France’s CEA and Japan’s RIKEN institute announced a multi-faceted five-year collaboration to advance HPC generally and prepare for exascale computing. Among the particulars are efforts to: build out the ARM ecosystem; work on code development and code sharing on the existing and future platforms; share expertise in specific application areas (material and seismic sciences for example); improve techniques for using numerical simulation with big data; and expand HPC workforce training. It seems to be a very full agenda. Read more…

Japanese IT company Fujitsu used the K supercomputer to conduct the world's first simulation of the magnetization-reversal process in a permanent magnet. The research paves the way for superior magnetic materials that do not rely on heavy rare earth elements. Read more…
Did you miss out on Supercomputing 2017? Did you attend, but were stuck in meetings the whole time without an opportunity to walk the show floor and see what new announcements were being made? HPCwire's got you covered, we visited some of the hottest booths in the exhibit hall and spoke with their top executives to get the scoop on the latest solutions, partnerships, and product announcements.
From mismatches between compute and storage capabilities to colossal data volumes, data storage presents a number of challenges for scientific research. And as silos pop up and challenges expand, the pace of research often suffers.
As genomic data becomes ubiquitous, infrastructure bottlenecks for life sciences organizations are narrowing. But speedy analysis and real-time decision making don't have to remain out of reach: modern end-to-end systems are emerging as flexible solutions for a competitive edge.
