IBM "Minsky" Cluster Achieves Billion-Cell Reservoir Simulation in Record Time

A 30-node cluster of GPU-accelerated IBM “Minsky” servers has performed a billion-cell petroleum reservoir simulation in 92 minutes. Previous attempts at this scale required 20 hours using a large supercomputer with thousands of processors. Oil and gas companies rely on reservoir simulations to help figure out the most productive spots to drill. But since these simulations are so...

MIT Professor Runs Record Google Compute Engine job with 220K Cores

Over at the Google Blog, Alex Barrett writes that an MIT math professor recently broke the record for the largest-ever Compute Engine cluster, with 220,000 cores on Preemptible VMs. According to Google, this is the largest known HPC cluster to ever run in the public cloud. “Andrew V. Sutherland is a computational number theorist and Principal Research Scientist at MIT, and is using Compute...
