SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 31 -- Intersect360 Research has announced the formation of the HPC500, an exclusive community of HPC user organizations at the vanguard of their areas of specialization. Under the auspices of the market intelligence firm, this forward-thinking group will provide insight, based on shared research and real-world experience, that will help shape the future of the HPC industry.
The HPC500 is comprised of a representative cross-section of academic, government, and commercial organizations across all budgets, applications, and geographic areas, including users in both High Performance Technical Computing (HPTC) and High Performance Business Computing (HPBC). Some of the charter members include:
"The HPC500 are the bellwethers of the HPC industry," says Intersect360 Research CEO Addison Snell. "These are the organizations who bring high performance computing technology to bear on challenging problems in science, engineering, and business, and whose insights will help guide the course of development for the HPC industry as a whole."
The HPC500 will share insights and best practices with one another through exclusive communications, live events, and receptions. In turn, the knowledge shared within the prestigious group will form the basis of Intersect360 Research's industry insights.
The first fifty member organizations have already been chosen, and Intersect360 Research will continue to select members throughout 2012 to reach the target 500 members, based on maintaining an accurate demographic representation of the HPC industry. Of the first fifty members:
HPC500 members enjoy numerous benefits, including free access to Intersect360 Research's actionable market intelligence; insightful discussions with other members of the HPC500; exclusive receptions at industry conferences; and exclusive, quarterly conference calls on industry trends and HPC topics of interest.
More information on HPC500, including benefits and application for membership, can be found at www.hpc500.com.

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.
