Cray to build FPGA-Accelerated Supercomputer for Paderborn University

Today Paderborn University in Germany announced that it has selected a Cray CS500 cluster system as its next-generation supercomputer. This procurement is the first phase of the Noctua project in which a multi-petaflop-system with a total budget of 10M euros. The initial HPC system provides academic researchers from Paderborn University and nationwide with computing resources primarily for computational material science, optoelectronics and photonics, and computer system research. The system is expected to go into production in 2018.

Nallatech Showcases Next Generation FPGA Accelerators at SC17

Last week at SC17, Nallatech showcased their FPGA solutions for high-performance computing, low latency network acceleration, and data analytics. “FPGAs are being deployed in volume across a range of on-premise platforms and cloud infrastructure to achieve a step-change in application performance and energy-efficiency above and beyond what can be achieved using conventional processor technologies” said Craig Petrie, VP Business Development of FPGA Solutions at Nallatech. “We’re excited to be showcasing our new OpenCL-programmable ‘520’ product range featuring Intel Stratix-10 FPGAs. These server-qualified accelerator products have been engineered to cost-effectively solve demanding co-processing and real-time data ingest and enrichment applications.”
