Video: Worldwide HPC Market & 2015-2019 Market Forecast

“Intersect360 Research’s annual HPC market model and forecast shows modest growth in 2014. Despite ongoing weakness in the public sector, commercial usage of HPC drove the market to $29.4 billion in 2014, a year-over-year growth of 2.8%. As applications for high-performance technologies expand, the market is projected to grow at a compound annual rate of 4.2% through 2019.”

UberCloud Publishes 3rd Compendium of HPC Cloud Case Studies

The UberCloud has published their 3rd Compendium of HPC Cloud Case Studies. Like its predecessors in 2013 and 2014, this year’s edition draws from a select group of projects undertaken as part of the UberCloud Experiment. “Our efforts are paying off. Based on the experience gained over the past several years, we have now increased the success rate of the individual experiments to almost 100%, as compared to 40% in 2013 and 60% in 2014.”

DDN Sets World Record STAC Performance

New Whitepaper: Multi-Threading and Parallel Reduction for Xeon Phi

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.

New Report Surveys CPU-GPU Heterogeneous Computing Techniques

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.

Smart Manufacturing with a Digital Thread

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.

FEA Simulations Bolster Designs Against Wind and Ice

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.
