associated with embedded devices, there is a push to use RISC-V as the base for AI and targeted workloads, giving the ISA a springboard into much larger systems. So far, there
