CALGARY, Alberta, Nov. 8 – CoolIT Systems Inc, the leading supplier of liquid cooling solutions for high-performance desktops, enterprise servers, and high-performance clusters has teamed up with Montreal’s Ciara Technologies Inc. in the Demand Liquid Alliance to use Rack Direct Contact Liquid Cooling to enable unparalleled performance at the CPU and GPU level. this joint solution will be showcased in CoolIT System’s booth at SC12 in Salt Lake City (Booth #4629).
Experienced with CoolIT’s technology, Ciara is once again looking to harness liquid cooling to push the boundaries of computing productivity. “We are overclocking our CPU’s in a 1u chassis allowing for densities never seen before. Our customers are demanding unprecedented compute productivity and CoolIT’s Rack DCLC allows us to deliver”, said Darcy Letemplier, VP of Engineering, Ciara Technologies. Rack DCLC is allowing Ciara to build and test server architecture in a 1u form factor that was previously only available in a 3u chassis.
By allowing for a 67% increase in compute density per rack, Ciara’s new overclocked server architecture will not only allow for more compute productivity per core; but will also allow customers to fit high-powered clusters in much smaller space.
“We are amazed at the performance levels that Ciara has been able to achieve once the cooling limitations were removed. The Ciara engineering team has taken an innovative approach with their hardware decisions and by leveraging the liquid cooling advantage, they have created a unique offering for the High Performance Computing market.” Geoff Lyon, CEO & CTO, CoolIT Systems.

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 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...

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.
