Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang announces Arm server support consisting of hardware and software building blocks to enable HPC development with Nvidia on Arm throughout the HPC industry. Nvidia teamed up with Arm and the Arm Server HPC ecosystem, including Ampere, Fujitsu and Marvell collaborating also with Cray, HPE and more.

Nvidia partners with Microsoft to provide Azure cloud NDv2 supercomputer instance that can use up to 800 Nvidia Tensor Core GPUs interconnected on a single Mellanox InfiniBand backend network. This enables customers to rent an entire AI supercomputer on-demand. Microsoft and Nvidia engineers used 64 NDv2 instances on a pre-release version of the cluster to train BERT, a popular natural language conversational AI model, in a mere three hours achieved in part with Nvidia’s CUDA-core technology and interconnects by Mellanox.

NASA is using Supercomputing for aeronautics research, acoustics accross airplanes, cruise vehicles, launch vehicles also using supercomputing for earth science.
Using IBM Power9 and Nvidia Volta GPU technology, the Summit system is a proven AI pioneer expected to deliver in excess of 200 Peta flops of performance, likely making it one of the world’s most powerful supercomputer.
The new Arm Allinea Studio release is a comprehensive and integrated tools suite to help Scientific computing, HPC and Enterprise developers to achieve best performance on modern server-class Arm-based platforms. Check out https://developer.arm.com/hpc for more info.
Singularity enables users to have full control of their environment. Singularity containers can be used to package entire scientific workflows, software and libraries, and even data. This means that you don’t have to ask your cluster admin to install anything for you - you can put it in a Singularity container and run. Did you already invest in Docker? The Singularity software can import your Docker images without having Docker installed or being a superuser. Need to share your code? Put it in a Singularity container and your collaborator won’t have to go through the pain of installing missing dependencies. Do you need to run a different operating system entirely? You can “swap out” the operating system on your host for a different one within a Singularity container. As the user, you are in control of the extent to which your container interacts with its host. There can be seamless integration, or little to no communication at all. Read more: http://singularity.lbl.gov/index.html
