Today Fujitsu announced that the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics [WTCHG] at the University of Oxford is using the company’s HPC systems to support the genetics research of 25 groups and more than 100 researchers.

Utilizing Cloud HPC Resources for CAE Simulations

rescale

“As cloud resources increase, users should be cognizant of the HPC platforms available in the cloud. Scalable and customizable resources are readily available, however, security, ease of use, and full integration of simulation software are important factors to consider when choosing to run analyses remotely. Cloud resources designed for engineering and science CAE simulations allow users to leverage high performance computing to fully explore the design space and develop innovative products. In this presentation, Joris will discuss the cloud HPC market trends, CAE simulations using cloud HPC, cloud software integration for CAE use, security around HPC cloud environments, data management and collaboration.”

Better Healthcare with High performance Parallelized Genomics Analysis

joe

Over at Scalability.org, Joe Landman writes that we are on the cusp of a healthcare revolution that will be sparked by high performance parallelized genomics analysis. Much of the awesomeness is in the algorithm, a massively parallel system that is described in depth here: “Churchill: an ultra-fast, deterministic, highly scalable and balanced parallelization strategy for the discovery of human genetic variation in clinical and population-scale genomics.”

Video: Preparing OpenSHMEM for Exascale

ornl

“Summit is Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s next high performance supercomputer system that will be based on a many core/GPU hybrid architecture. In order to prepare OpenSHMEM for future systems, it is important to enhance its programming model to enable efficient utilization of the new hardware capabilities (e.g. massive multithreaded systems, accesses different type memories, next generation of interconnects, etc). This session will present recent advances in the area of OpenSHMEM extensions, implementations, and tools.”
