Apply Now for Summer of HPC 2017 in Barcelona

“The PRACE Summer of HPC is an outreach and training program that offers summer placements at top High Performance Computing centers across Europe to late-stage undergraduates and early-stage postgraduate students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe will be selected to participate. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work and produce a report and a visualization or video of their results.”

Supermicro Showcases Versatile HPC Solutions at SC16

In this video from SC16, Don Clegg from Supermicro describes the company’s broad range of HPC solutions. “Innovation is at the core of Supermicro product development and benefits the HPC community with first-to-market integration of advanced technology such as our 1U with four and 4U with eight Pascal P100 SXM2 GPUs or 4U with ten PCI-e GPU systems, hot-swap U.2 NVMe, upcoming fabric technologies like Red Rock Canyon and PCI-E switches, as well as new architecture designs like our new high-density BigTwin system design.”

GPUs & Deep Learning in the Spotlight for Nvidia at SC16

In this video from SC16, Roy Kim from Nvidia describes how the company is bringing in a new age of AI with accelerated computing for Deep Learning applications. “Deep learning is the fastest-growing field in artificial intelligence, helping computers make sense of infinite amounts of data in the form of images, sound, and text. Using multiple levels of neural networks, computers now have the capacity to see, learn, and react to complex situations as well or better than humans. This is leading to a profoundly different way of thinking about your data, your technology, and the products and services you deliver.”

HPE Apollo 6500 for Deep Learning

“With up to eight high performance NVIDIA GPUs designed for maximum transfer bandwidth, the HPE Apollo 6500 is purpose-built for HPC and deep learning applications. Its high ratio of GPUs to CPUs, dense 4U form factor and efficient design enable organizations to run deep learning recommendation algorithms faster and more efficiently, significantly reducing model training time and accelerating the delivery of real-time results, all while controlling costs.”

NVLink Speeds Deep Learning on New OpenPOWER Servers

Over at the IBM System Blog, Sumit Gupta writes that the company’s new IBM Power System 822LC with Nvidia Tesla P100 GPUs is already demonstrating impressive performance on Deep Learning training applications. “A single S822LC for HPC with four NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs is 2.2 times faster reaching 50 percent accuracy in AlexNet than a server with four NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPUs!”
