Biden Issues Executive Order Bolstering National Quantum Initiative and Cybersecurity

May 4, 2022

President Joe Biden today issued an Executive Order and a National Security Memorandum boosting the national focus on quantum information sciences (QIS), including quantum computing and cybersecurity concerns. There is currently a global race heating up to leverage QIS for economic and security purposes. The U.S., China, Europe, Japan, the U.K., and many others have mounted well-funded, expanding efforts... Read more…

AI for Science – Early Lessons from NERSC’s Perlmutter Supercomputer

April 28, 2022

Roughly a year ago the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) launched Perlmutter, which was hailed at the time as the “world’s fastest AI supercomputer” by Nvidia whose GPUs provide much of Perlmutter’s power. Since then, NERSC has been aggressively ramping up its mixed AI-HPC workload capability – software, early science apps... Read more…

Today is World Quantum Day – What’s That?

April 14, 2022

Thanks to Planck’s constant — 4.14 x 10-15 eV seconds, rounded up (or 6.63 x 10-34 Joule seconds, if you prefer) — April 14 has been designated World Quantum Day by a loosely affiliated group of scientists and organizations around the world, including the U.S. (see website). The broad idea is to spotlight quantum information science’s rapid growth and, in particular... Read more…

Summit Tackles Damaging Gas Turbine Oscillations

April 11, 2022

Natural gas-fired power plants were the largest source of electricity generation in the United States in 2020, constituting about 40 percent of the country’s power supply – and beyond electricity, gas-fired turbines power hospitals, factories and more. Unfortunately, difficult-to-predict oscillations can damage turbines over time. Now, supercomputer-powered... Read more…

5 HPC Optimization Techniques

For many organizations, decisions about whether to run HPC workloads in the cloud or in on-premises datacenters are less all-encompassing and more about leveraging both infrastructures strategically to optimize HPC workloads across hybrid environments. From multi-clouds to on-premises, dark, edge, and point of presence (PoP) datacenters, data comes from all directions and in all forms while HPC workloads run in every dimension of modern datacenter schemes. HPC has become multi-dimensional and must be managed as such.

This white paper explores several of these new strategies and tools for optimizing HPC workloads across all dimensions to achieve breakthrough results in Microsoft Azure.
