How Big Compute Helps Genomics

Modern science involves sorting through mountains of data, and nowhere is this truer than in the study of genes. Modern computers have enough power to make sequencing an organism’s genome fairly easy, but that wasn’t always the case. The best way to see...

Trends in the AI Revolution from 2016

The AI Revolution is in full swing.  We are lucky to see a lot of activity in the AI Revolution first-hand as the premier cloud provider for accelerated computational resources. 2016 has been an incredible year for machine learning. We have seen powerful frameworks...

The Internet of Machines

I remember feeling a little cynical when I first heard the phrase “Internet of Things” or IoT because at first, it sounded to me like just another marketing term for the tech giants to use to peddle their wares to the IT marketplace.  But what else would...

The Time Value of Big Data

In the investment community, the time value of money states that money is always more valuable today than in the future.  This is largely due to interest and dividends that grow wealth over time, so it’s always better to put money to work sooner rather than later. In...

Cloud Data Comes in 3 Flavors

Whether Big Data or traditional, structured or unstructured, Cloud Data can be categorized into 3 primary forms… Aggregate Cloud Data This form of cloud data, whether public, hybrid, or private, is especially popular with multi-site organizations.  Generally, data...

Big Compute and its Role in Big Data

Big Data without Big Compute is just a large collection of unstructured information with no purpose and no real value. “Data” is the noun while “Compute” is the verb.  It’s not enough for the data to exist, we must derive value from it through computation – something...

Scaling HPC Applications

Last week we presented our latest Compute30™ webinar focused on scaling HPC applications… We began with the premise that increasing performance of HPC applications in today’s world is about scalability across cores and nodes, not just pure algorithmic...

3 Ways Big Data and HPC are Converging

Big Data is becoming much more than just widespread distribution of cheap storage and cheap computation on commodity hardware.  Could Big Data Analytics become the new “killer app” for HPC? IDC calls it “High Performance Data Analysis”.  The speed of computation...

Cloud Solutions versus Cloud Services

With a dizzying menu of public cloud options to choose from, how do you know which one(s) will get the job done quickly and cost effectively?  The answer is to think about cloud solutions, rather than just services. Cloud Solutions are Just like Other Solutions Before...

5 Ways HPC Makes Our Lives Better

HPC (High Performance Computing) is not just a technology showcase for setting world records or solving abstract theoretical physics problems.  HPC makes a real difference in our lives, helping scientists and businesses attack real world challenges head on.  We all...

Putting Kepler GPU Cards to Work in the Cloud

How Kepler GPU Cards are Reshaping the Cloud Computing Landscape Accessing the seemingly infinite pool of virtual machines, CPUs and memory in the cloud has been taking the IT industry by storm over the last several years.  Ubiquitous, on-demand access has become the...
