Adaptive Computing: A Year in Review

It has been quite a year at Adaptive Computing! We hosted another successful MoabCon, attended SC14 and learned more on why #HPCMatters, and introduced the Beta release of Moab 8.1. The Moab HPC Suite – Enterprise Edition (Moab 8.1) boosts elastic computing, and provides updates to the next-gen admin portal: Viewpoint. We’re continuing to help customers […]

Why Startups Own the Future of Big Data

Rich Brueckner from insideHPC shared his knowledge and insight during SC14 at the Adaptive Computing Theater. He presented on, “Data and Goliath – Why Startups Own the Future of Big Data.” He discussed a hobby of his: inside-Startups and in the context of big data, there’s an important thing that’s going. Companies like Docker (containers) […]

What’s Pushing Technology Boundaries in 2015?

As we approach 2015, I find it an exciting time to be in tech. For more than two decades, I’ve experienced a lot in my career — the birth of VoIP, Wi-Fi, high-speed Internet Access, Cloud, Big Data and many others. But for some reason, I’m more excited about technology then I’ve been in a long […]

Facing Big Data Challenges Head On

Here at Adaptive Computing, we’ve made big data a priority by more efficiently processing intense simulations and big data analysis. Our Big Workflow solution derives its name from its ability to solve big data challenges by streamlining the workflow to deliver valuable insights from massive quantities of data across multiple platforms, environments, and locations. Beyond […]

Engineering 101: Why You’d Love Software Engineering

I love working in the field of software engineering and I want to share some points on why. It’s Diverse When you are working as a software engineer you can be working in any industry in the world with many different kinds of company cultures. In addition to the many, many software companies which exist, […]

Big Data Challenge: Data Wrangling

One of the well-known difficulties for data analytics is data wrangling. Essentially, the process of “data wrangling”—sometimes lovingly referred to as janitor work—is transforming raw data into something that can actually be analyzed by algorithms and data scientists. When you have totally raw data it is very difficult to process, especially with natural language. Think […]

Predicting the Big Data Landscape

In the time since I co-wrote Big Data for Dummies (Wiley, 2013), there has been an explosion in the interest around big data (and big analytics and big workflow). While the interest, and concomitant marketing, has been exploding, big data implementations have proceeded at a relatively normal pace. Now that we are closing out 2014, I […]

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 […]

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 […]
