Intel To Challenge AMD With 48 Core “Cascade Lake” Xeon AP

AMD is hosting its “Next Horizon” datacenter event in San Francisco this week, and archrival Intel, which is losing some market share to AMD but not feeling the pain on its books yet thanks to a massive buildout in server infrastructure at hyperscalers, cloud builders, and smaller service providers like telcos, is hitting back by divulging some of its plans for next year’s “Cascade Lake” Xeon lineup.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Picks CPUs, GPUs, and Liquid Cooling For Pitzer Cluster

The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s mission to supply supercomputing capabilities to educational institutions and companies throughout the state is about to get a significant boost in the form of a powerful and highly-efficient cluster based on Dell EMC servers and leveraging liquid-cooling technology from CoolIT.

Broadening The Appeal Of Distributed NVM-Express Storage

NVM-Express has been creating a quiet revolution in servers for several years now, providing a way for flash storage to bypass the traditional storage stack and the limitations of interfaces such as SATA and SAS, and instead pipe data directly into and out of the CPU through the high-speed PCI Express bus.

Cray Slingshots Back Into HPC Interconnects With Shasta Systems

While processors and now GPUs tend to get all of the glory when it comes to high performance computing, for the past three decades as distributed computing architectures became the norm in supercomputing, it has been the interconnects that made all the difference in how well – or poorly – these systems perform.

Berkeley Lab First In Line for Cray “Shasta” Supercomputers

For the past five years, supercomputer maker Cray has been diligently at work not only creating a new system architecture that allows for a mix of different interconnects and compute for its future “Shasta” systems, but has also brought long-time Cray chief technology officer, Steve Scott, back into the company after two stints spent at Nvidia and Google to create a new interconnect, called “Slingshot,” that is the beating heart of the Shasta system and that signals a return of the Cray that we know and love.
