Cloud Adoption for HPC: Trends and Opportunities

This whitepaper is an insideHPC Special Research Report sponsored by Univa: Cloud Adoption for HPC: Trends and Opportunities. Today many organizations solve their most difficult computational challenges by creating their own on-premises, compute-intensive, high performance data center. The latest hardware and software innovations have removed barriers that prevented many organizations from embracing HPC solutions. Alternatively, […]

Are You Ready for the Exascale Era? Find Out at SC19

As we head into the biggest supercomputing event of the year, all eyes are on exascale. The frontrunners in the race to exascale, including our friends over at Altair, will convene at SC19 in Denver this November to share updates, address challenges, and help paint the picture of an exascale-fueled future for HPC.

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.”

Mellanox Announces HDR InfiniBand-to-Ethernet Gateway Appliance for High Performance Data Centers
