Harvard’s Cannon Supercomputer is Anything but Loose

In this sponsored post, Dr. Scott Yockel, University Research Computing Officer at the Harvard University and Scott Tease, Vice President and General Manager of HPC and AI at Lenovo, discuss how the Cannon Supercomputer’s mission is clear – to be the computational powerhouse behind some of the most groundbreaking research of this world and beyond – from the impact of environmental pollutants on human health to the intricate study of black holes.

JARVICE™ XE, The Platform Powering Hybrid Supercomputing

Since its debut in 2019 as the world’s first container-native, hybrid cloud supercomputing application delivery platform, JARVICE™ XE has seen rapid innovation and increased customer adoption.  As Nimbix became an Atos company in 2021, the JARVICE™ XE platform expanded its footprint across the industry’s broadest range of high-performance computing solutions – powering any combination of the fastest supercomputers in the world to public, private, and hybrid clouds, all while delivering the most intuitive and comprehensive user experience for scientists, engineers, developers, and independent software vendors (ISVs).

Atos Unveils Multi-architecture BullSequana XH3000 Supercomputer

Atos today unveiled BullSequana XH3000 supercomputer, a hybrid computing platform based on the OpenSequana architecture enabling the system to be powered by CPUs and GPUs architectures from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA (including its Arm-based Grace CPU) and, eventually, by the SiPearl European HPC microprocessor. The system is scheduled for availability the fourth quarter of this year. […]

New Supercomputer Enables Rugged, Real-Time AI at the Edge

Program managers face hard tradeoffs bringing artificial intelligence to in-the-field use cases. This whitepaper describes a new AI server from One Stop Systems that shows what capabilities they should look for in portable, rugged AI deployments.

HPE to Build Weather Supercomputer for Denmark, Iceland, Ireland and The Netherlands

Building on its UK Met Office win, one of the largest supercomputer deals of the past year, Hewlett Packard Enterprise today announced that it is building a supercomputer for the United Weather Centres – West (UWC-West), a collaboration between the Danish Meteorological Institute, Icelandic Met Office, Met Éireann, Ireland’s national weather service, and the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute to advance […]

Why HPE Cray EX Is the Supercomputer of Choice at Leading Weather Centers

[SPONSORED POST] For decades, compute resources used for weather forecasting have tracked with advances in state-of-the-art supercomputing. Which is to say that the weather segment demands systems with the greatest data ingest and storage capacity combined with the most powerful processing capabilities. As the accuracy of daily weather forecasts and warnings of severe weather depend on high-performance computing combined, increasingly, with artificial intelligence, it is perhaps not surprising that weather segment IT spending has not been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Hyperion Research predicts that it will in fact grow by an astonishing 33 percent between 2021–20241, significantly outpacing

Human Brain Project’s EBRAINS Shares Laptop-to-Supercomputer Brain Simulator

EBRAINS, a new digital research infrastructure set up by the EU-funded Human Brain Project, has made available a brain simulation software, called NEST 3, for use in fields such as neuroscience and robotics. NEST 3 is designed to enable a better representation of entire populations of neurons and to optimize simulator performance. “NEST 3 boosts […]

NVIDIA and HPE to Deliver 2,240-GPU Polaris Supercomputer for Argonne

NVIDIA and Argonne National Laboratory this morning announced Polaris, a GPU-based supercomputer, with 2,2240 NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs delivering 1.4 exaflops of theoretical AI performance and about 44 petaflops of peak double-precision performance, up to 4X faster performance than Argonne’s current supercomputers. Argonne is calling the new system, called “Polaris,” a “testbed” supercomputer to […]
