Previously, HPC security breaches like this tended to be few and far between, however recent trends are increasing the vulnerabilities and threats faced by HPC systems. […]

CFD – an On-Demand Service?

More and more CFD users are finding they have a requirement for large processing power. As simulations get more complex and with a higher resolution, users really need the extra compute power to get a sensible completion time on their tasks. Mesh sizes seem to be growing rapidly; I’ve seen engineers generate meshes of three […]

Skills gap is changing the face of UK supercomputing

Once upon a time a tech geek was a near-commodity. When we built a High Performance Computer (HPC) or ‘server cluster’ we knew that our customers would have someone in-house, possibly a user, who would manage and maintain the system. HPC integrations were most common in the academic sector, so there was any number of […]
