Vincent Keller and Ralf Gruber from EPF Lausanne just published a book Titled “HPC@Green IT – Green High Performance Computing Methods” (Springer). An interview with the two authors has already been published by hpcwire. hpc-ch additionally interviewed Vincent and Ralf about the “Swiss” aspects of their book.
Some weeks ago SWITCH joined the hpc-ch community as a guest. SWITCH is a foundation created by the Swiss University cantons and the Federal Government with the mission to provide innovative, unique internet services for the Swiss universities. SWITCH is also the major Swiss contributor to the EGI-InSPIRE project (grid computing). SWITCH will be represented […]
Have a look to the assembling of the data center roof for the new Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in Lugano. In the movie (see here below) you can see the positioning of the roof beams for the new machine room. Each roof beam is 35 meters long and weights 50 tons.The machine room will […]
EPFL is dedicating this year’s last issue of its inhouse Flash Informatique to High Performance Computing. In this special issue we will get a deep insight into some of the research using and contributing to HPC going on at EPFL. In particular, several labs are working on energy efficiency of HPC hardware and infrastructure. An […]
The research group led by Viola Vogel, Professor of Biologically Oriented Materials at ETH Zurich, has studied with the help of supercomputers the mechanisms behind the infections of wounds. If connective tissue fibres are under tension, bacteria do not bind to them so well. However, if the fibres are severed and slackened by a cut, […]
