Although serious scientists believe we’re past the point of debating the validity of climate change, the computer models that support this research are not perfect. Fortunately, the latest improvements to high-resolution climate simulations are not only improving the fidelity of the models, but are also deepening our understanding of climate dynamics, both qualitatively and quantitatively.

Edward Seidel, the former director of the NSF's Office of Cyberinfrastructure, told attendees at TeraGrid ’11 that after more than four centuries of science being conducted at a painstakingly slow pace, today’s communications technologies and scientific advances are forcing a dramatic change -- and acceleration -- in all areas of science. At the heart of this change will be software. Read more…

Last year Cornell University and Purdue University received funding from the National Science Foundation to undertake their MATLAB on the TeraGrid project. Since its inception a number of researchers have been making use of the resource and Cornell's Center for Advanced Computing is demonstrating that the resource might have a permanent place in the TeraGrid resource provider collection in the future.

Fifty-one Campus Champions attended TeraGrid's fifth annual conference in Pittsburgh, Pa., recently. Accounting for about 15 percent of attendees, the champions bring a wealth of experience to the program, including knowledge of TeraGrid systems and services, their local campus resources, and other cyberinfrastructures such as the Open Science Grid. This is our fifth and final in a series covering the TeraGrid conference. 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.
From scale-out clusters on commodity hardware, to flash-based storage with data temperature tiering, cloud-based object storage, and even tape, there are a myriad of considerations when architecting the right enterprise storage solution. In this round-table webinar, we examine case studies covering a variety of storage requirements available today. We’ll discuss when and where to use various storage media in accordance with use cases, and we’ll look at security challenges and emerging storage technology coming online.
