Oct 9, 2015 |

The High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), member of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing, today reported completion of the second upgrade of its supercomputing-installation. The Cray (NASDAQ: CRAY) XC40 system at HLRS – code named “Hazel Hen” – delivers a peak performance of 7.42 Petaflops, almost twice as much as the previous system known as Read more…

The Necessary Marriage of Big Data with Exascale

Jun 29, 2015 |

Failure to incorporate big data computing insights into efforts to achieve exascale computing would be a critical mistake argue Daniel Reed and Jack Dongarra in their article, Exascale Computing and Big Data, published in the July issue of the Communications of the ACM journal. While scientific and big data computing have historically taken different development Read more…

Tracking the Trajectory to Exascale and Beyond

Jun 8, 2015 |

The future of high performance computing is now being defined both in how it will be achieved and in the ways in which it will impact diverse fields in science and technology, industry and commerce, and security and society. At this time there is great expectation but much uncertainty creating a climate of opportunity, challenge, Read more…

India Greenlights $730 Million Supercomputing Grid

Mar 26, 2015 |

The Indian government has approved a seven-year supercomputing program worth $730 million (Rs. 4,500-crore) intended to restore the nation’s status as a world-class computing power.

The Read more…

Is China Set to Unveil Record-Shattering Supercomputer?

May 28, 2013 |

When so many folks from the HPC community come at us with credible details about something as important as the next top system on the planet, it’s hard to ignore. To quiet things down (and hopefully bring forth more information) we’ve published the consistent details about what we know from (very) credible sources.about this year’s upcoming Top500 announcement. While unconfimed, we have….

Debugging at Titan Scale

Apr 15, 2013 |

Getting scientific applications to scale across Titan’s 300,000 compute cores means there will be bugs. Finding those bugs is where Allinea DDT comes in.

SGI Snatches Oil and Gas Giant with “Cool” Super

Mar 26, 2013 |

<img src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/icex.jpg” alt=”” width=”94″ height=”83″ />European oil and gas giant, Total, has looked to SGI again to supply a super that meets their modeling and simulation needs–but that is focused on power and cooling. The result, based on the SGI ICE X, should pull a top ten ranking on this year’s Top 500 list–the most powerful commercial….
