Pratt & Whitney Launches HPC to The Cloud To Push Jet Engine Design

HPC and the cloud have an uneasy, lukewarm relationship. Some corporations running HPC environments take the view that they have the infrastructure and software capabilities they need to run their own often massive workloads and taking on the networking costs, security concerns and management hassles of running applications and keep data in the cloud doesn’t make sense to them.

China Navigating The Homegrown Waters For Exascale

A major part of China’s several initiatives to build an exascale-class supercomputers has been the country’s determination to rely mostly on homegrown technologies – from processors and accelerators to interconnects and software – rather than turn to vendors outside of its borders, particularly those from the United States.

Trading Off Security And Performance Thanks To Spectre And Meltdown

The revelations by Google’s Project Zero team earlier this year of the Spectre and Meltdown speculative execution vulnerabilities in most of processors that have powered servers and PCs for the past couple of decades shook the industry as Intel and other chip makers scrambled to mitigate the risk of the threats in the short term and then implement plans to incorporate the mitigation techniques into future versions of the silicon.

Getting To The Root Of Security With Trusted Silicon

The increasingly distributed nature of computing and the rapid growth in the number of the small connected devices that make up the Internet of Things (IoT) are combining with trends like the rise of silicon-level vulnerabilities highlighted by Spectre, Meltdown, and more recent variants to create an expanding and fluid security landscape that’s difficult for enterprises to navigate.
