In this RCE podcast, Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres discuss Conduit with Cyrus Harriston from LLNL. Conduit is an open source project from Lawrence Livermore that provides an intuitive model for describing hierarchical scientific data in C++, C, Fortran, and Python and is used for data coupling between packages in-core, serialization, and I/O tasks.
In this podcast, Intel Software Evangelist James Reinders describes the upcoming Intel HPC Developer Conference. Featuring a keynote by Jack Dongarra from the University of Tennessee, the event takes place Nov. 14-15 in Austin, just prior to SC15. “Modernizing your code on Intel architecture can help you achieve breakthrough performance for highly parallel applications. And, you won’t have to recode your entire problem, or master new tools and programming models.”
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks Dell’s pending acquisition of EMC. “Dell Inc. and EMC Corporation have signed a definitive agreement under which Dell, together with its owners, Michael S. Dell, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Dell, MSD Partners and Silver Lake, the global leader in technology investing, will acquire EMC Corporation, while maintaining VMware as a publicly-traded company.”
In this podcast, David Bump from Dell describes an upcoming Workshop on large genomic data sets coming to La Jolla, California on Sept. 15, 2015. “Please join us for this one day workshop featuring presentations from Dell, Appistry, UNC Chapel Hill, Arizona State University, and TGen who all will share their cutting-edge results and best practices for helping labs process, manage, and analyze large genomic data sets. You will also hear from Intel and Nvidia on their latest HPC/Big Data technology innovations.”
In this podcast, Jason Stowe from Cycle Computing describes how the Broad Institute is mapping cancer genes with CycleCloud. According to Stowe, Cycle Computing recently ran a 50,000+ core workload for the Broad Institute with low-cost Preemptible VMs on the Google Compute Engine, performing three decades of cancer research computations in a single afternoon.
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team previews three of the excellent Tutorial sessions coming up at SC15. “The SC tutorials program is one of the highlights of the SC Conference series, and it is one of the largest tutorial programs at any computing-related conference in the world. It offers attendees the chance to learn from and to interact with leading experts in the most popular areas of high performance computing (HPC), networking, and storage.”
Over at TACC, Jorge Salazar writes that new supercomputer simulations are helping doctors improve the repair and replacement of heart valves. “New supercomputer models have come closer than ever to capturing the behavior of normal human heart valves and their replacements, according to recent studies by groups including scientists at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) at The University of Texas at Austin and the Department of Mechanical Engineering atIowa State University.”
