Pros and Cons of HPC Virtualization

Deepak Khosla, President, X-ISS

In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, X-ISS President Deepak Khosla argues that while enterprise computing makes extensive use of virtualization, it could make a big difference in HPC as well if it is introduced properly.

John Biddiscombe (CSCS) Demos In-situ Visualization at SC14

Use of the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors has allowed DUG to quickly adapt its existing code and pass this value on to its customers. Overall, the new environment provides DUG with an added compute capacity of roughly six peak petaflops.

EPiGRAM to Host Exacale Workshop at SC14

EPiGRAM-logo_small

EPiGRAM is an EC-funded FP7 project on exascale computing. The aim of the EPiGRAM project is to prepare Message Passing and PGAS programming models for exascale systems by fundamentally addressing their main current limitations. The concepts developed will be tested and guided by two applications in the engineering and space weather domains chosen from the suite of codes in current EC exascale projects.
