Woodside Energy in Australia is building a $500k supercomputer to help oil and gas exploration efforts. Powered by Intel Xeon processors with 880 cores, the supercomputer has been named Moordiup, an Aboriginal word meaning ‘fast’.
The new Trillian supercomputer at the University of New Hampshire will be used to study such subjects as solar wind and its properties, turbulence in fluids and plasmas, and space weather.
The AMOS (Advanced Multiprocessing Optimised System) five-rack IBM Blue Gene/Q supercomputer has been deployed at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Last week DDN announced that NERSC had has upgraded its scratch storage for temporary scientific data into a single site-wide system with four petabytes of storage built on DataDirect Networks Storage Fusion Architecture. To learn more, we caught up with Laura Shepard, Director of Marketing for HPC at DDN.
This week BP opened it new datacenter in Houston, home to the world’s largest supercomputer for commercial research. According BP, the company’s computing needs are 20,000 times greater today than they were in 1999. Now, when you take into account that BP was probably one of the world’s top consumers of commercial compute cycles even back then, you get the idea as to why today’s enterprises need to compute to compete.
CSIRO in Australia is using innovative groundwater cooling for its new supercomputer. As a green computing approach, the technology will save natural resources as it powers the futuristic Square Kilometre Array, a giant, supremely sensitive radio telescope.
