Designing Convergent HPC and Big Data Software Stacks: An Overview of the HiBD Project

DK Panda from Ohio State University gave this talk at the 2019 Stanford HPC Conference. “This talk will provide an overview of challenges in designing convergent HPC and BigData software stacks on modern HPC clusters. An overview of RDMA-based designs for Hadoop (HDFS, MapReduce, RPC and HBase), Spark, Memcached, Swift, and Kafka using native RDMA support for InfiniBand and RoCE will be presented. Enhanced designs for these components to exploit HPC scheduler (SLURM), parallel file systems (Lustre) and NVM-based in-memory technology will also be presented. Benefits of these designs on various cluster configurations using the publicly available RDMA-enabled packages from the OSU HiBD project will be shown.”

What can you do with 381,392 CPU cores? For Cineca, it means enabling computational scientists to expand a large part of the worlds body of knowledge from the nanoscale to the astronomic, from calculating quantum effects in new materials to supporting bioinformatics for advanced healthcare research to screening millions of possible chemical combinations to attack []

The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) has launched its first calls for expressions of interest, to select the sites that will host the Joint Undertakings first supercomputers (petascale and precursor to exascale machines) in 2020. “Deciding where Europe will host its most powerful petascale and precursor to exascale machines is only the first step in this great European initiative on high performance computing,” saidMariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society. “Regardless of where users are located in Europe, these supercomputers will be used in more than 800 scientific and industrial application fields for the benefit of European citizens.”
