In this Chip Chat podcast, Mike Bernhardt, Community Evangelist for HPC and Technical Computing at Intel, discusses the importance of code modernization as we move into multi- and many-core systems in the HPC field. According Bernhardt, markets as diverse as oil and gas, financial services, and health and life sciences can see a dramatic performance improvement in their code through parallelization.
In this episode of This Week in HPC, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research discuss the new Fortissimo Foundation from A3Cube, a clustered, pervasive, global direct-remote I/O access system. For more details, check out our A3Cube Slidecast over at insideBIGDATA. After that, they look at Paypal’s use of TI Keystone DSP processors for systems intelligence. By analyzing their chaotic real-time server data, Paypal is getting real-time, organized, intelligent results with extreme energy efficiency using HP’s Moonshot servers.
“Major cloud providers and Web 2.0 companies have converged on RoCE to solve the challenges of running compute intensive applications and processing massive amounts of data in hyperscale networking environments,” said Barry Barnett, co-chair of the InfiniBand Trade Association. “The RoCEv2 standard enables multi-vendor, interoperable solutions delivering RDMA that spans hyperscale network environments. This in turn paves the way for broader adoption within enterprise environments in order to improve infrastructure efficiency and lower total cost of ownership.”

In this episode of This Week in HPC, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research discuss the new Cray CS-Storm supercomputer based on Nvidia GPUs. After that, the discussion turns to exascale investment recommendations coming out of a new report from a Department of Energy Task Force.
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the Zennet initiative, a “public, distributed, and decentralized Supercomputer.” As the brainchild of Israeli computer scientist Ohad Asor, Zennet is essentially a free-market alternative to AWS that sounds a lot like the marriage of BitCoin and SETI@Home.
