This interview describes how the Ubercloud project is working to help SMEs to adopt Cloud HPC.
Lucera’s breakthrough high performance cloud infrastructure is based on Scalable Informatics’ siCloud, siRouter, siFlash, and JackRabbit systems.
Over at Hi Velocity, Douglas J. Gruth writes that the 154 Teraflop Oakley supercomputer at Ohio State University is a powerful resource for industry and the missing middle. Simulation helps make our products the best they can be,” said Thomas Lange, director of research and development at Procter & Gamble. “That’s our challenge. We don’t […]
Argonne National Labs hosted a one-day workshop last week to surface unmet needs for Open Cloud research.
Over at Lawrence Livermore, Donald B Johnston writes that the US National Labs are collaborating with their counterparts in the UK to help increase industrial competitiveness. As part of a memorandum of understanding signed this week by LLNL Director Parney Albright and Chief Executive John Womersley of the United Kingdom’s STFC, Livermore will share technology […]
Ohio’s Third Frontier Commission is funding an effort to boost Ohio businesses through modeling and simulation. With a $3 million grant to the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), project partners will design and deploy easy-to-use advanced “manufacturing apps” through the group’s Intelligent Simulation Platform program. Many large manufacturers have embraced simulation-driven design to achieve a degree […]
Millions of hours of data processing time on Compute Canada’s advanced computing facilities have helped an international team of researchers complete the world’s first high-resolution 3D digital model of the human brain. The BigBrain Project, involving researchers from Germany and Canada, has unveiled a whole-brain model at 50 times the resolution, in each of the […]
At ISC’13, Tom Wilkie heard some European success stories in research using high-performance computing and learned of ambitious plans for a European HPC industry. But he also heard some criticisms too – are there dark clouds on Europe’s HPC horizon? In a neat bit of symmetry, European cooperation bracketed this year’s International Supercomputing Conference and […]
Five leading national research and education networks (NRENs) — ESnet, Funet, Internet2, Janet and SURFnet – have launched a competition called the Enlighten Your Research Global. The program aims to encourage and support research collaborations by taking advantage of leading-edge, global network resources to accelerate national research. Networks have become a critical piece of the […]
Over at FCW Magazine, Mark Rockwell writes that Lawrence Livermore National Labs has five petaflops of computing power it wants to share. To help fuel technological innovation to spur U.S. economic competitiveness, the research facility has officially opened up access to its massive Vulcan supercomputer to industry and academia for collaborative developmental projects. High performance […]
