Faster simulation and enhanced code generation achieved via Parallel Computing Toolbox
NATICK, Mass., Dec. 15 -- MathWorks today announced a new capability that accelerates code generation build times for engineers working on designs that are componentized with model reference. This speed enhancement is available through Real-Time Workshop, a code generation tool that now leverages the performance scaling capabilities of Parallel Computing Toolbox and MATLAB Distributed Computing Server (MDCS). The capability also extends existing parallel computing support in other MathWorks tools to improve the overall efficiency of working with large-scale applications, including computationally intensive design tasks such as updating models and running simulations.
In addition to Real-Time Workshop, Parallel Computing Toolbox and MATLAB Distributed Computing Server support other products for Model-Based Design including Simulink, Simulink Design Optimization, Simulink Control Design, and Simulink Verification and Validation. Using the functionality provided by MathWorks parallel tools, engineers can now easily take advantage of high-performance hardware -- from multicore and multiprocessor desktops to clusters -- in their design exploration, verification and validation, and implementation activities.
"Engineers and scientists need an easy way to exploit high-performance computing resources in order to run large-scale simulations and generate code faster," said Silvina Grad-Freilich, manager of parallel computing marketing at MathWorks. "MathWorks is addressing this need across the MATLAB and Simulink product families so that, whether users are performing technical computations or Model-Based Design, they can scale their applications to multicore and multiprocessor desktops, clusters, and grids."

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.

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.
