In this video from PASC15, Torsten Hoefler from ETH Zurich discusses HPC trends with Satoshi Matsuoka from the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Along the way, Matsuoka describes lessons learned during this multi-disciplinary conference about application requirements on the road to exascale.
Today GE announced a multi-year joint development agreement with Cascade Technologies to improve combustion simulation software. With new visualaztion capabilities, engineers can virtually look inside a gas turbine as it operates and gain a better understanding of the turbulent fluid, chemical and acoustic processes occurring within advanced, low-emissions gas-turbine combustion systems.
“The industry needs to accomplish a lot in the coming years to deliver a working, useful exascale machine. PBS Pro is only one piece of the puzzle… but it’s an important piece. Job scheduling and workload management are core capabilities – a “must have” for every HPC system – ensuring HPC goals are met by enforcing site-specific use policies, enabling users to focus on science and engineering rather than IT, and optimizing utilization (of hardware, licenses, and power) to minimize waste.”
With the launch of Univa Small Jobs add-on for Univa Grid Engine, the company, the company offers “the world’s most efficient processing and lowest latency available for important tasks like real-time trading, transactions, and other critical applications.” To learn more, we caught up with Univa President & CEO Gary Tyreman.
While not every industry is making the move to the Cloud at quite the same rate, the high performance side of the Financial Services industry seems to be ahead of the curve. This year, the ISC 2015 conference will feature a session on HPC & Cloud Computing in Financial Services. To learn more about the latest trends in this area, we caught up with Prof. Juho Kanniainen from Tampere University of Technology and Tuomas Eerola from Techila Technologies.
