“Huawei focuses on R&D of IT infrastructure, cooling solutions, software integration, and provides end-to-end HPC solution by building ecosystems with partners. Huawei help customers from different sectors and fields, solving challenges and problems with computing resources, energy expenditure and business needs. This presentation will introduce how Huawei brings fresh technologies to next-generation HPC solutions for more innovation, higher efficiency and scale, as well as presenting our best practices for HPC.”

HPC4Mfg Seek New Proposals from Industry

A new DOE program designed to spur the use of high-performance supercomputers to advance U.S. manufacturing is now seeking a second round of proposals from industry to compete for approximately $3 million in new funding. “We are thrilled with the response from the U.S. manufacturing industry,” said LLNL mathematician Peg Folta, the director of the HPC4Mfg program. “This program lowers the barrier of entry for U.S. manufacturers to adopt HPC. It makes it easier for a company to use supercomputers by not only funding access to the HPC systems, but also to experts in the use of these systems to solve complex problems.”

Rescale Cloud Speeds Manor Racing Trackside Simulation

Manor Racing will use Rescale’s cloud high performance computing platform to enable trackside simulation on a whole new scale for the team. “The cloud market is moving at the speed of Formula 1. We are continually challenging ourselves to enable our customers to achieve better results faster by leveraging and deploying the latest technologies in computing hardware and simulation software to the industry leaders. We are now doing this with Manor Racing and not only deploying cutting edge technology, but also technology that delivers direct and tangible results through the sport. It’s very exciting for all of us.”
