Asetek Lands Nine Installations on the Green500

“As seen at installations included on both the Green500 and Top500 lists, Asetek’s distributed liquid cooling architecture enables cluster energy efficiency in addition to sustained and un-throttled cluster performance,” said John Hamill, Vice President of WW Sales and Marketing. “Around the world, data centers are increasingly using Asetek technology for High Performance Computing while reducing energy costs.”

Huawei Showcases HPC Solutions at SC16

“Huawei has increasingly become more prominent in the HPC market. It has successfully deployed HPC clusters for a large number of global vehicle producers, large-scale supercomputing centers, and research institutions. These show that Huawei’s HPC platforms are optimized for industry applications which can help customers significantly simplify service processes and improve work efficiency, enabling them to focus on product development and research.”

SGI Paves the Way to the Future with HPE at SC16

In this video from SC16, Gabriel Broner from SGI describes the company’s full breadth of HPC solutions. Recently acquired by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, SGI’s product technologies such as the SGI ICE XA system and SGI UV big memory systems will continue to offer unique value for HPC customers on the road to Exascale. “Will this be a good marriage? Well, this reporter got to spend some time with HPE, SGI, and their joint customers at the recent HP-CAST user group meeting, and all indications are that this combination will be a powerful force in HPC moving forward.”

13.7 Petaflop MareNostrum 4 Supercomputer Coming to BSC

Today the Barcelona Supercomputing Center announced plans to MareNostrum 4, a 13.7 Petaflop supercomputer that will be 12.4 times more powerful than the current MareNostrum 3 system. In a contract valued at almost €30 million, IBM will integrate in one sole machine using its own technologies alongside those of Lenovo, Intel, and Fujitsu.

SGI and DDN Power UK Met Office SPICE System for Weather and Climate Research

SGI, Bright Computing, and DDN recently announced that the UK Met Office has selected the three HPC vendors to provide HPC for its new Scientific Processing and Intensive Compute Environment (SPICE) system. SPICE will enable weather and climate researchers to dramatically reduce time required to analyze massive amounts of climate simulation data.

Simplify Cluster Deployment with Intel HPC Orchestrator

“Intel HPC Orchestrator simplifies the installation, management, and ongoing maintenance of an HPC system by reducing the amounft of integration and validation effort required to run an HPC system software stack. With Intel HPC Orchestrator, based on the OpenHPC system software stack, you can take advantage of the innovation driven by the open source community – while also getting peace of mind from Intel® support across the HPC system software stack.”

Nvidia’s Bill Dally to Keynote HiPINEB 2017 Exascale Workshop

Nvidia’s Bill Dally will keynote HiPINEB 2017 – the 3rd IEEE International Workshop on High-Performance Interconnection Networks in the Exascale and Big-Data Era. The event takes place Feb. 5, 2017 in Austin, Texas and will be held in conjunction with the IEEE HPCA Conference.

CoolIT Systems and STULZ Debut High Density Chip-to-Atmosphere Data Center Liquid Cooling

In this video, CoolIT Systems CEO & CTO, Geoff Lyon, and STULZ ATS President, Joerg Desler, discuss high density Chip-to-Atmosphere™ data center liquid cooling solutions for organizations big or small. When integrated, CoolIT Systems’ DCLC™ solutions can capture 85% and more of the servers’ heat directly into liquid. Complimenting DCLC™, STULZ precision air cooling products capture the balance of the lower density heat. A considerable benefit forms when the total heat energy from both systems is consolidated, transported outside and then dissipated or recaptured for reuse, to heat nearby buildings, for example.

Sugon Moves HPC as a Service to Europe with Arctur-2 Supercomputer

As announced at SC16, Chinese HPC vendor Sugon has built a new datacenter in Slovenia based around the Arctur-2 system, Sugon’s first installation in continental Europe and a major milestone in the company’s globalization strategy. “Arctur-2 is Sugon’s flagship hyperconverged HPC & Cloud computing infrastructure. According to Sugon, the system was designed and built to fit various and diverse usage scenarios, from general use Cloud Computing to HPC computing as well as Big Data analytics. By converging different types of servers into single entity we achieved high performance, energy efficiency and seamless management, Sugon is able to provide an HPC on demand to its customers.”
