A New UI in Town: Moab Viewpoint

There’s a new UI in town. Adaptive Computing’s Moab 8.1 release is nearly here, and with it comes a brand new user interface. This release contains the first drop of the new Admin Portal. We’ve been hard at work on this, and I’m pretty excited about it. For starters, we’ve changed our approach to storing […]

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) […]

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 […]

High Throughput Computing Toolset

A couple of years ago I visited the Arlington National Cemetery. It was a humbling experience to see so many graves of those who so bravely fought for and defended the freedoms that enabled a once oppressed people to found and build a great nation. I was impressed with the precision and respect on display […]

Santa, Pseudoscience and Supercomputers

Every year on Christmas Eve, Santa travels the globe delivering presents to children everywhere. Santa is our culture’s only mythic figure truly believed in by a large percentage of the population. It’s a fact that most of the true believers are under eight years old, and that’s a pity. ~ Chris Van Allsburg As we […]

#HPCMatters – Growing Your Food

This entry is part 1 of 7 in the series #HPCMatters

When I hear the word farming, the first thing that comes to mind is my maternal grandfather, Pawpaw Karnes, working on his farm. I think of hay bales, cattle, crops, and robbing the bees; I think of dirt, sweat, and the smell of country air, and I imagine things that have been true of farming for […]

Empowering Girls in STEM Part II

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Women in STEM

We’ve come a long way as women. We can vote. We can wear pants. We can do pretty much whatever we want. Women in the United States have many freedoms and opportunities that those who came before us were not afforded. Why then, are we falling behind the rest of the world when it comes […]

HPC’s New Normal

When I first started with Adaptive Computing a few years back we struggled with at times with the consistent methods to install our very own stack. Often developers would have “their way” of completing an install and configuration of our Moab HPC Suite Enterprise Edition. Sadly this caused numerous silos of work that was not […]

The UberCloud Experiment Shows Why #HPCMatters

This entry is part 2 of 7 in the series #HPCMatters

Every year when we gather for SC, we wait with bated breath for the announcement of the next Top500 list. It’s our own little celebration of the ever-growing size and power of the high-end supercomputers. We use these systems to answer some of the most complex questions out there. However, bigger is not always better. […]
