Asperitas and Shell to showcase new immersion cooling solutions at OCP Virtual Summit

Immersion cooling specialist Asperitas and Shell will launch Shell Immersion Cooling Fluid S5 X at the Open Compute Project (OCP) Virtual Summit, May 12-15. Asperitas has also added an additional immersion cooling solution to their current portfolio. The solution is making use of the same natural convection driven circulation concept as the solution introduced to the market in 2017, but with increased IT capacity. The solution is designed to address the demand for high density and performance compute across various markets including hyperscale cloud, enterprise class and telecom.

Benchmarking CPUs at Shell

Ronald Cogswell from Shell gave this talk at the Rice Oil & Gas Conference. “In this presentation we will compare the benchmarking results from the latest 2 generations of CPU hardware from AMD and Intel. The benchmarks were conducted using proprietary Seismic kernels as well as known open source benchmarks. The study focused on memory bandwidth, flops and overall performance and provides results of real-world production Seismic workloads.”

Industry Leaders prepare for Rice University Oil and Gas Conference in March

The upcoming Rice University Oil and Gas HPC Conference will focus on the computational challenges and needs in the Energy industry. The event takes place March 4-6, 2019 in Houston. “High-end computing and information technology continues to stand out across the industry as a critical business enabler and differentiator with a relatively well understood return on investment. However, challenges such as constantly changing technology landscape, increasing focus on software and software innovation, and escalating concerns around workforce development still remain. The agenda for the conference includes invited keynote and plenary speakers, parallel sessions made up of at least four presentations each and a student poster session.”
