“PSyclone was developed for the UK Met Office and is now a part of the build system for Dynamo, the dynamical core currently in development for the Met Office’s ‘next generation’ weather and climate model software. By generating the complex code needed to make use of thousands of processors, PSyclone leaves the Met Office scientists free to concentrate on the science aspects of the model. This means that they will not have to change their code from something that works on a single processing unit (or core) to something that runs on many thousands of cores.”
The CloudLightning Project in Europe has published preliminary results from a survey on Barriers to Using HPC in the Cloud. “Trust in cloud computing would appear to be a significant barrier to adopting cloud computing for HPC workloads. Data management concerns dominate the responses.”
Today TYAN announced support and availability of the NVIDIA Tesla P100, P40 and P4 GPU accelerators with the new NVIDIA Pascal architecture. Incorporating NVIDIA’s state-of-the-art technologies allows TYAN to offer the exceptional performance and data-intensive applications features to HPC users.
Today Cycle Computing announced the Cloud-Agnostic Glossary, a solution brief written by Cycle Computing executives to help customers understand the different terms the different providers use and how they relate. “Technology keeps evolving, terms keep changing, and because of this, we were inspired to stop and take a moment to develop a glossary to keep track of meanings in real time, and according to vendor,” said Jason Stowe, CEO, Cycle Computing. “We ended up with this great solution brief, worthy of reading and sharing. It’s a useful document that we plan to update regularly.”
In this video, Better Markets CEO Dennis Kelleher discusses the progress of the Consolidated Audit Trail (CAT), a proposed SEC supercomputer that will be used to track orders and peer into dark pools. While this sounds like a good idea, Kelleher describes the conflicts of interest inherent in the proposal process the SEC is using for CAT. Kelleher is the CEO of Better Markets, a non-profit, non-partisan, and independent organization founded in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis to promote the public interest in the financial markets.
Submissions are now open for ISC 2017 tutorial and workshop proposals. The ISC 2017 conference takes place June 18-22, 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany.
“PushToCompute is the easiest and most advanced DevOps pipeline for high performance applications available today”, said Nimbix CTO Leo Reiter. “It seamlessly enables serverless computing of even the most complex workflows, greatly simplifying application deployment at scale, and eliminating the need for any platform orchestration or user interface work. Developers simply focus on their specific functionality, rather than on building cloud capabilities into their applications.”
“The Avere C2N System transforms traditional storage environments into cloud infrastructure that scales from 120 Terabytes to more than five Petabytes to provide an easy and economical path to the cloud. Unlike other object storage solutions that start at a petabyte or more, Avere offers an entry-point solution built for starting small and scaling to large capacities for demanding applications in media and entertainment, life sciences, financial services, technology and other high data-growth industries.”
“EXAScaler 3.0 raises the bar for Lustre performance and management,” said Laura Shepard, senior director of products and vertical markets, DDN. “As the world’s most experienced Lustre provider, DDN leverages input from a broad installed base and the Lustre community to deliver the most advanced Lustre solutions to our customers around the globe.”
In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Wolfgang Gentzsch explains the role of HPC container technology in providing ubiquitous access to HPC. “The advent of lightweight pervasive, packageable, portable, scalable, interactive, easy to access and use HPC application containers based on Docker technology running seamlessly on workstations, servers, and clouds, is bringing us ever closer to the democratization of HPC.”
