IBM Unveils Expanded Quantum Roadmap; Talks Up ‘Quantum-Centric Supercomputer’

May 10, 2022

IBM today issued an extensive and detailed expansion of its Quantum Roadmap that calls for developing a new 1386-qubit processor – Kookaburra – built from modularly scaled chips, and delivering a 4,158-qubit POC system built using three connected Kookaburra processors by 2025. Kookaburra (Australian Kingfisher) is a new architecture... Read more…

AI for Science – Early Lessons from NERSC’s Perlmutter Supercomputer

April 28, 2022

Roughly a year ago the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) launched Perlmutter, which was hailed at the time as the “world’s fastest AI supercomputer” by Nvidia whose GPUs provide much of Perlmutter’s power. Since then, NERSC has been aggressively ramping up its mixed AI-HPC workload capability – software, early science apps... Read more…

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.
