This week the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) announced that their new ARCHER supercomputer is already making an impact with users across the UK.
Edison can execute nearly 2.4 quadrillion floating-point operations per second (petaflop/s) at peak theoretical speeds. While theoretical speeds are impressive, “NERSC’s longstanding approach is to evaluate proposed systems by how well they meet the needs of our diverse community of researchers, so we focus on sustained performance on real applications,” said NERSC Division Deputy for Operations Jeff Broughton.
Colocation provider CyrusOne announced today that it now offers 31 megawatts of critical power load at its Houston West data center campus in what the company believes is the largest concentration of HPC and high-density data center space available anywhere.
“We chose Mellanox’s end-to-end FDR InfiniBand interconnects to connect the system, specifically by using their Connect-IB adapters in a dual rail network, as well as utilize the NVIDA GPUDirect RDMA communication acceleration to significantly increase the systems parallel efficiency.”
The University of Florida’s Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research (ICBR) has selected DDN high-performance storage as the foundation for a converged infrastructure designed to accommodate ever-increasing life sciences and bioinformatics workloads.
Today Allinea Software announced that five of Europe’s newest multi-petaflop Cray XC30 supercomputers are using the Allinea DDT parallel debugging tool.
