Understanding Data Intensive Analysis on Large-Scale HPC Compute Systems

Data intensive computing is an important and growing sector of scientific and commercial computing and places unique demands on computer architectures. While the demands are continuing to grow, most of present systems, and even planned future systems might not meet these computing needs very effectively. The majority of the world’s most powerful supercomputers are designed for running numerically intensive applications that can make efficient use of distributed memory. There are a number of factors that limit the utility of these systems for knowledge discovery and data mining. Read more…
