SEA Changes: How EuroHPC Is Preparing for Exascale

August 5, 2022

Back in June, the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking – which serves as the EU’s concerted supercomputing play – announced its first exascale system: JUPITER, set to be installed by the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (FZJ) in 2023. But EuroHPC has been preparing for the exascale era for a much longer time: eight months... Read more…

EuroHPC Announces First Exascale Supercomputer and Four Other Systems

June 15, 2022

Just a couple of weeks ago, EuroHPC Executive Director Anders Jensen told HPCwire that there would be big news coming out of the meeting of EuroHPC’s governing board in Kajaani, Finland yesterday. He wasn’t joking: today, the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking announced the first details of its first exascale system and also announced host sites and names for four additional... Read more…

As LUMI Launches, a Look at the State of EuroHPC

June 13, 2022

Today, the LUMI pre-exascale supercomputer was inaugurated in Kajaani, Finland. LUMI—which currently weighs in around 152 Linpack petaflops, but is expected to soon exceed 375—represents the largest success thus far of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, Europe’s concerted supercomputing play. LUMI marks the beginning of the end for the first phase of EuroHPC, but the... Read more…

Porting CUDA Applications to Run on AMD GPUs

Giving developers the ability to write code once and use it on different platforms is important. Organizations are increasingly moving to open source and open standard solutions which can aid in code portability. AMD developed a porting solution that allows developers to port proprietary NVIDIA® CUDA® code to run on AMD graphic processing units (GPUs).

This paper describes the AMD ROCm™ open software platform which provides porting tools to convert NVIDIA CUDA code to AMD native open-source Heterogeneous Computing Interface for Portability (HIP) that can run on AMD Instinct™ accelerator hardware. The AMD solution addresses performance and portability needs of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and high performance computing (HPC) for application developers. Using the AMD ROCm platform, developers can port their GPU applications to run on AMD Instinct accelerators with very minimal changes to be able to run their code in both NVIDIA and AMD environments.

QCT HPC BeeGFS Storage: A Performance Environment for I/O Intensive Workloads

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.
