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.
“Named after the astronomical open star cluster of the same name, Pleiades, one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, represents NASA’s state-of-the-art technology for meeting the agency’s supercomputing requirements, enabling NASA scientists and engineers to conduct modeling and simulation for NASA missions.”
NSF is seeking proposals that would explore new norms and practices in the research community for software and data citation and attribution.
“At this point, I think it actually really makes sense for the community as a whole to fork Lustre, rename it OpenSFS, remove all the branding IP, and make it GPL/MIT/BSD licensed. Have OpenSFS own the copyrights/IP, have vendors sign up to support it. Sort of like the Linux foundation. And what CentOS does with RedHat.” [Read More...]
“This was a big year for us as we closed with many milestones in what I call a Significant Paradigm shift in Parallelism. The most significant milestone was that the OpenMP Consortium has released OpenMP 4.0 in 2013 with new parallelism features that are productive, portable, and performant across C, C++, and Fortran.” [Read More...]
