[session] A Cloud-based HPC Visualization Cluster | @CloudExpo @PenguinHPC #Cloud #Virtualization

Efficient Access to a Cloud-based HPC Visualization Cluster Data scientists must access high-performance computing resources across a wide-area network. To achieve cloud-based HPC visualization, researchers must transfer datasets and visualization results efficiently. HPC clusters now compute GPU-accelerated visualization in the cloud cluster. To efficiently display results remotely, a high-performance, low-latency protocol transfers the display from the cluster to a remote desktop. Further, tools to easily mount remote datasets and efficiently transfer that data into the HPC cluster are described, including performance characterization results. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Brian Fromme, a solutions engineer at Penguin Computing, will discuss how together, high-performance data transfer and display technologies are finally solving the challenges of remote acce...

Two Options for Web Content Filtering at the Speed of Now | @CloudExpo #SDN #Cloud #Virtualization

Two Options for Web Content Filtering at the Speed of Now Because not everything the internet offers is suitable for all users, organizations use web filters to block unwanted content. However, filtering content becomes challenging as networks speeds increase. Two filtering architectures are explored below, along with criteria to help you decide which option is the best fit for your organization. How Fast Can You Filter? To ensure service level and capacity as internet traffic increases, organizations need higher-speed networks. In telecom networks, to serve hundreds of thousands of users, 100 Gbps network links are introduced to keep up with the demand. Today, the market has reached a state of maturity regarding solutions for web content filtering at 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps, but filtering at 100 Gbps poses a whole set of new challenges. To filter content this quickly, th... (more)
