The insideHPC Guide to Flexible HPC

Organizations that implement high-performance computing (HPC) technologies have a wide range of requirements. From small manufacturing suppliers to national research institutions, using significant computing technologies is critical to creating innovative products and leading-edge research. No two HPC installations are the same. For maximum return, budget, software requirements, performance and customization all must be considered before installing and operating a successful environment. To learn more down load this white paper.

Many-Task Computing for Grids

Many-task computing aims to bridge the gap between two computing paradigms, high throughput computing and high performance computing.

Supercomputers for All

Supercomputers may date back to the 1960s, but it is only recently that their vast processing power has begun to be harnessed by industry and commerce, to design safer cars, build quieter aeroplanes, speed up drug discovery, and subdue the volatility of the financial markets. The need for powerful computers is growing, says Catherine Rivière […]

Research for New Technology Using Supercomputers

This paper presents our approach to research and development in relation to four applications in which utilization of simulations in super-large-scale computation systems is expected to serve useful purposes.

Science and Industry using Supercomputers

This paper is intended for people interested in High Performance Computing (HPC) in general, in the performance development of HPC systems from the beginning in the 1970s and, above all, in HPC applications in the past, today and tomorrow. Readers do not need to be supercomputer experts.

Weather and Ocean Modeling with Super Computers

The practical impact of weather, climate and ocean prediction on the world’s population and economy drives the usage of high performance computing (HPC) for earth system modeling. The socioeconomic impacts of improved predictive capabilities are well-recognized by scientists as well as government leaders. The earth’s environment plays an important role in shaping economies and infrastructures, and touches upon nearly every aspect of our daily lives, including recreational activities, food supplies and energy resources.

Dell HPC General Research Computing

This white paper provides information on the latest Dell HPC General Research Computing Solution based on the Dell 13th Generation servers. The solution supports new generation Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 based PowerEdge servers targeted to provide optimal performance and dense compute power.

Drop Testing with Dell, Intel and Altair

Impact analysis or drop testing is one of the most important stages of product design and development, and software that can simulate this testing accurately yields dramatic cost and time-to-market benefits for manufacturers. Dell, Intel and Altair have collaborated to analyze a virtual drop test solution with integrated simulation and optimization analysis, delivering proven gains in speed and accuracy. With this solution, engineers can explore more design alternatives

Dell HPC NFS Storage Solution

This white paper describes the Dell NFS Storage Solution – High Availability configurations (NSS6.0-HA) with Dell PowerEdge 13th generation servers. It presents a comparison among all available NSS-HA offerings so far, and provides performance results for a configuration with a storage system providing 480TB of raw capacity.
