ETH Zurich in Switzerland is one of the most highly regarded science and technology universities, one known for its cutting-edge research and innovation.
When it come to data centres, the pinnacle of innovation right now centres on how data analytics, sensors and AI can be used to improve power and performance.
Over the last few years, a group of researchers from both ETH Zurich and the University of Bologna has been at the forefront of advanced data centre monitoring research.
European high-performance supercomputers were subject to a string of related cyber attacks last week that forced academic insitutions to temporarily take systems offline.
A large number of the academic institutions impacted were using their supercomputers to run Covid-19 research workloads.
Disruptive Live’s interview with Matt George, Marketing Director EMEA, Equinix, from this year’s Data Centre World at the London ExCeL.
The US Department of Energy’s (DoE) upcoming El Capitan supercomputer will be capable of 2 exaflops of computing performance, making it more powerful than the top 200 fastest supercomputers combined.
The record-breaking supercomputer, which is expected to be delivered in early 2023 and will be located at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in California, will be used by the DoE’s National Nuclear Security Administration to advance America’s nuclear security missions.
As the UK battles extreme weather conditions for the second week running, the Met Office has revealed plans to build the world’s most powerful weather and climate supercomputer.
The country’s national weather service announced it will spend £1.2 billion over 10 years building the supercomputer, which will replace the Cray XC40 system built for £97 million in 2014.
The new supercomputer will be deployed to improve rainfall predictions and airport forecasting. Data collected by the system will be used to more accurately predict storms, identify effective flood defence locations and predict changes to the global climate.
