In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Stan Ahalt from the National Consortium for Data Science discusses how and why the organization came into being.
Today RSC Group announced the installation of a MVS-10P MP Petastream supercomputer at the Joint Supercomputer Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (JSCC RAS). As is the first project in the Commonwealth of Independent States based on the latest Intel Xeon Phi 7120D coprocessors, the supercomputer weighs in at #20 of the Top50 list of the most powerful computing systems in Russia and CIS.
“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. Powered by Lustre, this distributed-memory SGI ICE cluster is connected with InfiniBand in a dual-plane hypercube technology.”
Today the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) announced a significant step forward in the delivery of Summit, the next-generation supercomputer IBM will deliver in 2017 to greatly advance the nation’s energy and science agenda. Following a formal call for proposals and a review process, ORNL revealed 13 science application readiness projects selected as part of the Center for Accelerated Application Readiness (CAAR) program.
“A little over a year ago LANL’s HPC Division purchased and fielded our first general purpose InfiniBand-based Lustre parallel file system. This new Lustre deployment, being the first of several similar planned deployments, gave us the opportunity to design a new storage backbone from the ground up and to gain in depth experience with and insight into Lustre technology in order to facilitate the installment and configuration of future systems.”
