The Role of Quick Disconnect Couplings in Liquid Cooling: 5 Attributes that Contribute to Connector Reliability

The use of liquid cooling to mitigate heat generated by electronics can be found in a wide variety of applications, including gaming computers, supercomputers and medical equipment. Download the new report, courtesy of CPC, “The Role of Quick Disconnect Couplings in Liquid Cooling: Five Attributes that Contribute to Connector Reliability,”  that explores the role of quick disconnect couplings in liquid cooling. 

HPC in the data center

The Central Processing Unit (CPU) has been at the heart of High Performance Computing (HPC) for decades. However, in recent years, advances in parallel processing technology mean the landscape has changed dramatically. To learn more download this white paper.

CRAY – 2 Computer System

he CRAY-2 Computer System sets the standard for the next generation of supercomputers. It is characterized by a large Common Memory (256 million 64-bit words), four Background Processors, a clock cycle of 4.1 nanoseconds (4.1 billionths of a second) and liquid immersion cooling. It offers effective throughput six to twelve times that of the CRAY-1 and runs an operating system based on the increasingly popular UNIXTM operating system.

Supercomputers for All

Supercomputers may date back to the 1960s, but it is only recently that their vast processing power has begun to be harnessed by industry and commerce, to design safer cars, build quieter aeroplanes, speed up drug discovery, and subdue the volatility of the financial markets. The need for powerful computers is growing, says Catherine Rivière […]

PRIMEHPC FX10 Fujitsu Supercomputer

Fujitsu developed the first Japanese supercomputer in 1977. In the thirty-plus years since then, we have been leading the development of supercomputers with the application of advanced technologies. We now introduce the PRIMEHPC FX10, a state-of-the-art supercomputer that makes the petascale computing achieved by the “K computer”(*1) more accessible.

Dell HPC General Research Computing

This white paper provides information on the latest Dell HPC General Research Computing Solution based on the Dell 13th Generation servers. The solution supports new generation Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 based PowerEdge servers targeted to provide optimal performance and dense compute power.

Successful Technical High Performance Computing

This paper offers those considering HPC, both users and managers, guidance when considering the best way to deploy an HPC solution. Three important questions are suggested that help determine the most appropriate HPC design (scale-up or scale out) that meets your goal and accelerates your discoveries.

Genomics High Performance Computing Guide

There are times when a convergence of technologies happens that can benefit a very large number of humans in order to improve their well-being. A number of technological innovations are coming together that can greatly enhance the recovery from life-threatening illnesses and prolong and improve the quality of life. With a combination of faster and more accurate genomics sequencing, faster computer systems and new algorithms, the movement of discovering what medicine will work best on individual patients has moved from research institutions to bedside doctors. Physicians and other healthcare providers now have better, faster, and more accurate tools and data to determine optimal treatment plans based on more patient data. This is especially true for pediatric cancer patients. These fast-moving technologies have become the center of a national effort to help millions of people overcome certain diseases.

Central Processing Unit and HPC

The Central Processing Unit (CPU) has been at the heart of High Performance Computing (HPC) for decades. However, in recent years, advances in parallel processing technology mean the landscape has changed dramatically. Modern Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), which feature 1,000s of compute cores and high capacity, high-bandwidth memory, have become extremely adept at processing massively parallel HPC code — delivering results very quickly.

Cray XC ® Series Network

The Cray XC series is a distributed memory system developed as part of Cray’s participation in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) High Productivity Computing System (HPCS) program. Previously codenamed “Cascade,” the Cray XC system is capable of sustained multi-petaflops performance and features a hybrid architecture combining multiple processor technologies, a high performance network and a high performance operating system and programming environment.
