Trends in Life Sciences High-Performance Computing, Part 2

23 Mar 2018 Trends in Life Sciences High-Performance Computing, Part 2

In part two of the Berman and Gardner interview (Part 1 here) the discussion turns to storage technology options, fast networking for life sciences, and diversifying choices in processors from Intel, AMD, and IBM, , . They consider technology examples and issues of power utilization, raw cost and how to interpret vendor signals around diversifying CPU architecture and marketplace commitments. The storage topics cover available technologies, economics, the rising needs for peta-capable scale, tiered storage, and how it all fits with cloud options. The conversation also turns to high-speed networking, data movement speeds and scale.

“People are always guessing when InfiniBand will die out and Ethernet will take hold. We still see InfiniBand demand being strong going forward while we note that Mellanox continues to sell more and more Ethernet. That pushes a healthy diversified ecosystem.”

Aaron Gardner, Director of Technology, BioTeam
