Slidecast: Introducing Nimbix – Supercomputing Made Superhuman

Slide1

Nimbix is a pure high performance computing (HPC) cloud built for volume, speed and simplicity. “We give people the tools and the processing power to solve their biggest, toughest problems. We give you the freedom to imagine new possibilities, to test the limits of reality, and to model the future. We keep you one step ahead of the compounding problems of processing speed and infrastructure costs. And best of all, we do it faster, better, and more economically. We give you instant access and simple interfaces. We give you options and control. It’s supercomputing made super human.”

Challenges on the Titan Supercomputer: Accelerating the Path to the Exascale

jack

“I will summarize the benefits, challenges, and lessons learned in deploying Titan and in preparing applications to move from conventional CPU architectures to a hybrid, accelerated architectures. I will emphasize on the challenges we have encountered with emerging programming models and how we are addressing these challenges using directive based-approaches. I also plan to discuss the early science outcomes from Titan in diverse areas such as materials sciences, nuclear energy, and engineering sciences. I will also discuss research outcomes from a growing number of industrial partnerships.”

Piz Daint and Piz Dora: Productive, Heterogeneous Supercomputing

thomas

“The Cray XC30 system at CSCS, which includes “Piz Daint”, the most energy efficient peta-scale supercomputer in operation today, has been extended with additional multi-core CPU cabinets (aka “Piz Dora”). In this heterogeneous system we unify a variety for high-end computing services – extreme scale compute, data analytics, pre- and post processing, as well as visualization – that are all important parts for the scientific workflow.”

Video: Accelerating ORNL’s Applications to the Exascale

bland

In this video from the Nvidia booth theater at SC14, Buddy Bland from Oak Ridge National Laboratory presents: Accelerating ORNL’s Applications to the Exascale. “The Titan computer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is delivering exceptional results for our scientific users in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science, Applied Energy programs, academia, and industry. Mr. Bland will describe the Titan system, how this system fits within the roadmap to exascale machines, and describe successes we have had with our applications using GPU accelerators.”

Mellanox: Paving the Road to Exascale
