Innovation rules! HPE earns four HPCwire 2018 Readers' and Editors’ Choice Awards

We’re proud to share the details on the recognition HPE just received this year for HPC innovation in physical sciences, high-performance data analytics, HPC-enabled scientific achievement, and energy.

HPE HPC_SC18.jpgHPE continues to power advanced high-performance computing (HPC) systems to dramatically improve experiences and enable breakthrough scientific discoveries. And today, we have some HPC milestones and some industry recognitions to share.

HPC milestones met

This year marks the 30th year that HPE has participated in the Supercomputing conference. And for five years running, HPE has been a winner in the annual HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards.

The awards are based on a nomination and voting process within the global HPCwire community, as well as selections from the HPCwire editors. The award announcement takes place every year at Supercomputing conference, demonstrating innovation in high-performance computing, networking, storage, and data analysis. Here’s the complete list of 2018 winners.

We earned three HPCwire Readers’ Choice awards:

  • Best Use of HPC in Physical Sciences: A team at Northwestern University using Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center’s (PSC) Bridges that integrates Intel, NVIDIA and HPE technologies, combined HPC simulation and machine learning tools for unlocking discoveries of compounds used in lithium batteries and energy production.
  • Best Use of High-Performance Data Analytics: NASA Twins Study of spacefaring and earthbound astronaut twins, made possible by PSC Bridges large-memory notes. The study uses Bridges large-memory capabilities, combined with HPE ProLiant DL580 Gen10 nodes, each with 3TB of RAM and 80 Intel Xeon cores.
  • Top HPC-Enabled Scientific Achievement: More than a year ago, NASA and HPE launched the Spaceborne Computer—the first commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) supercomputer—to the InternaHPE_HPCwire Award_Scientific Achievement_blog.jpgtional Space Station (ISS) for a one-year experiment, proving it can turn on, achieve one teraFLOP, and withstand the harsh conditions of space. It is now available for use as the first above-the-cloud supercomputer for astronauts. This is the first time researchers aboard the ISS can use the power of a supercomputer to process and complete research on their own, accelerating time to solution and testing boundaries for expanded space travel. Check out the Spaceborne Computer timeline to learn about its key milestones in space.

We are excited to have also received one prestigious HPCwire Editors’ Choice award:HPCwire Energy Award.jpg

  • Best Use of HPC in Energy: Eni, an Italian oil and gas company, leverages HPE and NVIDIA technology in an HPC4 cluster. This advanced a GPU-based approach to seismic processing that was coupled with a multi-tier storage solution, making Eni instrumental to large oil discoveries.

We invite you to learn more about our HPC technologies and solutions, including how to adopt accessible and affordable supercomputing solutions, no matter your industry or the size of your organization.

Dr. Eng Lim Goh is the VP and CTO, HPC and AI, at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. His current research interest is in the progression from data intensive computing to analytics, inductive machine learning, deductive reasoning and artificial specific to general intelligence. In collaboration with NASA he is currently principal investigator of a year-long experiment aboard the International Space Station - this project won both the 2017 HPCwire Top Supercomputing Achievement and Hyperion Research Innovation Awards. In 2005, InfoWorld named Dr. Goh one of the 25 Most Influential CTOs in the world. He was included twice in the HPCwire list of -People to Watch. In 2007, he was named -Champions 2.0- of the industry by BioIT World magazine, and received the HPC Community Recognition Award from HPCwire. Dr. Goh did his postgraduate work at Cambridge University, UK. He has been granted six U.S. patents with three pending.


Best use of High-performance award in analytics! kudos for that
