Podcast: Supercomputing Powers Efforts to Save Ocean Coral


What can we do to help ocean coral survive Global Warming? In this TACC podcast, Jorge Salazar looks at how researchers are using the Stampede supercomputer to investigate how Corals can genetically adapt to warmer waters.

Radio Free HPC Looks at the Grand Challenges of NSCI


In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the new round of Grand Challenges targeted by the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI). The conversation was sparked by an Scientific Computing editorial by IBM’s Dave Turek.

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.

Podcast: Dell Workshop on Large Genomic Data sets Coming to La Jolla Sept. 15

David Bump, Dell

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.”

Podcast: Preemptible VMs Lower Cost of Cancer Research at Broad Insitutue

Jason Stowe, CEO, Cycle Computing

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 B​road Institute with low-cost Preemptible VMs on the Google Compute Engine, performing three decades of cancer research computations in a single afternoon.

Radio Free HPC Previews Tutorials at SC15


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.”

Podcast: Supercomputing the Human Heart

Different views of the reconstructed finite element (FE) model for the ovine mitral valve apparatus with anatomically accurate leaflets represented by shell elements.

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.”

Podcast: HP & Intel Accelerate HPC Solutions

Bill Mannel, VP & GM of HPC & Big Data Business Unit at HP

In this Intel Chip Chat podcast, Bill Mannel from HP stops by to discuss the growing demand for high performance computing solutions and the innovative use of HPC to manage big data. He highlights an alliance between Intel and HP that will accelerate HPC and big data solutions tailored to meet the latest needs and workloads of HPC customers, leading with customized vertical solutions.

Slidecast: Seagate’s New Nytro Flash Products


“These new flash products greatly expand the range of our total product portfolio and demonstrate how Seagate’s acquisition of the LSI flash technologies is paying off. The Nytro XF1440/XM1440 SSDs deliver the highest performance in the smallest power envelope. The XP6500 flash accelerator card provides ultra-low latency capability for applications that require fast logging and produce significantly higher transactions per second,–something today’s applications demand.”

Slidecast: IBM Platform Data Manager for LSF


“IBM Platform Data Manager for LSF takes control of data transfers to help organizations improve data throughput and lower costs by minimizing wasted compute cycles and conserving disk space. Platform Data Manager automates the transfer of data used by application workloads running on IBM Platform LSF clusters and the cloud, bringing frequently used data closer to compute resources by storing it in a smart, managed cache that can be shared among users and workloads.”
