Can Object Storage Compete with Parallel File Systems?

For the past few years, the value of object storage in the HPC space has been to provide economical storage that can be metered with multi-protocol support and interfaces to traditional and new RESTful applications. At the heart of the value proposition is being able to offload primary storage. In most cases, we are talking […]

High Speed Computing on the Oregon Coast

Last week, I had the unique opportunity to attend and speak at the Salishan Conference on High Speed Computing at the Salishan Lodge on Gleneden Beach, Oregon. The conference was founded in 1981 and this year’s theme was “Maximizing Return on Investment for HPC in a Changing Computing Landscape,” with the majority of attendees hailing […]

Object Storage: 3 Predictions for 2018

2017 was a turning point for object storage. Ever since content addressable or key-value based storage was created, storage analysts and IT execs wondered if it was a technology in search of a problem to solve. Was it really just a “better mousetrap?” As we enter into 2018, there are a number of trends in […]

The 3 Changing Characteristics of HPC Storage

Historically in the High-Performance Computing (HPC) space, storage was evaluated by cost vs performance. Most of the budget was spent on high-performance storage because it meant faster time to results. Once data sets were rendered, modeled or any other form of analysis was performed, the data either stayed on the high-performance layer or was painstakingly […]

The World Series of HPC: SC17

Fall is in the air and while my hometown Houston Astros are duking it out with the LA Dodgers in the 113th Major League Baseball World Series, I’m focused on preparation for what could be called the world series of high-performance computing (HPC)—the SC17 conference. It takes a lot of work to be at the […]

Active Archives: Object Storage for Data Sets in HPC

Supercomputing, or High Performance Computing (HPC), is now over 50 years old. Needless to say, HPC and supercomputers have come a long way since the 1960s, and a number of developments have contributed to that progress. Many players have come and gone in this space, and the advancements have been staggering. From GFLOPS to TFLOPS […]

HPC, DR and Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey reminds us just how much predictive capabilities and warning systems have progressed over the past few decades, in no small part because of the availability of past data and the capabilities we now have with instrumentation, detailed data sets and high-performance computing (HPC). Meteorologists do two types of predictions: seasonal probabilities and the track […]
