British systems integrator Viglen has won a £4 million contract to outfit JASMIN, a UK-based environmental scientific data analysis and simulation facility, with petascale-level data processing and storage capabilities. The contract calls for the design, supply and installation of a turnkey integrated HPC computing, storage and network solution at the site, which is run by Read more…
One of the main enterprise uses for high performance computing (HPC) is to bring product designs to market faster via a process known as rapid prototyping. This week three popular companies – Unilever, Syngenta and Infineum – have partnered with the HPC facilities at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC’s) Hartree Centre, drawn by Read more…
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s High Performance Computing Innovation Center (HPCIC) in the US and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) in the United Kingdom are combining efforts to help industry stakeholders in both countries leverage supercomputing to accelerate innovation and boost economic competitiveness.
NVIDIA will develop exascale-class supercomputers that feature hundreds of thousands of GPUs for the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the organizations announced in June. The massive, government-funded systems will be used to further scientific research in the UK, and create a center of excellence for parallel programming.
