The World Cup of Supercomputing PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 07 July 2014 00:00

Another competition is in the books! As GCG's Dan Olds writes at StudentClusterComp.com,

The ISC’14 Student Cluster Competition closed out last week in Leipzig, and damn, what a ride! It was an outstanding competition with story lines straight from Hollywood.

Eleven undergraduate teams from around the world battled to build the fastest, baddest supercomputer. Click on the configuration table below to meet the teams and follow the action.

ASC14 Cluster Configurations Revealed PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 03 June 2014 00:00

One of the major differences between the recently completed Asia Student Supercomputer Challenge and the other major international competitions is the way the students get their clustering gear.

In the ISC and SC competitions, part of the task for students is to find a vendor partner and work with them to put together the best cluster for the event, and then make sure the gear arrives at the competition site. After that, it’s all about getting the cluster together and operating correctly, which can end up being quite an adventure in itself.

It’s a different deal at ASC. Inspur, the China-based multinational server vendor, is the sole hardware supplier for each team. This makes logistics easier for the teams, reduces travel/shipping costs, and also ensures that the equipment will be at the starting gate.

Jam, Eavesdrop, and Target Simultaneously! Software-defined radar and more... PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 03 April 2014 14:00

At GTC 13 last year, the guys from General Electric gave a standing-room-only presentation about how they’re using RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) to drive multi-GPU process performance to new heights. They came back to GTC14 to talk about new and innovative applications of GPU technology they’re cooked up over the past year.

In this session, Dustin Franklin, GE GPU Applications Engineer guru, gives us an update on how it has been proceeding with RDMA and how it allows the electric company to build large scale, multi-node products.

What's really interesting are the types of products that this is now making possible. For example, consider software-defined radar. With a big RF transmitter and enough fast computing power, you have the ability to do a lot of different things.

The same radar dome can be used for MTI (Moving Target Radar), SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar), radar-jamming, and even as a communications channel. Using GPUs to configure the output and interpret the returning waves, GE has found that it’s possible to do all of these functions simultaneously.
