Today DDN announced record performance on the Securities Technology Analysis Center (STAC) benchmark. Using the company’s EXAScaler storage solution, DDN set new public records for multiple workload types and sizes, including large and small workloads as well as I/O and compute-intensive workloads.
Colfax Research has published a new whitepaper entitled: Multi-Threading and Parallel Reduction. As part 1 of a 3-part educational series, the paper authored by Ryo Asai and Andrey Vladimirov focuses on optimization of applications for the Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors.
A new paper from ORNL’s Sparsh Mittal and Jeffrey Vetter seeks to change the mindset of researchers using GPUs. Entitled, “A Survey of CPU-GPU Heterogeneous Computing Techniques,” the paper contends that merely offloading computational tasks to GPUs is not optimal, instead, using both CPU and GPU can lead to potentially higher speedup.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is leading a collaborative project with industrial partners to standardize 3-D models to exchange information across design and manufacturing in one seamless “digital thread.” The Design to Manufacturing and Inspection Project will make use of a new international standard for incorporating computer-readable product and manufacturing information (PMI) into 3D models that do not require human interpretation of graphical depictions and data re-entry.
The oil and gas industry depends on simulation. In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Robert Roe explores how the technique can optimize the integrity of structures in extreme environments.
