Sept. 15 -- PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, takes part in SC10 (Supercomputing 2010) conference on November 13–19, 2010. The 23th Supercomputing conference is held this year in New Orleans, La.
PRACE participates in the SC10 exhibition together with DEISA, the Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications, at booth number 4021. PRACE members will present the current and future services of PRACE and answer your questions. You are cordially invited to visit the booth. Take part in the PRACE / DEISA treasure hunt to win an iPod Touch. Winners are drawn daily.
The PRACE BoF at SC10 "PRACE – The European HPC infrastructure" created together with DEISA, takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 17 from 12.15-1:30 p.m. in room 389. The session will present the latest news about the PRACE RI. It covers the current status and the future plans; the results to be expected during the EC funded implementation projects, the integration of services currently provided by DEISA within the European HPC ecosystem, and collaboration opportunities for academia and industry.
The session is led by Dietmar Erwin, FZJ.

The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is an international nonprofit association with its seat in Brussels. The PRACE Research Infrastructure (RI) provides a persistent world-class high performance computing (HPC) service for scientists and researchers from academia and industry. The PRACE leadership systems form the apex of the performance pyramid and are well integrated into the European HPC ecosystem. The preparation and implementation of the PRACE RI receive EC funding under grants RI-211528 and FP7-261557. www.prace-project.eu.
In EU FP7, the DEISA Consortium has continued to support and further develop the distributed high performance computing infrastructure and its services through the DEISA2 project funded for another three years until spring 2011 (Contract RI 222919). Activities and services relevant for applications enabling, operation, and technologies have been continued and further enhanced, as these are indispensable for the effective support of computational sciences in the HPC area.

Today at the International Supercomputing Conference in Leipzing, Germany, Jack Dongarra presented on a proposed benchmark that could carry a bit more weight than its older Linpack companion. The high performance conjugate gradient (HPCG) concept takes into account new architectures for new applications, while shedding the floating point....
Not content to let the Tianhe-2 announcement ride alone, Intel rolled out a series of announcements around its Knights Corner and Xeon Phi products--all of which are aimed at adding some options and variety for a wider base of potential users across the HPC spectrum. Today at the International Supercomputing Conference, the company's Raj....

The world's largest supercomputers, like Tianhe-2, are great at traditional, compute-intensive HPC workloads, such as simulating atomic decay or modeling tornados. But data-intensive applications--such as mining big data sets for connections--is a different sort of workload, and runs best on a different sort of computer.

Researchers are finding innovative uses for Gordon, the 285 teraflop supercomputer housed at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) that has a unique Flash-based storage system. Since going online, researchers have put the incredibly fast I/O to use on a wide variety of workloads, ranging from chemistry to political science.

The advent of low-power mobile processors and cloud delivery models is changing the economics of computing. But just as an economy car is good at different things than a full size truck, an HPC workload still has certain computing demands that neither the fastest smartphone nor the most elastic cloud cluster can fulfill.

For all the progress we've made in IT over the last 50 years, there's one area of life that has steadfastly eluded the grasp of computers: understanding human language. Now, researchers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) are utilizing a Hadoop cluster on its Longhorn supercomputer to move the state of the art of language processing a little bit further.

Titan, the Cray XK7 at the Oak Ridge National Lab that debuted last fall as the fastest supercomputer in the world with 17.59 petaflops of sustained computing power, will rely on its previous LINPACK test for the upcoming edition of the Top 500 list.
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.
