Hitting the Accelerator with GPUs

As organizations work to meet the performance demands of new data-intensive workloads, accelerated computing is gaining momentum in mainstream data centers. As data center operators struggle to stay ahead of a growing deluge of data while supporting new data-intensive applications, there’s a growing demand for systems that incorporate graphics processing units (GPUs). These accelerators, which complement the capabilities of CPUs at the heart of the system, use parallel processing to churn through large volumes of data at blazingly fast speeds. For years, organizations have used accelerators to rev up graphically intensive applications, such as those for … READ MORE

Accelerating the Dell EMC Partnership with the ‘New’ Cloudera

The platform design paradigm from the early days of Hadoop has been to co-locate compute and storage on the same server, which requires expanding both in tandem as your Hadoop cluster grows. This is an acceptable approach for workloads that need to expand compute and storage simultaneously. But, as Hadoop gained mainstream adoption, enterprises started finding workloads where the need for storage outpaced the need for compute. And now, after a decade of big data, enterprises are finding that historical data sets, though accessed less frequently, still need to be easily accessible. This has brought forth … READ MORE

Get Camera-Ready with the PowerEdge R740xd2

We live in a recorded world with increasing security risks. While it’s no surprise that video surveillance has expanded past banks, retail shops and airports, more organizations are now using CCTV for reasons beyond safety or legal requirements. That means if you have a bad hair day, it is definitely recorded somewhere. Setting up a reliable camera and storage system has its challenges. Video files are large, and they are only useful if you can quickly access them. And the video data itself needs to be kept secure and easy to manage. Plus, setup and testing … READ MORE

Dell EMC Unity XT Rises to the Top in Independent Storage Performance and Efficiency Testing

The success or failure of many storage solutions is often determined by an array’s performance across a variety of workloads. A modern storage array must concurrently deliver performance, data reduction and data services, enabling organizations to deliver increased efficiencies and thrive in today’s complex application environments. The Dell EMC Unity product line has already delivered on these capabilities by increasing data reduction rates by ~80% since initial release (December 2016). And now with the recently refreshed Unity XT, we’re raising the bar yet again. In order to quantify all of the enhancements we’ve made with Unity … READ MORE

The Power to Probe the Secrets of the Universe

Understanding our universe Particle physicists study subatomic particles such as quarks, electrons and neutrinos that serve as the building blocks of our universe. Understanding the structure and interactions among elementary particles and fields — at the smallest distance scale and highest attainable energy — can help unlock the secrets of the universe. For many years, the Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics (Nikhef) has conducted research into the universe’s elemental building blocks, their mutual forces and the structure of space and time. Nikhef’s work involving the Hadron Collider at the CERN accelerator complex in Geneva, Switzerland, … READ MORE
