Custom Workflows for Oil and Gas

There are only a few industries as renowned for massive investments in the highest end of computing technology as the oil and gas sector. High performance computing capabilities, matched with sophisticated modeling and simulation codes, and increasingly, top of the line tools to ingest, manage and analyze unprecedented amounts of diverse data mean that infrastructure […]

HPC Node Orchestration

Note – This article, along with others from the Adaptive Computing DevOps team continues its focus on the emerging tools and practices of DevOps and their direct ability to provide measured value to HPC clusters and admins alike. The job of the HPC systems administrations continues to get more and more difficult. We see new clusters of […]

“I like to break things” and Other Reasons for a Career in QA

When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them that I work in Software QA.   Unless they also work in software or IT, they usually give me an odd look, as though I told them I make porcupine hats. My response to that look or the follow-up question is “I break […]

The NFL, HPC, and Big Data

On July 30th the NFL announced a partnership with Zebra Technologies with the mission to get more advanced, precise tickets for each player in a game, and to log this information in real-time. These advanced statistics will then be made available almost immediately for the purpose–at least for the 2014-2015 season–of enhancing the viewing experience. To […]

Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT)

Once in a while we get lucky with the ordering of technology trends. In this instance, I am referring to the ordering of big data and the Internet of Things (IoT). Without question, IoT is going to cause all sorts of interesting challenges with respect to data. If the big data trend had not emerged […]

Inspiring the Next Generation of Women to Blaze Trails & Embrace STEM Careers

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Women in STEM

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Women in STEMI recently returned from vacation in Orlando, Fla. where I had the opportunity to visit the Kennedy Space Center for the first time. It was exciting to see our customers and partners’ logos lining the walls as reminders of what HPC has helped create. […]

What’s Missing For A Successful Big Data Implementation?

My previous blog proposed an answer to the drivers for big data and why it’s happening now. To review they are: cloud computing, low cost, high performance hardware, network ubiquity, mobility, social networks/computing, and sensor/machines data. Ok, so what’s missing from this list? When several technology areas evolve in an overlapping fashion and at high […]

Game Changer for HPC Scale and Performance

The exascale wave in today’s HPC market is creating an inflection point, where familiar solutions are simply inadequate. Modern supercomputers have so many internal network interconnects and coordinate so many calculations at such a rate that traditional scheduling cannot keep up. Jobs sit idle when they should be running; policy constraints are lost in the […]

Benefits of OpenStack for HPC

Join us on August 20th (2-3pm MDT) for the next Society of HPC Professionals (SHPCP) event, “Benefits of OpenStack for HPC” webinar featuring a panel of industry experts. The industry looks to OpenStack as an agnostic open source platform that can span multiple environments such as Cloud, HPC and Big Data. Adaptive Computing has compiled […]
