HPC Poised For Big Changes, Top To Bottom
There is a lot of change coming down the pike in the high performance computing arena, but it has not happened as yet and that is reflected in the current Top 500 rankings of supercomputers in the world... HPC is a healthy and vibrant ecosystem and not, like enterprise datacenters and, until very recently, hyperscalers, a monoculture that is not providing the most efficient compute for the job and in a post-Moore’s Law world possibly subject to extinction... if storage were added in here (which it isn’t) then DataDirect Networks and Seagate Technology would get most of the profits in HPC storage...

Archiving Solutions at the 2017 NAB Show
"At the 2017 NAB show, companies offering digital archiving solutions were prominent in the exhibits and conference program… DDN was highlighting its WOS object storage capabilities including its new Extended ObjectAssure data protection and S3 multi-site connectivity options that lower archive and disk backup costs and outperform public cloud for data-transfer speed and reliability. Extended ObjectAssure expands customer choice of protection methods, providing a wide variety of data-protection options. WOS’s low-overhead expenses make the cost of object storage competitive with tape storage alternatives..."

The 12th edition of TERATEC Forum will take place on 27 and 28 June 2017
In a fews days, the TERATEC association is going to hold the 12th edition of its annual Forum at the prestigious Ecole Polytechnique in Palaiseau, France. For those who are not familiar with TERATEC, the association is a European pole of competence in high performance digital simulation which brings today over eighty technological and industrial companies, laboratories and research centers, universities and engineering schools to combine their resources in the strategic area of Simulation and HPC. Many notorious companies of the HPC universe such as DDN, Cray, Mellanox or Nvidia are TERATEC members…
