European oil and gas giant, Total, has looked to SGI again to supply a super that meets their modeling and simulation needs--but that is focused on power and cooling. The result, based on the SGI ICE X, should pull a top ten ranking on this year's Top 500 list--the most powerful commercial.... Read more…

Over the next ten years of HPC history, the mainstream teraflop systems of today will evolve into the petaflop systems of tomorrow, while the leading-edge petaflop supercomputers will be replaced by exaflop machines. As the most diverse player in the HPC server business, IBM has some unique advantages as it charts a path toward the exascale milestone. Read more…

As more computational muscle is incorporated into blade servers, clusters and supercomputers, the resulting increases in power and heat have become a significant challenge for the data center. Power-hungry blade servers, in particular, have become a major source of thermal pollution. The IT manager is left trying to reconcile the increases in computational demand with the ability of the data center to accommodate it. Read more…
Did you miss out on Supercomputing 2017? Did you attend, but were stuck in meetings the whole time without an opportunity to walk the show floor and see what new announcements were being made? HPCwire's got you covered, we visited some of the hottest booths in the exhibit hall and spoke with their top executives to get the scoop on the latest solutions, partnerships, and product announcements.
From mismatches between compute and storage capabilities to colossal data volumes, data storage presents a number of challenges for scientific research. And as silos pop up and challenges expand, the pace of research often suffers.
As genomic data becomes ubiquitous, infrastructure bottlenecks for life sciences organizations are narrowing. But speedy analysis and real-time decision making don't have to remain out of reach: modern end-to-end systems are emerging as flexible solutions for a competitive edge.
