Industry Analyst Rob Farber has launched his new TechEnablement Blog. With in-depth features and tutorials on HPC topics, TechEnablement is designed to enable you to work with the latest technology. As part of the new site, Farber has posted study guides on CUDA, OpenACC, OpenCL, and Intel Xeon Phi.
The launch of the Women in High Performance Computing (WiHPC) network will include talks on the obstacles facing women in HPC and how to broaden participation.
“While there are multiple benchmarks to measure the performance of technical computers, there currently isn’t an adequate methodology to evaluate the economic and scientific value HPC systems contribute. The HPC Innovation Excellence Award Program is designed to help close that gap.”
Intel has selected Georgia Tech as the site of one of its newest Parallel Computing Centers. “The IPCC at Georgia Tech will develop new parallel algorithms and software for quantum chemistry and biomolecular simulation. Research will target large-scale computer systems using Intel Xeon Processors and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. The center will also develop new curricular materials to equip future computer scientists with the skills to fully realize the capabilities of parallel computing resources for scientific applications.”
“We have worked with Boeing since 2005 and are honored to receive this award in acknowledgement of our efforts over the last twelve months,” said Mak Gilbert, engineering manager at Altair ProductDesign. “Our specialist teams work alongside Boeing’s engineers to optimise the performance and minimise the weight of their aircraft on a daily basis. We are grateful to receive this award as a sign of the successful and close working relationship between our two companies.”
“The ClusterStor SDA represents an industry first, combining low level data access enforcement and logging mechanisms, purpose-built within a proven HPC and Big Data single-system solution. Since our customers need to know exactly who is doing what on their systems, as well as access to complete and explicit audit trails, the ClusterStor SDA delivers all the necessary tools and support to collaboratively share information, while strictly complying with security data protection standards.”
