Thomas Sterling’s ISC Keynote Celebrates Frontier and the Exascale Tour de Force

June 1, 2022

For a change, said Thomas Sterling, long-time ISC keynoter and HPC pioneer, picking a theme for his 2022 talk wasn’t a challenge. “What is the word you need that everyone will remember and agree to about a particular year? This was easy. It's exaflops. I mean real exaflops, you know, the kind you can get your teeth into exaflops, not words like exascale or low-precision exaflops, or 'we know what an exaflops is, right... Read more…

End-to-End Support Toward Accelerating Discovery and Innovation with a Converged HPC and AI Supercomputer

A workload-driven system capable of running HPC/AI workloads is more important than ever. Organizations face many challenges when building a system capable of running HPC and AI workloads. There are also many complexities in system design and integration. Building a workload driven solution requires expertise and domain knowledge that organizational staff may not possess.

This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a long-time Intel® partner, developed the Taiwania 2 and Taiwania 3 supercomputers to meet the research needs of the Taiwan’s academic, industrial, and enterprise users. The Taiwan National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) selected QCT for their expertise in building HPC/AI supercomputers and providing worldwide end-to-end support for solutions from system design, through integration, benchmarking and installation for end users and system integrators to ensure customer success.
