It can be tough to keep up with all that’s happening in HPC these days. Here are some notable items that may have not made it to the front page.
“Comet is really all about providing high-performance computing to a much larger research community – what we call ‘HPC for the 99 percent’ – and serving as a gateway to discovery,” said SDSC Director Michael Norman, the project’s principal investigator. “Comet has been specifically configured to meet the needs of researchers in domains that have not traditionally relied on supercomputers to solve their problems.”
“Powered by Intel’s Xeon E5-2600 v3 processor, Penguin Computing’s Tundra OpenHPC platform delivers density, performance and serviceability for demanding and extraordinary customers. Built to be compatible with Open Compute Open Rack specifications, the Tundra OpenHPC platform provides customers with a powerful and compact HPC server designed to reduce infrastructure costs when moving to the next generation of technology.”

“We have designed an end-to-end ecosystem complete with a new simulator, a new programming language, an integrated programming environment, new libraries, new (and old) algorithms as well as applications, and a new teaching curriculum. The goal of the ecosystem is to dramatically increase programmer productivity. Metaphorically, if TrueNorth is “ENIAC”, then our ecosystem is the corresponding “FORTRAN.”
