As we head into the busy event season we like to call HPC March Madness, the past week has had its share of notable news items that didn’t make it to the Features page.
CloudyCluster allows you to quickly set up and configure a cluster on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to handle the most demanding HPC and Big Data tasks. You don’t need access to a data center and you don’t have to be an expert in the ins and outs of running computationally intensive workloads in a cloud environment.
With financial help from the Chinese government, Zimbabwe this week launched the Zimbabwe High Performance Computing Center (HPCC). Described as a major step forward for technological and economic development in the region, the new center be a “world-class hub” for high performance computing that will support high-end research in multiple disciplines.
The PDT team – a proprietary quantitative investment manager – is seeking a highly-talented senior HPC engineer. The Senior GRID Engineer will be a primary point of contact for the research teams using the GRID and will interface closely with the entire UNIX engineering group, senior software developers, vendors and the in-house monitoring team.
This article series is the first to explore the Seagate ClusterStor™ Secure Data Appliance, which is designed to address government and business enterprise need for collaborative and secure information sharing within a Multilevel Security (MLS) framework at Big Data and HPC Scale. Compared to prior methods, this provides vast cost savings in reduced capital equipment and networks as well as reduced operational complexity, floor space, weight, power, and cooling while satisfying today’s requirements for performance, collaborative secure data sharing, and availability.
“HPC is transforming our everyday lives, as well as our not-so-ordinary ones. From nanomaterials to jet aircrafts, from medical treatments to disaster preparedness, and even the way we wash our clothes; the HPC community has transformed the world in multifaceted ways. For its 27th anniversary, the annual SC Conference will return to Austin, TX, a city that continues to develop new ways of engaging our senses and incubating technology of all types, including supercomputing.”
At Supercomputing 2014 in New Orleans, Altair announced key features for PBS Professional 13.0, scheduled to launch in Q1 2015. The new version will take scalability to the next level, with massive jumps in supported system size, job dispatch speed and throughput; users will also benefit from key resilience, flexibility and scheduling improvements.
