Preparing for Manycore

Oct 13, 2014 |

One of several insightful presentations to come out of the DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship was delivered by Katie Antypas, Services Department Head, National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In “Preparing Your Application for Advanced Manycore Architectures,” Antypas gives a humorous and on-point overview of major architectural trends in HPC and Read more…

PayPal Finds Order from Chaos with HPC

Sep 24, 2014 |

At the 2014 HPC User Forum in Seattle, Ryan Quick and Arno Kolster from PayPal describe how the company is using HPC to transform its chaotic real-time server data into intelligent, actionable insight. The unique “Systems Intelligence” approach uses HP’s Moonshot server powered by TI processors to aggregate, analyze and act on transaction data in real time.

Programmability Matters

Jun 30, 2014 |

While discussions of HPC architectures have long centered on performance gains, that is not the only measure of success, according to Petteri Laakso of Vector Fabrics. Spurred by ever-proliferating core counts, programmability is taking on new prominence. Vector Fabrics is a Netherlands-based company that specializes in multicore software parallelization tools, so programmability is high on Read more…

Managing Memory at Multicore

Sep 18, 2013 |

With the advance of multicore and manycore processors, managing caches becomes more difficult. Researchers at MIT suggest that it might make sense to let software, rather than hardware, manage these high-speed on-chip memory banks.
