High-performance computing can help a business to become more efficient and more productive. And, for a small business, HPC can be a game changer, helping it leapfrog ahead of the competition by reducing its costs and dramatically improving its time to market.
For the fourth consecutive time, Tianhe-2, a supercomputer developed by China’s National...
Welcome to the second installment of Scientific Computing's holiday gift guide. This...
New observations with ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile have revealed alignments over the largest structures ever discovered in the Universe. A European research team has found that the rotation axes of the central supermassive black holes in a sample of quasars are parallel to each other over distances of billions of light-years.
Researchers have published the first research to use computational modeling to predict and identify the metabolic products of gastrointestinal (GI) tract microorganisms.
This 100x image of Titanium Shavings received an Image of Distinction designation in the 2013 Nikon Small World Photomicrophotography Competition, which recognizes excellence in photography with the optical microscope. The photographer was Bert Siegel of Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences.
The Huawei FusionServer X6800 is a next-generation data center server optimized to support all business in one solution. This X6800 provides a broad portfolio of server nodes to flexibly meet elastic configuration requirements of differentiated services for computing, storage, and I/O resources. It also supports simplified system management and efficient operation and maintenance (O&M).
HPC has always embraced the leading edge of technology and, as such, acts as the trailbreaker and scout for enterprise and business customers. HPC has highlighted and matured the abilities of previously risky devices, like GPUs, that enterprise customers now leverage to create competitive advantage. GPUs have moved beyond “devices with potential” to “production devices” that are used for profit generation.
Of course, I remember the Berlin Wall being pummeled to gravel 25 years ago. I always hated what it symbolized, and I was excited. I was in Fayetteville, AR, at the finest hotel in town (a multi-story Holiday Inn at the time) when I saw the Germans storming the wall and whack-a-mole-ing the wall with ballpeen hammers. How I came to be in Arkansas is a rather remarkable and foreboding story.
The Soyuz TMA-13M crew, European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Alexander Gerst, Roscosmos cosmonaut Max Suraev, and NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman, in their Soyuz spacecraft that will fly them back to Earth after almost six months on the International Space Station.
Iceotope's PetaGen liquid cooling system is designed for High Performance Computing (HPC) and suitable for Supercomputing and data center facilities. The system uses minimal energy resources, has zero dependence on clean water, streamlines needlessly bloated and expensive data center facilities, and improves IT performance.
SGI has recently upgraded NASA's flagship supercomputer, Pleiades, with new, more powerful hardware in order to help meet the agency's increasing demand for high-end computing (HEC) resources.
In an unexpected mashup of financial and mechanical engineering, researchers have discovered that the same modeling used to forecast fluctuations in the stock market can be used to predict aspects of animal behavior.
This 4x image of Aphaenogaster senilis (ant worker) received an Image of Distinction designation in the 2013 Nikon Small World Photomicrophotography Competition, which recognizes excellence in photography with the optical microscope. The photo was composed using image stacking by Dimitri Seeboruth of Paris, France.
The introduction of newer sequencing methodologies, DNA microarrays and high-throughput technology has resulted in a deluge of large data sets that require new strategies to clean, normalize and analyze the data. All of these and more are covered in approximately 300 pages with extraordinary clarity and minimal mathematics.
An interview with PNNL’s Karol Kowalski, Capability Lead for NWChem Development - NWChem is an open source high performance computational chemistry tool developed for the Department of Energy at Pacific Northwest National Lab in Richland, WA. I recently visited with Karol Kowalski, Capability Lead for NWChem Development, who works in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) at PNNL.
International Data Corporation (IDC) has announced the eighth round of recipients of the HPC Innovation Excellence Award at the SC'14 high performance computing (HPC) conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. The HPC Innovation Excellence Awards recognize noteworthy achievements by users of high performance computing technologies.
HPC Innovation Excellence Award: Argonne National Laboratory, NRG (Netherlands), SCK-CEN (Belgium), TerraPower, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-ChampaignNovember 17, 2014 6:49 pm | Award Winners
Researchers from Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign teamed with nuclear reactor designers and research laboratories in the United States and Europe to enable high-fidelity, cost-saving simulations to design the next-generation of nuclear reactors using the computational fluid dynamics code Nek5000.
