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."

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.

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.
