HPE-SGI to Tackle Exascale and Enterprise Targets

November 22, 2016

At first blush, and maybe second blush too, Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) purchase of SGI seems like an unambiguous win-win. SGI’s advanced shared memory technology, its popular UV product line (Hanna), deep vertical market expertise, and services-led go-to-market capability all give HPE a leg up in its drive to remake itself. Bear in mind HPE came into existence just a year ago with the split of Hewlett-Packard. The computer landscape, including HPC, is shifting with still unclear consequences. One wonders who’s next on the deal block following Dell’s recent merger with EMC. Read more…

SC16 Precision Medicine Panel Proves HPC Matters

November 16, 2016

In virtually every way, precision medicine (PM) is a poster child for the HPC Matters mantra and was a good choice for the Monday panel opening SC16 (HPC Impacts on Precision Medicine: Life’s Future – The Next Frontier in Healthcare). PM’s tantalizing promise is to touch all of us, not just writ large but individually – effectively fighting disease, enhancing health and lifestyle, extending life, and necessarily contributing to basic science along the way. All of this can only done with HPC. Read more…

IDC’s Conway Sets Stage for SC16 Precision Medicine Panel

November 4, 2016

Kicking off SC this year is what promises to be a fascinating panel – HPC Impacts on Precision Medicine: Life’s Future–The Next Frontier in Healthcare. In this pre-SC16 Q&A, Steve Conway, research VP in IDC's High Performance Computing group and moderator of the panel, sets the stage. HPC, of course, has been transforming life sciences and medicine for nearly two decades. Read more…

SC16 Showcases Use of HPC and Cloud In Cancer Research

October 19, 2016

The effort to attack cancer with HPC resources has been growing for years. Indeed, it’s accurate to say the sequencing of the human genome was as much a tour de force of HPC as of the new DNA sequencers. Read more…

New Memristor Closely Mimics Synapse Signal Dynamics

October 3, 2016

Efforts to emulate signaling produced at nerve cell synapses aren’t new. Many different approaches – CMOS circuits and ‘ionic-drift’ based memristor technology, for example – have been tried, all with various shortcomings. Last week, researchers from UMass, Loughborough University, Hewlett Packard Labs, and Brookhaven National Laboratory reported a new approach that closely mimics the Ca2+ diffusion dynamics that occur at synapses Read more…

Dell EMC Engineers Strategy to Democratize HPC

September 29, 2016

The freshly minted Dell EMC division of Dell Technologies is on a mission to take HPC mainstream with a strategy that hinges on engineered solutions, beginning with a focus on three industry verticals: manufacturing, research and life sciences. "Unlike traditional HPC where everybody bought parts, assembled parts and ran the workloads and did iterative engineering, we want folks to focus on time to innovation and let us worry about the infrastructure," said Jim Ganthier, senior vice president, validated solutions organization at Dell EMC Converged Platforms Solution Division.

New Genomics Pipeline Combines AWS, Local HPC, and Supercomputing

September 22, 2016

Declining DNA sequencing costs and the rush to do whole genome sequencing (WGS) of large cohort populations – think 5000 subjects now, but many more thousands soon – presents a formidable computational challenge to researchers attempting to make sense of large cohort datasets. Read more…

Larry Smarr Helps NCSA Celebrate 30th Anniversary

September 20, 2016

Throughout the past year, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications has been celebrating its 30th anniversary. On Friday, Larry Smarr, whose unsolicited 1983 proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF) begat NCSA in 1985 and helped spur NSF to create not one but five national centers for supercomputing, gave a celebratory talk at NCSA.
