The Data Center Journey, From Central Utility To Center Of The Universe


High-performance computing (HPC) has taken on many meanings over the years. The primary goal of HPC is to provide the needed computational power to run a data center – a utilitarian facility dedicated to storing, processing, and distributing data. The beginning of HPC Historically, the data being processed was the output of business operations for a given organization. Transactions, custome... » read more

A New Era For HPC-Driven Engineering Simulation


Market pressure and technological advancements have rapidly changed the way engineers work. Design engineers increasingly work with larger and more complex models, must conduct more frequent simulation analysis, and iterate more rapidly. Compute constraints, however, often result in engineers limiting model sizes and simulation fidelity, or relying on lengthy, overnight simulation runs. ... » read more
