Video: A Closer Look at the Kayla ARM-based Development Platform for CUDA and OpenGL

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 […]

Simulating Ancient Glacial Meltdowns gives Clues to Global Warming

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 […]

Slidecast: Grid Engine for ARMv7 Opens the Door for Energy Efficient Datacenters of the Future

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 Brings Enterprise Workload Management to ARM-based Servers

Univa Grid Engine ARM Beta enables ARM to perform tasks far more quickly and efficiently.

Video: Charm++ HPC with Migratable Objects

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).

Slidecast: Cycle Computing Runs Amazing 10,600 Instance on AWS for Big Pharma

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 […]

Podcast: Radio Free HPC Looks at the Chink in TOP500 Armor

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team quits griping about the horrible WiFi at SC12 and moves on to a truly big issue: Are LINPACK and HPCC benchmarks useful? Should they be constantly re-evaluated? And shouldn’t you really test machines on the kinds of workloads they’re designed to run? The catalyst for this discussion […]

CARMA Cluster Pairs ARM with GPUs in HPC Appliance

This week the Italian E4 Computer Engineering group launched the CARMA Cluster, a low-power HPC appliance that pairs an ARM processor with a Nvidia GPU. We felt an immediate connection with SECO in terms of experimentation and innovation,” said Simone Tinti, HPC Team Leader of E4 Computer Engineering. “The CARMA DEV kit on which our series is […]

U.S. Army Retreats from SC12

In response to new U.S. Army travel restrictions, the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) has pulled their booth from SC12. Sources close to the matter inform us that no U.S. Army personnel, including executive level decision-makers, will be allowed to travel to non-DoD conferences for the remainder of 2012. SC12 is not the only […]

Video: Optimizing Every Milliwatt with ARM-based Servers

In this video, Calxeda co-founder David Borland describes the Boston Viridis server platform, which optimizes ARM-based Calxeda EnergyCore technology to achieve unprecedented power performance. We don’t worry about just watts, we optimize every milliwatt in the system.” Learn more at the LowPowerServers blog. In related news, AMD is reportedly ready to announce a 64-bit ARM […]
