The Goal of HP's Radical The Machine: Reshaping Computing Around Memory

...HPE's goal with The Machine is to build a large pool of persistent memory that application processors can just access. "We want all the warm and hot data to reside in a very large in-memory domain," Wheeler said. "At the software level, we are trying to eliminate a lot of the shuffling of data...

Solving HPC Conflicts with Containers

Countless stories, comics, and television shows have driven home two very unpleasant stereotypes: the angry, unhelpful system administrator who can’t wait to say “no!” to a user request, and the clueless, clumsy user always a keystroke away from taking down the entire infrastructure. There is a...
