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.

A Liquid Cooling Petascale Supercomputing Site and GROMACS Workload Optimization Benchmark

Accelerated computing have been viewed as revolutionary breakthrough technologies for AI and HPC workloads. Significant accelerated computing power from GPUs paired with CPUs is the major contributor. Our friends over at Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) provide QuantaGrid D52G-4U 8 NVLink GPUs servers with a liquid cooling platform successfully adopted by the National Center of High-performance Computing (NCHC) in Taiwan) for their Taiwania-II project. Rank 23rd on the Top500 as of June 2019.

HPE Hybrid HPC Early Access Program for your Hybrid HPC Journey

This timely article from our friends over at HPE provides the following key takeaways: HPE Hybrid HPC provides you choice to meet demanding workload needs; HPE is committed to your success by offering their Early Access Program (EAP); Take advantage of HPE’s strategically assembled partner ecosystem to maximize success.

Using HPC to Track Massive Ice Shelves

Mellanox Technologies’ Vice President of Marketing, Gilad Shainer, discusses the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Mellanox’s high performance computing work that is tracking the Earth’s most massive ice shelves. Essentially, the simulations needed to track the massive ice sheet’s progress require extremely large resolutions, large outputs and high computational demands – all of which requires massive computational power.

Discover a New Compute Experience at HP-CAST 28

To help customers discover a new compute experience marked by enhanced agility, security, and control, HPE will host its High Performance Consortium for Advanced Scientific and Technical (HP-CAST) computing users group event in Frankfurt, Germany from June 16th-17th. HPE’s Bill Mannel covers highlights from the upcoming conference.

Overcoming the Learning Curve of New Processor Architectures

High-performance computing (HPC) tools are helping financial firms survive and thrive in this highly demanding and data-intensive industry. As financial models grow in complexity and greater amounts of data must be processed and analyzed on a daily basis, firms are increasingly turning to HPC solutions to exploit the latest technology performance improvements. Suresh Aswani, Senior Manager, Solutions Marketing, at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, shares how to overcome the learning curve of new processor architectures.

High Performance System Interconnect Technology

Today, high performance interconnects can be divided into three categories: Ethernet, InfiniBand, and vendor specific interconnects. Ethernet is established as the dominant low level interconnect standard for mainstream commercial computing requirements. InfiniBand originated in 1999 to specifically address workload requirements that were not adequately addressed by Ethernet, and vendor specific technologies frequently have a time to market (and therefore performance) advantage over standardized offerings.

Many-Task Computing for Grids

Many-task computing aims to bridge the gap between two computing paradigms, high throughput computing and high performance computing.

High Performance Computing from Fujitsu

The developments that have taken place in high performance computing (HPC) over the decades can be described quite simply: Without Fujitsu research, the development of the supercomputer would have been quite different.

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.
