PRACE has announced the keynote speakers for its 2014 Scientific and Industrial Conference. Organized around a theme of HPC for Innovation – when Science meets Industry, the event will take place in Barcelona May 20-22.
Today Mellanox announced that its dual port ConnectX-3 10/40GbE Network Interface Cards are now fully compatible with qualified Dell PowerEdge servers.
PRACE and XSEDE have jointly opened an Invitation to submit Requests for Support for interoperable services between PRACE and XSEDE resources by collaborating teams.
A call for proposals for HPC cloud-based application experiments has been issued by the Fortissimo Project. Fortissimo is a new initiative launched in Europe specifically designed to assist manufacturers – especially SMEs – that have not yet realized the benefits of modeling and simulation (M&S) to boost their competitiveness.
“This partnership will bring supercomputer performance to the corporate data center, expanding the use of GPU accelerators well beyond the traditional supercomputing and technical computing markets,” said Ian Buck, vice president of Accelerated Computing at Nvidia. “It will also provide existing supercomputing and high performance computing customers with new choices and technologies to build powerful, energy-efficient systems that drive innovation and scientific discovery.”
A collaboration between CoolIT Systems, Canada, and the Schools of Computing and Mechanical Engineering at University of Leeds has been set up to analyze the influence of proximity liquid cooling on cloud-based workload algorithms.
One of the initial focuses of the new ExaScience Life Lab will be question of how supercomputers can accelerate the processing of entire genome sequences.
