We don’t get the chance to announce new players in the HPC space very often, especially from our hometown of Portland. Today newcomers nCore HPC announced the BrownDwarf Y-class supercomputer, a heterogeneous ARM- and DSP-based system designed for green high performance computing. With its unique parallel computing architecture and a high performance, low latency interconnect, […]

Nvidia made waves in March with the announcement of the Kayla development platform for CUDA on ARM processors. Next week at ISC’13 in Germany, E4 Computer Engineering will demonstrate its new, low-power E4 ARKA SERIES, a Kayla device equipped with an Nvidia Tegra Quad-Core ARM A9 CPU as well as an Nvidia GPU. For the […]
Today the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) announced plans to deploy its next-gen ARM prototype cluster for HPC in July. Powered by ARM Cortex-A9, Nvidia Tesla K20 GPUs, and Mellanox QDR InfiniBand, the hybrid supercomputer will be named Pedraforca. By using InfiniBand, Pedraforca enables direct GPU-to-GPU communication through RDMA on ARM. It features a low-power Nvidia […]
In this special guest feature, Dan Olds from Gabriel Consulting writes that the Barcelona Supercomputer Center is making a big bet on ARM processing for HPC. Over the last few years, we’ve seen a steadily growing buzz surrounding the use of ARM chips in PCs, servers, and supercomputers. Here at GTC 2013, that buzz is […]
In this video from the GPU Technology Conference, Ian Buck from Nvidia describes the new Kayla development platform for ARM-based CUDA and OpenGL. “Introducing the Kayla Platform for computing on the ARM architecture – where supercomputing meets mobile computing. The Kayla platform is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra Quad-core ARM processor and a Kepler GPU […]
Melting icecaps are not a new phenomenon, but the causes of past deglaciations has remained a mystery. Now, researchers are using ORNL supercomputers to pinpoint the last deglaciation on planet Earth. The simulations, conducted by Feng He and Zhengyu Liu of UW-Madison and Bette Otto-Bliesner of NCAR, help to recreate the climate during the first […]
In this slidecast, Gary Tyreman from Univa discusses the new Univa Grid Engine for ARMv7 Release. Driven by the demand for new datacenter services to support mobile and cloud computing, ARM will continue to gain in-roads into the datacenter server market because of the low-power and energy efficient design of SOC’s based on ARM’s technology”, […]
Univa Grid Engine ARM Beta enables ARM to perform tasks far more quickly and efficiently.
In this video, Laxmikant Kale from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign presents: Charm++ HPC with Migratable Objects. The presentation was recorded at the HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference 2013. Download the slides (PDF).
In this slidecast, Jason Stowe from Cycle Computing describes how the company spun up a 10,600 instance HPC cluster in 2 hours with CycleCloud on Amazon EC2. Using just one Chef 11 server and one purpose in mind, this on-the-fly cluster was used to accelerate life science research relating to a cancer target for a […]
