The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre CSCS in Lugano, Switzerland, organized on December 10-12, 2012 the course “Getting the best out of multi-core”. Modern multi-core x86 processors have 100 times more peak performance than similar single-core processors from ten years ago, but most applications haven’t been able to leverage this power to their advantage. The three-day [...]

In May 2012 CSCS organized a course about “Using the next-generation Cray XMT (uRiKA) for Large Scale Data Analytics”. The next-generation Cray XMT (uRiKA) is a massively multithreaded, high performance computer system built for data analytics. The system supports a semantic database capable of processing SPARQL queries against a RDF triple store. The system can [...]
