Australian Government Unveils New Defense, Weather Supercomputers

August 15, 2022

The Australian government has been busy on the supercomputing front. In just the last two weeks, the Australian Department of Defence and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology have both revealed major supercomputing updates. The Department of Defence, for its part, unveiled a new supercomputer: Taingiwilta, named after the word for “powerful” in the language of the... Read more…

Supercomputer Simulations Elucidate Shakes of Explosions, Earthquakes

August 13, 2022

Explosions are the bread and butter of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), one of the labs under the auspices of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). But not all explosions, of course, are nuclear – and now, researchers at LLNL and waveform simulation startup Mondaic have created a new, supercomputer-powered model to model the ground shaking that ensues...

Supercomputer Models Explosives Critical for Nuclear Weapons

August 6, 2022

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is one of the laboratories that operates under the auspices of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), which manages the United States’ stockpile of nuclear weapons. Amid major efforts to modernize that stockpile, LLNL has announced that researchers from its own Energetic Materials Center... 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.
