Dell Powers RENCI Supercomputer Tracking Hurricane Matthew

RENCI’s Dell-powered supercomputer is working overtime to model the storm surge that Hurricane Matthew could bring to communities along the Eastern Seaboard. Named Hatteras, the 150-node M610 Dell cluster runs the ADCIRC storm surge model every six hours when a hurricane is active. “We are working on doing storm surge predictions the same way that meteorologists develop predictions for rain and wind speeds.”

Registration Opens for Dell HPC Community Event at SC16

Registration is now open for the Dell HPC Community event at SC16. The event takes place Nov. 12 at the Radisson Hotel in Salt Lake City. “The Dell HPC Community events feature keynote presentations by HPC experts and working group sessions to discuss best practices in the use of Dell HPC Systems.”

Dell Powers New HPC Cluster at the University of Alabama at Birmingham

Today the University of Alabama at Birmingham unveiled a new supercomputer powered by Dell. With a peak performance of 110 Teraflops, the system is 10 times faster than its predecessor. “With their new Dell EMC HPC cluster, UAB researchers will have the compute and storage they need to aggressively research, uncover and apply knowledge that changes the lives of individuals and communities in many areas, including genomics and personalized medicine.”

Video: IDC HPC Market Update

Earl Joseph presented this talk at the HPC User Forum in Austin. “HPC is still expected to be a strong growth market going forward. IDC is forecasting a 7.7 percent growth from 2015 to 2019. We’re projecting the 2019 HPC Market will exceed $15 Billion.”

Unleashing the performance and scalability of the Lustre Parallel File System
