Slidecast: Micron Persistent Memory & NVDIMM

“Micron is delivering on the promise of persistent memory with a solution that gives system architects a new approach for designing systems with better performance, reduced energy usage and improved total cost of ownership,” said Tom Eby, vice president for Micron’s compute and networking business unit. “With NVDIMM, we have a powerful solution that is available today. We’re also leading the way on future persistent memory development by spearheading R&D efforts on promising new technologies such as 3D XPoint memory, which will be available in 2016 and beyond.”

Slidecast: How to Buy a Supercomputer – Lessons Learned from NAG

In this slidecast, Andrew Jones from NAG discusses the lessons learned from over 40 supercomputing procurements. NAG has announced plans to launch an impartial HPC technology intelligence and analysis subscription service at SC15. “Developed in partnership with Red Oak Consulting, the NAG HPC Technology Intelligence Service will deliver technology insight and risk-reduction to help HPC buyers and users make better decisions and optimize their HPC investments.”

RCE Podcast: Spack Package Management Tool

“Spack is designed to support multiple versions and configurations of software on a wide variety of platforms and environments. It was designed for large supercomputing centers, where many users and application teams share common installations of software on clusters with exotic architectures, using libraries that do not have a standard ABI. Spack is non-destructive: installing a new version does not break existing installations, so many configurations can coexist on the same system.”

Halloween Podcast: Radio Free HPC Shares their Biggest Fears for High Performance Computing

In this special Halloween podcast, the Radio Free HPC team shares their biggest fears for HPC. From cybersecurity to a lack of funding for important research, what’s the worst that could possibly happen?

RCE Podcast on the Conduit Model for Hierarchical Scientific Data

In this RCE podcast, Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres discuss Conduit with Cyrus Harriston from LLNL. Conduit is an open source project from Lawrence Livermore that provides an intuitive model for describing hierarchical scientific data in C++, C, Fortran, and Python and is used for data coupling between packages in-core, serialization, and I/O tasks.

Podcast: Intel HPC Developer Conference Coming to Austin for SC15

In this podcast, Intel Software Evangelist James Reinders describes the upcoming Intel HPC Developer Conference. Featuring a keynote by Jack Dongarra from the University of Tennessee, the event takes place Nov. 14-15 in Austin, just prior to SC15. “Modernizing your code on Intel architecture can help you achieve breakthrough performance for highly parallel applications. And, you won’t have to recode your entire problem, or master new tools and programming models.”
