In this video from the 2013 HPC User Forum, Burak Yenier presents: The HPC Experiment – Paving the way to HPC as a Service.
For the 2nd Round of the HPC experiment, we will apply the cloud computing service model to workloads on remote Cluster Computing resources in the areas of HPC, Computer Aided Engineering, and the Life Sciences.
In related news, the HPC Experiment site has just added an online exhibit area as one-stop interactive service directory for Cloud users and service providers with focus on High Performance Computing, Big Data, Digital Manufacturing, and Computational Life Sciences.
While we may not get to Exascale by 2020, ground-breaking compute technologies for the SKA telescope are already under development (without involvement of the U.S. Government, by the way). In this video from the 2013 HPC User Forum, Ronald P. Luijten from IBM Research presents: The IBM-DOME Microserver Demonstrator.
The computational and storage demands for the future Square Kilometer Array (SKA) radio telescope are signiﬁcant. Building on the experience gained with the collaboration between ASTRON and IBM with the Blue Gene based LOFAR correlator, ASTRON and IBM have now embarked on a public-private exascale computing research project aimed at solving the SKA computing challenges. This project, called DOME, investigates novel approaches to exascale computing, with a focus on energy efficient, streaming data processing, exascale storage, and nano-photonics. DOME will not only beneﬁt the SKA, but will also make the knowledge gained available to interested third parties via a Users Platform. The intention of the DOME project is to evolve into the global center of excellence for transporting, processing, storing and analyzing large amounts of data for minimal energy cost.”
In this slidecast, Scott Gnau from Teradata Labs presents: Teradata Intelligent Memory.
The introduction of Teradata Intelligent Memory allows our customers to exploit the performance of memory within Teradata Platforms, which extends our leadership position as the best performing data warehouse technology at the most competitive price,” said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. “Teradata Intelligent Memory technology is built into the data warehouse and customers don’t have to buy a separate appliance. Additionally, Teradata enables its customers to buy and configure the exact amount of in-memory capability needed for critical workloads. It is unnecessary and impractical to keep all data in memory, because all data do not have the same value to justify being placed in expensive memory.”
How does Intelligent Memory work? This animation video does a good job of making this advanced technology look simple.

Our Video Sunday feature continues with this rendition of David Bowie’s Space Oddity with vocals from Commander Chris Hadfield on board the international space station.
Hadfield’s son Evan writes: “He returns home in Soyuz in the early morning of the 14th, and this is his final video from Station. It is also, coincidentally, the first real music video ever recorded in space.”
Update: This video will soon surpass 7 million views You have to see this on an HD display. Incredible!
