We continue our short series of reports from the SC11 conference based on the input of our colleague Will Sawyer. This posting is dedicated to advanced topics in heterogeneous programming with OpenCL Trying to find out whether OpenCL is the right horse to bet on, we attended Advanced Topics in Heterogeneous Programming with OpenCL, given […]
We start a short series of reports from the SC11 conference (thanks to Will Sawyer of CSCS for sharing with us his experiences). The first episode is dedicated to an Introduction to OpenCL given by Benedict Gaster (AMD) and Tim Mattson (Intel). General impressions: the architecture and programming model seems cleaner than CUDA, e.g., the […]
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.
We are glad to share with you the results of the Master Thesis (in German) of Christoph Möder entitled «Suggestions for optimizing the server room at the ETH Zurich based on a cost and energy analysis». Providers of HPC services are increasingly faced with questions about energy costs and this study provides a good reference […]
