SJTU student team succed at ASC14!

2014年4月29日 没有评论

From April 20 to 27, the final of the ASC Student Supercomputer Challenge (ASC14) took place at Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou, China.
Shanghai Jiao Tong University was part of the 16 ASC14 finalists of the 82 teams registered from five continents.
The teams had to built a small cluster with their own design and under 3000W power limit and  make the best performance of  the following 5 applications:
HPL (LINPACK) , Quantum Espresso (QE), SU2, and LICOM on their own machine, as well as 3D-EW on the Tianhe-2 supercomputer.
After a hard work for four months, the SJTU team got the e Prize, the Application Innovation Award, and won the competition!

Congratulation to them!

Earthquake Simulation Breaks Petaflop Barrier on SuperMUC

2014年4月18日 没有评论

insideHPC: A team of computer scientists, mathematicians and geophysicists have pushed the performance of the SeisSol earthquake simulation software on the SuperMUC computerat the Leibniz Supercomputing Center to beyond one petaflop, a factor of five improvement in speed.

The scientists from Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and Ludwig-Maximillians Universitaet Muenchen (LMU) were able to optimise the 70,000 lines of SeisSol code to a peak performance of 1.42 petaflops, corresponding to 44.5 per cent of Super MUC’s theoretically available capacity. This makes SeisSol one of the most efficient simulation programs of its kind worldwide.

About the Center
The Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC) of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) was
established in 2011. The primary function of the CHPC is the delivery and support HPC resources for
education and research. The CHPC’s supercomputer π, is currently the fastest supercomputer among
the universities in China. The cluster is based on a hybrid architecture of 6640 cores, 100 NVIDIA K20,
and 10 Intel Xeon Phi.
The CHPC is run by an international maintenance and research team. The center works closely with
both industry and academia. In 2011, the CHPC was awarded as the 16th CUDA Center of Excellence
(CCOE) by NVIDIA Corporation and joined the same year the Supercomputing Innovation Alliance as
a governmental department.
The CHPC also provide courses on HPC.

The Role
The Center for High Performance Computing of Shanghai Jiao Tong University is hiring for a GPU
computing specialist to support the HPC users regarding their GPU utilization and participates to the
administration of the system.
You’ll be part of an enthusiastic and united team, passionate about scientific computing and about
bringing good services.
This is an opportunity to work at the cutting edge research environment, such as instruction-based
programming technology and low energy consuming processors.
A strong customer-oriented approach is required, providing first line support to the cluster users.
Candidates will need to hold a Master degree or equivalent in a mathematical or scientific computing
