Interview: How Univa Short Jobs Brings Low Latency to Financial Services

Gary Tyreman, CEO, Univa

With the launch of Univa Small Jobs add-on for Univa Grid Engine, the company, the company offers “the world’s most efficient processing and lowest latency available for important tasks like real-time trading, transactions, and other critical applications.” To learn more, we caught up with Univa President & CEO Gary Tyreman.

Interview: Trends in HPC & Cloud in Financial Services

juho

While not every industry is making the move to the Cloud at quite the same rate, the high performance side of the Financial Services industry seems to be ahead of the curve. This year, the ISC 2015 conference will feature a session on HPC & Cloud Computing in Financial Services. To learn more about the latest trends in this area, we caught up with Prof. Juho Kanniainen from Tampere University of Technology and Tuomas Eerola from Techila Technologies.

HPC on Windows – Does It Still Make Sense?

Jan Wender, science+computing

Could there still be a place for Windows in HPC environments? To find out, we caught up with Jan Wender from German IT service provider science+computing, who will deliver a talk on this topic at the ISC High Performance conference next month in Frankfurt, Germany.

Contrasting how Japan and Europe Promote the Use of HPC

Europe and Japan have come to the same conclusion; HPC resources must be shared and not monopolized by the individual owners of the computer systems themselves. And both have set up bodies to coordinate that process of sharing which bear remarkable resemblances to each other.

Radio Free HPC Looks at Federal Employee Hack

In this episode, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the recent hack of U.S. government employee data. Hackers stole personnel data and Social Security numbers for every federal employee, including military records and veterans’ status information, address, birth date, job and pay history, health insurance, life insurance and pension information; and age, gender, and race data.

Will Europe be First to Exascale?

“The strengths and the limitations of Europe’s supercomputing strategy were laid out at the PRACEDdays15 conference in Dublin at the end of May, with the minds of many delegates concentrated by the announcement in the USA over the course of the past few months of the $425 million ‘Coral’ procurement, intended to develop supercomputers that will leapfrog the international competition and open up the way to an Exascale machine.”

Video: From Megaflop to Petaflop and Beyond

Arden L. Bement

“Over the three decades supercomputer throughput rates have increased dramatically from 100s of MFLOPs in 1985 to tens of PFLOPS today, making U.S. universities pre-eminent in the world in computational S&E, which is a tribute to both NSF and Centers’ dedication and leadership. Looking ahead to the impacts of synaptic computing, high-performance computing coupled with data analysis, and cloud computing coupled with the Internet of Things (IOT), the challenges and opportunities in computational S&E in all sectors of U.S. Society is projected to advance dramatically.”

Why Hardware is Leaving Software Behind
