Video: Providing a National Software Repository for Interactive HPC

Lance Wilson from Monash University gave this talk at the Singularity User Group. “The repository for the build files is public and is run in the same way as a software development project. In addition to the build files being public, the repository is linked to singularity hub, such that the containers are easily available to anyone in the characterisation research community.”

Video: How to Scale from Workstation through Cloud to HPC in Cryo-EM Processing

Lance Wilson from Monash University gave this talk at the GPU Technology Conference. “We’ll review the last two years of development in single-particle cryo-electron microscopy processing, with a focus on accelerated software, and discuss benchmarks and best practices for common software packages in this domain. Our talk will include videos and images of atomic resolution molecules and viruses that demonstrate our success in high-resolution imaging.”

Supercomputing Drug Discovery to Combat Heart Disease

Using a unique computational approach to rapidly sample proteins in their natural state of gyrating, bobbing, and weaving, a research team from UC San Diego and Monash University in Australia has identified promising drug leads that may selectively combat heart disease, from arrhythmias to cardiac failure.

Mellanox Opens New Singapore Headquarters to Strengthen HPC in Asia

Today Mellanox announced the opening of its new APAC headquarters and solutions centre in Singapore. The Company’s new APAC headquarters will feature a technology solution centre for showcasing the latest technologies from Mellanox, in addition to an executive briefing facility. The solution centre will feature the innovative solutions enabled by latest Mellanox technologies including HPC, Cloud, Big Data, and storage.

Dell Panel on the Convergence of HPC, Big Data, and Cloud

“Modeling and simulation have been the primary usage of high performance computing (HPC). But the world is changing. We now see the need for rapid, accurate insights from large amounts of data. To accomplish this, HPC technology is repurposed. Likewise the location where the work gets done is not entirely the same either. Many workloads are migrating to massive cloud data centers because of the speed of execution. In this panel, leaders in computing will share how they, and others, integrate tradition and innovation (HPC technologies, Big Data analytics, and Cloud Computing) to achieve more discoveries and drive business outcomes.”

Mellanox Powers World’s First 100G End-to-End Cloud at Monash University

Today Mellanox announced that Monash University in Australia has selected the company’s CloudX platform based on Mellanox’s Spectrum SN2700 Open Ethernet™ switches, ConnectX-4 NICs and Mellanox’s LinkX cables to provide the network for the world’s first 100Gb/s end-to-end OpenStack cloud.
