It may not be possible to prevent devastating space-weather events like solar storms from reaching the earth's surface, but with enough warning, we can prepare for them. Scientists believe that mapping the earth's magnetosphere – the magnetic shield that stops most but not all of these storms – is the first step. Read more…

A diminutive marine crustacean called the Gribble landed on the biofuel industry's radar for its unique ability to digest wood in salty conditions. Now, researchers in the US and the UK are putting the University of Tennessee's Kraken supercomputer to work modeling an enzyme in the Gribble's gut, which could unlock the key to developing better industrial enzymes in the future.

The large-scale classical physics problems that remain unsolved must for the most part be run in parallel by high-performance machines like the Kraken supercomputer. Literally millions of variables culled from billions of particles combine to make this type of research unreasonable for ordinary computational physics. Read more…
Whether an organization chooses a cloud for general business needs or a highly tailored workload, the spectrum of offerings and configurations can be overwhelming. To help you navigate the various cloud options available today, we're breaking down your options, exploring pros and cons, and sharing ways to keep your options open and your business agile as you execute your cloud strategy.
Researchers in academic labs and commercial R&D groups continue to need more compute capacity, which means leveraging the latest innovations in HPC technologies as well as an assortment of resources to meet the unique needs of different workloads. Increasingly, systems based on Arm processors are stepping into that role, offering low power consumption and strategic advantages for HPC workloads.
Whether it's for fraud detection, personalized medicine, manufacturing, smart cities, autonomous vehicles and many other areas, advanced-scale computing has exploded beyond the realm of academia and government and into the private sector. And with data-intensive workloads on the rise, commercial users are turning to HPC-based infrastructure to run the AI, ML and cognitive computing applications that their organizations depend on.
