The ISC family includes a global conference and exhibition for high-performance computing, networking and storage, the ISC Cloud international conference on HPC and data processing in the Cloud, and ISC Big Data, which brings together experts from research and industry.
Delivering one teraflop of performance, the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor offers highly parallel processing without overhauling applications or code. While the Intel Xeon processor E5 family remains the preferred choice for the majority of applications, Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors provide more efficient performance for highly parallel applications.
On energy.gov, we've been highlighting the incredible work being done with supercomputers at the Department's National Labs. Supercomputers are changing the way scientists study the origins of our universe, design new drugs for public health and forecast global weather patterns. The National Labs have some of the most significant high performance computing resources available, including 32 of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world.
Modeling efforts of staggering scale, simulations performed in high-definition resolutions and big data initiatives are all driving data-intensive research projects in contemporary high-performance computing environments. At Cray, we are responding to rising storage requirements across a variety of storage workflows, from ingest to archive.
Tianhe-2 (Milky Way-2), a system developed by China’s National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) and to be deployed at the National Supercomputer Center in Guangzho, China remains the No. 1 system with 33.86 petaflop/s on the Linpack benchmark. The system currently has 16,000 nodes each with two Intel Xeon Ivy Bridge processors and three Xeon Phi processors for a combined total of 3,120,000 computing cores.
Tianhe-2, a supercomputer developed by China’s National University of Defense Technology, is the world’s new No. 1 system with a performance of 33.86 petaflop/s on the Linpack benchmark, according to the 41stedition of the twice-yearlyTOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers. The list was announced June 17 during the opening session of the 2013 International Supercomputing Conference in Leipzig, Germany.
