    Big Data Leading to HPC Democratization

    The democratization of HPC is under way. Removing the complexities traditionally associated with HPC, and focusing on making insightful data more easily accessible to a company’s users are the lynchpins to greater adoption of high performance computing for organizations beyond the more traditional groups.

    HPC is no longer simply about crunching information. The science has evolved to include predicting and developing actionable insights. That is where the smaller, newer adopters uncover the true value of HPC.

    However, these organizations can become overwhelmed by the amount, size, and types of information they’re collecting, storing, and analyzing. Increasingly, these enterprises are identifying HPC as an efficient and cost effective solution to quickly glean valuable insights from their big data applications.

    That cost-effective efficiency can yield impressive measureable results. In just one example, Onur Celebioglu, Dell’s director of HPC & SAP HANA solutions, Engineered Solutions and Cloud, cited how HPC has allowed life sciences using big data to slash genetic sequencing from four days to just four hours per patient. That reduction has provided an untold improvement in treatment plans, which has bettered the lives of patients and their families.

    Greater democratization also occurs when companies realize it is possible to leverage HPC, cloud, and big data to benefit their business without abandoning their existing systems. Having the ability to build onto an existing system as business needs warrant, allows more organizations that otherwise couldn’t reap the benefits of HPC to do so.

    Foglight APM SaaS Edition now supports .NET

    I'm pleased to announce the availability of .NET monitoring with the Foglight APM SaaS Edition. 

    The .NET agent includes full support for major Foglight APM features such as:

    • 100% tracing and SQL query collection
    • Our powerful differential analytics that find performance problems among thousands of factors
    • Visual queries and advanced heat map and histogram visualizations with built-in templates to find bottlenecks and resource contention
    • Automatic end user monitoring plus integration with our Android and iOS SDKs for end to end monitoring of mobile applications
    • Simple configuration and UI to support large and elastic applications without overwhelming you

     In addition, the .NET agent also monitors the health of your IIS server.   

    We're pretty excited about it, we hope you'll try it at www.foglight.com/trials.

    Ease of Use for Systems Management is Key for EDU

    In earlier blogs, I’ve explained how important it is for systems management solutions to save educational institutions time and money and enhance student learning by keeping devices secure and available. But what about the systems management solutions themselves? With limited IT staff and budget, educational institutions need tools that are easy to deploy and use and that will continue to deliver value as the institution grows — without requiring increased headcount.

    Florida’s Seminole County Public Schools, for example, was very concerned about ease of installation and maintenance when it began looking for a comprehensive systems management solution. Some vendors, the district found, proposed solutions that would have required IT staff to install, configure and maintain multiple servers. Moreover, some products had multiple components that needed to be integrated, making the solution much tougher to deploy district-wide. These choices were simply too complex and expensive to maintain, the district decided.
