In this slidecast from Radio Free HPC, Fritz Ferstl from Univa leads a discussion on the continuing HPC Datacenter Evolution.
Researchers are using the GPU-powered Titan supercomputer to study a key molecular switch that controls cell behavior. Scientists want to manipulate cell behavior for a lot of reasons. If they can control cell functions such as movement and development, they can cripple cells and pathogens that are causing disease in the body.
“This partnership will bring supercomputer performance to the corporate data center, expanding the use of GPU accelerators well beyond the traditional supercomputing and technical computing markets,” said Ian Buck, vice president of Accelerated Computing at Nvidia. “It will also provide existing supercomputing and high performance computing customers with new choices and technologies to build powerful, energy-efficient systems that drive innovation and scientific discovery.”
This week at SC13, SuperMicro is showcasing its latest HPC solutions powered by the Nvidia Tesla K40 GPU accelerator.
This week TACC announced that they will deploy Maverick in January 2014, a unique, powerful, high performance visualization and data analytics resource.
