When it comes to high-performance computing (HPC), engineers can never get enough performance. Even minor improvements at the chip-level can have a dramatic financial impact in hyper-competitive industries such as computer-aided engineering (CAE) for manufacturing and electronic design automation (EDA). With their respective x86 processor lineups, Intel and AMD continue to battle for bragging rights,

In March I worked on this article with folks at Dremio, explaining the challenge of data copies in modern “data lakehouse” environments. An organization’s data is copied for many reasons, namely ingesting datasets into data warehouses, creating performance-optimized copies and building BI extracts for analysis. Unfortunately, data replication, transformation and movement can result in longer

Apocalyptic warnings about the risks of AI are hardly new. Stephen Hawking warned that “the development of full AI could spell the end of the human race”(1) and Elon Musk has declared unregulated AI more dangerous than nuclear weapons(2). While computers aren’t out-thinking humans just yet, we’re already confronting the first challenge of the AI-age

I’ve been interested in workload scheduling for ~13 years now. I come at the topic from an HPC perspective, but as I continue to learn the space, I’ve become a fan of Google’s Kubernetes/Borg effort. I recently had the opportunity to test drive Kubernetes using Rancher, a container management platform and write a few articles
