A new HPC system from DownUnder GeoSolutions will immerse 40,000 servers in liquid coolant at Skybox Datacenters in Houston. The massive system is expected to deliver 250 petaflops of computing power.
The new Frontera supercomputer at the University of Texas combines several approaches to liquid cooling, including GPUs immersed in dielectric liquid coolant fluid, and x86 servers using direct water cooling to the processor.
NVIDIA today introduced beefier new GPUs, along with a new interconnect fabric to accelerate workloads, and an initiative to extend machine learning capabilities to smartphones and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
LiquidCool Solutions immerses server components inside a sealed chassis filled with dielectric fluid. The company is targeting the market for high-density cooling, where the growth of AI and HPC is boosting interest in liquid-cooled solutions.
In his SC17 presentation, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang said the company’s Volta architecture for GPUs is now available on every major cloud service to deliver AI and HPC.
Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory have combined 750 Raspberry Pi systems to create a low-budget system to test HPC software.
Cray Inc. has teamed with data center operator Markley Group to introduce “supercomputing as a service” for life sciences firms in the Boston area.
As enterprise adoption has increased, the hybrid cloud solution has evolved to meet today’s transformational requirements across multiple lines of business. The good news is that the components used to create a well-designed hybrid cloud environment are different now, and better for enabling high performance.
Data center provider ScaleMatrix has opened a startup accelerator on its San Diego campus, which includes co-working space and a genomics laboratory to support life sciences and genomics startups.
