Intel in Champaign, Illinois is seeking an HPC Cluster Systems Engineer in our Job of the Week.
The University of New Mexico’s Center for Advanced Research Computing is renovating its principle machine room in order to install a new supercomputer. The new 3000-core system will be used for bioinformatics and bionomic research, combining computer science, statistics, mathematics and engineering to study and process biological data.
This week Seagate and Supermicro announced a preconfigured SQL server reference architecture for data warehouse deployments, as part of Microsoft’s SQL Server 2014 Fast Track program.
The Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Intel have renewed their collaboration research agreement at the Intel and BSC Exascale Laboratory in Barcelona. Now funded through 2017, the Intel and BSC Exascale Lab in Barcelona focuses on software and extraordinary levels of parallelism that will be needed to use future Intel-architecture-based supercomputers.
Today MEGWARE in Germany announced that the company will celebrate its 25th anniversary in Februray. And while the company is now known for its HPC know-how, it’s humble beginnings actually go back to a garage-based business that got it’s start a few months after the fall of the Berlin wall.
“While HPC is being pulled in this direction by external market forces, it became clear at the US Supercomputing Conference, SC14, held this year in New Orleans in late November, that the technologies underpinning technical high-performance computing are now changing in response. Paradoxically, the announcement of the largest US Government investment in technical supercomputing for many years will transform business computing.”
“Kruger National Park was the perfect setting for the conservation-themed meeting titled “Towards an Energy-Efficient HPC System,” but the environment proved to be extra challenging for the contest, with occasional power outages and a saturated Wi-Fi network. The playing field was level, however, and the conditions prepared the students to be persistent and to not take anything for granted–good lessons for life, in general! Eight teams with 32 competitors were selected in Sept. from among 84 applicants.”
By October 2015, the capacity of each of NOAA’s two operational supercomputers will jump to 2.5 petaflops, for a total of 5 petaflops – a nearly tenfold increase from the current capacity. “NOAA is America’s environmental intelligence agency; we provide the information, data, and services communities need to become resilient to significant and severe weather, water, and climate events,” said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA’s Administrator.
The adoption of computer aided engineering (CAE) powered by high performance computing (HPC) is one of key factors fueling the re-birth of manufacturing. SGI offers an HPC environment that is ideal for CAE solutions. This article is part of 5 article series on how HPC is helping to fuel the growth in manufacturing.
