Video: HPC in the Cloud

“Nimbis was founded in 2008 by HPC industry veterans Robert Graybill and Brian Schott to act as the first nationwide brokerage clearinghouse for a broad spectrum of integrated cloud-based HPC platforms and applications. Our fully integrated online Technical Computing Marketplace comprises several stores hosting modeling and simulation applications on HPC platforms in the cloud.”

Dell & EMC in HPC – The Journey so far and the Road Ahead

Ed Turkel and Percy Tzelnic from Dell Technologies presented this pair of talks at the HPC User Forum in Austin. “This week, Dell Technologies announced completion of the acquisition of EMC Corporation, creating a unique family of businesses that provides the essential infrastructure for organizations to build their digital future, transform IT and protect their most important asset, information. This combination creates a $74 billion market leader with an expansive technology portfolio.”

Video: The ECP Exascale Computing Project

Paul Messina presented this talk at the HPC User Forum in Austin. “The Exascale Computing Project (ECP) is a collaborative effort of the Office of Science (DOE-SC) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). As part of President Obama’s National Strategic Computing initiative, ECP was established to develop a new class of high-performance computing systems whose power will be a thousand times more powerful than today’s petaflop machines.”

Video: IDC HPC Market Update

Earl Joseph presented this talk at the HPC User Forum in Austin. “HPC is still expected to be a strong growth market going forward. IDC is forecasting a 7.7 percent growth from 2015 to 2019. We’re projecting the 2019 HPC Market will exceed $15 Billion.”

Call for Research Papers: ISC 2017

Submissions are now open for the ISC 2017 conference Research Paper Sessions, which aim to provide first-class opportunities for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to present research that will shape the future of high performance computing. Submissions will be accepted through December 2, 2016.

The Challenges and Rewards of Stockpile Stewardship

Charles W. Nakhleh from LANL presented this talk at the 2016 DOE NNSA SSGF Annual Program Review. “This talk will explore some of the future opportunities and exciting scientific and technological challenges in the National Nuclear Security Administration Stockpile Stewardship Program. The program’s objective is to ensure that the nation’s nuclear deterrent remains safe, secure and effective. Meeting that objective requires sustained excellence in a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines and has led to remarkable advances in theory, experiment and simulation.”

Video: User Managed Virtual Clusters in Comet

Rick Wagner from SDSC presented this talk at the the 4th Annual MVAPICH User Group. “At SDSC, we have created a novel framework and infrastructure by providing virtual HPC clusters to projects using the NSF sponsored Comet supercomputer. Managing virtual clusters on Comet is similar to managing a bare-metal cluster in terms of processes and tools that are employed. This is beneficial because such processes and tools are familiar to cluster administrators.”

Radio Free HPC Previews the HPC User Forum & StartupHPC Events

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team previews the HPC User Forum & StartupHPC Events coming up in the Fall of 2016.

Video: JuMP – A Modeling Language for Mathematical Optimization

Miles Lubin from presented this talk at the CSGF Annual Program Review. “JuMP is an open-source software package in Julia for modeling optimization problems. In less than three years since its release, JuMP has received more than 50 citations and has been used in at least 10 universities for teaching. We tell the story of how JuMP was developed, explain the role of the DOE CSGF and high-performance computing, and discuss ongoing extensions to JuMP developed in collaboration with DOE labs.”

Video: SIMD, Vectorization, and Performance Tuning

James Reinders presented this talk at the 2016 Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing. Reinders is the author of multiple books on parallel programming. His most recent book, entitled Intel Xeon Phi Processor High Performance Programming: Knights Landing Edition 2nd Edition, was co-authored by James Jeffers and Avinash Sodani.
