SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, November 13 -- Flow Science, the developers of FLOW-3D, a highly-accurate computational fluid dynamics (CFD) package, has won for the second year in a row, the Intel Cluster Ready Voyager Award, part of the Intel Cluster Ready Partner Appreciation Awards at SC 12. The Voyager Awards recognize those organizations that have contributed to Intel Cluster Ready advancement, total available market growth and helped penetrate the much sought after but elusive "missing middle" for customers moving to cluster-based solutions.
CFD lies at the core of most industrial design cycles in hydraulics, aerospace, casting, microfluidics and other engineering applications. As hardware architectures evolve, engineers are constantly trying to solve large complex simulations with reduced runtimes in order to optimize their design cycles. Flow Science developers have collaborated with Intel technical staff for over 7 years to improve the accuracy and performance of FLOW-3D using Intel’s constantly evolving architecture and toolsets to meet its customers demand for accurate solutions in less time for larger data sets.
"Working with the Intel support team, we were able to exceed what had been a previous scaling limit of 32 cores. After enabling our software for distributed memory parallelism, we were able to run on more than 32 cores of Intel’s latest processor architecture and find out how the software performed," said Anup Gokarn, Senior FLOW-3D/MP Developer.
Earlier this year, Flow Science collaborated with Silicon Mechanics, a leading manufacturer of rackmount servers, storage, and high-performance computing clusters, to offer a turnkey cluster solution for FLOW-3D/MP customers. The cluster solution features the most advanced technology from Intel; pre-installed FLOW-3D/MP; an exclusive on-line configurator; and integrated Intel Cluster Ready registered software and certified hardware.
The turnkey cluster solution developed for FLOW-3D/MP is an Intel Cluster Ready-registered application and has been validated on Intel Xeon processor Product Family hardware, thereby ensuring that users enjoy the same solutions they’ve come to expect from workstations. Users are guaranteed that the hardware and software will work correctly together.

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.
