ICICLE (Imperial College Intel Corporation Lenovo) collaboration designed to nurture the next generation of HPC and AI researchers, promote diversity and advance life-changing discoveries building on sustainable technology upgrades
Imperial College London has signed a joint collaboration with Lenovo and Intel to deliver more sustainable High Performance Computing (HPC) as part of their central Research Computing Service (RCS).
The agreement also creates a new ICICLE collaboration, in which Lenovo and Intel will support access to a range of long-term research, emerging technology and gender balance initiatives to help nurture the next generation of researchers and prepare Imperial's student population for the tremendous opportunities in the HPC and AI spaces.
The new solution will enable parallel compute workloads for all faculties (Engineering, Natural Sciences, Medicine, Business School), providing researchers and their industry partners with next generation High Performance Computing to help address global challenges.
The Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Garching near Munich procures its next supercomputer - an exascale capable system and is already working with two technology partners to develop the most suitable system for users as part of an innovation partnership.
Lenovo announced that it is working together with the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) to build Europe's first High Performance Computer (HPC) prototype as part of an innovation partnership. Lenovo will be one of two companies selected to provide one or more prototypes for the exascale-ready system planned for the middle of this decade at the LRZ.
These are to be optimized for the needs of LRZ users from many different fields in science. Only after completion of these research and development activities and the subsequent evaluation will it become clear which of the two participating technology companies will build and maintain the next exascale generation supercomputer.
New Lenovo TruScale for HPC feature expediates customer access to High Performance Computing hardware with shortened procurement and budget alignment times
Lenovo announced a new option for a metered TruScale model, designed specifically for a High Performance Computing (HPC) as a Service solution, that shortens procurement cycles and allows customers to pay only for the IT infrastructure they use in a monthly as-a-service payment model.
The enhanced Lenovo TruScale offering ensures HPC deployments are delivered by its HPC Professional Services team, who are experts in end-to-end ownership of HPC deployments by project managing the delivery of TruScale for HPC hardware to service deployment. Once deployed, a dedicated HPC Systems Admin team takeover to proactively monitor the hardware and software applications services to improve performance and cluster availability.
HPC and AI as a service available to public and private organizations of any size as part of new agreement
Lenovo signed a new agreement with Al Hathboor Bikal.ai, to provide public and private sector customers with cutting-edge high performance cloud computing systems to support advanced digital transformation projects which focus on developing innovation in the UAE. Lenovo will also provide systems and expertise to support Al Hathboor Bikal.ai to build and operate a new sustainable data center at Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation Park (SRTIP).
Lenovo is installing a powerful high-performance computer (HPC) at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), a world-leading research institution in its field. This is expected to be operational by the end of August as HPC partner pro-com ensures seamless integration.
The new system is intended to support researchers in their work to gain a deeper understanding of the effects of climate change, in order to subsequently develop strategies for the sustainable existence of mankind and nature. Particular focus will be placed on increasing efficiency and performance over the previous system. HPC systems with Lenovo's Neptune Liquid Cooling technology will be used for this purpose.
