MELBOURNE, Fla., Dec. 14 – Sabalcore Computing Inc., a leading high performance computing (HPC) cloud service provider, and CD-adapco, a leading provider of computer-aided engineering (CAE) software, have teamed to support the University of Missouri-Columbia (UM) Formula SAE racing team for the 2012-2013 season.
Each year the University of Missouri-Columbia designs and builds a quarter-scale formula-style race car from scratch to compete against other universities in various design judging and dynamic racing events. It is a very competitive design series and vehicle computer aided dynamics simulation has become a very important part of designing a winning car.
Students will use CD-adapco's STAR-CCM+ for advanced aerodynamics simulations on their vehicle. Their simulations require large amounts of processing power to model complex aerodynamics simulations. Due to limitations in the university's computational resources, the time to run advanced simulations becomes very prohibitive to the design process. To solve this problem, Sabalcore has donated processing time on their HPC Cloud service allowing UM remote access to Sabalcore's powerful compute resources on-demand. CD-adapco donated STAR-CCM+ Power-On-Demand which makes using HPC efficient and cost effective. Students are able to quickly and easily scale up their computational resources.
"Sabalcore has become a very popular compute resource for CAE. As a matter of fact, STAR-CCM+ is now the most popular commercial application used on our systems." said Dr. Kevin. Van Workum, CTO Sabalcore Computing Inc. "We are happy to sponsor the University of Missouri-Columbia Formula SAE Racing Team. With Sabalcore's high performance computing services, the students will solve larger and more detailed problems that they could not otherwise solve."
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) is a non-profit educational and scientific organization dedicated to advancing mobility technology for use in everyday life. The Formula SAE competition requires SAE student members from universities around the world to conceive, design, fabricate, and compete with single-seat, open-wheel race cars.

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.
