As announced at SC13, the producers of several notable MPICH-derived MPI implementations have begun a collaboration with the explicit goal of maintaining ABI compatibility between their implementations. Without such compatibility between implementations,” said Kenneth Raffenetti, a software developer in Argonne’s Mathematics and Computer Science Division, “every new release would require application developers to rebuild and […]
HPC clusters have become a cornerstone for many scientific fields including some we’d never expected, such as biology. Virtualization is essential to a vast new era of systems and has (with some hype) given birth to ‘The Cloud’. The two are not necessarily incompatible and work is being done to bring benefits that enterprise users of virtualization enjoy to the HPC arena. This panel will challenge old notions, update you on current activities and provoke a debate about what’s needed for the future.
Display Manager is a web-based environment for remote visualization of very Big Data arising from large HPC simulations. “Display Manager eliminates the need for massive data movement across networks by leveraging NVIDIA GRID GPU’s for server side remote visualization. This represents a major milestone in the path toward complete simulation lifecycle management.” Watch the demo to see it in action.
As science drives a rapidly growing need for storage, existing environments face increasing pressure to expand capabilities while controlling costs. Many researchers, scientists and engineers find that they are outgrowing their current system, but fear their organizations may be too small to cover the cost and support needed for more storage. Join these experts for a lively discussion on how you can take control and solve the HPC data deluge.
TACC has announced that the center’s new Rodeo cloud computing offering is available for researchers that need large-scale resources, but prefer a virtualized, on-demand environment.
In this video from SC13, Torben Kling-Petersen from Xyratex describes the company’s new Grid RAID and ClusterStor 9000 data storage technologies. Grid RAID delivers up to 400% faster drive rebuild time to repair times needed to maintain peak performance while supporting the latest high capacity drives.
Today Allinea Software announced that five of Europe’s newest multi-petaflop Cray XC30 supercomputers are using the Allinea DDT parallel debugging tool.
