ISC 2021’s Student Cluster Competition Winners Announced

July 2, 2021

Last year, there was an enormous upheaval: the Student Cluster Competition, which involves teams of students building computer clusters on the show floors of ISC and SC conferences, had to scramble to figure out a way to go virtual for ISC 2020. This year, at ISC 2021, it seemed almost second nature, with the conference even managing to pull a second remote supercomputer on which the virtual student teams could compete. Now, the conference... Read more…

ISC 2021 Keynote: Thomas Sterling on Urgent Computing, Big Machines, China Speculation

July 1, 2021

In a somewhat shortened version of his annual ISC keynote surveying the HPC landscape Thomas Sterling, lauded the community’s effort in bringing HPC to bear in the fight against the pandemic, welcomed the start of the exascale – if not yet exaflops – era with quick tour of some big machines, speculated a little on what China may be planning, and paid tribute to new and ongoing efforts to bring fresh talent into HPC. Sterling is a longtime HPC leader... Read more…

Direct Liquid Cooling: CAPEX and OPEX, the Complete ROI Story

Health data capture, precise data analysis and machine assisted diagnosis are a big focus of the precision medical field. It is critical that medical organizations and researchers have a method for efficiency, simplification, and scalability to run precision medicine workloads. An optimized infrastructure is required to meet the needs of GPU systems capable of running precision medicine applications and workloads. Read this paper now to learn the benefits for:

This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) developed the QCT POD for Medical (QPM) platform specifically designed to meet the needs for life science customers. QCT provides an on-premises rack-level system for the healthcare industry. To reach greater flexibility and scaling, QPM offers common building blocks to meet different medical demands, like Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), Molecular Dynamics (MD), and Image Recognition. In addition, QCT optimized the QPM solution to automate launching the NVIDIA Clara application framework for AI-powered imaging and genomics.

Why Storage Infrastructure Choices Matter for Data-Intensive Organizations

Oracle’s next generation HPC architecture with Intel compute instance based on 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, code named "Ice Lake", changes the game for HPC in the Cloud. The new HPC Bare Metal instance delivers performance gains of up to 42% compared to the previous generation HPC instance. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with Intel’s 3rd generation processors also offers the flexibility to choose the right combination of cores and memory to suit workloads. The price per core-hour stays the same as the previous HPC instance, across all Oracle Cloud regions. This combination of improved performance and flat pricing translates to faster simulations and big cost savings.

Join Oracle and Intel and learn how customers are increasing performance for HPC workloads across batch processing, video encoding, electronic design automation (EDA), distributed analytics, data science, AI, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
