HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 11 -- Tyco Electronics (TE) will showcase its latest high-speed interconnects and cable assemblies at SC10, booth #4413, November 15-18 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, Louisiana.
At the event, TE will participate in the SCinet infrastructure build out that includes an InfiniBand network -- a tradition at SC10 that involves the development of a meaningful datacenter infrastructure supported by products from multiple SC10 exhibitors. This infrastructure will provide the necessary network resource for the entire exhibition. TE will demonstrate its broad interconnect capabilities by providing the QSFP copper and QSFP active optical cables to support the InfiniBand network of Quad Data Rate (QDR) 40, 80 and 120-Gbps circuits.
TE will further demonstrate its fiber optics capabilities by linking the QDR circuits to a server in its booth through TE 100-meter QSFP cables. This server will stream a live 3D graphics flight simulator video, sourced from the central SCinet Infrastructure, in the TE booth -- allowing attendees to experience a "cockpit" view of a flight over Salt Lake City, Utah.
In addition, TE will illustrate high-speed capabilities through a demonstration of its next-generation I/O connectors that support 4 x 25G channels.
TE products on display will include STRADA Mesa, STRADA Whisper and RJ point five connectors; active copper cable assemblies; and various magnetics products.
A fresh addition to the product display this year will be new high-speed InfiniTwist cables. The cables were developed earlier this year to improve cable management, reduce parallel-pair termination issues, decrease time-delay skew and improve mode conversion.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
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 study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

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.
