Ansys, a provider of engineering simulation technology, has announced the release of its SeaScape architecture to help engineers accelerate the optimization of designs using a combination of elastic computation, machine learning, big data analytics and simulation technology.
In this video, Moshe Rappoport of the IBM Research THINK Lab – Zurich, takes into the world of quantum computing. He explains why the recent steps that scientists made this field are very likely just the beginning of yet another quantum leap in the history of computing. “The IBM Quantum Experience is a virtual lab where you can design and run your own algorithms through the cloud on real quantum processors located in the IBM Quantum Lab at the Thomas J Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York.”
Today AMD announced the Multiuser GPU (MxGPU) for blade servers, a new graphics virtualization solution that provides workstation-class experience. Now available HPE ProLiant WS460c Gen9 blade servers, the AMD FirePro S7100X GPU is the industry’s first and only hardware-virtualized GPU that is compliant with the SR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualization) PCIe virtualization standard. The AMD FirePro S7100X GPU is […]
Today Bright Computing announced that Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning (SSSIHL) in India has chosen Bright infrastructure management technology to manage its HPC environment. This heterogeneous and hybrid cluster at SSSIHL is the first step towards achieving a self-sufficient HPC facility for the Institute’s research work, and we are pleased that Bright is […]
Today CoolIT Systems announced a commercial partnership with STULZ USA. Under the agreement, the two companies will cooperate closely in delivering unique Chip-to-Atmosphere solutions across the globe.
The Dell HPC Community will hold their user group meeting on Monday, June 20 at the Movenpick Hotel in Frankfurt. Held in conjunction with ISC 2016, the Dell HPC Community event will feature keynote presentations by HPC experts and a networking breakfast to discuss best practices in the use of Dell HPC Systems.
“We took the Aries system interconnect from our supercomputers, the industry-standard architecture of our clusters, the scalable graph engine from the Urika-GD appliance, and the pre-integrated, open infrastructure of our Urika-XA system and combined them into one agile analytics platform. The Urika-GX gives our customers the tool they need to overcome their most advanced analytics challenges today, and the platform to bridge to tomorrow.”
“The promising new parameter in place of the transistor count is the perceived increase in the capacity and bandwidth of storage, driven by device, architectural, as well as packaging innovations: DRAM-alternative Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) devices, 3-D memory and logic stacking evolving from VIAs to direct silicone stacking, as well as next-generation terabit optics and networks. The overall effect of this is that, the trend to increase the computational intensity as advocated today will no longer result in performance increase, but rather, exploiting the memory and bandwidth capacities will instead be the right methodology.”
Today AMD, ARM, Huawei, IBM, Mellanox, Qualcomm, and Xilinx announced a collaboration to bring the CCIX high-performance open acceleration framework to data centers. The companies are collaborating on the specification for the new Cache Coherent Interconnect for Accelerators (CCIX). For the first time in the industry, a single interconnect technology specification will ensure that processors using different instruction set architectures (ISA) can coherently share data with accelerators and enable efficient heterogeneous computing – significantly improving compute efficiency for servers running data center workloads.
In this video from ASC16, students compete in the final round of the Asia Student Cluster Challenge. “Some 175 teams from universities in North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Europe and Oceania participated in ASC16. Of these, 16 advanced to the final round held last week at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, China. Armed with their custom-built systems, finalists competed on six different supercomputing application benchmarks within a 3,000W system power limit.”
