HAMBURG, June 17-21 -- Over the course of the last four days MEGWARE presented itself with a new booth design and three TOP500 projects at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC). Europe is leading Conference and Exhibition on High Performance Computing, Networking and Storage.
Visitors could look at current product developments at the MEGWARE booth, including the warm water direct-cooling system ColdCon, which is currently used for the CooLMUC supercomputer at the Leibniz-computer center in Garching.
With the publication of the TOP500 list within the frame of the ISC’12, it is clear that MEGWARE is represented with three projects on the list of the most powerful supercomputers for the first time.
The HPC-Cluster MOGON, which was installed at the University of Mainz in the past weeks, is in place #81 with 33,792 processor cores and 204.99 Tflop/s. It takes 8th place among the German HPC systems. The ABEL-Cluster at the University of Oslo, which MEGWARE also installed in the past weeks, is ranked #96 with its 10,080 cores and 178.6 Tflop/s. The third MEGWARE system is the VSC-2. Austria’s most powerful supercomputer has been in operation at the Technical University of Vienna since May 2011. Last year it got started in 56th place. Currently, it is in 117th place.
MEGWARE is the only German supplier of HPCs that is currently represented on the TOP500 list with three projects.
For MEGWARE, ISC’12 was successful. We would like to thank all visitors and look forward to welcoming you at our booth at the ISC’13 in Leipzig next year.
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.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

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.

Supercomputers at the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have worked on important computational problems such as collapse of the atomic state, the optimization of chemical catalysts, and now modeling popping bubbles.
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.
