Putting HPC into the Hands of Every Engineer and Scientist

In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Wolfgang Gentzsch explains the role of HPC container technology in providing ubiquitous access to HPC. “The advent of lightweight pervasive, packageable, portable, scalable, interactive, easy to access and use HPC application containers based on Docker technology running seamlessly on workstations, servers, and clouds, is bringing us ever closer to the democratization of HPC.”

Nor-Tech to Offer Clusters with Intel HPC Orchestrator

Today Nor-Tech announced the imminent rollout of clusters integrated with the Intel HPC Orchestrator. HPC Orchestrator is a licensed, value-add version of OpenHPC that will be supported by Intel and Nor-Tech.

Nor-Tech & ESI Partner on Affordable Clusters for OpenFOAM

“We saw a disconnect in the industry between rapidly growing organizations that could really benefit from HPC clusters and the solutions that were on the market,” said Nor-Tech President and CEO David Bollig. “Our goal was to develop a powerful, scalable cluster that was in itself affordable, but also didn’t require hefty, recurring software licensing fees.”

HPE and Mellanox: Advanced Technology Solutions for HPC

In this special guest feature, Scot Schultz from Mellanox and Terry Myers from HPE write that the two companies are collaborating to push the boundaries of high performance computing. “So while every company must weigh the cost and commitment of upgrading its data center or HPC cluster to EDR, the benefits of such an upgrade go well beyond the increase in bandwidth. Only HPE solutions that include Mellanox end-to-end 100Gb/s EDR deliver efficiency, scalability, and overall system performance that results in maximum performance per TCO dollar.”

ESI Opens Datacenter at Teratec for Engineering in the Cloud

Although the cloud has become an accepted part of commercial and consumer computing, science and engineering have been less welcoming to the concept, but this could be on the point of changing with the announcement this month that the ESI Group will be delivering advanced engineering simulation in the cloud, across multiple physics and engineering disciplines.

Advania in Iceland Tests HPC Cloud Bursting with Docker using the Ubercloud

An Iceland-based “HPC in the Cloud” company called Advania has published an interesting case study with The Ubercloud, and online community and marketplace where engineers, scientists, and their service providers discover, try, and buy Computing Power and Software as a Service, from Cloud Resource and Software Providers around the world.

CPU24/7 Joins UberCloud Marketplace with OpenFOAM Solution
