“The free ride of faster performance with increased clock speeds is long gone. Software must be both threaded and vectorized to fully utilize today’s and tomorrow’s hardware. But modernization is not without cost. Not all threading or vectorization designs are worthwhile. How do you choose which designs to implement without disrupting ongoing development? Learn how data driven threading and vectorization design can yield long term performance growth with less risk and more impact.”
“This demo will show the capability of IBM OpenPOWER that can be the foundation of the complicated High Performance Computing complete solution. From the HPC cluster deployment, job scheduling, system management, application management to the science computing workloads on top of them, all these components can be well constructed on top of IBM OpenPOWER platform with good usability and performance. Also this demo shows the simplicity of migrating a complete x86 based HPC stack to the OpenPOWER platform.”
“Lustre’s original feature set targeted the workflows of the leading DOE labs who funded and supported its development. As the Lustre ecosystem grows, the workflows Lustre must support are becoming increasingly diverse, demanding corresponding expansion of its core feature set and the subsystems that operate around it. This talk describes how Lustre is maturing and growing to support the sometimes conflicting demands imposed by this diversity and outlines some significant areas for future development with a view to promoting ongoing discussion in the community.”
The Fastway Store on the UberCloud Marketplace is designed to provide exclusive training classes specifically designed to teach participants how to use the latest Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software on the cloud for Designers and Design Engineers. “Never before has a more complete curriculum been created to bring newcomers into the world of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and High Performance Computing.” says Fastway Engineering’s managing director, Jim Shaw.
Today ANSYS announced that the company is making its flagship engineering simulation software available on the cloud via Amazon Web Services. The new ANSYS Enterprise Cloud running on AWS enables customers to scale their simulation capacity – including infrastructure and software assets – on demand, in response to changing business requirements, optimizing efficiency and cost while responding to the growing demand for wider use of the technology.
“Learn how to program NVIDIA GPUs using Fortran with OpenACC directives. The first half of this presentation will introduce OpenACC to new GPU and OpenACC programmers, providing the basic material necessary to start successfully using GPUs for your Fortran programs. The second half will be intermediate material, with more advanced hints and tips for Fortran programmers with larger applications that they want to accelerate with a GPU. Among the topics to be covered will be dynamic device data lifetimes, global data, procedure calls, derived type support, and much more.”
