Is GPI the Programming Tool for the Future of HPC?

As the programming model du jour for HPC compute clusters, MPI has many limitations in terms of scalability and fault tolerance. With these requirements in mind, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute have developed a new programming interface called GPI that uses the parallel architecture of high-performance computers with maximum efficiency. I was trying to solve a calculation and simulation problem related to seismic data,” says Dr. Carsten Lojewski from the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM.

Tutorial on Scaling to Petaflops with Intel Xeon Phi

Over at Dr. Dobbs, Rob Farber has posted a tutorial on using MPI to tie together thousands of Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. Farber uses his MPI code example on the Stampede supercomputer at TACC, achieving a remarkable 2.2 Petaflops of performance when running on 3000 nodes. Observed scaling to 3000 nodes of the TACC Stampede supercomputer. This article demonstrates how to utilize Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors to evaluate a single objective function across a computational cluster using...

Jeff Layton on Getting Started with HPC Clusters

Generic Cluster Layout Over at Admin Magazine, Dell’s Jeff Layton has written a wide-ranging primer on Getting Started with HPC Clusters. And while he covers the bases with traditional beowulf topics, Layton says that using virtualization is a great path to understanding. One of the quickest and easiest ways to really get started is to use virtualization, which is sort of the...
