A new study by Henry Coles of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has validated the energy-savings potential of Asetek RackCDU liquid cooling technology.
Four of the six finalists for this year’s Gordon Bell Prize conducted their research on the Titan supercomputer.
Our friends at The Exascale Report will honor the recipient of the inaugural HPC Vanguard Award at SC13 in Denver, recognizing a critical leader in the HPC community’s strategic push to achieve exascale levels of supercomputing performance.
Researchers are using supercomputers at to detect previously unknown channels of slow-moving seismic waves in Earth’s upper mantle. This discovery helps to explain how “hotspot volcanoes”—the kind that give birth to island chains like Hawaii and Tahiti—come to exist.
Today Mellanox announced that it is the first certified End-To-End interconnect vendor for OpenStack. Leveraging Mellanox 10/40GbE or FDR 56Gb/s adapters and switches and the OpenStack Cinder block storage and Neutron plug-ins, cloud vendors can significantly improve storage access performance and run virtual machine traffic with bare-metal performance, while enjoying hardened security and QoS; all delivered in a simple and tightly integrated package.
In a surprise move this week, Altera announced that Intel will manufacture Altera’s ARM-based SoCs using Intel’s 14 nm tri-gate transistor technology.
This video presents an uplifting overview of HPC and how it is being used to tackle the toughest challenges facing society. Almost all of the major challenges that society faces, whether it’s preserving our environment, improving our healthcare, or rebuilding our economy, are underpinned in some way or another by high performance computing.
Intel has set up a “Research Center for Many-core High-Performance Computing” at the ZIB institute in Berlin.
A new report shows that the American research community is already experiencing extreme setbacks as a result of sequestration. Produced by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology along with 15 other science organizations, the report is based on a nationwide, online survey designed to measure the effects of the faltering federal investment on scientists and the research they are trying to conduct.
