“Despite what the name “EuroHack” may lead people to believe, no external systems were hacked during the EuroHack workshop in Lugano. In actual fact, the aim of the event was for experts to design computer codes that would exploit computer architectures more efficiently.”
“The AMD FirePro S9170 server GPU can accelerate complex workloads in scientific computing, data analytics, or seismic processing, wielding an industry-leading 32GB of memory. We designed the new offering for supercomputers to achieve massive compute performance while maximizing available power budgets.”
Dr. Eng Lim Goh from SGI discusses important trends in HPC including pending changes coming to processors/accelerators, memory hierarchy, and interconnects. “SGI, the trusted leader in high performance computing, is focused on helping customers solve their most demanding business and technology challenges by delivering technical computing, Big Data analytics, cloud computing, and petascale storage solutions that accelerate time to discovery, innovation, and profitability.”
Today One Stop Systems announced its High Density Compute Accelerator (HDCA) with AMD’s newly released S9170 GPUs. The 3U High Density Compute Accelerator (CA16003) provides up to 84 Tflops of peak single precision (SP), 42 Tflops of peak dual precision (DP) and 512GB of GPU memory using AMD FIREPRO S9170 GPU accelerators.
Today IBM along with Nvidia and two U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratories today announced a pair of Centers of Excellence for supercomputing – one at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the other at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The collaborations are in support of IBM’s supercomputing contract with the U.S. Department of Energy. They will enable advanced, large-scale scientific and engineering applications both for supporting DOE missions, and for the Summit and Sierra supercomputer systems to be delivered respectively to Oak Ridge and Lawrence Livermore in 2017 and to be operational in 2018.
