AI for Science – Early Lessons from NERSC’s Perlmutter Supercomputer

April 28, 2022

Roughly a year ago the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) launched Perlmutter, which was hailed at the time as the “world’s fastest AI supercomputer” by Nvidia whose GPUs provide much of Perlmutter’s power. Since then, NERSC has been aggressively ramping up its mixed AI-HPC workload capability – software, early science apps... Read more…

Argonne Talks AI Accelerators for Covid Research

April 28, 2022

As the pandemic swept across the world, virtually every research supercomputer lit up to support Covid-19 investigations. But even as the world transformed, the Read more…

PsiQuantum’s Path to 1 Million Qubits

April 21, 2022

PsiQuantum, founded in 2016 by four researchers with roots at Bristol University, Stanford University, and York University, is one of a few quantum computing startups that’s kept a moderately low PR profile. (That’s if you disregard the roughly $700 million in funding it has attracted.) The main reason is PsiQuantum has eschewed the clamorous public chase for... Read more…

Top US Supercomputer Supports Mental Health Research

April 16, 2022

Over the course of the pandemic, the crucial role of high-performance computing and artificial intelligence in treating disease has become abundantly clear. Even as viral disease sits squarely in supercomputing’s crosshairs, however, mental illness has remained relatively foreign to the computational medicine world. Now, a collaboration between Oak Ridge National... Read more…

Today is World Quantum Day – What’s That?

April 14, 2022

Thanks to Planck’s constant — 4.14 x 10-15 eV seconds, rounded up (or 6.63 x 10-34 Joule seconds, if you prefer) — April 14 has been designated World Quantum Day by a loosely affiliated group of scientists and organizations around the world, including the U.S. (see website). The broad idea is to spotlight quantum information science’s rapid growth and, in particular... Read more…

Supercomputing, Paper Cutting Underpin Stretchable Electronics Research

April 11, 2022

Some wearable electronics—like sensors sewn into fabrics, or applicable “skins”—rely on the development of new, durable, stretchable electronic material Read more…

Summit Tackles Damaging Gas Turbine Oscillations

April 11, 2022

Natural gas-fired power plants were the largest source of electricity generation in the United States in 2020, constituting about 40 percent of the country’s power supply – and beyond electricity, gas-fired turbines power hospitals, factories and more. Unfortunately, difficult-to-predict oscillations can damage turbines over time. Now, supercomputer-powered... Read more…

Supercomputers Delve Into Underwater Mystery

April 8, 2022

The inner workings of the Earth shape the continents and islands we know on the surface — but many of the inner workings of the planet remain a mystery to eve Read more…

5 HPC Optimization Techniques

For many organizations, decisions about whether to run HPC workloads in the cloud or in on-premises datacenters are less all-encompassing and more about leveraging both infrastructures strategically to optimize HPC workloads across hybrid environments. From multi-clouds to on-premises, dark, edge, and point of presence (PoP) datacenters, data comes from all directions and in all forms while HPC workloads run in every dimension of modern datacenter schemes. HPC has become multi-dimensional and must be managed as such.

This white paper explores several of these new strategies and tools for optimizing HPC workloads across all dimensions to achieve breakthrough results in Microsoft Azure.
