XDMoD Tool to Measure Impact of Campus Cyberinfrastructure

Thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation, Indiana University is developing an online service that will make it easier for university administrators to understand the importance of funding related to IT systems based at their institutions. The novel functionality will be available as a module for Open XDMoD (XD Metrics on Demand), which was developed by the University at Buffalo Center for Computational Research (CCR).

Video: Whither Hard Disk Archives?

In this video from the 2016 MSST Conference, Dave Anderson from Seagate presents: Whither Hard Disk Archives? The talk was part of a panel discussion on Data-intensive Workflows.

Teratec Forum to Spotlight HPC and IoT

The TERATEC Forum 2016 will host a June 29 workshop on HPC, Connected Objects, and IoT Infrastructures. The full event takes place June 28-29 in Palaiseau, France. “Many innovations and new generation systems are based on connected things equipped with massive instrumentation and integrated within Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) infrastructure. This workshop will be focused on new HPC software and infrastructure technologies integrated within these future global smart systems.”

Weather Prediction and the Scalability Challenge

“Weather prediction using high performance computing relies on having physically based models of the atmosphere that can deliver forecasts well in advance of the weather actually happening. ECMWF has embarked on a scalability program together with the NWP and climate modeling community in Europe. The talk will give an overview of the principles underlying numerical weather prediction as well as a description of the HPC related challenges that are facing the NWP and climate modeling communities today.”

Ansys SeaHawk Brings Big Data Analytics to EDA

Ansys, a provider of engineering simulation technology, has announced the release of its SeaScape architecture to help engineers accelerate the optimization of designs using a combination of elastic computation, machine learning, big data analytics and simulation technology.

Video: Why Quantum Computing Matters

In this video, Moshe Rappoport of the IBM Research THINK Lab – Zurich, takes into the world of quantum computing. He explains why the recent steps that scientists made this field are very likely just the beginning of yet another quantum leap in the history of computing. “The IBM Quantum Experience is a virtual lab where you can design and run your own algorithms through the cloud on real quantum processors located in the IBM Quantum Lab at the Thomas J Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York.”

AMD FirePro S7100X Hardware-Virtualized GPU Comes to HPE Blade Servers

Today AMD announced the Multiuser GPU (MxGPU) for blade servers, a new graphics virtualization solution that provides workstation-class experience. Now available HPE ProLiant WS460c Gen9 blade servers, the AMD FirePro S7100X GPU is the industry’s first and only hardware-virtualized GPU that is compliant with the SR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualization) PCIe virtualization standard. The AMD FirePro S7100X GPU is […]

Sri Sathya Sai Institute in India Chooses Bright Technology

Today Bright Computing announced that Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning (SSSIHL) in India has chosen Bright infrastructure management technology to manage its HPC environment. This heterogeneous and hybrid cluster at SSSIHL is the first step towards achieving a self-sufficient HPC facility for the Institute’s research work, and we are pleased that Bright is […]

Disruptive Opportunities and a Path to Exascale: A Conversation with HPC Visionary Alan Gara of Intel

“We want to encourage and support that collaborative behavior in whatever way we can, because there are a multitude of problems in government agencies and commercial entities that seem to have high performance computing solutions. Think of bringing together the tremendous computational expertise you find from the DOE labs with the problems that someone like the National Institutes of Health is trying to solve. You couple those two together and you really can create something amazing that will affect all our lives. We want to broaden their exposure to the possibilities of HPC and help that along. It’s important, and it will allow all of us in HPC to more broadly impact the world with the large systems as well as the more moderate-scale systems.”

Symbolic IO Emerges from Stealth with First Computational-Defined Storage Solution

Today Symbolic IO emerged from stealth mode with a suite of products destined to change the way industry defines storage and computing architecture, by bringing to market the first truly computational-defined storage solution. “The company’s IRIS (the Intensified RAM Intelligent Server) product will be offered in three variations: IRIS Compute, IRISVault and IRIS Store. The server solution introduces a new approach to storage and computing by rethinking how binary bits are processed and ultimately changing the way data is utilized. Symbolic’s solutions ensure that enterprise storage and compute no longer rely on media or hardware, instead “materializing” and “dematerializing” data in real-time and providing greater flexibility, performance and security.”
