Today Eurotech announced the installation of the DEEP “Booster”, a tightly coupled cluster of manycore coprocessors, at Jülich Supercomputing Centre.
DDN CEO Alex Bouzari presented this talk at ISC 2015. “For over 15 years, DDN has relentlessly focused on delivering innovation to enable HPC globally. As the reigning HPC Storage Leader, DDN is once again the storage solution trusted by 2/3 of the Top500 supercomputing sites. Whether you need to accelerate your data-intensive applications and workflow or scale in performance and capacity for your requirements, DataDirect Networks (DDN) can help you unlock the value of your data by delivering systems with the highest performance, scalability, efficiency and simplicity.”
In this special guest feature, John Kirkley writes that Intel is using its new Omni-Path Architecture as a foundation for supercomputing systems that will scale to 200 Petaflops and beyond. “With its ability to scale to tens and eventually hundreds of thousands of nodes, the Intel Omni-Path Architecture is designed for tomorrow’s HPC workloads. The platform has its sights set squarely on Exascale performance while supporting more modest, but still demanding, future HPC implementations.”
ISC 2015 will host a number of sessions on Exascale computing next month in Frankfurt. In what looks to be one of the highlights of the conference, Bill Gropp, Georg Hager, and Paul Kelly will discuss Programming Models on the Road to Exascale. To learn more, we caught up with the Session Chair, Dr Michèle Weiland, who serves as a Project Manager at the EPCC supercomputing center at the University of Edinburgh.
“The strengths and the limitations of Europe’s supercomputing strategy were laid out at the PRACEDdays15 conference in Dublin at the end of May, with the minds of many delegates concentrated by the announcement in the USA over the course of the past few months of the $425 million ‘Coral’ procurement, intended to develop supercomputers that will leapfrog the international competition and open up the way to an Exascale machine.”
