AWS Takes the Short and Long View of Quantum Computing

It is perhaps not surprising that the big cloud providers – a poor term really – have jumped into quantum computing. Amazon, Microsoft Azure, Google, and their like have steadily transformed

Sniff Test: Supercomputer Research Investigates Odor Neutralizers

August 4, 2022

Factories, farms and landfills are functionally essential to our daily lives, but the less-than-desirable smells they often produce may be somewhat less necessary. Researchers from the University of New Orleans, the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, and the Jefferson Parish Department of Environmental Affairs in Jefferson, Louisiana... Read more…

Argonne Simulations Target Supersonic Turbulence

August 3, 2022

When an aircraft goes supersonic, the boundary layer of the “separation bubble” along the aircraft’s surface can be disrupted by the impact of the resulting sonic boom — and if that happens, there are significant performance losses. At Argonne National Laboratory, researchers are using supercomputing to study this shock/boundary-layer... Read more…

ORNL’s Supercomputer-Powered TRITON Tool Models Flooding

August 3, 2022

Rare, severe flooding struck both Kentucky and Missouri in the last week alone — and with climate change accelerating, such events are likely to continue. However, flood modeling remains computationally expensive. Now, researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Tennessee Technological University have created the TRITON toolkit, which leverages... Read more…

Zapata’s Orquestra Targets the Hybrid Quantum-Classical Challenge

July 28, 2022

As it’s become clearer that hybrid quantum-classical computing solutions will likely be necessary to achieve practical quantum computing, there’s been an in Read more…

SDSC’s Expanse System Models West Coast Fish Communities

July 28, 2022

Tracking wildlife is much different — and harder — in water. Beyond the difficulties with visibility, fish are also buffeted by currents in a way that terre Read more…

The Race to Ensure Post Quantum Data Security

July 21, 2022

Fault-tolerant quantum computers won’t exist for years – a decade is the most common estimate. When they do arrive, thanks to Shor’s now-famous algorithm, they will be able to crack the most widely-used encryption methods, which are based on factoring. Earlier this month, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) settled on four... Read more…

Quantinuum Debuts 20-Qubit H1-1 System; JPMorgan Chase Showcases its Strength

June 14, 2022

Quantinuum today announced a significant upgrade to its ion trap quantum computer, H1-1, which now has 20 qubits – up from 12 qubits – and features all-to-a Read more…

Start-up Agnostiq Tackles HPC-Quantum Workflow Development

June 9, 2022

Imagine some years hence the HPC landscape, already confusing in its heterogeneity, also includes quantum computing resources. How does a user choose from among Read more…

Whitepaper

2021 Storage Technology Series

Data growth is relentless and inevitable, as data has come to define many aspects of research computing. Simulation data, ever more sophisticated sensor data, and now the rise of machine learning all contribute to the accelerating pace of data growth.

Learn how archive is different than backup, how much data should be archived, and how to architect a comprehensive HSM solution using new data management technologies that can handle this accelerating growth today and well into the future.

End-to-End Support Toward Accelerating Discovery and Innovation with a Converged HPC and AI Supercomputer

A workload-driven system capable of running HPC/AI workloads is more important than ever. Organizations face many challenges when building a system capable of running HPC and AI workloads. There are also many complexities in system design and integration. Building a workload driven solution requires expertise and domain knowledge that organizational staff may not possess.

This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a long-time Intel® partner, developed the Taiwania 2 and Taiwania 3 supercomputers to meet the research needs of the Taiwan’s academic, industrial, and enterprise users. The Taiwan National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) selected QCT for their expertise in building HPC/AI supercomputers and providing worldwide end-to-end support for solutions from system design, through integration, benchmarking and installation for end users and system integrators to ensure customer success.
