Big Data, High Performance Computing (HPC), , ,

We are excited to share today’s announcement by the OPENPower
Foundation to enable the STFC Hartree Center. I wrote a short blog about the announcement, excerpted here:


In the latest announcement,  the STFC Hartree Center  is setting out to enable the latest in world-class, state-of-the-art technologies for the development of advanced software solutions to solve real-world challenges in academe, industry and Government and tackle the ever growing issues of big data. The architecture will include POWER CPUs from IBM, the latest in flash-memory storage, GPU’s from Nvidia and, of course, the most advanced networking technology from Mellanox.  Enhanced with native support for CAPI technology, and network-offload acceleration capabilities, the Mellanox interconnect will rapidly shuttle data around the system in the most effective and efficient manner to keep the cores focused on crunching the data; not on processing network communications.
