Using Surrogate Benchmarks to Project HPC Application Performance

val

“Computer science and engineering performance projections of HPC applications onto various hardware platforms are important for hardware vendors and HPC users. The projections aid hardware vendors in the design of future systems and help HPC users with system procurement. This lecture presents a method for projecting the performance of HPC applications using surrogate benchmarks and the application performance profile obtained on one base system.”

This simulation visualizes a coaxial jet flow as it can be found in the exhaust of modern jet engines that are used for aircraft propulsion. The visualization highlights the flow instability process and the transition from laminar to turbulent flow. Intensive mixing between the heated primary jet and the cold bypass flow lead to strong noise radiation.

Increasing the Efficiency of Your GPU-enabled Cluster with rCUDA

rcud

“The use of GPUs to accelerate applications is mainstream nowadays, but their adoption in current high performance computing clusters is primarily impaired by the trend of including accelerators in all the nodes of the cluster, as this presents several drawbacks related with increased costs. In this talk we introduce the remote GPU virtualization mechanism, intended to address the drawbacks of GPU computing. The rCUDA remote GPU virtualization framework will also be presented.”

Computational Thinking is Computational Learning

In this video from the Scientific Python Conference Prof. Lorena Barba gives the opening keynote, addressing the pedagogical value of interactive computing in engineering education.

2013 HPC Market Update: A Year of Contradictions

addison2

“We will describe the company’s newly updated Worldwide HPC Total Market Model and Forecast. With Intel up, server vendors down, and end users everywhere in-between, what does the HPC market really look like? What happens with the number one server vendor has a bad year, while the number three server vendor has a good one? And what do we make of HPC storage, the 3.4 Billion Euro ($4.6 Billion) growth market that no one seems to want? Intersect360 Research has the comprehensive answer, including the current and forecast effects of cloud, big data, and the ultrascale market.”
