Dr Debora Sijacki wins 2019 PRACE Ada Lovelace Award for HPC

Today the European PRACE initiative announced that Dr Debora Sijacki from the University of Cambridge will receive the 2019 PRACE Ada Lovelace Award for HPC for her outstanding contributions to and impact on high performance computing in Europe. As a computational cosmologist she has achieved numerous high-impact results in astrophysics based on numerical simulations on state-of-the-art supercomputers.

OpenCB a Next Generation for Big Data Analytics

This paper introduced development work being undertaken at Cambridge to create a new state of the art omics analysis hardware and software platform utilizing the open source software framework called OpenCB

Designing Interfaces in Materials with Supercomputers

Designing materials atom-by-atom has long been a science fiction dream. Georg Schusteritsch and Chris Pickard of the University of Cambridge are bringing science fiction one step closer to reality using the UK National Supercomputing Facility, ARCHER to reveal the interfaces forming within and between materials. “We have developed a general first-principles approach to predict the crystal structure of interfaces in materials, a technique that represents a major step towards computationally developing materials with specially designed interfaces.”

Mellanox Powers OpenStack Cloud at University of Cambridge

Today Mellanox announced that University of Cambridge has selected Mellanox End-to-End Ethernet interconnect solution including Spectrum SN2700 Ethernet switches, ConnectX-4 Lx NICs and LinkX cables for its OpenStack-based scientific research cloud. This new win has expanded Mellanox’s existing footprint of InfiniBand solution and empowers the UoC to realize its vision of HPC and Cloud convergence through high-speed cloud networks at 25/50/100Gb/s throughput.
