“As we see Moore’s Law alive and well, more and more parallelism is introduced into all computing platforms and on all levels of integration and programming to achieve higher performance and energy efficiency. We will discuss Multi- and Many-Core solutions for highly parallel workloads with general purpose and energy efficient technologies. We will also touch on the challenges and opportunities for parallel programming models, methodologies and software tools to achieve highly efficient and highly productive parallel applications. At the end we will a brief look towards Exascale computing.”
Today Lenovo announced the opening of the company’s first global HPC innovation center, offering a permanent R&D and application benchmarking site as well as a new ecosystem of partners that will collaborate on projects to bring the commercial benefits of HPC to a broader spectrum of clients and workloads.
The Open Compute Project, initiated by Facebook as a way to increase computing power while lowering associated costs with hyper-scale computing, has gained a significant industry following. This guide to Open Computing is design to help organizations optimize their HPC environment to achieve higher performance at a lower operating cost.
“The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) offers a range of computing and storage services to Swiss and international research communities. These services are provisioned by an array of solutions including leading edge Cray XC40 and hybrid XC30 systems, commodity clusters, files systems such as Lustre and site-wide GPFS storage as well as centre-wide Ethernet and InfiniBand networks.”
