Accelerating Genomic Analysis

One of the biggest catchphrases in modern science is Human Genome–the DNA coding that largely pre-determines who we are and many of our medical outcomes. By mapping and analyzing the structure of the human genetic code, scientists and doctors have already started to identify the causes of many diseases and to pinpoint effective treatments based […]

ISC 2014 Student Cluster Challenge: EPCC Record-Breaking Cluster

The University of Edinburgh’s entry into the ISC 2014 Student Cluster Competition, EPCC, has been awarded first place in the LINPACK test. The EPCC team harnessed Boston’s HPC cluster to smash the 10Tflop mark for the first time – shattering the previous record of 9.27Tflops set by students at ASC14 earlier this month. The team […]

Deploying Ceph with High Performance Networks

As data continues to grow exponentially storing today’s data volumes in an efficient way is a challenge.  Many traditional storage solutions neither scale-out nor make it feasible from Capex and Opex perspective, to deploy Peta-Byte or Exa-Byte data stores. In this newly published whitepaper, we summarize the installation and performance benchmarks of a Ceph storage […]

Process Affinity: Hop on the Bus, Gus!

This is an excerpt of a post published today on the Cisco HPC Networking blog by Joshua Ladd, Mellanox: At some point in the process of pondering this blog post I noticed that my subconscious had, much to my annoyance, registered a snippet of the chorus to Paul Simon’s timeless classic “50 Ways to Leave […]
