Today LLNL, Intel and Cray announced a unique HPC cluster that will provide a proving ground for new HPC and Big Data technologies and architectures. As the name implies, Catalyst aims to accelerate HPC simulation and big data innovation.
Last week DDN announced that NERSC had has upgraded its scratch storage for temporary scientific data into a single site-wide system with four petabytes of storage built on DataDirect Networks Storage Fusion Architecture. To learn more, we caught up with Laura Shepard, Director of Marketing for HPC at DDN.
Today the Open Scalable File Systems organization announced that Fujitsu has joined OpenSFS. Fujitsu is also a Gold Sponsor of the Lustre User Group (LUG) in Tokyo, taking place October 17, 2013.
NCSA is deeply interested in the continuing development of Lustre. Membership in OpenSFS ensures direct representation for our Blue Waters science and engineering teams early in the decision-making process for Lustre improvements.
The ISB is described as the first workflow manager that is purpose-built for application users working in HPC environments that use the Lustre parallel file system and need direct access to project data at any point in the application workflow.
The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute has deployed over 22 petabytes of the DDN’s Lustre-powered high-performance storage.
Powered by Lustre, The Comet supercomputer is designed to be part of an emerging cyberinfrastructure for what is called the ‘long tail’ of science, which encompasses the idea that a large number of modest-sized computationally based research projects still represents, in aggregate, a tremendous amount of research and scientific impact
Today OpenSFS announced the expansion of the Lustre User Group (LUG) conferences to the Asia-Pacific Region (APAC). The first Asian LUGs will take place in Beijing, China, on October 15, 2013, followed by Tokyo, Japan, on October 17, 2013. There’s really no substitute for face-to-face technical discussions with plenty of chance for in depth […]
In the coming years the new international accelerator facility FAIR, one of the largest research projects worldwide, will be built at GSI. At FAIR an unprecedented variety of experiments will be possible. Scientists from all over the world will be able to gain new insights into the structure of matter and the evolution of the universe from the Big Bang to the present.
