Nov. 26 -- Facilities dedicated to high-performance computing, networking, and data storage present unique challenges. How will these facilities evolve to meet the need for greater capacity while mitigating environmental impact? What innovative solutions will ensure that these environments are fault-tolerant, energy-efficient, flexible, scalable, maintainable, and cost-effective? What strategies will maximize productivity and minimize downtime? What are some of the best practices for developing a realistic facility program, budget, schedule and migration plan?
The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will tackle these challenges as part of the Blue Waters project, which will build and deploy the first sustained-petascale supercomputer for open scientific research.
On Feb. 12-13, 2008, NCSA will host a free workshop on "Building the Data Center of the Future: Effective Energy-Efficient Design." The workshop will bring together experts from research centers, the IT industry, and engineering, consulting, and architecture firms to explore the challenges involved in planning, designing, engineering, constructing, monitoring, and maintaining the datacenter of the future.
Sponsors for the workshop include NCSA, EYP Mission Critical Facilities and IBM.

10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
