ALBANY, NY, May 31 -- The Science, Technology and Innovation Division (NYSTAR) of New York’s chief economic development agency has named HyGie-Tech USA an approved user of the Computational Center for Nanotechnology Innovations (CCNI) supercomputer at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and the RPI Technology Park in Troy, NY. “NYSTAR’s programs help companies leverage their technology strengths and create jobs,” explained HyGie-Tech USA CEO Robert L. Domenici. “CCNI supports research in fields such as ours where supercomputing can expand understanding.”
HyGie-Tech USA, Inc. (Albany, NY) provides particle and airflow modeling software and services that use HG_Flow technology, a high-performance risk-oriented CFD (roCFD) system, to support the protection of critical infrastructure against airborne contamination. By applying specialized routines, algorithms, and a database of 13,000 potentially harmful agents to data acquired from a 3D laser scanner or digitized drawings, HG_Flow creates highly-accurate models of airflow and particle movement within the scanned environment. The software’s high-speed calculations do not require a supercomputer, but will utilize the CCNI machine for research and development.
Home to one of the world’s most powerful university-based supercomputers, the CCNI is a partnership between RPI, IBM, and New York State to promote nanotechnology and the continued miniaturization electronics. As a division of Empire State Development (ESD), New York’s main economic development agency, NYSTAR helps businesses to become more competitive through innovative technologies such as supercomputing. By strengthening the technology capabilities of college and universities, NYSTAR also helps to create the intellectual capacity that drives high-tech growth.

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.
