Jim Discusses Leveraging Multicore Systems for Hadoop and HPC Workloads
Check out Pervasive DataRush Chief Technologist Jim Falgout at the AMD Fusion Developer Summit June 13-16 at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA. The Summit includes more than 90 technology sessions across eight Technology Topics. AMD tech leaders, industry experts, and members of academia lead the sessions.
Jim’s presentation, Session 1421 slated for Tuesday June 14th at 5:15 pm, will center on the critical importance of unlocking the parallelism of multi-core servers and clusters, particularly Hadoop-based clusters, to solve big data problems. Despite the promise of scaled-out hardware, users are encountering long processing times and complexities building MapReduce jobs.
Jim argues that the right approach to solving these challenges is to better exploit the performance potential of multicore. His presentation includes examples of Hadoop and HPC workloads running on clusters and single multi-core servers—including web analytics and bioinformatics—detailing the performance and energy efficiency gains that are possible with scaling up, as well as out.
Learn more about the technology behind his approach.
As mentioned, the Summit covers eight technology topics including:
Developer Tools: Covers development tools ranging from compilers and debuggers to performance visualization tools. Sessions cover the state of the art in compiler technology (CPU and GPU), debugging and profiling OpenCL™, and automatic data movement.
Enterprise Computing: Features sessions that discuss using multicore technology to handle large data, showcase software being developed today utilizing multicore CPUs, and show early work of applying the data parallel capabilities of GPUs to databases.
High Performance Computing: Presents a sampling of portable and standards based heterogeneous computing. Come see innovative uses of GPUs, extreme optimizations, power efficient implementations, benchmarks, libraries, and real world applications in physics, chemistry, finance and rendering.
Multimedia Processing: Sessions on image processing, audio processing, video processing, telepresence, video quality enhancement, computer vision, transcoding, content recognition, image retrieval, multimedia algorithm optimization for parallel processing and codecs.
Professional Graphics and Visual Computing: Focuses on various areas of visual computing, including mixed-mode OpenGL/DX/OpenCL™ interoperability, and advanced rendering and compute techniques.
Programming Models: Showcases the state of the art in parallel programming models and techniques for heterogeneous platforms. Topics covered include: programming models for next generation GPU architectures and techniques for building domain specific languages on heterogeneous platforms.
Security: Sessions on password recovery and audit, encryption, and steganography detection.
User Interface and Media Experiences: A focus on gesture recognition, touch recognition, face recognition, UIs for new user experiences, video management, video playback, and Web user experiences.
There’s something for everyone. The Pervasive DataRush team hopes to see you at the AMD Fusion Developer Summit!
