New Market Dynamics Report: HPC Life Sciences

HPC Life Sciences

Scientific research in the life sciences is often akin to searching for needles in haystacks. Finding the one protein, chemical, or genome that behaves or responds in the way the scientist is looking for is the key to the discovery process. For decades, high performance computing (HPC) systems have accelerated this process, often by helping to identify and eliminate in feasible targets sooner.

DK Panda Presents: Big Data – Hadoop and Memcached

DK Panda

“As InfiniBand is getting used in scientific computing environments, there is a big demand to harness its benefits for enterprise environments for handling big data and analytics. This talk will focus on high-performance and scalable designs of Hadoop using native RDMA support of InfiniBand and RoCE. Designs for various components in Hadoop (such as HDFS, MapReduce, RPC, and HBASE) and their benefits based on the RDMA package for Apache Hadoop will be presented. RDMA-based design for scalable Memcached (used in Web 2.0) and the associated benefits will be presented.”
