Last week was a big week for supercomputing and HPC on Intel Chip Chat. It may have had something to do with ISC 2011. ðŸ˜‰ Last week, you got twice the dose starting with FZ Juelichâ€™s Norbert Eicher, who elaborated on the efficiency and portability that the Intel MIC architecture delivers. Mr. Eicher also discussed the collaborative work FZ Juelich is doing with Intel, and other HPCS and cluster computing organizations throughout Europe.
In the second dose, Allyson Klein chats with Michael Showerman, the Technical Program Manager for the National Center for Supercomputing. Mr. Showerman explains the Science of Computing & Intel MIC. They continue to chat about the science of technical computing and the scalability & portability of the Intel MIC architecture.
For your Conversations in the Cloud, last week Dave Nicholson of EMC took some time to discuss Solutions for the Cloud with EMC and the Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA). Mr. Nicholson is the Director of the newly created EMC Solutions Group. In this podcast, he further talks on the journey to the cloud and what it means for your IT infrastructure.
In a webcast with Gproxy and Intel, Gproxyâ€™s Rafael Tucat, Leo Tuzzo, and Intelâ€™s Priya Abani discuss a Balanced Compute Model for the Cloud. They review the Gproxy IntelÂ® Cloud Builders reference architecture focusing on the Client Device Score (CLIDES) by Gproxy, which ranks a client deviceâ€™s capabilities including CPU, CPU load, connection type, bandwidth and screen resolution, helping to optimize the user experience based on the client deviceâ€™s capabilities.
