Stan Ahalt, chair of the steering committee for the National Consortium for Data Science

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.

RSC PetaStream Powers Russian Academy of Sciences

rsc

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.

Video: Defending the Planet with Lustre

“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.”

Fault Trees

FaultTree

As datasets and simulations continue to increase in size and complexity, interactivity with the data should be maintained. It is important to understand how SIMD parallelism can be used when evaluating large fault tree expressions on a large volume of input.

Podcast: Supercomputing Synthetic Transporter Proteins

Rocker protein world's first engineered to transport ions (pink)

articleIn this podcast, Michael Grabe from the University of California – San Francisco describes how scientists designed completely from scratch a protein molecule that behaves like a slice of life.

Video: There and Back Again – The Battle of Lustre at LANL

lanl

“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.”
