Today Lucera Financial Infrastructures announced the availability of its high-performance infrastructure to power electronic trading by financial institutions and high-frequency trading (HFT) firms.
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.
In this special feature from Scientific Computing World, Sean Ekins from Collaborative Drug Discovery explains to Robert Roe how science apps can be used for cheminformatics workflows. Delegates attending the SLAS2014 Conference in San Diego California from 18 to 22 January were able to download a conference app – available free from the iTunes store […]
Today Texas A&M University and IBM began a broad research collaboration dedicated to advances in agriculture, geosciences, and engineering. The collaboration will leverage the power of big data analytics and high performance computing (HPC) systems for innovative solutions across a spectrum of challenges, such as improving extraction of Earth-based energy resources, facilitating the smart energy […]
