The EKOPath compiler for High Performance Computing supports advanced loop optimizations, SIMD vectorization and many-core support. This release of EKOPath includes optimizations specifically for the ThunderX microarchitecture as well as tuning tailored to typical HPC workloads, including computationally complex and data intensive applications as well as OpenMP.
In this video from ISC 2015, Oliver Tennert from Transtec describes how the company’s Remote Visualization solutions are empowering customers with flexibility for their computing workloads. “We have a lot of customers from the scientific as well as financial or telecommunications areas, where analyzing huge amounts of data in the shortest period of time possible is a critical factor of success.”
“The AMD FirePro S9170 server GPU can accelerate complex workloads in scientific computing, data analytics, or seismic processing, wielding an industry-leading 32GB of memory. We designed the new offering for supercomputers to achieve massive compute performance while maximizing available power budgets.”
In this video, Purdue’s Dr. Gerry McCartney talks with Dan Olds about the University’s participation in the Student Cluster Competitions. “We want to make this commitment to our students. They enjoy it. We enjoy having them represent us. The departments feel good about it, and we get a little help from the vendors as well. Between all of those contributions, this turns out to be a great experience for us.”
In this video from ISC 2015, Bill Nitzberg from Altair describes why PBS Professional 13.0 is the biggest release yet for the company. “The industry needs to accomplish a lot in the coming years to deliver a working, useful exascale machine. PBS Pro is only one piece of the puzzle… but it’s an important piece. Job scheduling and workload management are core capabilities – a “must have” for every HPC system – ensuring HPC goals are met by enforcing site-specific use policies, enabling users to focus on science and engineering rather than IT, and optimizing utilization (of hardware, licenses, and power) to minimize waste.”
In this video from ISC 2015, Steve Branton from Asetek describes a series of high profile supercomputing upgrades that show the growing momentum of Asetek liquid cooling in the HPC market. “Asetek customers are using the company’s RackCDU Liquid Cooling for increased datacenter efficiency. See for yourself how Asetek successfully addresses datacenter demands at the University of Tromso, Mississippi State University, NREL, and elsewhere, while working with Cray, Fujitsu and other OEMs.”
Dr. Eng Lim Goh from SGI discusses important trends in HPC including pending changes coming to processors/accelerators, memory hierarchy, and interconnects. “SGI, the trusted leader in high performance computing, is focused on helping customers solve their most demanding business and technology challenges by delivering technical computing, Big Data analytics, cloud computing, and petascale storage solutions that accelerate time to discovery, innovation, and profitability.”
In this video, attendees discuss highlights from Day 3 of the ISC 2015 conference, including the conference’s industry track, exhibit floor, and vendor parties. The program includes short interviews with Ed Seidel from NCSA, Sverre Jarp from CERN, Horst Simon from LBNL, Jack Dongarra from the University of Tennessee, and Jürgen Kohler from Daimler AG.
NASA reports that it’s newly upgraded Pleiades supercomputer ranks number 11 on the July 2015 TOP500 list of the most powerful supercomputers. And while the LINPACK computing power of Pleiades jumped nearly 21 percent, its ranking at number 5 on the new HPCG benchmark list reflects its ability to tackle real world applications.
