Industry Analyst Rob Farber has launched his new TechEnablement Blog. With in-depth features and tutorials on HPC topics, TechEnablement is designed to enable you to work with the latest technology. As part of the new site, Farber has posted study guides on CUDA, OpenACC, OpenCL, and Intel Xeon Phi.
In this video from the OpenFabrics International Developer Workshop 2014, Paul Grun from OFA presents: Welcome, Introductions and Workshop Goals. “The 10th Annual OpenFabrics International Developer Workshop held on March 30-April 2 offered a multi-day event dedicated to the development and improvement of OpenFabrics Software (OFS). The Workshop kicked off Sunday, March 30, with a keynote from Dr. Thomas Sterling, Executive Associate Director and Chief Scientist at CREST. Presentations began the following morning covering topics focused on I/O for Exascale systems and Enterprise applications and included interest areas such as distributed computing, storage and data access and data analysis applications.”
In this episode of This Week in HPC, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research look at the Secure Data Appliance from Xyratex. After that, the Dynamic Duo discusses the highlights of their new HPC Budget Map Report.
Jeff Layton writes that memory bandwidth continues to trend upwards on the x86 roadmap, but not always. As a consequence, several ISV companies have recommend that their customers not use all of the cores on their processors, increasing the memory bandwidth per core used and presumably making overall performance better.

Over at LBNL, Jon Bashor has posted an excellent interview with Associate Laboratory Director Kathy Yelick on the future of supercomputing. I think the scientific process is about to undergo a transformation, in the same way that the Internet has combined with web content and search engines to revolutionize every aspect of our lives. Far from the old model of the individual scientist working alone in a laboratory, scientists will be able to combine their own data with that of other scientists, re-using and re-analyzing data, and making use of sophisticated mathematical analyses to help discover relationships across data sets.
