Interview: Terascala and High Performance Data Movement

0623-Mover-butler

“Terascala’s intelligent operating system, TeraOS, simplifies managing Lustre®-based storage and optimizes workflows, providing the high throughput storage HPC users need to solve bigger problems faster. For the HPC folks, this means that Terascala-powered storage appliances can reduce run times to hours instead of days or weeks.”

Interview: NSU to Boost Research with “Megalodon” IBM Supercomputer

ibm_guys

“The team at the Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences wanted to give the computer a nickname – a name that would not only convey the super computer’s enormity in terms of size; but a name that would definitively link the super computer to NSU. Our mascot is the “shark” and the Megalodon, is the largest prehistoric shark known to man.”

Interview: Argonne Announces Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing

Paul Messina, Director of Science at Argonne

“Systems like Argonne’s Mira, an IBM Blue Gene/Q system with nearly a million cores, can enable breakthroughs in science, but to use them productively requires expertise in computer architectures, parallel programming, mathematical software, data management and analysis, performance analysis tools, software engineering, and so on. Our training program exposes the participants to all those topics and provides hands-on exercises for experimenting with most of them.”
