GPUdb: A Distributed Database for Many-Core Devices

imgres

GPUdb is a scalable, distributed database with SQL-style query capability, capable of storing Big Data. Developers using the GPUdb API add data, and query the data with operations like select, group by, and join. GPUdb includes many operations not available in other “cloud database” offerings. GPUdb applies a new (patented) concept in database design that puts emphasis on leveraging the growing trend of many-core devices. By building GPUdb from the ground up around this new concept we are able to provide a system that merges the query needs of the traditional relational database developer with the scalability demands of the modern cloud-centric enterprise.

Bits, Bytes and BTUs: Warm Water Liquid Cooling at NREL

hammond

“NREL’s HPC center is home to the largest HPC system in the world dedicated to advancing renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. In addition, the HPC data center is one of the most energy efficient data centers in the world, featuring warm-water liquid cooling, and waste heat capture and re-use to reduce energy use and lower costs.”

Update on Trinity System Procurement and Plans

Trinity2

“Trinity is the first of ASC’s advanced technology systems. According to NNSA/ASC Program Office’s recently published ASC Computing Strategy document, advanced technology systems are “the vanguards of high performance computing platform market and incorporate features that, if successful, will become future commodity technologies. These large, first-of-a-kind systems will require application software modifications in order to take full advantage of exceptional capabilities offered by new technology.”

Multiphase Flow Modeling and Simulation: HPC-Enabled Capabilities Today and Tomorrow

igor

“The required technological and safety standards for future Gen-IV Reactors can only be achieved if advanced simulation capabilities become available, which combine high performance computing with the necessary level of modeling detail and high accuracy of predictions. Interaction between different numerical codes working on various scales (DNS, RaNS, solid/structure interaction) on different parts of multiphase three-dimensional transient problem (such as nuclear reactor accident scenario) gives the ability to develop new multiscale multi-field models and simulations in various areas of nuclear engineering.”
