Turning Up The Volume To 11

Supercomputing Gets Even Cooler

by Amelia Dalton

In this week's Fish Fry, I have a couple of super-cool supercomputing super-stories for you. I look into the Blue Waters Project that aims to solve the world's most complex problems through petascale computing. I also interview Stefan Mohl (Mitrionics - CTO) about how Mitrionics has reorganized this year, how they are shifting the focus of their supercomputing FPGAs to the HPC market, and how Mitrion-C is facilitating that new focus.

I have a super awesome new nerdy giveaway to throw your way this week, but you'll have to tune in to find out what it is and how you can win.

In this week's Fish Fry, I dive into the deep waters of supercomputing. I interview Mitrionics CTO Stefan Mohl about how Mitrionics' supercomputing FPGAs are finding a new home in the HPC market and I check out how The Blue Waters Project is looking to solve the world's most complex problems one petaflop at a time. Does this episode rank as one of the year's best Fish Frys? Let me know!
