Standford News: The U.S. Army has awarded a $105 million, five-year grant to a multi-institution consortium led by Stanford University to build a new home for the Army High-Performance Computing Research Center. The facility will enable advanced simulations to develop new materials for military vehicles and equipment, improve wireless battlefield communication, advance detection of biological or chemical attacks and stimulate innovations in supercomputing itself. The research may spawn civilian innovations as well.

Scalability.org: We worked on this white paper back at the end of December for AMD. We have significant data that goes along with it, very interesting data, that shows nicely that software and software+hardware accelerated applications can scale. The white paper is here or you can pull it from the AMD site.

DrDobbs: ..."But DARPA doesn't have a monopoly on grand challenges. Lawrence Livermore National Lab, for instance, has its own "Grand Challenge" in which it provides scientific computing facilities for researchers. In the current challenge -- oops, make that "grand challenge" -- the Lab has allocated 83.7 million CPU hours to 17 research projects ranging from astrophysics, chemistry, materials, and biosciences to earthquake and climate simulation on Lab supercomputers."...

InfoWorld: Once the domain of monolithic, multimillion-dollar supercomputers from Cray and IBM, HPC (high-performance computing) is now firmly within reach of today's enterprise, thanks to the affordable computing power of clustered standards-based Linux and Microsoft servers running commodity Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron processors. Many early movers are in fact already capitalizing on in-house HPC, assembling and managing small-scale clusters on their own.
