Scratch to Supercomputers: Bottoms-up Build of Large-scale Computational Lensing Software

Gilles Fourestey from EPFL gave this talk at the Swiss HPC Conference. “LENSTOOL is a gravitational lensing software that models mass distribution of galaxies and clusters. It is used to obtain sub-percent precision measurements of the total mass in galaxy clusters and constrain the dark matter self-interaction cross-section, a crucial ingredient to understanding its nature.”

The Transformation of HPC: Simulation and Cognitive Methods in the Era of Big Data

Dave Turek from IBM gave this talk at the Swiss HPC Conference. “There is a shift underway where HPC is beginning to be addressed with novel techniques and technologies including cognitive and analytic approaches to HPC problems and the arrival of the first quantum systems. This talk will showcase how IBM is merging cognitive, analytics, and quantum with classic simulation and modeling to create a new path for computational science.”

Video: How MVAPICH & MPI Power Scientific Research

Adam Moody from LLNL presented this talk at the MVAPICH User Group. “High-performance computing is being applied to solve the world’s most daunting problems, including researching climate change, studying fusion physics, and curing cancer. MPI is a key component in this work, and as such, the MVAPICH team plays a critical role in these efforts. In this talk, I will discuss recent science that MVAPICH has enabled and describe future research that is planned. I will detail how the MVAPICH team has responded to address past problems and list the requirements that future work will demand.”

Infinite Memory Engine: HPC in the FLASH Era

In this RichReport slidecast, James Coomer from DDN presents an overview of the Infinite Memory Engine IME. “IME is a scale-out, flash-native, software-defined, storage cache that streamlines the data path for application IO. IME interfaces directly to applications and secures IO via a data path that eliminates file system bottlenecks. With IME, architects can realize true flash-cache economics with a storage architecture that separates capacity from performance.”

HPC Storage InsideHPC Guide

HPC and technical computing environments require the collection, storage, and transmission of large-scale datasets. To meet these demands, datacenter architects must consider how increasing storage capacity over time will affect HPC workloads, performance, and system availability.
