In this special feature, Mike Bernhardt looks at our current progress towards Exascale computing, a future milestone of supercomputing 10^18 flops.
A new study by Henry Coles of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has validated the energy-savings potential of Asetek RackCDU liquid cooling technology.
A new report shows that the American research community is already experiencing extreme setbacks as a result of sequestration. Produced by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology along with 15 other science organizations, the report is based on a nationwide, online survey designed to measure the effects of the faltering federal investment on scientists and the research they are trying to conduct.
XSEDE supercomputing resources are powering new discoveries in biofuels research. XSEDE has allowed us not only to understand what the linker is doing but it has also allowed us to see how the hydrolysis reactions occur,” Beckham says
A public database dubbed MERIL (Mapping of the European Research Infrastructure Landscape) has been launched with the aim of providing a comprehensive inventory of high quality research infrastructures in Europe across all scientific domains, and accessible through an interactive online portal.
Object storage is not just about adding new storage functionality. It also fundamentally reduces the complexity of how applications interact with storage. A new eBook offers timely insight into this important new field.
In this video, Doug Burger from Microsoft Research presents: The Beast from Below—How Changes in the Hardware Ecosystem will Disrupt Computer Science. For decades, computer scientists have relied on steadily advancing hardware capabilities. Moore’s Law coupled with Dennard Scaling have improved von Neumann computing by many orders of magnitude. Notably, the underlying changes have been largely […]
Over at The Exascale Report, Mike Bernhardt brings us this new interview with Alan Gara, Intel’s Chief Exascale Architect. Formerly chief system architect for the three generations of BlueGene supercomputers at IBM, Gara has been out of the limelight since he left Big Blue in 2011. In this interview, he describes Intel’s vision for co-design […]
