Wave Energy Gains Momentum with HPC

Jul 30, 2014 |

You are no doubt familiar with solar parks and wind farms, but what about wave farms? With the disastrous implications of climate change pushing government and industry to pursue greener energy sources, there has been increased interest in solar and wind power, but another renewable is also on the rise: wave energy. Wave farms, also called wave Read more…

Cray Goes Back to the Future for Weather Forecasting

Feb 16, 2014 |

Weather forecasting has come a long way since June of 1977, when the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) first contracted Cray to deliver one of its early Cray-1A systems across the pond. This was the first time a Cray found its way to the old country—an installation that set the stage for Read more…

IBM’s New Deal Captures Refocused HPC Strategy

Jan 29, 2014 |

It’s been quite a month of news for IBM, with the sale of its x86 business to Lenovo, followed by some intense questioning about what this means for their vision (and future) with HPC customers in academia and government in particular. And while some might call this the centerpiece of a shift in strategy, something Read more…

ADEPT Emphasizes Energy-Efficient Parallelism

Aug 29, 2013 |

The EU-funded ADEPT project is exploring the energy-efficient use of parallel technologies by combining the talents of HPC and the embedded sector. The goal is to develop a tool for modeling and predicting the power and performance characteristics of parallel systems.

Taking a Disruptive Approach to Exascale

Aug 18, 2011 |

A recent DOE workshop that focused on exascale challenges and current gaps in research and ideology provided food for thought for those seeking a “disruptive” approach to this next level of computing. We highlight a handful of the presentations, delivered by some of the most noteworthy researchers and practitioners in the field.

Data Centers Consuming Less Power than Predicted

Aug 2, 2011 |

A new study that contradicts the influential EPA report about a doubling of data center energy consumption made waves this week.

DOE Research Group Makes Case for Exascale

Feb 21, 2011 |

Exascale computing promises incredible science breakthroughs, but it won’t come easily, and it won’t come free.

Supercomputers When They Sizzle

Beating the heat with liquid cooling.

Green IT Is for Real

Apr 14, 2010 |

When I think about all the hype for Green IT, I always ask myself, where is the beef? Or where is the real green as in greenbacks?

IBM Ponders the Exascale

Dec 9, 2009 |

Over the next ten years of HPC history, the mainstream teraflop systems of today will evolve into the petaflop systems of tomorrow, while the leading-edge petaflop supercomputers will be replaced by exaflop machines. As the most diverse player in the HPC server business, IBM has some unique advantages as it charts a path toward the exascale milestone.
