A new Kickstarter project is looking to build a parallel computer that you can afford to use at home. With the MicroPod, you will be able to “stand up” a parallel computer using inexpensive commodity hardware, or even use the images as VMs to run a completely virtual development environment. Completing this project will dramatically […]

It’s me again–Dr. Lewey Anton. I’ve been commissioned by insideHPC to track HPC People on the Move. It has been a while since I’ve posted, but there are some interesting developments today. Michael Feldman, long-time editor of HPCWire has joined Intersect360 Research as a Senior Analyst. Having worked closely with Michael for the past six […]
In this video, Mark Henderson and Mike Pehlan from NetApp demonstrate how Dynamic Disk Pools enable performance, efficiency, and scalability. Watch as they cause a double-drive failure on two separate storage systems and then compare the RAID-6 system with a three-day rebuild to a system with Dynamic Disk Pools that can rebuild in around 18 […]
In this video, Falk Herwig, Associate Professor, Astronomy and Physics at the University of Victoria presents: HPC Driving New Discoveries in Fluid Dynamics.
Over at Datacenter Knowledge, John Rath writes that Supermicro launched new 2U and 4U/Tower platforms that maximize processing power and precisely tune hardware and firmware to provide lower latency than previous models, while still maintaining high reliability. The company debuted the systems at the High Frequency Trading World event this week in New York. Advanced […]
In this video, Glen Otero from Dell discusses his Birds of Feather session on Personalized Medicine at SC12. The company is working with researchers to enable faster, more cost-effective genome sequencing to enable better healthcare for us all.
In this video from Adaptive Computing booth at SC12, Andrei Kaliazin from the University of Cambridge presents: COSMOS – Fundamental Cosmology, Dark Energy, and the Cosmic Microwave Sky. The COSMOS Supercomputer Consortium, founded by Stephen Hawking and part of the Science and Technology Facilities Council DiRAC High Performance Computing facility, has chosen Moab HPC Suite […]
In this video from SC12, Michael Wolfe from The Portland Group discusses the origins of the OpenACC standard for programming directives in GPUs. He also weighs in on the recent OpenMP 4.0 technical report, which proposes to incorporate OpenACC directives into OpenMP 4.0 sometime in 2013.
In this video from SC12, Dr. Harold (Skip) Garner from the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute describes how Big Data I/O is required to crunch Genomics data in the fight against cancer. Working to bring personalized medicine to the masses, the Institute uses DDN storage to store and compare genomes in a high bandwidth configuration.
Microsoft’s Bill Hilf writes that the company’s new new instance configurations of Azure with the Microsoft HPC Pack 2012 are designed to be an optimal platform for your Big Compute applications. As part of our commitment to Big Compute we are announcing hardware offerings designed to meet customers’ needs for high performance computing. We will […]
