MCOPt multicore optimization software to improve system performance
HAMBURG, June 2 -- eXludus Technologies, the leading developer of multicore system optimization software, today announced that the White Rose Grid, based at the University of York, England, has signed an agreement to use eXludus' MCOPt software.
MCOPt software dramatically improves multicore system performance by adding an innovative resource management layer to Linux systems. MCOPt delivers increased job throughput and faster response times, while preventing performance-limiting shared resource conflicts and eliminating cluster/cloud job submission latencies. Requiring zero changes to existing applications, MCOPt users are able to realize the benefits of implementation immediately.
Tests conducted by the White Rose Grid have shown that overall system throughput is enhanced when running mixed memory workloads -- particularly with respect to large memory jobs when the system is under heavy load. MCOPt makes it easier for researchers to concentrate on their work without the distraction of scheduling work via batch job systems.
"MCOPt helps White Rose Grid users to collectively achieve more work, more simply, more quickly. This delivers greater benefit per unit cost which is so important now," stated Aaron Turner, White Rose Grid technical manager at York.
"We are extremely pleased that the White Rose Grid has selected MCOPt to improve overall system performance and to reduce the burden of optimizing system throughput," added Dale Geldart, chief executive officer of eXludus Technologies. "MCOPt helps users get results faster through more efficient use of processing capacity and prevents resource overload that may occur when many applications run concurrently on large core count systems," Mr. Geldart concluded.

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.
