20 Apr 2017 Hyperion (IDC) Paints a Bullish Picture of HPC Future [62589]
HPC Wire, April 20th 2017

"Hyperion Research - formerly IDC's HPC group - yesterday painted a fascinating and complicated portrait of the HPC community's health and prospects at the HPC User Forum held in Albuquerque, NM. HPC sales are up and growing ($22 billion, all HPC segments, 2016). Global exascale plans are solidifying (who, what, when, and how much ($)). The new kid on the block - all things 'big' data driven - is becoming an adolescent and behaving accordingly. And HPC ROI, at least as measured by Hyperion, is $551 per $1 invested (revenue growth) and $52 per $1 of profit invested..."

05 Apr 2017 Report: Supercomputer Growth Drives Record HPC Revenue In 2016 [62162]
insideHPC, April 5th 2017

"Hyperion Research reports that Worldwide factory revenue for the high-performance computing technical server market grew 4.4% in full-year 2016 to a record $11.2 billion, up from $10.7 billion in 2015 and from the previous record of $11.1 billion in exceptionally strong 2012. Hyperion Research is the new name for the former IDC HPC group.

The 2016 year-over-year market gain was driven by strong revenue growth in high-end and midrange HPC server systems, partially offset by declines in sales of lower-priced systems.

The Supercomputers segment for HPC server systems priced at $500,000 and up grew 26.2% to $4.0 billion in 2016, compared with $3.2 billion in 2015.

The Divisional segment for systems priced between $250,000 and $499,000 expanded 18.2%, from $1.9 billion in 2015 to $2.3 billion in 2016.

The Departmental HPC segment for HPC systems in the $100,000 to $249,000 price range declined by 19.3% to $3.1 billion, compared with $3.8 billion in 2015.

The Workgroup HPC segment for sub-$100,000 systems dropped 6.9% to $1.7 billion, from $1.8 billion in 2015. 2016 fourth-quarter revenues for the whole market grew

23 Mar 2017 Scientists Use IBM Power Systems to Assemble Genome of West Nile Mosquito [61792]
IBM, March 23rd, 2017

Technologies speed the sequencing of genomes at a fraction of the cost

A team led by researchers from The Center for Genome Architecture (TC4GA) at Baylor College of Medicine have used technologies from IBM, Mellanox and NVIDIA to assemble the 1.2 billion letter genome of the Culex quinquefasciatus mosquito, which carries West Nile virus. The new genome can help enable scientists to better combat West Nile virus by identifying vulnerabilities in the mosquito that the virus uses to spread.

The high performance computing (HPC) system dubbed "VOLTRON," is based on the IBM Power Systems platform, which provides scalable HPC capabilities necessary to accommodate a broad spectrum of data-enabled research activities.

20 Mar 2017 Mellanox Introduces New 100Gb/s Silicon Photonics Optical Engine Product Line [61807]
Mellanox, March 20th, 2017

Solutions Extend Options for Hyperscale, Enterprise, Storage and HPC Data Centers

Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. introduced a new line of 100Gb/s silicon photonics components to serve the growing demand of hyperscale Web 2.0 and cloud optical interconnects. The new product line provides module makers with access to a fully qualified portfolio of silicon photonics components and optical engine subassemblies.

"Our customers can now achieve significant time to market advantages for embedded modules and transceivers by using fully-qualified, and cost-effective silicon photonics component and chip sets," said Amir Prescher, senior vice president of business development and general manager of the interconnect business at Mellanox. "PSM4 represents the highest volume, most cost effective and flexible building blocks for 100Gb/s for single mode fiber transceivers for data center applications. End customers benefit by having more supplier options and Mellanox benefits by scaling our high-volume silicon photonics products."
