  • How HPC is aiding the fight against COVID-19

    In this special guest feature, Dr. Rosemary Francis writes that HPC is playing a massive part in the fight against Covid-19 through modeling, genomics, and drug discovery. “Thanks to the work in labs and HPC centres around the world, we now know that the molecular mechanism of the SARS-CoV-2 entry is via a lock and key effect; a spike on the outside of the virus acts as a key to unlock an ACE2 receptor protein on the human cell.” [READ MORE…]

  • Novel Liquid Cooling Technologies for HPC

    In this special guest feature, Robert Roe from Scientific Computing World writes that increasingly power-hungry and high-density processors are driving the growth of liquid and immersion cooling technology. “We know that CPUs and GPUs are going to get denser and we have developed technologies that are available today which support a 500-watt chip the size of a V100 and we are working on the development of boiling enhancements that would allow us to go beyond that.” [READ MORE…]

  • Perlmutter supercomputer to include more than 6000 NVIDIA A100 processors

    NERSC is among the early adopters of the new NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU processor announced by NVIDIA this week. More than 6,000 of the A100 chips will be included in NERSC’s next-generation Perlmutter system, which is based on an HPE Cray Shasta supercomputer that will be deployed at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory later this year. “Nearly half of the workload running at NERSC is poised to take advantage of GPU acceleration, and NERSC, HPE, and NVIDIA have been working together over the last two years to help the scientific community prepare to leverage GPUs for a broad range of research workloads.” [READ MORE…]

  • Video: NVIDIA Launches Ampere Data Center GPU

    In this video, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang announces the first GPU based on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the NVIDIA A100. Their fastest GPU ever is in now in full production and shipping to customers worldwide. “NVIDIA A100 GPU is a 20X AI performance leap and an end-to-end machine learning accelerator – from data analytics to training to inference. For the first time, scale-up and scale-out workloads can be accelerated on one platform. NVIDIA A100 will simultaneously boost throughput and drive down the cost of data centers.” [READ MORE…]

I will than talk about the main challenges for the application of deep learning in cutting-edge weather forecasts and suggest approaches to improve usability in the future.” [READ MORE…]

  • Video: Fighting COVID-19 with HPE’s Sentinel supercomputer through the cloud

    At HPE, we believe in being a force for good, so when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, HPE quickly made available supercomputing resources, along with a dedicated technical staff, free of charge to help scientists tackle complex research. That’s when we met Dr. Baudry and set him and his team up on HPE’s Sentinel supercomputer, which can perform 147 trillion floating point operations per second and store 830 terabytes of data. Sentinel – which is as fast as the earth’s entire population performing 20,000 calculations per second – is significantly accelerating discovery and saving months of research time and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
