“FieldView products and services from Intelligent Light have been specifically developed to help CFD users get more reliable results in less time from their CFD investments. Post-processing can be the most important step in the CFD process -this is where the “pay off” occurs – where you gain insight and make decisions. Yet it is often overlooked when planning effective CFD workflows.”
Today Mellanox announced that the HPC4Health Consortium, led by The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and the University Health Network’s Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, has selected its InfiniBand networking solutions to improve patient care and help researchers to optimize treatment with the ultimate goal of finding a cure for cancer. The end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand networking solution was adopted as the foundation of the center’s cancer and genomics program, to accelerate the sharing, processing and analysis of data generated from radiology imaging, medical imaging analysis, protein folding, x-ray diffraction in order to improve patient care and expedite cancer research.
In this video from the Disruptive Technologies Panel at the HPC User Forum, Peter Braam from Cambridge University presents: Processing 1 EB per Day for the SKA Radio Telescope. “The Square Kilometre Array is an international effort to investigate and develop technologies which will enable us to build an enormous radio astronomy telescope with a million square meters of collecting area.”
In this video (with transcript) from the 2015 HPC User Forum in Broomfield, Bob Sorenson from IDC moderates a User Agency panel discussion on the NSCI initiative. “You all have seen that usable statement inside the NSCI, and we are all about trying to figure out how to make usable machines. That is a key critical component as far, as we’re concerned. But the thing that I think we’re really seeing, we talked about the fact that a single thread performance is not increasing, and so what we’re doing is we’re simply increasing the parallelism and then the physics limitations, if you will, of how you cool and distribute power among the parts that are there. That really is leading to a paradigm shift from something that’s based on how fast you can crunch the numbers to how fast you can feed the chips with data. It’s really that paradigm shift, I think, more than anything else that’s really going to change the way that we have to do our computing.”
“A university environment can be a challenge in many ways, with a wide variety of differing demands from more than a hundred different research groups, so how can a High Performance Computing group hope to meet the requirements of everyone? In this presentation I’ll explore some of the drivers for the HPC services we run at Imperial College London and how this maps onto our PBS Professional configuration. My talk will also cover how we use different features of PBS Pro and what advantages and benefits they give to us.”
Linding Lab at the University of Copenhagen used an SGI UV system to discover how genetic diseases such as cancer systematically attack the networks controlling human cells. By developing advanced algorithms to integrate data from quantitative mass-spectrometry and next generation sequencing of tumor samples, the UCPH researchers have been able to uncover cancer related changes to phospho-signaling networks at a global scale. The studies are some of the early results of the strategic collaboration between SGI and the Linding Lab at UCPH. The landmark findings have been published in two back-to-back papers in today’s Cell journal.
Today Oak Ridge announced approval of a project run ParallelWare from Appentra on the Titan Supercomputer. The project includes an allocation of 50,000 core hours on supercomputer. “ParallelWare is an source-to-source parallelizing compiler for sequential scientific programs. ParallelWare automatically discovers the parallelism available int he input sequential C code, and automatically generates parallel-equivalent C code annotated with OpenMP compiler directives.
