Researchers in the USA and in Europe have been offered access to some of the world’s most sophisticated supercomputers, as result of three initiatives announced this month.
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.
The Blue Waters petascale computing project at NCSA and the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) have signed a collaborative agreement, bringing together the National Science Foundation’s two largest cyberinfrastructure projects.
Allinea Software reports that CGG, one of the leading multinational integrated geosciences companies is ramping up its use of the Allinea DDT debugger within its globally distributed software development teams.
