Virtual HPC Tour: A peek inside the HLRS Hawk supercomputer

AMD has launched a never-seen-before 360 virtual tour of the flagship supercomputer ‘Hawk’ at the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart, Germany. The recently inaugurated Hawk system is among the fastest supercomputers worldwide and the fastest general-purpose system for scientific and industrial computing in Europe.

The Hawk system consists of 44 racks provided by over 5,600 compute nodes, summing up to over 720,000 compute cores of 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors. It also packed with an Apollo System from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). The supercomputer is designed to advance applications in energy, climate, mobility and health, with a peak performance of approximately 26 petaflops (26 quadrillion floating-point operations per second).


Research focus: ETH Zurich/University of Bologna and pAElla-powered data centres

ETH Zurich in Switzerland is one of the most highly regarded science and technology universities, one known for its cutting-edge research and innovation.

When it come to data centres, the pinnacle of innovation right now centres on how data analytics, sensors and AI can be used to improve power and performance.

Over the last few years, a group of researchers from both ETH Zurich and the University of Bologna has been at the forefront of advanced data centre monitoring research.


Successive cyber attacks shut down European supercomputers working on Covid-19 research

European high-performance supercomputers were subject to a string of related cyber attacks last week that forced academic insitutions to temporarily take systems offline.

A large number of the academic institutions impacted were using their supercomputers to run Covid-19 research workloads.

El Capitan supercomputer will be 10 times as powerful as anything we’ve seen before

The US Department of Energy’s (DoE) upcoming El Capitan supercomputer will be capable of 2 exaflops of computing performance, making it more powerful than the top 200 fastest supercomputers combined.

The record-breaking supercomputer, which is expected to be delivered in early 2023 and will be located at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in California, will be used by the DoE’s National Nuclear Security Administration to advance America’s nuclear security missions.
