We interviewed Melanie Riedener of Hewlett Pakard (Switzerland) when she was visiting our hpc-ch booth at ISC11 in Hamburg. We asked her to tell us what she is doing at HP and about the relevance of HPC in Switzerland. Have a look!
Whether data is processed or deleted in computers, both consume energy. The energy is released as heat. A study has now shown that the heat forming can be avoided, and, in an extreme case, cold can be created – a glimmer of hope for supercomputer centres. The deletion of data, under certain conditions, can create […]
CSCS announced beginning of April the successful deployment of the SLURM Resource Manager on Rosa (Cray XT5). Slurm was developed by Lawrence Livermore and has been ported to the Cray architecture by the National Supercomputing Services (NSS) team NSS at CSCS. Slurm has been customized with the in-house scheduling algorithm of CSCS. The 1840 node […]
ETH Life is reporting today on the Workshop on Large-Scale Data Analysis organized by CSCS. More than 50 representatives from Swiss Universities attained the workshop where Shoaib Mufti (Cray) presented the Cray XMT2 Architecture and Ruediger Wolff (SGI) introduced to the Altix UV for data-intensive applications architecture. «Viele Wissenschaftler nutzen Supercomputer zur Simulation und Darstellung […]
Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. today announced that the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in Manno, Switzerland has awarded a contract to Cray to acquire a next-generation Cray XMT supercomputer. The announcement, which is being made in conjunction with a CSCS-hosted workshop focused on large-scale data analysis, marks Cray’s first order for the Company’s next-generation […]
