WARWICK, England, Nov. 8 -- Germany’s Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ, http://www.lrz.de) has chosen Allinea Software (www.allinea.com) to support debugging for the targeted large-scale parallel applications on the IBM SuperMUC system next year.
LRZ, which is the computer centre for Munich's universities and for the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, provides high-end computing facilities for the scientific community in Germany and beyond.
The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) announced the implementation of the IBM system, which will comprise of more than a hundred thousand cores capable of delivering an impressive three peak petaflops/s of processing power. When SuperMUC is installed at LRZ in the middle of 2012, it will most likely be a top 10 system. SuperMUC will follow the 1.0 petaflop "JUGENE" (Jülich Blue Gene" Blue Gene/P supercomputer), already in service at Forschungszentrum Juelich (FZJ), and the 1.25 petaflop Bull-built "Curie" system at the Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique (CEA) in France.
These machines currently occupy 9th and 6th position respectively on the TOP500 list. It will be one of the Tier-0 systems available in the PRACE infrastructure which provides large-scale computational resources and infrastructure for scientific applications throughout Europe.
Dr. Reinhold Bader, deputy group leader of HPC support at LRZ, comments: “Our choice of Allinea’s debugging solutions was determined by a need for both ease of use and scalability which would hold no barriers in using the development tools and could offer researchers superior processing times for their results.”
It will enable LRZ's scientific community to test theories, design experiments and predict outcomes as never before. The supercomputer will be jointly funded by the German federal government and the state of Bavaria.
Mike Fish, CEO of Allinea Software, explains: “We are delighted that LRZ has chosen Allinea to handle its software debugging for its IBM SuperMUC system. Our software solutions are engineered to empower developers with the tools to fix bugs both quickly and easily, being powerful enough for the most advanced parallel programmers, but also accessible for beginners without training. In effect, we’re providing target scale debugging whether programming for 8 cores or 200,000”.
This partnership with LRZ represents yet another significant deal for Allinea in the European market.

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...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....

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.
