There is no other way to characterize this year: 2008 will be remembered as "the year" -- the year that one petaflops was achieved in Linpack performance. It is a milestone that has been anticipated for almost a decade and a half, and one that was accomplished through the synthesis of two big trends that have emerged as the driving forces for HPC in the last few years -- multicore and heterogeneous computing.

There wasn't much suspense on which machine would nab the top spot on the June TOP500 list, which was released earlier today. Last week, IBM and LANL had already let everyone know that Roadrunner crossed the petaflop finish line first. Nonetheless, the new list portends some big changes ahead for supercomputing. Read more…

Petaflop. Sure it's just a number, but it's a big number. On June 10, IBM announced that its Roadrunner supercomputer reached a record-breaking one petaflop -- a quadrillion floating point operations per second -- using the standard Linpack benchmark. It is the first general-purpose computer to reach this milestone. Read more…
HPC may once have been the sole province for huge corporations and national labs, but with hardware and cloud resources becoming more affordable even small and mid-sized companies are taking advantage.
Between the demands of the data deluge and hardware advancements in both CPUs and GPUs alike, it’s no surprise that large HPC clusters are seeing rapid growth as a part of today’s Big Data escalation.
Storage challenges in the data deluge are nothing new, but as we prepare for unprecedented information overload, the demand innovative storage strategies is at an all-time high. From SSDs to parallel file systems, we’re exploring the gamut of leading tools that are moving the space forward and offering a competitive edge.
Today’s leading organizations are dealing with larger data sets, higher volume and disparate data sources, and the need for faster insights. Don't fall behind to your competitors – discover big data made simple as we make the case for advanced-scale computing.
