Cray Rolls Out Hadoop Cluster Solution

Today Cray announced a new Hadoop solution that combines supercomputing technologies with an “enterprise-strength” approach to Big Data analytics. Available later this month, Cray cluster supercomputers for Hadoop will pair Cray CS300 systems with the Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop. More and more organizations are expanding their usage of Hadoop software beyond just basic storage and reporting. But while they’re developing increasingly complex algorithms and becoming more dependent on getting value out of Hadoop systems, they are also pushing...

Pedraforca Cluster to be First to combine ARM CPUs, GPUs, and InfiniBand

Today the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) announced plans to deploy its next-gen ARM prototype cluster for HPC in July. Powered by ARM Cortex-A9, Nvidia Tesla K20 GPUs, and Mellanox QDR InfiniBand, the hybrid supercomputer will be named Pedraforca. By using InfiniBand, Pedraforca enables direct GPU-to-GPU communication through RDMA on ARM. It features a low-power Nvidia Tegra® 3 (4-core Cortex-A9) to run the operating system and drive both the Tesla K20 accelerator and the QDR InfiniBand at the minimum power consumption.
