Video: PSC's Sherlock Supercomputer Means Business for Graph Computing

In this video, Dr. Nick Nystrom from PSC discusses what makes the Sherlock supercomputer unique and how businesses can take advantage of its graph computing prowess. Sherlock is a YarcData uRiKA (Universal RDF Integration Knowledge Appliance) data appliance with PSC enhancements. It enables large-scale, rapid graph analytics through massive multithreading, a shared address space, sophisticated […]

Live Video: PSC Sherlock Supercomputer Launch Event

Ed. Note: The launch event starts at the 28:22 minute mark. The Pittsburg Supercomputer Center is streaming live video from their launch event for their new Sherlock supercomputer. A uRiKA graph-analytics appliance from YarcData, Sherlock is designed to discover unknown relationships or patterns hidden in extremely large and complex bodies of information. Sherlock gives PSC […]

Earthquake Prediction Using the Blue Waters Supercomputer

In this video, U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz announces two new High Performance Computing awards to put the nation on a fast-track to next generation exascale computing, which will help to advance U.S. leadership in scientific research and promote America’s economic and national security.

Using the Titan Supercomputer to find Alternatives to Rare Earth Magnets

Simulations could uncover competitive substitutes for these super strong magnets

Over at ORNL, Katie Elyce Jones writes that the US Department of Energy (DOE) is mining for alternatives to rare earth magnetic material, an obviously scarce resource. For manufacturers of electric motors and other devices, procuring these materials involves environmental concerns from mining rare earth metals, their costs, and an unpredictable supply chain.

Yet Another Mountain: CSCS Readies Piz Dora Cray XC Supercomputer

Piz Dora, the extension of Cray XC system at CSCS

“This is an addition to our existing Cray XC platform, which we have called Piz Dora,” says CSCS media spokesperson Angela Detjen. Piz Dora has a maximum capability of 1.258 petaflops – a petaflop is the equivalent of 1,000,000,000,000,000 (a quadrillion) calculations per second.”

Cray XC40 system “Hornet” of HLRS (High Performance Computing Center, Stuttgart/Germany), Peak Performance: 3.8 PetaFlops

Today the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) announced on 13 November 2014 that its member centre High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) successfully completed the installation of HPC system “Hornet”. The new HLRS supercomputer, a CRAY XC40 system which delivers a peak performance of 3.8 PetaFlops, has been declared fully operational and will be available […]

Introducing the SGI UV 300 Big Memory Supercomputer

brian

“SGI has been delivering scaleable shared memory systems for over 2 decades. The 7th generation SGI NUMAlink7 technology is being delivered in the SGI UV 300, launched at SC14. A single UV 300 chassis (5U) provides 4 Xeon E7 processors, up to 96 DIMMs, and 12 PCIe slots. Connecting 8 of these units together in a single rack, using NUMAlink7 interconnect, then creates a huge pool of resources, up to 480 cores, 24TB DRAM, which can be extended with additional PCIe devices for highest performance FLASH in the industry, as well as compute acceleration with Intel Xeon Phi and visualization capabilities – all in a single system!”

Video: Introducing the SGI ICE XA Supercomputer

mark

“The ICE X is in production now. It is a compute-focused platform. At this show, we’re introducing the ICE XA. It adds several degrees of flexibility. With the ICE XA, we’ll still maintain the compute-only-density that we have in our ICE. But we have another blade available for that, which will enable accelerators, both GPU and Xeon Phi cards. We have an even third blade, will allow people to add hard drives and other IO devices. So, the flexibility of the ICE XA is what we’re talking about today at the show.”
