Frédéric Hannoyer Appointed COO of SiPearl, Designer of Europe’s Exascale Chip

Frédéric Hannoyer (48, Ecole Polytechnique Paris, Ecole des Ponts Paris, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has been appointed chief operating officer of  SiPearl, the microprocessor designer for the European exascale supercomputer. In April, SiPearl signed a technological licensing agreement with Arm, the global semiconductor IP provider, granting the organization access to the Arm Neoverse platform, codenamed […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Rich Brueckner and ECP’s Doug Kothe Talk Exascale, Containers of the Future and Multiple Machine Coordination

As director of the Exascale Computing Project (ECP), Doug Kothe leads one of the United State’s most important strategic computing efforts, one that promises significant impacts on scientific research and national competitiveness. The position draws upon Kothe’s more than three decades of experience as a physicist and computer scientist at several of the Department of […]

‘Rocky Year’ – Hyperion’s HPC Market Update: COVID-19 Hits Q1 Revenues, Cloud HPC Boom, Shift in Server Vendor Standings

Instead of its usual mid-year HPC market update presented at the ISC conference in Frankfurt, industry analyst firm Hyperion Research has virtually released its latest findings – including estimates of COVID-19 ‘s impact on the industry, on growth of HPC in public clouds and a significant shift in the competitive standing among the leading HPC server vendors. Taking 2019 in total, Hyperion sized the HPC server market at $13.7 billion, record revenues

Interview: Mark Papermaster, CTO and EVP, Technology and Engineering, AMD

In this interview, Mark Papermaster, CTO and EVP, Technology and Engineering from AMD describes the company’s presence in the HPC space along with new trends in the industry. At a higher level, Mark also offers his views of the semiconductor industry in general as well as areas of innovation that AMD plans to cultivate. The discussion then turns to the exascale era of computing.

ExaAM Project Aims to Transform Additive Manufacturing through Exascale Simulation

In the latest episode of the Let’s Talk Exascale podcast, we are joined by John Turner of Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He is principal investigator of the ExaAM project within the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Exascale Computing Project (ECP). ExaAM plans to transform AM through exascale computer simulations.

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.

Exascale for Everyone

The exascale hype has been gaining a lot of steam in the press lately, and for good reason. Ever since the petascale barrier was broken in 2008, technology users, companies and research institutions have set their ‘sites’ on the holy grail of computing milestones. In this guest article, Matt Ziegler, Director HPC & AI Product Management, HPC Product Marketing at Lenovo, explores the evolution of and potential of exascale computing.

The Best Software-Defined Network for the Best Network Efficiency (or Getting Ready for Exascale)

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a concept that has emerged in recent years to decouple network control and forwarding functions. The one network type that does not require special effort to adjust it to the computational needs of high-performance computing, deep learning or any other data intensive application is InfiniBand. In this guest article, Mellanox Technologies’ Gilad Shainer and Eitan Zahavi explore Infiniband networks and the benefits and potential of software-defined networking. 

Podcast: Doug Kothe Looks back at the Exascale Computing Project Annual Meeting

In this podcast, Doug Kothe from the Exascale Computing Project describes the 2019 ECP Annual Meeting. “Key topics to be covered at the meeting are discussions of future systems, software stack plans, and interactions with facilities. Several parallel sessions are also planned throughout the meeting.”

Cray Sets the Stage for Exascale at ISC 2018

In this video from ISC 2018, Cray CTO Steve Scott describes how the company is moving towards providing Exascale computing capabilities for scientists and engineers worldwide. “It takes many years and many generations of technology developments to be a successful supercomputing provider. With every Cray system, you get the benefit of decades of supercomputing experience. We offer a comprehensive portfolio of supercomputer, storage, data analytics and AI solutions for a range of budgets. All hardware and software is integrated, and every solution comes with the assurance of Cray support.”
