From 24 Hours to 7 Minutes, Huawei OceanStor Pacific Accelerates Genome Sequencing

[SPONSORED GUEST ARTICLE] International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) is an annual conference that showcases the key technologies in the supercomputing field. It brings together experts from multiple specialist fields, including research into life sciences and genetics to shed light on the origins and mysteries in our lives. HPC, or high-performance computing, is making breakthroughs in supercomputing technologies and is catalyzing genome sequencing research.

Unlock Industrial Cloud Transformation with Ansys and AWS

With increased global competition and rising customer expectations, industrial engineers are under incredible pressure to lower their expenses while maintaining quality and performance. To overcome these challenges, they are transforming their workflows by bringing the physical and digital worlds together. Engineering simulation technology is at the forefront of the fourth industrial revolution, transforming data into actionable insight. Operational efficiency, reliability, durability, and performance of industrial equipment can all be improved and accelerated by simulation and cloud computing.

@HPCpodcast: Software May Be Eating the World – But Is it Eating HPC?

In this episode of the @HPCpodcast, sponsored by Lenovo, Shahin and Doug kick off what we expect to be a series of looks at HPC software and its convergence with traditional enterprise IT software. We cover the evolution of software through phases of IT, we look at the roster of relevant HPC programs from development environment to system administration and end-user requirements, along with traditional and emerging applications. Shahin also shares his somewhat contrarian take on the aphorism about software eating the world.

Dell: The Crucial Government-Industry HPC Link for Accelerating U.S. Global Competitiveness

[SPONSORED GUEST ARTICLE]   HPC-based research and development is expensive, and lagging investments by U.S. industry in HPC could jeopardize this country’s global economic standing. This article provides a summary of a white paper developed on behalf of Dell Technologies by HPC industry analyst firm Hyperion Research, on the crucial role that HPC investments by the U.S. government can play in supporting and accelerating the economic success and global competitiveness of U.S. industry.

Lenovo HPC Helps Forecast Potentially Disastrous Weather Events in Saudi Arabia

[SPONSORED GUEST ARTICLE]  When people think of weather in Saudi Arabia, they probably think of dust storms before flooding.  A team led by Lenovo, WeMET P.C. and the University of Connecticut worked with the Saudi National Center for Meteorology to develop and implement a weather prediction system based on High Performance Computing (HPC) that handles […]

insideHPC-Hyperion Research Interview: ITIF’s Ezell Says Global HPC-AI Leadership Is ‘Up for Grabs’

As we enter supercomputing’s exascale era, global HPC leadership is “up for grabs,” according to the ITIF’s Stephen Ezell, and in several ways the U.S. has relinquished leadership in the development of “feeder streams” that will supply the country’s supercomputing industry in future decades. To address this, Ezell outlines several recommended policies and initiatives the U.S. should take in the face of increasing global HPC competition.

insideHPC-Hyperion Research Interview: Argonne’s Rick Stevens on the Future of Everything – U.S. Post-Exascale Strategy, AI for Science, HPC in 2040 and an Aurora Install Update

In this interview conducted on behalf of HPC analyst firm Hyperion Research, we spoke with Argonne National Laboratory’s Rick Stevens about the present and future of HPC. The starting point for this conversation is a presentation Stevens gave at a Hyperion event in Washington related to implementation of the CHIPS and Science Act and includes his insights on the post-exascale build-out of an integrated network of U.S. supercomputing capacity (the Integrated Research Infrastructure, or IRI). We then look at AI for science and the use of data-driven modeling and simulation, which shows the potential to deliver major performance gains for researchers….
