Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Top500_logoToday the Prometeus GmbH group in Germany re-launched the TOP500 site. The website has been redesigned to provide readers with year-round content regarding events and news in the HPC community as well as provide insights into industry and technology trends.

The new site will introduce a contemporary design. In particular, it will incorporate several new features to provide visitors one-click access to key pages like the current TOP500 list plus an overview of all number one systems over the last two decades. Another new feature that readers will find useful is a webpage devoted to detailed statistics about the current list.

All in all, the TOP500 project organizers are committed to providing site visitors with richer content delivered in a more user-friendly format. This includes additional news updates, blogs as well as feature stories.

The TOP500 list is updated twice yearly, coinciding with ISC High Performance, formerly known as the International Supercomputing Conference, in Germany, and the Supercomputing Conference (SC) in the US. The next list, which is the 44th in the series, will be announced at SC14 in New Orleans on November 18.

Cooperation with Intersect360 Research

Prometeus GmbH is also very pleased to announce its exclusive partnership with Intersect360 Research, a leading market research organization that focuses on the high performance computing industry.

From its ongoing end-user research studies covering HPC and related topics, such as big data and cloud computing, Intersect360 Research will select market research highlights for TOP500 readers. Reflecting the theme of the TOP500, these research highlights will include “TOP” lists that spotlight HPC market leadership in areas such as storage, middleware, and applications.

As part of the collaboration, we have now added audio content to the site, namely the popular weekly Intersect360 Research podcast “This Week in HPC” with HPC market analysts, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell,” said Thomas Meuer, Managing Director of Prometeus GmbH.

Their podcast, which features candid discussions of the latest HPC news and happenings, will be available on as a weekly feature starting this week.

TOP500 has long been a powerful brand in the HPC industry, and we’re excited to see it take on a more prominent role,” said Addison Snell, CEO of Intersect360 Research. “We are thrilled to contribute our research and analysis to help make TOP500 an alternative source of information for leaders in the HPC industry.”

At insideHPC, we have been happy to host the podcast for This Week in HPC for the past year, and we wish them well with their new media partners at TOP500.
