This is the 4th installment of a 6 article series on the trends and technologies impacting the application of HPC in Life Sciences. Here we explore how companies like SGI and Intel address computational and storage problems inherent in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) applications.
We are sad to report that Bill Blake passed away on March 31 after suffering from a heart attack. While many of you will remember Bill from his work as CTO of Cray, Mr. Blake was most recently head of R&D at D-Wave Systems.
The Convey Computer site reports that the company has been acquired by Micron. This is not an April Fools, guys. There just may be a hybrid-core server with an Automata processor available soon from a vendor near you.
Industry PerspectivesEPFL launches Denab: a scalable HPC architecture for researchers and students. "Working with ClusterVision and Intel has proved to be a wise and productive decision for EPFL as we continue to grow our computational capabilities to support our many researchers and students."

"As we see Moore’s Law alive and well, more and more parallelism is introduced into all computing platforms and on all levels of integration and programming to achieve higher performance and energy efficiency. We will discuss Multi- and Many-Core solutions for highly parallel workloads with general purpose and energy efficient technologies. We will also touch on the challenges and opportunities for parallel programming models, methodologies and software tools to achieve highly efficient and highly productive parallel applications. At the end we will take a brief look towards Exascale computing." [Read More...]
