“We received an overwhelmingly positive response to the new Moab features during SC14, so we¹re very excited to make the new features generally available. In a competitive computing landscape where enterprises need to accelerate insights, Moab matters,” said Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “Automating workload workflows is imperative to shorten the timeline to discovery, and this latest version of Moab represents a huge step forward in helping enterprises achieve that. We are excited to reveal our latest innovations and continue driving competitive advantage for our customers.”

As a reminder, the Stanford HPC Conference takes place next week, February 2-3, at Stanford, California. Hosted by the HPC Advisory Council, the conference will focus on High-Performance Computing (HPC) usage models and benefits, the future of supercomputing, latest technology developments, best practices and advanced HPC topics. In addition, there will be a strong focus on […]

Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Set for August, 2015

class

Argonne will host their 2015 ATPESC Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing for computational scientists. The event takes place August 2-14 in Chicago. “The program provides intensive hands-on training on the key skills, approaches and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current supercomputers and the HPC systems of the future. As a bridge to that future, this two-week program to be held at the Pheasant Run Resort in suburban Chicago fills many gaps that exist in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or shorter courses.”

More than 100 exascale experts will gather in Barcelona this week for the Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing (BDEC). Along with application leaders confronting diverse big data challenges, attendees will include members from industry, academia, and government, with expertise in algorithms, computer system architecture, operating systems, workflow middleware, compilers, libraries, languages and applications.

New Exascale Strategies Go Beyond HPC Market

Tom Wilkie, Scientific Computing World

“While HPC is being pulled in this direction by external market forces, it became clear at the US Supercomputing Conference, SC14, held this year in New Orleans in late November, that the technologies underpinning technical high-performance computing are now changing in response. Paradoxically, the announcement of the largest US Government investment in technical supercomputing for many years will transform business computing.”

CHPC Student Cluster Competition Winners on the Road to ISC

“Kruger National Park was the perfect setting for the conservation-themed meeting titled “Towards an Energy-Efficient HPC System,” but the environment proved to be extra challenging for the contest, with occasional power outages and a saturated Wi-Fi network. The playing field was level, however, and the conditions prepared the students to be persistent and to not take anything for granted–good lessons for life, in general! Eight teams with 32 competitors were selected in Sept. from among 84 applicants.”

Video: GPU-Accelerated Analysis of Large Biomolecular Complexes
