In this video from SC13, Arnon Friedman from Texas Instruments describes how TI multicore DSP processors rule the roost for HPC computing at under 10 Watts. As an example of what’s possible, the company showcased the BrownDwarf DSP + ARM Supercomputer from nCore in the first public demonstration of an ARM Cortex-A15+Accelerator (DSP) high performance system.
Display Manager is a web-based environment for remote visualization of very Big Data arising from large HPC simulations. “Display Manager eliminates the need for massive data movement across networks by leveraging NVIDIA GRID GPU’s for server side remote visualization. This represents a major milestone in the path toward complete simulation lifecycle management.” Watch the demo to see it in action.
As science drives a rapidly growing need for storage, existing environments face increasing pressure to expand capabilities while controlling costs. Many researchers, scientists and engineers find that they are outgrowing their current system, but fear their organizations may be too small to cover the cost and support needed for more storage. Join these experts for a lively discussion on how you can take control and solve the HPC data deluge.
TACC has announced that the center’s new Rodeo cloud computing offering is available for researchers that need large-scale resources, but prefer a virtualized, on-demand environment.
In this video from SC13, Torben Kling-Petersen from Xyratex describes the company’s new Grid RAID and ClusterStor 9000 data storage technologies. Grid RAID delivers up to 400% faster drive rebuild time to repair times needed to maintain peak performance while supporting the latest high capacity drives.
A call for proposals for HPC cloud-based application experiments has been issued by the Fortissimo Project. Fortissimo is a new initiative launched in Europe specifically designed to assist manufacturers – especially SMEs – that have not yet realized the benefits of modeling and simulation (M&S) to boost their competitiveness.
Today Allinea Software announced that five of Europe’s newest multi-petaflop Cray XC30 supercomputers are using the Allinea DDT parallel debugging tool.
