HPC4Mfg shows why supercomputing matters to industry and consumers

Back in February, the US Department of Energy’s High Performance Computing for Manufacturing program (HPC4Mfg) announced its first awards for advancing industry manufacturing projects using national lab supercomputing resources and expertise.

Translating HPC speak

By Andrew Jones; High Performance Computing (HPC) is a vocal sport. We are always lobbying for something. Or giving talks at conferences. Or writing blogs. But sometimes we need a bit of help to translate what HPC people say into what they really mean …

Simulating stars with less computing power

For the first time, a research team has harnessed the JUQUEEN supercomputer to find a way to simulate the fusion of heavier elements within stars.

Intel® Omni Path Architecture Makes Serious Headway

At ISC14, over 18 months ago, Intel began talking about their next-generation fabric technology, Intel® Omni-Path Architecture. Their new fabric for High Performance Computing and low-latency scale-out systems is part of the Intel® Scalable Systems Framework, a new design approach for scalable, flexible HPC systems.
