Vertically Architecting Ultimate Resource Utilization For Cloud And HPC

Summary: Achieving high resource utilization in internet-scale datacenters is key to cloud providers, while also of high significance to scientific discovery in supercomputing, where we are increasingly witnessing scientific simulations co-existing with data analytics and visualization jobs. In this talk, I will walk you through two pilot systems prototyped by IBM Research – Ireland, embodying novel computer architectures enabling – among others – new and unprecedented levels of resource utilization.
