On the agenda: The fundamental principles of quantum computing • Quantum versus. conventional HPC computing • Google, Lockheed Martin, NASA… a few use cases with Internet Giants • Quantum computing in 2025...
A CFD method was developed and applied for the simulation of oil flow in a multiple rotating spur-gear system. This method offers a convenient and efficient way to study different oil filling levels in a gearbox with respect to their influence on oil flow and on the volume fraction of oil on gear flanks.
NVM offers the promise of providing persistent memory close to the CPU that is fast, large and cost-effective. Making the rounds for a long time (since 2008 and counting), this proclamation is adding confusion about the characteristics of the technology. For example, if we consider Resistive RAM (RRAM) [...]
A solar telescope-specific problem is the heat generated by the tightly-focused sunlight. Unlike most ground-based telescopes, used at nighttime to capture a small number of photons from distant astronomical bodies, the DKIST will spend its working life pointed directly at the Sun, absorbing large quantities of focused light and heat energy.
A "Supercomputer of supercomputers"...

With the advent of high speed internet (100 Gbps) - the first transatlantic link of this kind, ANA100, was installed last year and five or six more are expected before the end of 2014 - it just may be [...]

OCCIGEN: +2.1 Pflops in France

CINES (Centre Informatique National de l'Enseignement Supérieur, in Montpellier) will be the location for the new Bull supercomputer which GENCI has just acquired. Poetically named OCCIGEN, it should be deployed in September and put into production at the beginning [...]

CS + CRAY, a new major player in European HPC

CS, a designer and integrator of critical systems for security and defense, space, aeronautics and energy, announced they just signed a partnership agreement with Cray. Both commercially and technologically, this alliance extends Cray's reach into the French market while [...]

CAPS, the end...

After more than twelve highly productive years, the French publisher of one of the two OpenACC compilers on the market - some of you also know them as experts in parallel codes optimization - has thrown in the towel. [...]

Intel unveils Knight's Landing a bit more

Although it can be used independently, that is, in native and non-accelerator mode, Xeon Phi's memory dotation is too small to stand a full 61-core workload. That being said, on the road to exascale, compute power is not the [...]
