A researcher at the University of Cincinnati is leveraging the compute and storage resources of the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) to simulate the behavior of elusive cosmic particles in an experiment that may provide answers to the most fundamental questions in our understanding of the evolution of the universe.
Josiah Stamp said: “The individual source of the statistics may easily be the weakest link.” Nowhere is this more true than in the new field of text mining, given the wide variety of textual information. By some estimates, 80 percent of the information available occurs as free-form text which, prior to the development of text mining, needed to be read in its entirety in order for information to be obtained from it.
Seagate Technology, a storage solutions company, and Xyratex, a provider of data storage technology, have announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Seagate will acquire all outstanding shares of Xyratex in an all-cash transaction valued at $13.25 per share, or a total of approximately $374 million, including approximately $80 million in cash on Xyratex’s balance sheet as of August 31, 2013.
IDC, in close partnership with users and vendors in the technical high-performance computing (HPC) industry, created the HPC User Forum, a unique service that identifies buyer/user requirements and vendor capabilities within this market. This forum promotes the interests of HPC users worldwide in industry/commerce, government, and academia. The HPC User Forum is an extension of IDC's long-standing commitment to the global HPC community.
Space station astronauts repaired a crippled cooling system during a rare Christmas Eve spacewalk Tuesday, braving a "mini blizzard" of noxious ammonia as they popped in a new pump.
IBM has announced a definitive agreement to acquire Emeryville, CA-based Aspera. Aspera's technology helps companies securely speed the movement of massive data files around the world. Licensed to clients and partners either in the cloud or on premise, Aspera's high-speed transfer technology reduces transmission times for large files or data sets by up to 99.9 percent
Mellanox Technologies, a supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, announced that its dual port ConnectX-3 10/40GbE Network Interface Cards (NICs) are now fully compatible with qualified Dell PowerEdge servers and Dell networking solutions, providing improved performance at higher efficiency and lower latency with reduced application costs.
During particularly intense solar storms the magnetosphere can “crack,” allowing charged particles to seep in and wreak havoc on the Earth’s technological infrastructure — an event called space weather. Scientists currently do not have the ability to accurately predict the severity of a space weather event or where it will have the most impact. But researchers are hoping to change that.
Dell has announced it is building on its strategic alliance with Microsoft to deliver Windows Azure to Dell customers worldwide through the Dell Cloud Partner Program. This expands upon the previously announced alliance providing Application Development Services on Windows Azure.
Global supercomputer leader Cray announced the Center for Computational Sciences (CCS) at the University of Tsukuba in Japan has put a Cray CS300 cluster supercomputer into production. The new Cray CS300 system has been combined with the University’s current Cray cluster supercomputer, and is providing researchers and scientists with a 1.1 petaflop system for computational science.
The 2014 International Supercomputing Conference is now accepting submissions, ranging from tutorial and birds of a feather (BoF) session proposals, research paper and poster abstracts, as well as student volunteer program applications. The ISC’14 Call for Papers is supported by the IEEE Germany Section.
