A Boatload of HPC Events Coming Up


With all the HPC events coming around the corner, we thought it would be good to revisit our Spring preview to help ensure that our readers don’t miss out. We’ll be on the road for nearly a month straight, so be sure to check back here for exclusive onsite event coverage.

Featured White Paper: Submerged Servers in Your Data Center

submerged servers

Although many initially thought that liquid and servers should probably never mix – what if the server cooling is done in a completely controlled and secured environment? Liquid submersion cooling has the potential to revolutionize the design, construction, and energy consumption of data centers around the world.

Gordon Supercomputer Helps Guide New Drug Designs

Single amyloid-beta monomers can pair up to form a variety of dimers that can aggregate into larger peptide rings that reside on cell membranes such as those pictured. This process has been implicated in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Researchers at SDSC are using the flash-based Gordon supercomputer in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. By studying peptides using Gordon, the scientists have found new ways to elucidate the creation of the toxic oligomers associated with this devastating illness.

Could Apps be the Future of Informatics?


In this special feature from Scientific Computing World, Sean Ekins from Collaborative Drug Discovery explains to Robert Roe how science apps can be used for cheminformatics workflows. Delegates attending the SLAS2014 Conference in San Diego California from 18 to 22 January were able to download a conference app – available free from the iTunes store […]

Molex Rolls Out 25 Gbps Backplane Connector

Today Molex announced its new Impact 100-Ohm backplane connector, which combines speed and density in a modular package for high speed applications.

Zenovia Digital Exchange Speeds Transactions with Mellanox FDR

Today Mellanox announced that Zenovia Exchange, a real-time display media buying platform, selected Mellanox’s end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solutions to further improve transaction speed and bid decisioning for ad buyers.

HPC Wales Powers New International Renewable Research Project

HPC Wales is contributing to an international research project seeking to expand the lifetime of batteries powered by renewable energy.

PSNC in Poland Chills with Iceotope Cooling

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 […]

ExaScience Life Lab to Leverage HPC in Life Sciences

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.

Exascale Progress Meter – Are We Moving in the Right Direction?


In this special feature, Mike Bernhardt looks at our current progress towards Exascale computing, a future milestone of supercomputing 10^18 flops.
