Satoshi Matsuoka Presents: A Look at Big Data in HPC


In this video from the DDN User Group at ISC’14, Satoshi Matsuoka from the Tokyo Institute of Technology presents: A Look at Big Data in HPC. “HPC has been dealing with big data for all of its existence. But it turns out that the recent commercial emphasis on big data, has coincided with a fundamental change in the sciences as well. As scientific instruments and facilities produce large amounts of data in an unprecedented rate, the HPC community is reacting to this, with revisiting architecture, tools, and services to address this growth in data.”

International Exascale Workshop Culminates with US-Japan Collaboration Agreement


On June 22, the US Department of Energy (DOE) and Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) signed an agreement to collaborate on exascale supercomputing technologies for the scientific community. In a nutshell, the plan is to build a common OS kernel that can be used by all post-petascale systems, regardless of hardware eccentricities.
