In this episode of This Week in HPC, Michael Feldman from Intersect360 Research and Rich Brueckner from insideHPC discuss Intel’s new Xeon E7 V2 processors designed for in-memory analytics. Following that, they take a look a the secret sauce behind Lucera’s new cloud for High Frequency Trading.
Over at the XSEDE blog, Scott Gibson writes that the organization is collaborating with industrial partners to both advance open science and improve companies’ bottom lines. The “Industry Challenge” is a new XSEDE program designed to bring the scientific and industrial communities together in multidisciplinary collaborative teams and connect them with world-class advanced digital services.

Burak Yenier presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “The UberCloud HPC Experiment brings together over 1000 participants to pave the way for HPC as a Service. Active project teams explore the end-to-end process of accessing remote computing resources in HPC centers and in HPC Clouds to study and overcome the potential roadblocks for industry applications such as CAE, Bio, and Life Sciences.”
Today Mellanox announced CloudX, a reference architecture for building efficient cloud platforms.
Over at TechRadar, Julian Fielden from OCF writes that the users faced with almost insurmountable energy and cooling challenges will likely avoid owning and housing their own Exascale computing facilities and look to the “cloud” and on-demand services provided by much larger international suppliers.
Over at the Connect Blog, Adriana Hamacher writes that the attractions of big data and necessity for increased computing power are pulling HPC out of its academic cloisters and into business. These new developments can open up the world of supercomputers to expanding organisations that want to quickly take on more work and exceed capacity […]
In this video, Burak Yenier from the HPC Experiment describes the new UberCloud Marketplace. As a One-Stop-Shop for HPC as a Service, the Marketplace is a place where engineers and scientists can discover, try and buy the computing power and expertise on demand they need for their computational and data-intensive tasks.
Advocates of Cloud Computing for HPC Workloads got a huge potential boost for their cause this week with the announcement that opening of the new UberCloud Marketplace. As a One-Stop-Shop for HPC as a Service, the Marketplace is a place where engineers and scientists can discover, try and buy the computing power and expertise on demand they need for their computational and data-intensive tasks.
