IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 25 — Solarflare, the leading provider of application-intelligent networking I/O, today announced its demonstration of a Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) for its ApplicationOnload Engine (AOE) platform at the RSA Conference. The demonstration will show that compared with a software based implementation an implementation of SNORT on the AOE FPGA-based application accelerator can deliver up to one order magnitude increase in detection rates while freeing up the host processor for other work, enabling the system to detect intrusions at sustained 10Gbps line rates. Moreover, since the AOE includes a standard 10GbE server network adapter PCIe card, the system enables the ubiquitous, decentralized security, any server in the network can now deliver accelerated NID services. The NIDs application was developed in collaboration with researchers at The Future Computing Technology Laboratory at Clemson University.

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.
