High performance computing (HPC) system will speed research to advance energy resource management, accelerate materials development, ensure the sustainability of food supplies, and improve animal health COLLEGE STATION, Texas and ARMONK, N.Y., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas A&M University System and IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced an agreement that is the beginning of a broad research collaboration supported by one of the largest computational sciences infrastructure dedicated to...

Scientists Announce The Successful Installation Of First Blue Gene Active Storage System Worldwide
2013-11-18 13:42:39

Forschungszentrum Jülich The ever growing complexity of various simulation tasks not only require a continuous increase of computing power but also the capability of managing large amounts of data. Realization of an active storage architecture and integration of non-volatile memory into Blue Gene/Q enables data intensive applications to exploit the performance of this highly scalable high-performance computing system by IBM. The BGAS system is the result of a close collaboration between...

IBM Program Language For Brain Computer

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Though modern computers are able to churn through piles of data and power much of our world, they're nowhere near as powerful as the human brain. But for over five years IBM has been hard at work trying to create a computer chip that thinks like a brain in partnership with US defense agency DARPA and others. Now they say they've moved one step forward in their aim to develop brain-like computers by creating a computer programming...

Record Simulations Performed On Lawrence Livermore Supercomputer
2013-03-20 08:30:42

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have performed record simulations using all 1,572,864 cores of Sequoia, the largest supercomputer in the world. Sequoia, based on IBM BlueGene/Q architecture, is the first machine to exceed one million computational cores. It also is No. 2 on the list of the world's fastest supercomputers, operating at 16.3 petaflops (16.3 quadrillion floating point operations per second). The simulations are...

Sequoia Passes One Million Cores
2013-01-28 19:36:35

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The most advanced gaming PCs rely on quad-core processors, but that pales to what researchers at Stanford's Engineering Center for Turbulence Research (CTR) have created with a new record in computational science. The Stanford researchers successfully used a supercomputer with more than one million computing cores to solve a complex fluid dynamics problem; that being the prediction of noise generated by a supersonic jet engine....

Bug Repellant For Supercomputers
2012-11-15 21:57:52

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online For many computer users, finding a bug or an error in their system can be more than difficult, it can be a chore with no clear beginning or ending. Personal computers of all types and platforms have become increasingly sophisticated in even the last 5 years, yet they cannot perform nearly as well as today´s supercomputers. These shelves and racks of processors and other components run so many calculations, they have to be...

Titan Computer Is Fastest
2012-11-12 19:21:07

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has completed some upgrades to their existing super computer, and they´ve become awfully proud of it. This new supercomputer combines the power of CPUs and GPUs, improving the power of the previous Jaguar supercomputer ten fold. The result: The Titan supercomputer takes up the same footprint of about 200 refrigerators and is said to be capable of calculating 20 petaflops without...
