In this video from the 2015 Hot Chips Conference, Charles Zhang from Phytium presents: Mars – A 64-Core ARMv8 Processor. Formed in China in 2012, Phytium is a unique technology provider of HPC servers, focusing mainly on high performance general microprocessor, accelerator chip, reference board design and various servers design from blade, cluster, standard stack to HPC Server. “Optimized for HPC, the Mars chip features eight panels, each with eight “Xiaomi” cores. The panels share an L2 cache of 32 MB, two Directory Control Units and a routing cell for the internal mesh.”
Manufacturing is enjoying an economic and technological resurgence with the help of high performance computing. In this insideHPC webinar, you’ll learn how the power of CAE and simulation is transforming the industry with faster time to solution, better quality, and reduced costs.
In this video from the DDN booth at SC15, Dr. Erik Deumens of the University of Florida describes why unpredictable and less standard architectures and system configurations are necessary to meet the agility, availability and responsiveness requirements to meet the mission of innovation and exploration. “The University of Florida’s Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research (ICBR) offers access to cutting-edge technologies designed to enable university faculty, staff and students, as well as research and commercial partners worldwide with the tools and resources needed to advance scientific research.”
Sugon is one of the top HPC vendors in China. With plans to expand operations in the West, the company is once again sponsoring the ISC 2016 conference. “Sugon, used to be called Dawning, rooted from the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICT), and was the first (and now largest) HPC local vendor in China. Since 1990, Sugon has been working on High Performance Computing, producing seven generations of HPC systems, such as Dawning I and Dawning 1000 to 6000. We have successfully supported more than 10,000 HPC projects.”
This visualization from CSCS in Switzerland shows the world’s smallest integrated switch. “Researchers working under Juerg Leuthold, Professor of Photonics and Communications at ETH Zurich, have created the world’s smallest integrated optical switch. Applying a small voltage causes an atom to relocate, turning the switch on or off. ETH Professor Mathieu Luisier, who participated in this study, simulated the system using Piz Daint Supercomputer. The component operates at the level of individual atoms. “
In this video, Prof. Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka from the Tokyo Institute of Technology describes his role as Program Chair of ISC High Performance 2016. He talks about the transformation of the conference in recent years and admits: “This is one of the most enjoyable conferences I have ever been to.” ISC High Performance is the landmark supercomputing, networking and storage event that attracts HPC enthusiasts from all across the globe. With 3,000 attendees, it is the largest HPC conference and exhibition in Europe. Regionally, the top five countries with the greatest number of ISC conference attendees are Germany, the United States, the United Kingdom, France and China. A growth in participation is projected for 2016, particularly from Asia.
Today PASC16 announced a lineup of world-class keynote speakers for its third annual conference. The event will feature keynotes from academic and industry leaders with a special emphasis on high-performance computing, and simulation and data sciences. Building on the successful format of the last two years’ conferences, PASC16 will offer an even broader and deeper selection of technical sessions, paper tracks, information stands, and presentations from industry and academia.
The speaker agenda has been published for the HPC-Based CFD for Offshore Renewable Energy Workshop. The two-day event takes place April 7-8 at Lancaster University in the UK.
In this video, Roger Goff from DDN describes how the company’s storage solutions have evolved to address the changing demands and requirements of HPC from compute all the way throughout the entire data lifecycle. “Organizations leverage the power of DDN technology and the deep technical expertise of our team to capture, store, process, analyze, collaborate and distribute data, information and content at largest scale in the most efficient, reliable and cost effective manner. Our customers include many of the world’s leading financial services firms and banks, healthcare and life science organizations, manufacturing and energy companies, government and research facilities, and web and cloud service providers.”
“The human microbiome plays a role in processes as diverse as metabolism, immune function, and mental health. Yet despite the importance of this system, scientists are just beginning to uncover which microorganisms reside in and on our bodies and determine what functions they perform. The development of innovative technology and analytical methods has enabled researchers like Dr. Pollard to decode the complex interactions between our human cells and microbial brethren, and infer meaning from the staggering amounts of data 10 trillion organisms create.”
