Job of the Week: Tenure-track Faculty Position in HPC at Cal Poly


The Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Computer Science Department is hiring a tenure-track faculty position in our HPC Job of the Week.

Radio Free HPC Looks at Highlights from Fall 2015 HPC Conferences


In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team goes over a Trip Report from Rich Brueckner from insideHPC, who’s been on the road at a series of HPC conferences. We captured more that 50 talks in the past month, and we have them all right here with the very latest in High Performance Computing.

Video: NVLink Interconnect for GPUs


“NVLink enables fast data exchange between CPU and GPU, thereby improving data throughput through the computing system and overcoming a key bottleneck for accelerated computing today. NVLink makes it easier for developers to modify high-performance and data analytics applications to take advantage of accelerated CPU-GPU systems. We think this technology represents another significant contribution to our OpenPOWER ecosystem.”

Communication Frameworks for HPC and Big Data

DK Panda, Ohio State University

DK Panda from Ohio State University presented this talk at the HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference. “Dr. Panda and his research group members have been doing extensive research on modern networking technologies including InfiniBand and 10-40GE/iWARP. His research group is currently collaborating with National Laboratories and leading InfiniBand and 10-40GE/iWARP companies on designing various subsystems of next generation high-end systems.”

EU/European HPC Plans for the Next Decade


Bob Sorensen from IDC presented this talk at the HPC User Forum. In a recent study, IDC assessed the EU’s progress towards their 2012 action plan and made recommendations for funding exascale systems and fostering industrial HPC in the coming decade.

Stepping up to the performance challenge

David Lecomber, CEO, Allinea

The performance-savvy HPC developer is in high demand today. Leaps in intra-node parallelism, memory performance and capacity are set to meet applications struggling to exploit existing systems head-on.

Video: On the Role of Flash in Large-Scale Storage Systems


Nathan Rutman from Seagate presented this talk at the LAD’15 Conference. “So why is a spinning disk company talking about Flash? Last year, Seagate acquired Avago LSI’s flash division. We now have an array of flash-based storage. So I have nothing against Flash. This presentation is really on: Where does Flash make sense? I also have a personal agenda because I hate the term “Burst Buffer.” Everyone says “Burst Buffer” instead of saying “Flash.” It drives me crazy. So I’m going to explain what a Burst Buffer is and what it is not.”

UCX: Co-Design Architecture For Next Generation HPC Systems


“The UCX Unified Communication X project is a collaboration between industry, laboratories, and academia to create an open-source production grade communication framework for data centric and high-performance applications. At the core of the UCX project are the combined features, ideas, and concepts of industry leading technologies including MXM, PAMI and UCCS. Mellanox Technologies has contributed their MXM technology, which provides enhancements to parallel communication.”

Video: HPC Technology Panel at the PBS Works User Group


Rich Brueckner from insideHPC moderated this panel discussion on current trends in HPC. “President Obama’s Executive Order establishing the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI) will set the stage for a new chapter in leadership computing for the United States. In this panel discussion, thought leaders from leading supercomputing vendors share their perspectives on current HPC trends and the way forward.”
