ORNL Creates Programming System for NVM Main Memory Systems

Non-volatile memory (NVM) is playing a more important role in the memory architectures of HPC systems as illustrated by recent deployments and procurements. Yet there exist neither standard language constructs nor portable programming systems that provide support for these types of emerging memory architectures. To address this issue, researchers at the Future Technologies Group at Oak Ridge...

Amazon Adds Nvidia GPU Firepower to its Compute Cloud

Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) offers businesses the opportunity to rent scalable servers and host applications and services remotely, rather than pay for and handle the infrastructure and management of those resources on their own. The service, which first entered beta a little more than ten years ago, has historically focused on CPUs, but that’s changing now, courtesy of a...
