HPC in the Cloud Research Roundup

Mar 29, 2013 |

<img src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpccloud/cloud_graphic_150x.jpg” alt=”” width=”94″ height=”81″ />Our top HPC cloud research story this week lays out a lightweight approach to implementing virtual machine monitors. Other items explore an innovative parallel cloud storage system, HPC-to-cloud migration, anywhere-anytime cluster monitoring, and a framework for cloud storage.

On the Other Side of Moore’s Law

Mar 22, 2013 |

<img src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Pawlowski_100.jpg” alt=”” width=”95″ height=”108″ />Intel Senior Fellow Stephen Pawlowski has watched Moore’s Law in action for 30 years, helping to develop new microprocessors at the company that Gordon Moore co-founded. Through that time he has made some observations and developed a prediction of his own: A faster version of Moore’s Law called Moore Squared, the topic of his coming keynote at ISC’13. We ask him a few questions.
