It’s not yet clear if staff cuts announced yesterday at Oak Ridge National Laboratory are just the first of others at other national labs as the Department of Energy feels pressure from President Trump to cut costs. Read more…

The DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has just completed construction on a state-of-the-art datacenter in preparation for a brand new supercomputer. The high-efficiency 1-petaflops system features the latest servers from HP, including a proprietary direct-to-chip cooling system. NREL has already taken delivery of an initial 200-teraflops machine, and expects the system to reach full capacity this summer. Read more…
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.
