In this video, the Radio Free HPC team meets at SC14 in New Orleans to discuss the recent news that Nvidia & IBM will build two Coral 150+ Petaflop Supercomputers in 2017 for Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories. The two machines will feature IBM POWER9 processors coupled with Nvidia’s future Volta GPU technology. NVLink will be a critical piece of the architecture as well, along with a system interconnect powered by Mellanox.
With ever-increasing parallelism in today’s processors, the need for code modernization is becoming more and more evident to organizations that need to compute to compete. Intel has responded to this dilemma by sponsoring Intel Parallel Computing Centers (Intel PCCs) around the globe. With an emphasis on doing modernization in an open, standard fashion that enables the best ROI, the Intel PCC program has shown remarkable progress in its first year. To learn more, we caught up Bob Burroughs, Director of Technical Computing Ecosystem Enabling at Intel.
Today AMD announced that for the third straight year it was awarded research grants for development of critical technologies needed for extreme-scale computing in conjunction with projects associated with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Extreme-Scale Computing Research and Development Program, known as “FastForward 2.”
“Broadly speaking, Battery invests globally in cutting-edge, category-defining businesses in markets including enterprise IT, software and services, e-commerce, digital media and industrial technologies. And we invest at every stage of a company’s lifecycle from seed to buyout. From there, we are looking for big markets. Entrepreneurs who are building a great team and attacking a huge market opportunity are always of interest to us. We are also watching the tectonic shifts brought on by trends like cloud computing, big data and mobile, and working to identify the companies that are taking advantage of those trends to help define, or in many cases re-define, industries.”
Today Asetek announced that the company will showcase its full range of RackCDU liquid cooling systems for HPC data centers at SC14.
