Job of the Week: Data Operations Specialist at the Simons Foundation

“The Simons Foundation is beginning a new computational science organization called the Flatiron Institute. Flatiron will seek to explore challenging science problems in astrophysics, biology and chemistry. Computational science techniques involve processing and simulation activities and large-scale data analysis. This position is intended to help manage and fully exploit the data and storage resources at Flatiron to further the scientific mission.”

ACM Announces George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowships

Today ACM announced the recipients of the 2016 ACM/IEEE George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowships. The fellowship honors exceptional PhD students throughout the world whose research focus is on high performance computing applications, networking, storage or large-scale data analytics using the most powerful computers that are currently available.

Overview of the MVAPICH Project and Future Roadmap

In this video from the 4th Annual MVAPICH User Group, DK Panda from Ohio State University presents: Overview of the MVAPICH Project and Future Roadmap. “This talk will provide an overview of the MVAPICH project (past, present and future). Future roadmap and features for upcoming releases of the MVAPICH2 software family (including MVAPICH2-X, MVAPICH2-GDR, MVAPICH2-Virt, MVAPICH2-EA and MVAPICH2-MIC) will be presented. Current status and future plans for OSU INAM, OEMT and OMB will also be presented.”

Speakers Announced for HPC User Forum in Beijing

IDC has announced the featured speakers for the next international HPC User Forum. The event will take place Sept. 22 in Beijing, China.

Spack Tool Eases Transition to Next-Gen Scientific Simulations

“Spack is like an app store for HPC,” says Todd Gamblin, its creator and lead developer. “It’s a bit more complicated than that, but it simplifies life for users in a similar way. Spack allows users to easily find the packages they want, it automates the installation process, and it allows contributors to easily share their own build recipes with others.” Gamblin is a computer scientist in LLNL’s Center for Applied Scientific Computing and works with the Development Environment Group at Livermore Computing.

Video: Exploring I/O Challenges at Exascale

“Clear trends in the past and current petascale systems (i.e., Jaguar and Titan) and the new generation of systems that will transition us toward exascale (i.e., Aurora and Summit) outline how concurrency and peak performance are growing dramatically, however, I/O bandwidth remains stagnant. In this talk, we explore challenges when dealing with I/O-ignorant high performance computing systems and opportunities for integrating I/O awareness in these systems.”

Finalists Announced for Gordon Bell Prize in HPC

“High performance computing continues to underwrite the progress of research using computational methods for the analysis and modeling of complex phenomena,” said Vint Cerf and John White, ACM Award Committee co-chairs, in a statement. “This year’s finalists illustrate the key role that high performance computing plays in 21st Century research. The Gordon Bell Award committee has worked diligently to select from many choices, those most deserving of recognition for this year. Like everyone else, we will be eager to learn which of the nominees takes the top prize for 2016.”

Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel Alliance Delivers New Centers of Excellence for HPC

Intel and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) have recently created two new Centers of Excellence (CoE) to help customers gain hands-on experience with High Performance Computing (HPC). This plus collaboration with customers on implementing the latest technology solutions are highlights being celebrated by the two companies on the one-year anniversary of their alliance.

NSF Awards $110 Million for XSEDE 2.0

Today, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced a $110 million award to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and 18 partner institutions to continue and expand activities undertaken through the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE).

Avere Systems Teams with Cycle Computing for High Performance Multi-cloud Orchestration

Today Avere Systems and Cycle Computing announced a technology integration that enables hybrid high-performance computing (HPC) in popular public cloud computing environments. By integrating the Avere vFXT Edge filer cloud bursting technology with Cycle Computing’s CycleCloud offering, users are now able to launch an Avere tiered file system on demand linked directly with the CycleCloud managed scalable compute nodes through cloud providers like AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure.
