The petascale era of supercomputing is barely underway, but the effort to reach the exascale level has already begun. The University of Tennessee's Jack Dongarra has been involved with an international project to develop software that will support exascale computing. We got a chance to speak with him before ISC and talk about the work being done. Read more…

Even as we gain a footing in the era of petaflops computing, we have set in motion the exploration of the undiscovered domain of exaflops computing. This year has seen the launching of multiple programs to develop the concepts, architectures, software stack, programming models, and new families of parallel algorithms necessary to enable the practical realization of exaflops capability prior to the end of this decade.

Dr. Ashwini Nanda has been at the center of some of the most cutting-edge HPC projects and initiatives in the world. In this interview, Dr. Nanda talks about high performance computing in India, how he sees the industry today, and what led him to start up his company, HPC Links. 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.
