Boston (#263) will unveil its ARM-as-a- service, the world’s first ARM Cloud server dedicated to facilitating soſtware migration to the ARM architecture. Te ARM-as-a- Service (AaaS) has been designed specifically to ease the transition of moving or migrating soſtware to the ARM architecture. Te solution is based on the Boston Viridis Microserver, a self-contained, ultra-low power cluster solution that is based on processor technology from ARM. AaaS is the world’s first commercially available Cloud offering, based on Calxeda EnergyCore ARM-based processor technology. Built specifically to assist in migrating and


porting applications from x86 to ARM, Boston has teamed up with soſtware developers Ellexus for their product Breeze, a choice of product also made by ARM to profile and troubleshoot applications on its own HPC cluster. www.boston.co.uk


At ISC’13, Bull (#245) will be showing its broad range of Extreme Computing solutions, with a special focus on the bullx B700 Direct Liquid Cooling blade series, which delivers drastic savings in energy consumption.


Cooling takes place inside the blade itself, through direct contact between the heat- producing components and a cold plate with coolant circulating within it. Tis enables warm water to be used for cooling, boosting energy performance by around 40 per cent compared to traditional data centres, despite being just as easy to maintain as standard, air-cooled servers. Bull will also be exhibiting a full range of


accelerated servers. And for HPC users who are worried about the scalability of their codes on many-core systems, experts from the recently inaugurated Bull Center for Excellence in Parallel Programming will be present and ready to answer questions and suggest solutions. www.bull.com


Ciara Technologies (#361) is a global leader in the design, development and integration of HPC solutions. Its Nexxus C deskside cluster now includes the addition of liquid-cooled Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors into the GPU node. Each node can support up to four Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors or an impressive 4.5 teraflops. In 2011, Ciara launched the Nexxus C


deskside cluster. Tis design can support up to 20 processors, 16 GP-GPUs or Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors and nearly 2TB of memory. It is designed to work in a lab or office workspace with acoustics in mind due to the use of industrial-grade liquid-cooling. www.ciaratech.com
