Lenovo Brings a Decade of Liquid Cooling Experience to the Faster, Denser, Hotter HPC Systems of the Future

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  HPC systems customers (and vendors) are in permanent pursuit of more compute power with equal or greater node density. But with that comes more power consumption, greater heat generation and rising cooling costs. Because of this, the IT business – with a boost from the HPC and hyperscale segments – is spiraling up […]

Exascale: ECP’s QMCPACK Project for Predicting and Controlling Materials
