Video: ICEOTOPE Showcases Innovative Liquid Cooling at SC14

iceotope

In this video from SC14, Keith Deakin from ICEOTOPE describes the company’s innovative cooling solutions for HPC. “Iceotope is the home of cutting edge liquid cooling technology. Its patented technology offers high density IT, reduces energy consumption and improves computing performance. Iceotope systems have no fans, are virtually silent in operation, and can be positioned in populated or hostile environments in addition to the traditional data centre. Iceotope’s mission is to reduce energy usage, improve performance and drive down the costs associated with high performance computing.”

Slidecast: QNIBTerminal Plus InfiniBand – Containerized MPI Workloads

solutions_trans

In this slidecast, Christian Kniep presents: QNIBTerminal Plus InfiniBand – Containerized MPI Workloads. “QNIB Solutions (early on called ‘QNIB Inc’) derives from the first project Christian did during his B.Sc. report, a InfiniBand monitoring suite. For the sake of the report is was named ‘OpenIBPM: Open Source InfiniBand Performance Monitoring’. Afterwards Christian renamed it to match his last name (Kniep): ‘QNIB: Qualified Networking with InfiniBand’. Since then QNIB becomes a pet project’s theme.”
