HPC Programming in the Age of Multicore: One Man’s View

January 14, 2013

At this June's International Supercomputing Conference (ISC'13) in Leipzig, Germany, Gerhard Wellein will be delivering a keynote entitled, Fooling the Masses with Performance Results: Old Classics & Some New Ideas. HPCwire caught up with Wellein and asked him to preview some of the themes of his upcoming talk and expound on his philosophy of programming for performance in the multicore era. Read more…

Novel Chip Technology to Power GRAPE-8 Supercomputer

May 10, 2012

With the fastest supercomputers on the planet sporting multi-megawatt appetites, green HPC has become all the rage. The IBM Blue Gene/Q machine is currently number one in energy-efficient flops, but a new FPGA-like technology brought to market by semiconductor startup eASIC is providing an even greener computing solution. And one HPC project in Japan, known as GRAPE, is using the chips to power its newest supercomputer. Read more…

Powering Up Automotive Simulation: Why Migrating to the Cloud is a Game Changer

The increasing complexity of electric vehicles result in large and complex computational models for simulations that demand enormous compute resources. On-premises high-performance computing (HPC) clusters and computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools are commonly used but some limitations occur when the models are too big or when multiple iterations need to be done in a very short term, leading to a lack of available compute resources. In this hybrid approach, cloud computing offers a flexible and cost-effective alternative, allowing engineers to utilize the latest hardware and software on-demand. Ansys Gateway powered by AWS, a cloud-based simulation software platform, drives efficiencies in automotive engineering simulations. Complete Ansys simulation and CAE/CAD developments can be managed in the cloud with access to AWS’s latest hardware instances, providing significant runtime acceleration.

Two recent studies show how Ansys Gateway powered by AWS can balance run times and costs, making it a compelling solution for automotive development.

Five Recommendations to Optimize Data Pipelines

When building AI systems at scale, managing the flow of data can make or break a business. The various stages of the AI data pipeline pose unique challenges that can disrupt or misdirect the flow of data, ultimately impacting the effectiveness of AI storage and systems.

With so many applications and diverse requirements for data types, management systems, workloads, and compliance regulations, these challenges are only amplified. Without a clear, continuous flow of data throughout the AI data lifecycle, AI models can perform poorly or even dangerously.

To ensure your AI systems are optimized, follow these five essential steps to eliminate bottlenecks and maximize efficiency.
