How Allinea Performance Reports Helps Jülich Scale their Applications

Bernd Mohr

“I have a few people helping out and tuning user applications, but we cannot serve all of our 500 users– we don’t have enough people. But if I have such a tool like Allinea Performance Reports, we tell them to try that out first and then if they have a problem, then they can do the first assessment themselves. Then we can use this tool to find the hard cases when my guys need to get involved. This is great.”

Interview: Celebrating Year One of Intel Parallel Computing Centers

bob

With ever-increasing parallelism in today’s processors, the need for code modernization is becoming more and more evident to organizations that need to compute to compete. Intel has responded to this dilemma by sponsoring Intel Parallel Computing Centers (Intel PCCs) around the globe. With an emphasis on doing modernization in an open, standard fashion that enables the best ROI, the Intel PCC program has shown remarkable progress in its first year. To learn more, we caught up Bob Burroughs, Director of Technical Computing Ecosystem Enabling at Intel.

SC14 #HPCMatters – Celebrating the Applications

David Lecomber, CEO, Allinea

The doors will soon open, the curtains will rise – and what really #HPCMatters will shine in the floodlights of New Orleans. It will be the applications of HPC that define this SC conference – where the life/business/world-impacting results are found. Applications are the sharp end of the mission. But who or what lies behind application successes?
