We should all be thankful for the Perennials that keep coming back, year after year. That’s the sentiment over at the SC15 Blog, which pays tribute to 18 hearty souls that have attended all 27 of the Supercomputing conferences since they began in 1988.
“As a result of a new alliance with Intel, HP is offering its HPC Solutions Framework based on HP Apollo servers, which are specialized for HPC and now optimized to support industry- specific software applications from leading independent software vendors. These solutions will dramatically simplify the deployment of HPC for customers in industries such as oil and gas, life sciences and financial services. The HP Apollo product line integrates Intel’s technology innovation from its HPC scalable system framework, which helps to extend the resilience, reliability, power efficiency and price/performance of the HP Apollo solutions.”
In this video from the Velocity 2015 conference, Brendan Gregg from Netflix presents a 90 minute tutorial on Linux performance tools. “There are many performance tools nowadays for Linux, but how do they all fit together, and when do we use them? I’ve spoken on this topic before, but given a 90 minute time slot I was able to include more methodologies, tools, and live demonstrations, making it the most complete tour of the topic I’ve done.”
In this video from ISC 2015, Ross C. Walker from SDSC presents: Amber – The How, What, and Why on Intel Xeon Phi.
AMBER is a key application in molecular dynamics used to simulate biocatalysis and the interaction between drug candidates and protein receptors. A feature of AMBER is the ability to use Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors to speed up complex molecular simulations and improves research accuracy.”
“By introducing Cavium’s 64-bit ARMv8 CPUs in our Penguin Tundra family of Open Compute servers we again step up our leadership position. Our customers get outstanding value from the efficiency and flexibility enabled by OCP infrastructure combined with workload-optimized performance of Cavium’s ThunderX architecture.”
