Time for HPC to Take it’s Rightful Place in the Datacenter

In May 2011 I moved my family to a sleepy little town in Utah called Provo. Utah is far different than sunny Southern California where I had lived my whole life. I started working for this hot little Cloud Management Platform (CMP) company called Adaptive Computing. Adaptive Computing was a little different from the Hi-Tech […]

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 […]

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 […]

Here at Adaptive Computing, we power many of the world’s largest private/hybrid cloud and technical computing environments with our award-winning Moab optimization and scheduling software. Moab enables large enterprises in oil and gas, financial, manufacturing, and research as well as academic and government to perform simulations and analyze Big Data faster, more accurately and most cost […]

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

I 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. As I toured the launch sites and walked the halls of the […]

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 […]

In the News: Adaptive Computing Featured In HPC Publications

We’ve had a busy summer with industry conferences and events, and software announcements of our own. (If you haven’t heard the news, take a look at our News/Events posts, in addition to our most recent blog posts to get all the insights). In the meantime, take a look at what the HPC industry has been saying […]
