Today Cavium announced support for Nvidia Teslas GPUs in its ThunderX ARM processor family.
AMD powers the L-CSC cluster at the GSI research facility which achieved the number one position for most energy efficient supercomputers on the latest Green500™ List. The L-CSC cluster is installed at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH research facility in Darmstadt, Germany, and is powered by AMD FirePro™ S9150 server GPUs.
Clusters that are purchased for specific applications tend not to be flexible as workloads change. What is needed is an infrastructure that can expand or contract as the workload changes. IBM, a recognized leader in High Performance Computing is applying its expertise in both HPC and Cloud computing to bring together the technologies to create the HPC Cloud.
Simulation of physical processes such as the waves in an ocean or the wake behind a boat, although similar in a number of ways, require different approaches. With current systems designed with many parallel computational units, it is important to take advantage of the range of architectural features. Using HYDRO2D, the performance of the code can be examined and improved by taking advantage of a range of system features.
Demands by users that are running applications in the scientific, technical, financial or research areas can easily outstrip the capabilities of in-house clusters of servers. IT departments have to anticipate compute and storage needs for their most demanding users, which can lead to extra spending on both CAPEX and OPEX once the workload changes.
The term next generation sequencing (NGS) is really a misnomer. NGS implies a single methodology, but the fact is that over the past 10 to 15 years there have been multiple generations and the end is nowhere in sight. Technological advances in the field are continuing to emerge at a record setting pace.
