Defensive weak spots are just waiting to be found and exploited by persistent cyber attackers. But with cyber threat analysis, you quickly identify, disrupt and mitigate breaches by uncovering critical insights unseen by traditional defenses.
Since SAP introduced its in-memory database, SAP HANA, customers have significantly accelerated everything from their core business operations to big data analytics. But capitalizing on SAP HANA’s full potential requires computational power and memory capacity beyond the capabilities of many existing data center platforms.
To ensure that deployments in the AWS Cloud could meet the most stringent SAP HANA demands, AWS collaborated with SAP and Intel to deliver the Amazon EC2 X1 and X1e instances, part of the Amazon EC2 Memory-Optimized instance family. With four Intel® Xeon® E7 8880 v3 processors (which can power 128 virtual CPUs), X1 offers more memory than any other SAP-certified cloud native instance available today.
This paper provides CIMdata's perspective on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis; the motivations for its use, its value and future, and the importance for making CFD available to all engineers earlier in the product design/development lifecycle.
Data movement and management is a major pain point for organizations operating HPC environments. Whether you are deploying a single cluster, or managing a diverse research facility, you should be taking a data centric approach. As data volumes grow and the cost of compute drops, managing data consumes more of the HPC budget and computational time. The need for Data Centric HPC architectures grows dramatically as research teams pool their resources to purchase more resources and improve overall utilization. Learn more in this white paper about the key considerations when expanding from traditional compute-centric to data-centric HPC.
The data center is central to IT strategy and houses the computational power, storage resources, and applications
necessary to support an enterprise business. A flexible data center infrastructure than can support and quickly deploy new applications can result in significant competitive advantage, but designing such a data center requires solid initial planning and thoughtful consideration of port density, access-layer uplink bandwidth, true server capacity, oversubscription, mobility, and other details.
Every ten to fifteen years, the types of workloads servers host swiftly shift. This happened with the first single-mission mainframes and today, as disruptive technologies appear in the form of big data, cloud, mobility and security. When such a shift occurs, legacy servers rapidly become obsolete, dragging down enterprise productivity and agility. Fortunately, each new server shift also brings its own suite of enabling technologies, which deliver new economies of scale and entire new computational approaches.
In this interview, long-time IT technologist Mel Beckman talks to HP Server CTO for ISS Americas Tim Golden about his take on the latest server shift, innovative enabling technologies such as software-defined everything, and the benefit of a unified management architecture. Tim discusses key new compute technologies such as HP Moonshot, HP BladeSystem, HP OneView and HP Apollo, as well as the superiority of open standards over proprietary architectures for scalable, cost-effect
