Adept Project Looks at Using Software to Conserve Energy

adept

In this special guest feature, Tom Wilkie from Scientific Computing World writes that software approaches to energy efficiency in HPC may yield unexpected improvements in the hardware of next-generation mobile phone networks. “Adept, a European research project addressing the energy-efficient use of parallel technologies, is expected to release a set of benchmarks that it has developed to characterize the energy consumption of programming models on different architectures.”

DEEP Project Moves Towards Exascale at ISC 2015

“With this delivery, the DEEP consortium can leverage a supercomputer with a peak performance of 505 TFlop/s and an efficiency of over 3 GFlop/s per Watt. The Eurotech hot water cooling solution allows for additional permanent gains in energy efficiency at data centre level as it guarantees year-round free cooling in all climate zones. The system includes a matching innovative software stack, and six carefully selected grand challenge simulation applications have been optimized to show the full performance potential of the system.”

EXTOLL Rolls Out TOURMALET Network Chip at ISC 2015

Last week at ISC 2015, EXTOLL from Germany introduced its TOURMALET 100G network chip and PCIe Board.

Applications for the DEEP and DEEP-ER Projects

“To evaluate the DEEP concept and to prove its programmability, selected applications are ported to the DEEP system. They serve to test the system, to compare its performance with respect to standard architectures, and even to propose improvements to the system’s hardware and software.”

A Shining Star Lights Up the Road to Exascale

While we have more than our share of stories talking about frustration and politics negatively impacting the race to exascale, there are several bright spots that deserve a round of applause.

One such shining star, the DEEP project, comes from the Jülich Research Centre, nestled in the heart of the Stetternich Forest in Jülich.

DEEP is one of the European responses to the Exascale challenge.
