Iceotope, the environmental cooling specialist, has announced the installation of its liquid-cooled servers inside the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC) in Poland, a 3,200sq ft colocation facility offering shared HPC services to scientists, universities and researchers from around the world. The installation is part of the European PRACE Research Project (Partnership for Advanced Computing […]
One of the initial focuses of the new ExaScience Life Lab will be question of how supercomputers can accelerate the processing of entire genome sequences.
The Blue Waters petascale computing project at NCSA and the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) have signed a collaborative agreement, bringing together the National Science Foundation’s two largest cyberinfrastructure projects.
There is a strong and growing wave of interest (and not just from vendors) in cloud-based engineering simulation. I met with numerous end users, especially from smaller and mid-market companies, who desperately need a more cost-effective way to perform engineering work, in terms of both computation and software licensing.

Clive Longbottom contrasts the architectures of high-performance and high-availability clusters. And while users may request the best of both worlds, the end game often comes down to money.
A public database dubbed MERIL (Mapping of the European Research Infrastructure Landscape) has been launched with the aim of providing a comprehensive inventory of high quality research infrastructures in Europe across all scientific domains, and accessible through an interactive online portal.
