Opin Kerfi and UberCloud team up for Engineering Software as a Service

Today Opin Kerfi in Iceland announced a partnership with The Ubercloud to enable customers to gain instant access to world-leading engineering simulation capabilities through Software as a Service. “This partnership and portfolio expansion is not only valuable to current customers but also appeals to a much wider spectrum of prospects as a subscription-based and managed approach is commonly preferred by both small and large businesses. Customers can use this extra capacity to research, design, experiment and simulate as fast as they need, when they need it.”

Canada’s CDRD to use AI for Drug Discovery

Today Canada’s National Centre for Drug Research and Development announced a collaboration with Schrödinger Inc to use artificial intelligence to help facilitate the development of new therapeutic antibodies. “We’re excited to work with CDRD to aggressively translate scientific discoveries into innovative therapeutic products,” said Dr. Ramy Farid, Schrödinger’s President and CEO. “This partnership is an important step forward in our efforts to extend the successes we’ve had in small molecule drug discovery to the development of novel biologics.”

Collaborating for Innovation in the Dell EMC HPC Community

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community Meeting, Adnan Khaleel from Dell EMC describes how the company works with partners to deliver high performance solutions. “It’s really the conversations that we have in the corridors and the in mixers where they learn a lot of how we do our future planning, how we can work together, how we can collaborate not just with Dell EMC, but even amongst themselves.”

New Rev-Sim.org Portal to help Democratize Simulation

Today a new web portal called Rev-Sim.org was launched to support a growing industry-wide movement to make engineering simulation more accessible, efficient, and reliable; not just for CAE experts but also for non-specialists. “The Rev-Sim.org website provides access to the latest success stories, news, articles, whitepapers, thought leadership blogs, presentations, videos, webinars, best practices and other reference materials to help industry democratize the power of simulation across their engineering, manufacturing, service, supply chain, and R&D organizations.”

iRODS Consortium adds Members and Joins OpenSFS

iRODS is taking an active role in Lustre community. The iRODS Consortium recently signed on to the Open Scalable File Systems, Inc (OpenSFS), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the success of the Lustre file system, an open source parallel distributed file system used for computing on large-scale high performance computing clusters.

Lustre 2.11.0 Released

Today OpenSFS announced the release of Lustre 2.11.0, the fastest and most scalable parallel file system. OpenSFS, founded in 2010 to advance Lustre development, is the premier non-profit organization promoting the use of Lustre and advancing its capabilities through coordinated releases of the Lustre file system.

HLRS and Wuhan to Collaborate on Exascale Computing

The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) and Supercomputing Center of Wuhan University have announced plans to cooperate on technology and training projects. “HLRS and the Supercomputing Center at Wuhan University plan to exchange scientists and to focus on key research topics in high-performance computing. Both sides will also share experience in installing large-scale computing systems, particularly because both Wuhan and Stuttgart aim to develop exascale systems.”

Daniel Reed to Keynote Internet2 Global Summit in San Diego

Today the 2018 Internet2 Global Summit announced that Daniel Reed from the University of Iowa will keynote the conference with a talk on the convergence of academic and research collaboration. Registration is now open for the event, which takes place May 6-9 in San Diego. “Dr. Reed’s presentation will explore the intersections of balancing the needs of supporting the academic enterprise and the research community from a technology, application, and cyberinfrastructure perspective. He will provide an in-depth viewpoint on both the challenges and opportunities by addressing how cloud and edge computing, along with new technologies, will continue to play a significant role across both domains.”

HPE Teams with University of Bristol for ARM-based HPC

Today the University of Bristol announced an initiative to accelerate the adoption of
ARM-based supercomputers in the UK. “HPE is excited to work with Arm, SUSE, and other key partners to offer the HPC community a fresh alternative for high performance computing which we believe will stimulate the industry to develop increasingly performant and efficient supercomputing solutions. By investing in this deployment through the Catalyst UK programme, HPE and our partners will drive both digital transformation and sustainable economic growth through new innovation and scientific discovery.”

Pawsey Supercomputing Centre teams with NSCC Singapore to Accelerate Science

The National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore and the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate in the fields of supercomputing, networking, data analytics, scientific software applications and visualization. “With our national petascale HPC platform, NSCC’s collaboration with international supercomputing centres such as the Pawsey, will benefit and bring together people and researchers with different skillsets and expertise to solve problems of a scale previously not possible,” said Professor Tan Tin Wee, NSCC’s Chief Executive.”
