Impact of Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities on HPC 645 242 ClusterVision

Impact of Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities on HPC

Two security vulnerabilities in modern CPUs have recently been publicised, causing widespread concern in the computing industry. This is because the vulnerabilities are hardware-based and therefore have a potentially very broad impact which cannot be easily patched without consequences. Colloquially referred to as “Meltdown” and “Spectre,” these vulnerabilities refer to attacks that can allow malicious…

Enabling Scientific Discovery through HPC at the University of Hull

High performance computing (HPC) enables faster and more robust scientific discovery by significantly enhancing data processing capability. The University of Hull has appropriately named their cluster Viper to reflect this speed and power. For Alex Sheardown, a PhD student at the university’s E.A. Milne Centre, HPC is vital to his research in astrophysics. Read up…

University of Hull’s Viper in Scientific Computing

This year, ClusterVision designed and integrated a state of the art HPC cluster at the University of Hull. This cluster, nicknamed Viper, uses elements of the Intel Scalable System Framework, namely the latest Intel Broadwell processors (Xeon E5 2680v4) and one of the world’s first applications of the Intel Omni-Path Architecture. Jane Glasser wrote an…

HPC clusters managed by Trinity on optimised UberCloud containers provide compromiseless HPC in the Cloud

“High-Performance Computing in the Cloud? That does not really work for real number crunching.” That was the general opinion for a long time in the HPC community. Then Docker came along. Its containers solved some of the problems – especially replacing heavy Virtual Machines with light weight containers, but it still had a strong feeling…

University of Nottingham Research Centres invest in central HPC service provided by ClusterVision in preference to rolling their own

Have you ever seen the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises”? The Wayne Manor was actually a castle in Nottingham in the U.K. Apart from movies there is a lot of history attached to this respectable old town. Some of the newest scientific discoveries come out of Nottingham. The city houses the University of Nottingham. There is, for instance, the…
