Proposals Open to Research Community for ALCF AI Testbed’s Cerebras and SambaNova Systems

Proposals are now being accepted by the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility for access to its AI Testbed, a collection of advanced artificial intelligence accelerators available for science. Researchers interested in using the AI Testbed’s Cerebras CS-2 and SambaNova DataScale systems can submit project proposals via the ALCF’s Director’s Discretionary program. Access to additional testbed resources, including Graphcore, Groq, and Habana accelerators, will be […]

Dell Technologies Interview: Univ. of Liverpool’s Hybrid HPC Strategy Boosts Scientific Computing with a Burst

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  In a recent Dell Technologies interview on this site, we talkied about HPC-as-a-Service with R Systems, provider HPC-on-demand resources and technical expertise in partnership with Dell HPC Cloud Services. Now, in this interview, we have a variant within this HPC segment: bursting to the cloud when an on-premises cluster needs a resource boost. Faced with this situation was the University of Liverpool’s Advanced Research Computing within the Computer Services Department. The group, led by Cliff Addison, uses the Dell-based “Barkla” Linux cluster for its scientific computing needs. For times when the group’s needs overtax Barkla, the university worked with Dell Technologies and UK-based Alces Flight, which designs and builds HPC environments for scientists, engineers and researchers. UK-based Alces and Dell engineered a burst capability to Amazon Web Services, placing priority on creating a seamless environment easily adopted and accessed by Advanced Research Computing scientists.
