High-performance computing (HPC) tries to optimize and balance out each aspect of computations to achieve the best possible performance. It involves not only faster hardware but also selecting the correct algorithm that inherits better data structures that can be easily mapped to the memory hierarchy and the network topology of the underlying hardware. An HPC cluster usually consists of many compute elements that work together to complete one or more tasks. This is called Parallel computing. By working collectively, HPC clusters can achieve quadrillions of calculations per second where as your personnel computer operating at 3GHz can perform around 3 billion calculations per second.
Using an Interactive Web Interface (IWI) users can easily develop and debug algorithms on advanced cyber infrastructure (ACI) provided by ARCTIC. IWI provides an easy transition from a personnel computer to centrally managed complex ACI by providing an array of software, including MATLAB, R, Python, SAS, STATA, etc. through a web interface. IWI’s hands-on, uniform learning environment enables interactive, engaging live instruction sessions.
With the recent explosion of data availability and availability of high-performance balanced computing, networking and storage infrastructure provide huge potential for researchers to apply complex estimation and machine-learning approaches to dissect large numbers of outcomes and enormous numbers of observations. Procedural and documentation obligations raise high barriers to conducting this type of research and providing timely answers to critical questions. Proper data management is essential in maintaining highly secure environments, under strict, well-documented procedures that are consistent with many regulations and security standards to maintain subjects’ confidentiality. ARCTIC provides a complete data management solution based on iRODS data management platform.
