In this Chip Chat podcast, Mike Bernhardt, the Community Evangelist for HPC and Technical Computing at Intel, discusses the importance of code modernization as we move into multi- and many-core systems. Markets as diverse as oil and gas, financial services, and health and life sciences can see a dramatic performance improvement in their code through parallelization.
In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Tom Wilkie writes that the way Europe has joined up its networks not only supports supercomputing on the continent, but also offers a model for international cooperation that might have lessons for the development of next-generation technology.
This week Russian supercomputing vendor RSC Group announced that the company is now a TOP10 supercomputing vendor according to the current edition of the Top500 list. In fact, RSC is the only Russian developer and manufacturer of HPC systems in the leading group of the rating by the number of deployed supercomputers.
In this video from the Nvidia booth theater at SC14, Buddy Bland from Oak Ridge National Laboratory presents: Accelerating ORNL’s Applications to the Exascale. “The Titan computer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is delivering exceptional results for our scientific users in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science, Applied Energy programs, academia, and industry. Mr. Bland will describe the Titan system, how this system fits within the roadmap to exascale machines, and describe successes we have had with our applications using GPU accelerators.”
In this video from SC14, Eyal Waldman from Mellanox announces that the company can now deliver end-to-end 100 Gigabit/sec InfiniBand. “The demand for more computing power, efficiency and scalability is constantly accelerating in the HPC, enterprise, cloud computing and Web 2.0 markets. To address these demands Mellanox provides complete end-to-end solutions (silicon, adapter cards, switch systems, cables and software) supporting InfiniBand and Ethernet networking technologies.”
In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Robert Roe writes that the era of data-centric HPC is upon us. He then investigates how data storage companies are rising to the challenge. In August 2014, a ‘Task Force on High Performance Computing’ reported to the US Department of Energy that data-centric computing will be […]
