Miha’s Retrospective on Grid Engine

Clipped from: (share this clip) Sun Alum Miha Ahronovitz writes that Grid Engine has developed many devoted fans over the years. If you want a metaphor, the Volkswagen Beetle created the cult car that made successful the entire company. Similarly, Grid Engine can be viewed as a not perfect, but fascinating product. It can […]

Contest: What Would You Do With a Petaflop?

Clipped from: (share this clip) To many of the HPC users I’ve talked to, the idea of an Exascale computer is not nearly as exciting as the advent of affordable Petaflop computing. To this end, Nvidia’s Sumit Gupta writes that the company is launching a contest to see what you would do with a […]

Registration Open for Accelerated HPC Symposium & GTC 12

Clipped from: (share this clip) Registration is now open for the Accelerated HPC Symposium, May 16-17, 2012. Hosted by Los Alamos National Labs, the event will be co-located with the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, CA.

Argonne Supercomputer Run to Help Explain Antimatter Mass in the Universe

An international team of scientists has, for the first time, simulated the decay process of a kaon into two pions with extreme precision. The calculation took 54 million processor hours on the IBM BlueGene/P supercomputer at the Argonne National Lab and will help researchers explain why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe. […]
