Eurotech is proud to be the recipient of the Intel Cluster Ready Voyager Award 2009
PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 16 -- The Intel Cluster Ready Voyager Award 2009 has been assigned to Eurotech "for advancing toward Petascale Computing with Aurora, the scalable, high-end, Intel Cluster Ready certified HPC system" in a celebration held during the SC09, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis.
"We are honored to be the recipient of this prestigious award," said Walter Rinaldi, Aurora product manager at Eurotech. "Compliance with the Intel Cluster Ready is central in our strategy for delivering cutting-edge technology our customers can capitalize on immediately."
Aurora is the efficient supercomputing solution that has been designed to provide an environment where hardware and software are seamlessly integrated.
"The Intel Cluster Ready certification ensures that Aurora provides a hardware, software, manageability and functionality basis that eliminates the complexity traditionally found in HPC clusters," said Dr. Herbert Cornelius, director Advanced Computing Center, Intel EMEA. "Crucial aspects, such as software compatibility and completeness, interoperability and robust system management are ensured in an Intel Cluster Ready environment such as the one provided by the Aurora cluster solution."
Aurora is the HPC system that is a leader for power efficiency and TCO reduction and packs the most advanced features, such as liquid cooling, the Unified Network Architecture with 100Gb/s bandwidth per node and an on-board programmable accelerator.
Visit Eurotech Booth #745 at SC09 and check out the live demo of the Aurora Supercomputing system.

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
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...

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.
