Certificates for the top ranking systems in the TOP500 list, Green500 list, HPCG and HPL-AI benchmarks.
Data centers host many users and applications and have become the competitive advantage for research organization and manufacturing companies. Keeping the data center intact and healthy is critical, as operational costs of supercomputers continue to rise, driven by growing scientific computing demands and new security threats. Moreover, malicious users may exploit data center access to misuse compute resources by running prohibited applications, such as crypto currency mining, resulting in unexpected downtimes and higher operating costs. This week, NVIDIA unveiled the Unified Fabric Manager (UFM) Cyber-AI platform, which minimizes downtime and saves OPEX in InfiniBand data centers by harnessing AI-powered analytics …
The TOP500 authors encourage the HPC community to submit entries for the 55th TOP500 and Green500 lists. The June 2020 TOP500 list is released during the ISC High Performance conference, which will be held in digital form from June 22-24 due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year. The submission and publication schedule of the June list is NOT affected by this change.
On Nov. 20th, Beijing time (Nov. 19th Local Time)SC19 (The Supercomputing Conference 2019) was held in Denver, Colorado, USA. The theme of the conference is “HPC is now”. During the conference, well-recognized Hyperion Research issued Sugon the Innovation Excellence Award, due to its impressive innovations on “Silicon Cube” series computer. As reported, this is the first time that a Chinese local IT enterprise successfully gains the honor.
BERKELEY, Calif.; FRANKFURT, Germany; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— The 54th edition of the TOP500 saw China and the US maintaining their dominance of the list, albeit in different categories. Meanwhile, the aggregate performance of the 500 systems, based on the High Performance Linpack (HPL) benchmark, continues to rise and now sits at 1.65 exaflops. The entry level to the list has risen to 1.14 petaflops, up from 1.02 petaflops in the previous list in June 2019.
As of the most important international conferences in the field of high performance computing (HPC), The ISC High Performance conference (ISC 2019) kicked off at the Frankfurt Convention and Exhibition Center in Germany on June 16. Themed- Fueling Innovation - this conference highlighted the latest technologies and their applications in the fields of science and business. The conference attracted over 3500 engineers, IT experts, system developers, scientists from around the world.
BERKELEY, Calif.; FRANKFURT, Germany; and KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— The 53rd edition of the TOP500 marks a milestone in the 26-year history of the list. For the first time, all 500 systems deliver a petaflop or more on the High Performance Linpack (HPL) benchmark, with the entry level to the list now at 1.022 petaflops.
