Podcast: Rescale powers Innovation in Antenna Design

In this Big Compute podcast, Gabriel Broner hosts Mike Hollenbeck, founder and CTO at Optisys. Optisys is a startup that is changing the antenna industry. Using HPC in the cloud and 3D printing they are able to design customized antennas which are much smaller, lighter and higher performing than traditional antennas.

Big Compute Podcast: Boom Supersonic looks to HPC Cloud

In this Big Compute Podcast, host Gabriel Broner interviews Josh Krall co-founder and VP of Technology at Boom Supersonic. Boom is using HPC in the cloud to design a passenger supersonic plane and address the technical and business challenges it poses. “We witnessed technical success with supersonic flying with Concorde, but the economics did not work out. More than forty years later, Boom is embarking in building Overture, a supersonic plane, where passengers will pay the price of today’s business class seats.”

Big Compute Podcast: Accelerating HPC Workflows with AI

In this Big Compute Podcast, Gabriel Broner from Rescale and Dave Turek from IBM discuss how AI enables the acceleration of HPC workflows. “HPC can benefit from AI techniques. One area of opportunity is to augment what people do in preparing simulations, analyzing results and deciding what simulation to run next. Another opportunity exists when we take a step back and analyze whether we can use AI techniques instead of simulations to solve the problem. We should think about AI as increasing the toolbox HPC users have.”

Big Compute Podcast Looks at HPC in the Cloud for Academia

In this Big Compute podcast, host Gabriel Broner from Rescale interviews Marek Michalewicz about the challenges of HPC in the Cloud for Academia. “ICM UW is a leading data science facility in Central Europe. High performance computers used for processing, analysis, visualization and advanced computing tasks are our speciality. “At ICM UW, we are a highly qualified team of experts, equipped with modern high-performance data infrastructure. We provide optimized, comprehensive solutions for research, business and the public sector. Our goal is to understand data and provide innovative solutions to organizations and institutions, taking advantage of our data science expertise.”

Big Compute Podcast Looks at New Architectures for HPC

In this Big Compute podcast, host Gabriel Broner from Rescale interviews Mike Woodacre, HPE Fellow, to discuss the shift from CPUs to an emerging diversity of architectures. They discuss the evolution of CPUs, the advent of GPUs with increasing data parallelism, memory driven computing, and the potential benefits of a cloud environment with access to multiple architectures.

Rescale Brings Cloud HPC to Academia

Today Rescale announced its launch into academia with their ScaleX Pro for Students and ScaleX Pro for Classroom products. “Rescale’s ScaleX Pro for Students and ScaleX Pro for Classroom solve for today’s academia pain points by providing students with the ability to run projects immediately and unique access to different technology partner programs such as to cloud service providers.”

Rescale Delivers Secure HPC in the Cloud for the Public Sector

Today Rescale announced that the company is now delivering secure HPC in the Cloud to the public sector. “In our platform development we have taken several steps towards protecting customers through the security of our platform which is why we are proud to be the first HPC platform solution in the industry to be ITAR and EAR compliant. Additionally, we are the only HPC platform today that is both independently SOC 2 Type 2 attested and HIPAA compliant.”

Video: Panel Discussion on Innovation in HPC

In this video from the HPC User Forum in Detroit, Earl Joseph from Hyperion Research moderates a panel discussion on Innovation in HPC. “Hyperion Research sponsors the annual HPC and ROI Innovation Awards to recognize noteworthy achievements made by users using High Performance Computing technologies. While there are multiple benchmarks to measure the performance of technical computers, there currently isn’t an adequate methodology to evaluate the economic and scientific value HPC systems contribute. The HPC Innovation Excellence Award Program is designed to help close that gap.”

Rescale Partners Program to Deliver Big Compute to Enterprise Customers

Last week, Rescale announced the launch of its Powered by Rescale program with IBM as its first partner. “With the Powered by Rescale program, partners can deliver their product and/or service to customers as part of an end-to-end solution under their brand. This allows partners in the simulation and HPC space to participate in net-new cloud business opportunities while maintaining focus on their core technology and competency.”

Rescale Brings NVIDIA GPU-Accelerated Electromagnetic Simulation To The Cloud

Today Rescale announced that XFdtd electromagnetic simulation software from Remcom is now available on Rescale’s ScaleX platform for HPC in the cloud. The combined solutions allows engineers to quickly and easily run complex, high-fidelity EM simulation models from any web browser. “We are very excited to be partnering with Remcom,” said Joris Poort, CEO at Rescale. “We believe that Remcom users will benefit from the fast, flexible, secure, and huge on-demand resources that Rescale can bring to computationally demanding tools, such as electromagnetic simulation.”
