Memory-Driven Near-Data Acceleration and its Application to DOME/SKA


In this video from the 2014 HPC User Forum in Seattle, Jan van Lunteren from IBM Research Labs in Zurich presents: Memory-Driven Near-Data Acceleration.

Podcast: The Return of the Intel Parallel Universe Computing Challenge

chip chat

In this Chip Chat podcast, Mike Bernhardt, Community Evangelist for HPC and Technical Computing at Intel, discusses the importance of code modernization as we move into multi- and many-core systems in the HPC field. According Bernhardt, markets as diverse as oil and gas, financial services, and health and life sciences can see a dramatic performance improvement in their code through parallelization.

Chris Willard Presents: HPC Software in 2014

Chris Willard, Intersect360 Research

Chris Willard from Intersect360 Research presented this talk at the 2014 HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference. “This presentation presents results from our most recent end user research. It focuses on middleware and applications software use in HPC environments with emphasis on differences between segments, including: open vs. ISV suppliers, industrial vs public sectors, variations between vertical markets, and high performance business vs technical computing.”

Video: Panasas HPC Storage — Simplicity and Performance


In this video from the HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference, Jose Carreira from Panasas presents: Panasas HPC Storage — Simplicity and Performance. “NAS products for technical enterprise and research environments must deliver fast time to results and efficiently and linearly scale to extremely high levels of aggregate performance. While performance is critical, performance that comes at the expense of manageability can hamper workflows and impact productivity.”

Video: Scalable HPC Communication Capabilities

Rich Graham

“Exascale levels of computing pose many system- and application-level computational challenges. Mellanox as a provider of end-to-end communication services is progressing the foundation of the InfiniBand architecture to meet the exascale challenges. This presentation will focus on recent technology improvements which significantly improve InfiniBand’s scalability, performance, and ease of use.”

Genomes to Structures to Function: The Role of HPC

Jack Collins

In this video from the 2014 HPC User Forum in Seattle, Jack Collins from the National Cancer Institute presents: Genomes to Structures to Function: The Role of HPC. “Dr. Collins is the director of the Advanced Biomedical Computing Center at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research. Dr. Collins’ research focuses on biomedical computing applications pertaining to cancer. His research group develops and applies high-performance algorithms to solve data-intensive computational biology problems in the areas of genomic analysis, pattern recognition in proteomics and imaging, molecular modeling, and systems biology.”

Where in the World is the Man in the Red Hat?


With all the High Performance Computing events piling up this Fall, it really is Octoberfest for us at insideHPC. In fact, the man in the Red Hat will be on the road for two weeks covering four HPC conferences over the course of two weeks. And now with the GoPro Traveling widget, you can follow along.

Advancing Science in Alternative Energy & Bioengineering with Many-Core Processors


“We believe that the Intel path forward for HPC architecture and software offers a solution that allows for a simpler code base and reduced software effort. Optimizations for GPUs do not necessarily improve performance on CPUs.”

Video: Lustre Releases Update from LAD’14


The Lustre file system is a open source, parallel file system that supports the requirements of leadership class HPC and Enterprise environments worldwide. Lustre provides a POSIX compliant interface and scales to thousands of clients, petabytes of storage, and has demonstrated over a terabyte per second of sustained I/O bandwidth. Many of the largest and most powerful supercomputers on Earth today are powered by the Lustre file system, including over 60% of the TOP100 sites.
