“We wanted to send out a special thank you to Seagate for showing such a strong commitment to Lustre. Their announcement at LUG – intent to transfer ownership of lustre.org to the community – is great news.”

Allinea Software Tools Speed Computing at University of Nebraska

schorrcenter

The Holland Computing Center HPC support team at the University of Nebraska is using Allinea Software’s unified debugging and profiling tools to help users speed up their scientific computing. With the need to support four clusters and total of 20,000 compute cores, Nebraska’s HPC support team provides assistance to many users of large MPI applications […]

Why the Industry Nees More HPC Performance Tool Developers

Dr. Ing. Bernd Mohr

Over at the ISC Blog, Bernd Mohr writes that HPC programmers are still in demand thanks to the complexity of today’s hybrid supercomputers. So, in reality programming HPC systems is still very complex and if you manage to create a correctly working program, it does not automatically mean you get a very efficiently working program. […]

Penguin Ups GPU Density with Relion 2808GT

relion

“The Relion 2808GT was designed to deliver maximum compute power with a minimal datacenter footprint and maximum efficiency. The system supports eight GPUs or coprocessors in two rack units and provides a higher compute density that any other server on the market. Configured with eight NVidia GPUs or eight Intel Xeon Phi co-processors a single Relion 2808GT can achieve over 8TFLOPs of double precision floating point peak performance.”

OpenFabrics Interfaces Working Group Architecture

NVM is coming. In this series of videos from the OpenFabrics International Developer Workshop 2014, Jim Ryan and Doug Voight describe Non-Volatile Memory as a disruptive technology for HPC.

Thomas Sterling Presents: ParalleX Execution Model for Exascale Astrophysics

Thomas Sterling

“This talk describes an experimental methodology, ParalleX, that addresses Exascale challenges through a change in the fundamental model of parallel computation from that of the communicating sequential processes (e.g., MPI) to an innovative synthesis of concepts involving message-driven work-queue execution in the context of a global address space.”
