• The Demands for Optical Transceivers in Edge Computing of the 5G Cloud Era

    5G motivates the edge computing progress. Higher rate and higher density optical transceivers will be required. Edge computing is the leading-edge technology for the next-generation data center. In the current period, edge computing is in the period of practice. It is important that how to develop edge computing and how to meet the needs of edge computing. On Jun. 25, 2019, the OCP China Day hosted in Beijing, China by one OCP Platinum member, Inspur. The distinguished guests from Microsoft, Facebook, LinkedIn, Baidu, Tencent, and Inspur attended the conference. They share vital topics such as artificial intelligence, edge computing, and SONiC about various leading-edge technologies here. Among these topics, edge computing has been frequently mentioned, here we will discuss the development of 5G and edge computing. Source: Inspur Edge Computing The emerging applications and exponential data growth have been driving cloud service to extend the edge. It is difficult to cope with all the data through the cloud service due to the requirements of low latency and the limitation of bandwidth, there is no doubt that edge computing is a…

  • HPC On Cloud? HPC On Cloud!

    In recent years, two brothers, High Performance Computing (HPC) and cloud computing, have always appeared in various occasions at the same time, and a new term has emerged — HPC On Cloud. What is HPC On Cloud? Why is there HPC On Cloud? Let’s talk about it together. Cloud Computing vs. HPC Let’s take a look at what their concepts are. Cloud computing is a kind of usage mode that distributes according to demand and charges according to usage. Users can put hard disks and CPUs on their computers or company servers on the Internet and make unified dynamic calls. They only need to pay by hour or even minute, instead of buying computers and servers by themselves. For example, cloud computing is similar to tap water at home, so we don’t need to build a water plant in our own home but just need to turn on the tap and distribute it on demand by paying. HPC is applied the area of large-scale data processing. Take Baidu’s project team as an example, HPC is used in many departments, such as speech…

  • Cloud Computing Is Accelerating the Development of Data Centers

    “Cloud computing” is one of the hottest topics at present. In China, most people of the Internet industry should have heard of “Ali Cloud”, “Tencent Cloud” and “Baidu Cloud”. When it comes to cloud computing, I always think of data centers, and then a picture of data centers floating in the clouds appears in my mind. This is because most of the time, cloud computing comes together with the topic of data center. So what is the relationship between cloud computing and data center? Let’s see it together. In the last article (What Are Supercomputing, High-Performance Computing and Cloud Computing?), I mentioned the definition of cloud computing — a pay-per-use model that provides available, convenient and on-demand network access to the configurable computing resource sharing pool (resources include network, server, storage, application software, services). The concept of cloud computing is proposed to break through the shortcomings of physical devices, because physical machines are too heavy and inconvenient, users may only need a computer keyboard, display and other peripherals. What shall we do? Physical devices in data centers are very powerful, and virtualization…

  • What Are Supercomputing, High-Performance Computing and Cloud Computing?

    In recent years, the terms “supercomputing”, “high performance computing” and “cloud computing” have often been talked about, but most people do not seriously understand what they are and what the difference is. This article will answer these questions in detail for you. Supercomputing is based on supercomputer. Supercomputers are computers capable of supercomputing. Supercomputing uses computers to research, design products and support complex decisions. In addition to the most advanced computing hardware systems, it also includes software systems and testing tools, and algorithms to solve complex computing. At present, China’s supercomputers are in the leading position in the world. In last year’s supercomputer 500 strong selection, China’s “Sunway TaihuLight” won the championship. Although such a giant has been developed, the specific application of supercomputers in China is still in a relatively backward position compared with the United States and Germany. High Performance Computing, referred to as HPC, is the application of high-performance computers. High-performance computers are parallel computers composed of traditional ultra high-speed computers and multiple CPU. However, generally speaking, HPC is almost equivalent to supercomputing, mainly for scientific computing,…

  • The Coming 5G Era Will Bring a New Round of Explosive Growth to Cloud Computing

    In recent years, telecom operators have been making efforts to set up cloud computing market, striving to build their own territory in the cloud field. However, with the continuous investment of Internet and traditional IT enterprises in cloud computing, the cloud computing market competition is further heating up. Facing the upcoming 5G era and the huge cloud computing market, how to position cloud computing has become the current focus of telecom operators. Telecom Operators Are Facing New Challenges With the rapid growth of cloud computing business and the development of data center market, the cloud computing industry has experienced vigorous growth in the past few years and the ecological system has been booming. In terms of market scale, the figure for China’s cloud computing market was closed 70 billion yuan in 2017, with an annual growth rate of 28%, and it is expected to top 680 billion yuan by 2020. As the participants who get involved in the cloud computing field early, the three China’s operators are facing more fierce market competition and service challenges. 5G Is Driving the Upgrade…
