HPC Across the Enterprise: How HPC Transforms the Corporate IT Ecosystem

Thomas Leung, HPC Principal Technologist, GE Global Research

Thomas Leung from the GE Global Research Center presented this talk at the PBS Works User Group. “The commercial world uses significant HPC resources for simulation and product design. An increasing number of HPC systems are deployed in the commercial space and their scale is getting larger and larger. These advanced systems push limits in every aspect of Enterprise IT. Accommodating such systems within the enterprise is a challenge, and there have been many recent changes to enterprise IT infrastructures and architectures resulting from the need to support HPC.”

GPUs Power Low-Cost Supercomputer Solution from Nor-Tech

David Bollig, President and CEO of Nor-Tech

“We figured out a way to get consumer-grade cards into a 4U chassis,” said Nor-Tech’s Vice President of Engineering, Dom Daninger and his team tested and retested the prototype until they were satisfied that their solution would be successful for most applications. “The result is a niche product that allows nearly all organizations to take advantage of GPU supercomputing capabilities—in essence supercomputing capabilities at an unheard of price point.”

PEZY & ExaScaler Step Up on the Green500 List with Immersive Cooling

PEZY Computing from Japan has earned the top three rankings on the Green500 list, using a 3M Fluorinert Electronic Liquid in an immersive cooling system built by ExaScaler Inc. The Green500 is a biannual ranking of the most energy-efficient supercomputers in the world. The triple win indicates growing progress and adoption in the field of immersion cooling with engineered dielectric fluids and its potential to transform the high performance computing (HPC) industry with step-change improvements in energy efficiency and compute performance.

SELinux at Lockheed: A New Multi-Level Security Initiative

Sarah Storms, Project Engineer, Lockheed Martin

“Historically cyber security in HPC has been limited to detecting intrusions rather than designing security from the beginning in a holistic, layered approach to protect the system. SELinux has provided the needed framework to address cyber security issues for a decade, but the lack of an HPC and data analysis eco-system based on SELinux and the perception that the resulting configuration is “hard” to use has prevented SELinux configurations from being widely accepted. This presentation will discuss the eco-system that has been developed and certified, debunk the “hard” perception, and illustrate approaches for both government and commercial applications.”

Intelligent Light: Breaking the Disk IO Bottleneck in CFD by Eliminating It


“FieldView products and services from Intelligent Light have been specifically developed to help CFD users get more reliable results in less time from their CFD investments. Post-processing can be the most important step in the CFD process -this is where the “pay off” occurs – where you gain insight and make decisions. Yet it is often overlooked when planning effective CFD workflows.”

Boosting Wind Power with Cloud Computing


Cloud computing is another tool that is helping the wind power sector up its game. “We are seeing movement from most engineering companies to cloud computing as the economics are better and the security of the cloud has improved. Additionally, massive amounts of resources are available cheaply and bandwidth has increased to match the needs of the wind power simulation space.”

Brüel & Kjær joins the Altair Partner Alliance


Altair has announced that Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement has joined the Altair Partner Alliance (APA), bringing its noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) software, Insight+, to HyperWorks customers. Insight+ creates the ability to efficiently consider test and computer-aided engineering (CAE) data together to assist engineers in better understanding NVH contributions early in the design process.

LLNL & Rensselaer Polytechnic to Promote Industrial HPC


Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will combine decades of expertise to help American industry and businesses expand use of high performance computing under a recently signed memorandum of understanding.

US Air Force Awards Pointwise $1.2 Million CFD Contract


Pointwise, a software company specializing in grid generation and pre-processing software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD), has been awarded a two-year, $1.2 million contract from the US Air Force Materiel Command, part of the Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC), located at Arnold Air Force Base, Tennessee.

Bright Computing Collaborates on OpenHPEC Accelerator Suite


Today Curtiss-Wright Corporation announced that its Defense Solutions division is collaborating with leading High Performance Computing software vendor Bright Computing to bring its supercomputing software tools to the embedded Aerospace & Defense market as part of Curtiss-Wright’s recently announced OpenHPEC Accelerator Suite of best-in-class software development tools.
