May 20 -- PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, takes an active role at ISC'10, Hamburg, Germany, on May 30 – June 3, 2010.
A full morning is dedicated to the "PRACE Open Dialog with European Tier-0 Users" on Tuesday, June 1 at 9:00 in the ISC'10 conference room B2.2.
Thomas Eickermann, PRACE project manager, FZJ, Germany, presents an update on PRACE, the current status and the next steps. Axel Berg from SARA, The Netherlands, gives a presentation on benchmark results on the PRACE prototypes. Iris Christadler, LRZ, Germany, talks about evaluation of performance and productivity of new HPC programming languages. Turlough Downes, DCU, Ireland, shares his experiences using the PRACE resources from a user point of view in his presentation "Massively parallel simulations of astrophysical turbulence". Ana Bela Dias, NCF, The Netherlands, describes how to access the PRACE HPC resources. The networking session ends with conclusions and discussion.
The PRACE Award 2010, honoring an outstanding paper on innovative use of high performance computing by a young researcher, will be presented at the opening session of ISC'10 on Monday, May 31 starting at 10:15 in hall 3.
PRACE participates also in the ISC'10 exhibition at booth number 125. PRACE project members will present the current and future steps of PRACE and answer your questions. More information is available at http://www.prace-project.eu/events/isc10-may-31-june3-hamburg-germany.
The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) prepares the creation of a persistent pan-European HPC service, consisting of several tier-0 centres providing European researchers with access to capability computers and forming the top level of the European HPC ecosystem. PRACE is a project funded in part by the EU's 7th Framework Programme. The PRACE project receives funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n° RI-211528. www.prace-project.eu.
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.
04/15/2013 | Bull | “50% of HPC users say their largest jobs scale to 120 cores or less.” How about yours? Are your codes ready to take advantage of today’s and tomorrow’s ultra-parallel HPC systems? Download this White Paper by Analysts Intersect360 Research to see what Bull and Intel’s Center for Excellence in Parallel Programming can do for your codes.
In this demonstration of SGI DMF ZeroWatt disk solution, Dr. Eng Lim Goh, SGI CTO, discusses a function of SGI DMF software to reduce costs and power consumption in an exascale (Big Data) storage datacenter.
The Cray CS300-AC cluster supercomputer offers energy efficient, air-cooled design based on modular, industry-standard platforms featuring the latest processor and network technologies and a wide range of datacenter cooling requirements.
