Celebrating Two Years of Blue Waters Supercomputing at NCSA

sidebar_140407_kirk_panel2

This week NCSA celebrated two years of Blue Waters supercomputing in an event convened by U.S. Senator Mark Kirk. The powerful Cray supercomputer is used by scientists and engineers across the country to tackle challenging research for the benefit of science and society.

Video: eScience Training and Education in Sweden

SeSE

“This talk will give an overview of training and graduate education initiatives in Sweden in the eScience and high performance computing areas and show why these are important but also different. Lessons learned from giving courses at six super computer centers and current and future courses will be discussed.”

Video: Applications Performance Optimizations – Best Practices

Pak Lui

“To achieve good scalability performance on the HPC scientific applications typically involves good understanding of the workload though performing profile analysis, and comparing behaviors of using different hardware which pinpoint bottlenecks in different areas of the HPC cluster. In this session, a selection of HPC applications will be shown to demonstrate various methods of profiling and analysis to determine the bottleneck, and the effectiveness of the tuning to improve on the application performance.”

Video: Datacenter Computers – Modern Challenges in CPU Design

Dick Sites, Senior Staff Engineer at Google

“Computers used as datacenter servers have usage patterns that differ substantially from those of desktop or laptop computers. We discuss four key differences in usage and their first-order implications for designing computers that are particularly well-suited as servers: data movement, thousands of transactions per second, program isolation, and measurement underpinnings. Maintaining high-bandwidth data movement requires coordinated design decisions throughout the memory system, instruction-issue system, and even instruction set.”

In this video, Vadim Karpusenko from Colfax International describes the software tools for developing applications for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. The session begins with software that is necessary to boot coprocessors and to run pre-compiled executables on them.

Video: CloudBroker – Bringing HPC to the Cloud

HPC Cloud

“Cloud computing provides pay-per-use access to scalable compute resources. However, IaaS and HPC-on-demand offerings are still often complex. Instead, the CloudBroker Platform and AppCenter create a SaaS layer on top of the compute resources. In the CloudSME EU project, this is used to develop a simulation platform for manufacturing and engineering.”
