In this video from SC13, Rich Whitmore from Motivair describes the company’s active cooling door system that can be fitted to the rear of any new or existing server rack. In-row rack coolers with containment systems require increased use of valuable data center floor space, increased energy consumption, and a rigid architecture system that is not conducive to rapid changes. The Motivair Chilled Door system is designed to overcome these issues by providing effective cooling of individual racks, regardless of the server heat load at any given time.
In this video from SC13, Arnon Friedman from Texas Instruments describes how TI multicore DSP processors rule the roost for HPC computing at under 10 Watts. As an example of what’s possible, the company showcased the BrownDwarf DSP + ARM Supercomputer from nCore in the first public demonstration of an ARM Cortex-A15+Accelerator (DSP) high performance system.
Display Manager is a web-based environment for remote visualization of very Big Data arising from large HPC simulations. “Display Manager eliminates the need for massive data movement across networks by leveraging NVIDIA GRID GPU’s for server side remote visualization. This represents a major milestone in the path toward complete simulation lifecycle management.” Watch the demo to see it in action.
Today the HPC Advisory Council announced that 11 university teams from around the world will compete in the HPCAC-ISC 2013 Student Cluster Competition.
As science drives a rapidly growing need for storage, existing environments face increasing pressure to expand capabilities while controlling costs. Many researchers, scientists and engineers find that they are outgrowing their current system, but fear their organizations may be too small to cover the cost and support needed for more storage. Join these experts for a lively discussion on how you can take control and solve the HPC data deluge.
