High Performance Computing (HPC) at DellThanks for visiting our online HPC and technical computing community. We have an active group of contributors from our technical Dell engineers, to our industry leading customers, and worldwide partners.
Next in our series of thought leaders at SC13 offering their opinions about supercomputing over the past 25 years, and where we're heading in the next 25, is Joseph Antony of Australian National University.
You can see a complete wrap up of SC13 here.
Next in our series of thought leaders at SC13 offering their opinions about supercomputing over the past 25 years, and where we're heading in the next 25, is Michael Norman from the University of California, San Diego.
Next in our series of thought leaders at SC13 offering their opinions about supercomputing over the past 25 years, and where we're heading in the next 25, is Paul Calleja from Cambridge University.
As you may know, this year we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Supercomputer Conference Series. We wanted to know what some of the movers and shakers in HPC thought about the past 25 years in supercomputing, and where they think we're heading in the next 25. So during SC13 we asked them! Here's what Brad Dispensa of the University of California, San Francisco has to say.
A recent HPCwire article illustrated Dell's strong track record of supporting research computing. It noted that over the past five years Dell and our partners have worked together to combine integrated server, storage and networking solutions. Specifically designed for hyperscale and research computing environments, the scalable, cost-effective usage models (such as HPC-as-a-Service and HPC in the cloud) simplify collaborative science, improve access to compute capacity and accelerate discovery for the research computing community.
The article also discusses the Active Infrastructure for HPC Life Sciences Dell introduced earlier this year, which reduces implementation timelines while allowing researchers to process up to 37 genomes daily and 259 genomes every week.
Most exciting, the HPCwire piece highlights some of the exciting work our partners are doing, including that of:
In another example of Dell's partnerships in research computing, a second HPCwire story focused on TACC's "Student Cluster Competition" win. Again, congratulations to the team from TACC, we're proud to be your partners.
The tower at the University of Texas lit orange in honer of TACC's win!
Our second panel at SC13 moderated by Rich Brueckner was an intriguing look at the hot topic of virtualization. The distinguished panel of "And You Thought HPC Virtualization was Never Going to Happen?" included:
You can learn more about the panel and see the panel discussion video here.
We are delighted that insideHPC's Rich Brueckner moderated two panel discussions in our booth at SC13 last month.
The first panel was Solving the HPC Data Deluge, a discussion on the important issues around data storage.
We are honored to have had the participation of:

Congratulations to NSF Texas Advanced Computing Center! Their Stampede Comprehensive Petascale Science Environment was chosen as the Editor's Choice by HPCwire at SC13.
Dell is proud to be one of TACC's technology partners.

The students from The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at the University of Texas, won the "Student Cluster Challenge" at SC13 in Denver last week. This is the second consecutive win for a TACC team, after their team also triumphed at SC12 in Salt Lake.
This is also the third consecutive team sponsored by Dell to "bring home the gold." The TACC teams join Team South Africa, which won the Student Cluster Challenge at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in June.
Congratulations to TACC on this impressive performance!
Meet some of the team on this insideHPC video.
Join us Thursday for these excited presentations:
Dell’s booth is 1301. See you there!
