Full Roundup: SC19 Booth Tour Videos from insideHPC

Now that SC19 is behind us, it’s time to gather our booth tour videos in one place. Throughout the course of the show, insideHPC talked to dozens of HPC innovators showcasing the very latest in hardware, software, and cooling technologies.

Verne Global Offers Sustainable HPC in the Cloud

In this video from SC19, Tate Cantrell from Verne Global describes how the company delivers sustainable HPC in the Cloud. “Verne Global delivers true high performance computing solutions in an optimized environment, built upon renewable resources. Our expert team provides full life-cycle support to enable maximum performance and flexibility for customer workloads, whilst offering significant cost savings.”

Fujitsu A64FX Arm Processors come to Cray CS Supercomputers

In this video from SC19, Takeshi Horie from Fujitsu and Steve Scott from Cray describe how the powerful Arm-based A64fx Arm Processor will power the next generation of Cray CS Supercomputers. “We are delivering the development-to-deployment experience customers have come to expect from Cray, including exploratory development to the Cray Programming Environment (CPE) for Arm processors to optimize performance and scalability with additional support for Scalable Vector Extensions and high bandwidth memory.”

Prototype of Fugaku Supercomputer reaches Number One on Green500

Today Fujitsu announced that a prototype of the Fugaku supercomputer being jointly developed by the two parties took No.1 in the Green500, a global ranking based on the energy efficiency of supercomputers. With Fugaku, we succeeded in developing a general-purpose Arm CPU with the world’s highest energy efficiency, far exceeding our targets through Co-design,” said Satoshi Matsuoka, Director, Riken-Center for Computational Science (R-CCS).

The Use of High-Performance Polymers in HPC and Data Center Applications

“Polymer components in liquid cooling systems are attractive for several reasons: they are lightweight, typically less expensive than metal counterparts, and are impervious to corrosion that can render parts inoperable or introduce debris into flow paths. The challenges with many polymers used to date, however, are their abilities to handle high temperatures and physical stressors without deforming, cracking or creeping. These shortcomings become significant when leaks occur, leading to downtime or damage to equipment.”

Cray and Fujitsu to bring Game-Changing Arm A64FX Processor to Global HPC Market

Today Cray and Fujitsu announced a partnership to offer high performance technologies for the exascale era. Under the alliance agreement, Cray is developing the first-ever commercial supercomputer powered by the Fujitsu A64FX Arm-based processor with high-memory bandwidth (HBM) and supported on the proven Cray CS500 supercomputer architecture and programming environment.

Advania to build sustainable HPC datacenter in Sweden

Advania and Stockholm Exergi have joined in partnership for the construction of a new HPC data center in Stockholm, Sweden. ADC will lease land in Stockholm Data Parks to build the data center, and the heat generated by computing equipment in the data center will be used for local house-heating in Stockholm. This arrangement ensures a dramatic increase in the energy efficiency of the data center, making it environmentally friendly, and will utilize heat that is traditionally wasted for the benefit of the local community.

Arm HPC User Group Returns to Denver Nov. 18

The Arm HPC team invites you to our 5th Annual Arm HPC User Group (AHUG) session at SC19. The all-day event takes place on Monday, Nov. 18 at the Curtis Hotel in Denver. “We have a full day agenda of strategic partners and end-users from all regions of the world sharing their experiences, best practices, plans, ecosystem advances, and results on Arm-based platforms for HPC applications. The goal of this event is, as always, to candidly share and network among the growing number of users and sites that are deploying Arm for HPC and to highlight the work of the many leaders in this area.”

NNSA Explorations: ARM for Supercomputing

Howard Pritchard from LANL and Simon Hammond from Sandia gave this talk at the Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing 2019. “Sandia National Laboratories has been an active partner in leveraging our Arm-based platform since its early design, and featuring it in the deployment of the world’s largest Arm-based supercomputer, is a strategic investment for the DOE and the industry as a whole as we race toward achieving exascale computing.”

TMGcore and Vertiv Collaborate on Self-Contained Data Center Platform

Today TMGcore announced today a partnership with Vertiv to help develop its new self-contained data center platform that requires an average of 80 percent less power to cool than traditional infrastructure. Vertiv’s critical infrastructure experience and expertise combined with TMGcore’s innovative technology will help drive the future of data center platforms and create a new standard of operability for applications from edge through hyperscale in capacity.
