Intel has been banned by the US Government from selling any more Xeon processors for use in the world’s fastest supercomputer, the Tiahane-2 ‘Milky Way’ machine at the Guangzhou Supercomputer Centre in China.
“The drive toward exascale computing, a renewed emphasis on data-centric processing, energy efficiency concerns, and the limitations of memory and I/O performance are all working to reshape High Performance Computing platforms. Many-core accelerators, flash storage, 3D memory, integrated networking, and optical interconnects are just some of the technologies propelling these future architectures. In concert with those developments, the HPC vendor landscape has been churning in response to broader market forces, and these events are going to drive some interesting changes in the coming year.”
In this video from the 2015 Stanford HPC Conference, Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research presents: High Performance Computing Trends. “Intersect360 Research’s deep knowledge of HPC, coupled with strong marketing and consulting expertise, results in actionable intelligence for the HPC industry – insights and advice that allow customers to make decisions that are measurably positive to their business.”
“We’ve grown substantially and matured as a company. We’ve expanded our customer base. We’ve hired many talented people who have strengthened our core technical, administrative, legal, and management teams. We’re in the final stages of perfecting the design of our next generation, “Washington”, quantum processor. We’ve cemented new business relationships with companies, including 1QBit, DNA-SEQ, and QxBranch, aiming to develop software for our platform. And we have gained a deeper understanding of the best ways to harness quantum computing resources.”
