Russ White considers the challenges of using GPU clusters in high performance computing. Aside from possibly lacking software to take advantage of it, the other challenge lies in the connection network. Ethernet is the default standard for this, but requires additional overhead.

At Commvault GO 2017, Stephen Foskett sat down with Congruity360 COO Mark Shirman.

Despite some technical hurdles, Tom Hollingsworth and Rich Stroffolino return to bring you the IT news from the week that was! In this episode they rundown new announcements from Nutanix, Cisco, AWS, and Sprint. They then dig into the two big stories of the week, the VMware acquisition of VeloCloud, and the merger of Broadcom and Qualcomm.
If the name Congruity360 isn’t immediately familiar, don’t worry, you haven’t fallen out of the IT loop. The company was established in 2017 after a merger with Congruity and KNJ. Congruity itself was only established in 2016 after a prior merger between Rockland IT and MSDI. All this adds up to a company with a long legacy in data management, but without a lot of name recognition.
