With the release of the latest TOP500 list last week, the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) reports continued leadership in high performance computing in Europe.
This is getting to sound familiar. “For the third consecutive list, Tianhe-2 remains world’s No. 1 system with a performance of 33.86 Petaflops on the Linpack benchmark. The US entries from Titan and Sequoia come in at number two and three, respectively, followed by the formidable K computer in Japan coming in at number four.”
“FDR InfiniBand delivers today the highest performance for high-performance computing, cloud, Web 2.0, database and storage applications. Our interconnect solutions connect nearly half of the world’s Petaflop systems, demonstrating the high system efficiency and scalability that our interconnect provides. We continue with our development efforts to bring the next generation of 100Gb/s interconnect solutions, which are expected to be released in 2014/2015 time frame.”
The first-ever Irish Supercomputer List was released today with a mission to promote, advocate and advance HPC on the island. I
