Top Six Predictions for HPC in 2015 — February 2015

Addison Snell, Laura Segervall, Michael Feldman, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D.,

The drive toward exascale computing, a renewed emphasis on data-centric processing, energy efficiency concerns, and the limitations of memory and I/O performance are all working to reshape High Performance Computing platforms. Many-core accelerators, flash storage, 3D memory, integrated networking, and optical interconnects are just some of the technologies propelling these future architectures. In concert with those developments, the HPC vendor landscape has been churning in response to broader market forces, and these events are going to drive some interesting changes in the coming year. Here are a few predictions on what we should expect to see in 2015 Executive Summary Apply for Academic Citation...

HPC User Site Census: Applications — September 2014

Addison Snell, Laura Segervall, Michael Feldman, Christopher G. Willard Ph.D.,

This report is part of our HPC User Site Census series and provides an examination of the primary application software found at a sample of HPC user sites. We surveyed a broad range of users about their current computer system installations, storage systems, networks, middleware, and applications software supporting these computer installations. Our goal in this analysis of applications is to examine the suppliers, products, and primary usage of the application software packages in use at all HPC sites. Using our primary usage categories, we have created two super segments: High Performance Technical Computing (HPTC) applications and High Performance Business Computing (HPBC) applications. We...
