Job of the Week: Research Engineer – Systems Architecture Lab at HPE

HPE is seeking a Research Engineer for their Systems Architecture Lab in our Job of the Week. “The System Architecture Laboratory at Hewlett Packard Labs has an immediate opening for a Research Scientist position with a background in high-speed mixed-signal CMOS design and silicon photonics. The critical tasks is the design of high-speed mixed signals circuits including modulator drivers, transimpedance amplifier, ADC/DAC, SERDES, and PLL using advanced CMOS nodes to enable high-performance computing systems.  Successful candidates will have hands-on experience in the CMOS design, design verification, and lab testing of mixed-signal CMOS circuits to interface with photonics.”

Radio Free HPC looks at New Leadership at HPE

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at HPE’s new CEO, Antonio Neri, a longtime HPE executive who previously served as President of the company. As the number 1 server vendor in the HPC space, this change will be one to watch as we transition to the exascale era in the next five years or so. “This transistion comes at an interesting time for HPE, as one of their main competitors, Dell Technologies, is reportedly looking at an IPO or reverse acquisition by VMware.”

Eni in Italy Launches 18.6 Petaflop HPC4 Supercomputer

Eni in Italy has launched its new HPC4 supercomputer. With a peak performance of 18.6 Petaflops, the HPC4 cluster from Hewlett Packard Enterprise quadruples the Company’s computing power, making it the world’s most powerful industrial system. “With HPC4 we are tracing the path for the use of exascale supercomputers in the energy sector that could revolutionize the way in which oil&gas activities are managed.”
