In this slidecast, the Radio Free HPC team interviews Fritz Ferstl, CTO of Univa. Topics include Big Data, HPC, and the continuing convergence of both. While what we think of as traditional HPC may differ greatly from Big Data analytics, that seems to be changing. With a long history in high performance computing and customers […]
In this video from the 2013 Open Fabrics Developer Workshop, Bill Boas from Cray presents: Massive I/O Requirements for the SKA Telescope. Processing the vast quantities of data produced by the SKA will require very high performance central supercomputers capable of 100 petaflops per second processing power. This is about 50 times more powerful than […]
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team discusses Lustre and LUG 2013 with Brent Gorda. Now part of Intel in their High Performance Data Division, Gorda was CEO of Whamcloud when the company was acquired last summer. Gorda recently wrote a post about the rapid growth of the Lustre community, so we started […]

In this video from the Lustre User Group 2013, Jeff Denworth from DDN presents: DataDirect Networks Update. DDN has developed a Hadoop solution that is all about time to value: It simplifies rollout so that enterprises can get up and running more quickly, provides typical DDN performance to accelerate data processing, and reduces the amount […]
In this video from the 2013 Open Fabrics Developer Workshop, D.K. Panda from Ohio State University presents: High Performance RDMA-based Design for Big Data and Web 2.0 memcached. You can check out more OFA videos at our Open Fabrics Workshop Video Gallery.
In this video from the Lustre User Group 2013 conference, Sage Weil from Inktank presents: An Intro to Ceph for HPC. Ceph is a free software unified storage platform designed to present object, block, and file storage from a single distributed cluster. Ceph’s main goals are to be completely distributed without a single point of […]
Over at Admin HPC, Douglas Eadline writes that Hadoop could be the new corporate HPC for Big Data. The growth of Hadoop and the hardware on which it runs has been increasing. Certainly it can be seen as a subset of HPC, offering a single yet powerful algorithm that has been optimized for a large […]
In this video from the 2013 Open Fabrics Developer Workshop, Sreev Doddabalapur from Mellanox presents: Accelerating Big Data over RDMA. You can check out more OFA videos at our Open Fabrics Workshop Video Gallery.
In this video from the Lustre User Group 2013 conference, Josh Judd from Warp Mechanics presents: Warp Mechanics ZFS Array. The WARP Mechanics 39830 is a turnkey network-attached non-volatile RAM + SSD system with industry-leading price, performance, and scalability. This system maximizes the IOPs performance for the most demanding application profiles. It is an ultra-dense […]
