Available through Lenovo, the new server platform with Ampere’s eMAG processors is available now for purchase and developers can order by visiting Ampere’s new developer web site. “By providing access to a development environment with open standards and full open documentation, we can expand the ecosystem and optimize the developer experience to innovate on cloud applications not yet imagined.”

Sylabs Tunes Singularity 3.0 Containers for Machine Learning

Today Sylabs announced that it has released a new version of its innovative container software: Singularity 3.0. With new enterprise-class features, Singularity is now the premier container runtime solution, enabling your company to seamlessly and efficiently tackle today’s most demanding AI, machine learning, and advanced analytic workloads. “Lenovo and Sylabs have collaborated for over two years around a shared vision of producing lightweight HPC containers that are flexible, secure, and reproducible, while also delivering performance that is equal to native OS performance.”

SciNet pushes Scientific Boundaries on Climate Research

In this video, W. Richard Peltier and Daniel Gruner describes how SciNet in Canada is powering climate research. To support vital scientific research in fields as diverse as astrophysics, biomedicine and climate science, SciNet beefed up its high-performance computing resources with a Lenovo ThinkSystem supercomputer 10 times more powerful than its predecessor. “The 4.6 Petaflop supercomputer will help Canadian researchers achieve meaningful results in artificial intelligence, astrophysics, climate change, oceanic research and other disciplines using big data.”

New Modular Lenovo ThinkSystem Accelerates Ai Performance

Over at the Lenovo Blog, the company has unveiled a new ThinkSystem based on a modular infrastructure targeted at Ai workloads. “By developing the ThinkSystem SR670 platform with integrated modularity, Lenovo has recognized that technologies around the CPU are evolving rapidly and driving massive performance gains for many types of workloads. System designs need to evolve to provide the capability and flexibility for customers to add more revolutionary technologies to the system faster. Customers shouldn’t be gated by a system that can’t change and grow with them as they build their intelligence platforms of the future.”
