Chief technology officer to present on next generation HPC architectures
FREMONT, Calif., June 17 -- SGI announced today that it will showcase a number of new and innovative high-performance computing (HPC), datacenter, storage and Visual User Experience (VUE) solutions at the upcoming International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) 2009, taking place from June 23rd to 26th in Hamburg, Germany. SGI CTO Dr. Eng Lim Goh, an expert on next generation computing architecture, will also lead two technology sessions on the topic of HPC architectures of the future.
SGI Speaking Sessions: "Scalable HPC Architecture for the Many-Core Era," presented by Dr. Eng Lim Goh, senior vice president and chief technology officer at SGI.
Date: Thursday, June 25
Time: 10:30 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. CEST
Location: Hall 3, CCH-Congress Center Hamburg
Topic: The IT industry has moved from the era of regular clock speed improvements to the new many-core era. This is a fundamental change to which even consumer PC users and applications will need to adapt. This session will focus on the implications for productive high-performance and clustered computing architectures.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
