France’s CEA and Japan’s RIKEN to Partner on ARM and Exascale

France’s CEA and Japan’s RIKEN institute announced a multi-faceted five-year collaboration to advance HPC generally and prepare for exascale computing. Among the particulars are efforts to: build out the ARM ecosystem; work on code development and code sharing on the existing and future platforms; share expertise in specific application areas (material and seismic sciences for example); improve techniques for using numerical simulation with big data; and expand HPC workforce training. It seems to be a very full agenda.

Enabling Open Source High Performance Workloads with Red Hat

High performance workloads, big data, and analytics are increasingly important in finding real value in today's applications and data. Before we deploy applications and mine data for mission and business insights, we need a high-performance, rapidly scalable, resilient infrastructure foundation that can accurately, securely, and quickly access data from all relevant sources. Red Hat has technology that allows high performance workloads with a scale-out foundation that integrates multiple data sources and can transition workloads across on-premise and cloud boundaries.
