The Holland Computing Center HPC support team at the University of Nebraska is using Allinea Software’s unified debugging and profiling tools to help users speed up their scientific computing. With the need to support four clusters and total of 20,000 compute cores, Nebraska’s HPC support team provides assistance to many users of large MPI applications […]

Why the Industry Needs More HPC Performance Tool Developers

Dr. Ing. Bernd Mohr

Over at the ISC Blog, Bernd Mohr writes that HPC programmers are still in demand thanks to the complexity of today’s hybrid supercomputers. So, in reality programming HPC systems is still very complex and if you manage to create a correctly working program, it does not automatically mean you get a very efficiently working program. […]

Don’t Play MacGyver With Your Data Center Cluster

Dr. Matthijs van Leeuwen, Founder and CEO of Bright Computing

MacGyver is a character famous for getting out of tough situations by coming up with a makeshift solution from whatever bits and pieces he found laying around. That’s no way to manage a critical part of your organization’s infrastructure.
