Today SGI announced that the Earthquake and Volcano Information Center of the Earthquake Research Institute (ERI) at the University of Tokyo, has deployed a large-scale parallel computing solution from SGI for leading-edge seismological and volcanological research.
Today NERSC announced that their Cori Phase 1 system will be the first supercomputer installed in the new Computational Research and Theory Facility, which is now in the final stages of construction at LBNL. Expected to be delivered this summer, the Cray XC40 supercomputer will be powered by Intel Haswell processors and Cray’s DataWarp burst buffer technology.
Today RSC Group announced the installation of a MVS-10P MP Petastream supercomputer at the Joint Supercomputer Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (JSCC RAS). As is the first project in the Commonwealth of Independent States based on the latest Intel Xeon Phi 7120D coprocessors, the supercomputer weighs in at #20 of the Top50 list of the most powerful computing systems in Russia and CIS.
“When we began our relationship with Total more than 15 years ago, our goal was to continually provide the capacity and power required for the company to pursue its oil and gas research throughout the world. We are proud to be part of what has become a continuing legacy of technological research at Total and with this system upgrade, SGI’s innovative solutions will continue to help the company deliver sustainable production growth in the future.”
Today GCS in Germany announced that their new Hornet supercomputer at HLRS is ready for extreme-scale computing challenges. “To test its mettle, Hornet successfully completed six “XXL-projects” from computationally demanding scientific fields such as planetary research, climatology, environmental chemistry, and aerospace. All six XXL Projects utilized all of Hornet’s available 94,646 compute cores–results that more than satisfied the HLRS HPC experts and scientific users.”
