TSUBAME2: How to Manage a Large GPU-Based Heterogeneous Supercomputer

Satoshi Matsuoka gave this talk at the PBS Works User Group this week. “The Tokyo Tech. TSUBAME2 supercomputer is one of the world’s leading supercomputer, ranked as high as #4 in the world on the Top500 and recognized as the “greenest supercomputer in the world” on the Green 500. With the GPU upgrade in 2013, it still sustains high performance (5.7 Petaflops Peak) and high usage (nearly 2000 registered users). However, such performance levels have been achieved with pioneering adoption of latest technologies such as GPUs and SSDs that necessitated non-traditional strategies in resource scheduling.”

South Africa’s CHPC Builds a Better Infrastructure with Altair PBS Works

At the Centre for High-Performance Computing (CHPC) in South Africa, the mission is to enable cutting-edge research by supporting the highest levels of HPC available. That means ensuring researchers – who often are not experienced with computers let alone HPC systems – to get their work done with the HPC getting in the way.

Great Speakers Lined Up for PBS Works User Group

Today Altair published the agenda for their PBS Works User Group Meeting, which takes place Sept. 14-17 in Silicon Valley. At the event, engineers, IT administrators, cluster managers, and users of HPC systems will have the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with the best minds in supercomputing.
