“At IDF, Intel introduced Intel Optane technology, which is based on the revolutionary 3D XPoint non-volatile memory media and combined with the company’s advanced system memory controller, interface hardware and software IP, to unleash vast performance potential in a range of forthcoming products. Intel Optane technology will first come to market in a new line of high-endurance, high-performance Intel SSDs beginning in 2016. The new class of memory technology will also power a new line of Intel DIMMs designed for Intel’s next-generation data center platforms.”
In this video from the AIAA Aviation Conference 2015, panelists discuss Supercomputing: Roadmap and its Future Role in Aerospace Engineering. “Supercomputing has made significant contributions in aerospace engineering in recent decades, including advances in computational fluid dynamics that has fundamentally altered the way aircraft are designed. And the relentless growth in high-performance computing power holds promise of huge leaps in engine performance and other aerospace technology.”
Today Cray announced that the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) has purchased a Cray XC supercomputer and a Cray Sonexion 2000 storage system. Through an arrangement with the Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO), the system will be installed at the IMO datacenter in Reykjavik, Iceland for year-round power and cooling efficiency.
After a long absence, Rambus is back in the news with their announcement of the RB26 DDR4 server memory chipset. Developed in cooperation with Intel, the RB26 is an enhanced, JEDEC-compliant memory module chipset designed to accelerate data-intensive applications, including real-time analytics, virtualization and in-memory computing, with increased speed, reliability and power-efficiency.
“Space Debris are defunct objects in space, including old space vehicles (such as satellites or rocket stages) or fragments from collisions. Space debris can cause great damage to functional space ships and satellites. Thus detection of space debris and prediction of their orbital paths are essential for today’s operation of space missions. The talk shows the Python-based infrastructures BACARDI for gathering and storing space debris data from sensors and Skynet for high-throughput data processing and orbital collision detection.”
