Hurricane Force Supercomputing: Petascale Simulations of Sandy

November 14, 2013

The devastation incurred by the landfall of Hurricane Sandy on the northeast coast of the United States just over one year ago exemplifies the need for further advances in accuracy and reliability in numerical weather prediction. High resolution numerical weather simulations carried out on hundreds of thousands of processors on the largest supercomputers, Blue Waters in this case, are providing these very insights.

NASA Builds Supercomputing Lab for Earth Scientists

July 25, 2012

<a href="http://www.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/2012-07-25/nasa_builds_supercomputing_lab_for_earth_scientists.html" target="_blank">This week, NASA announced it would soon be launching a new HPC and data facility that will give Earth scientists access to four decades of satellite imagery and other datasets. Known as the NASA Earth Exchange (NEX), the facility is being promoted as a "virtual laboratory" for researchers interested in applying supercomputing resources to studying areas like climate change, soil and vegetation patterns, and other environmental topics.

Climate Modelers Have Insatiable Appetite for HPC

March 14, 2011

Since the dawn of high performance computing, climate modeling has been one of its most demanding domains. The hunger for computational capability is unending, as researchers work to incorporate more of nature's complexity into their models at higher resolutions. HPCwire talked with NOAA/GFDL Deputy Director Brian Gross and Venkatramani Balaji, head of the lab's Modeling Systems Group. Read more…

Whitepaper

5 HPC Optimization Techniques

For many organizations, decisions about whether to run HPC workloads in the cloud or in on-premises datacenters are less all-encompassing and more about leveraging both infrastructures strategically to optimize HPC workloads across hybrid environments. From multi-clouds to on-premises, dark, edge, and point of presence (PoP) datacenters, data comes from all directions and in all forms while HPC workloads run in every dimension of modern datacenter schemes. HPC has become multi-dimensional and must be managed as such.

This white paper explores several of these new strategies and tools for optimizing HPC workloads across all dimensions to achieve breakthrough results in Microsoft Azure.
