  • High-Performance Computing: a Worthwhile Investment for Enterprise Firms?

    Just a few short months ago, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced its $1.3 billion acquisition of supercomputing leader Cray. The acquisition marked a curious venture for the HPE, who — as the lead supplier in the global high-performance computing market — had traditionally set their ambitions towards more low-key, less expensive HPC solutions, servicing mostly commercial markets. Meanwhile,…

  • Moving HPC to the Cloud? Take our insideHPC Survey

    How big is the move to HPC in the Cloud? A recent report from Hyperion Research indicates that as much as 10 percent of HPC workloads are already in the cloud and that 70 percent of HPC centers are running some jobs in public clouds. Do these reports of increasing HPC Cloud migration match what…

  • Building Diversity and Broader Engagement in the HPC Community

    Increasing diversity and inclusion in HPC is a community-building effort. Representation of both issues and individuals matters – the more people see HPC in a way they can relate to, the more likely they will come to the field. To make this community available to anyone who might want to participate we must continue to…

  • Sixth Annual Workshop on HPC User Support Tools (HUST 19) to Be Held at SC19

    August 6, 2019 — Supercomputing centers exist to drive scientific discovery by supporting researchers in computational science fields. To make users more productive in the complex HPC environment, HPC centers employ user support teams. These teams serve many roles, from setting up accounts, to consulting on math libraries and code optimization, to managing HPC software…

  • The Convergence of HPC and A.I.

    The convergence of HPC & A.I. is a hot topic right now, and for good reasons. In practice, there is a symbiotic relationship between (for example) HPC simulations and machine learning. HPC simulations generate tons of data, and as luck would have it, machine learning requires tons of data to train models. If we turn…
