EU Considers Spend €1 Billion on Supercomputers

The European Commission has plans for a big joint investment with EU member states-- the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, a proposal for €1 billion in spending on "world-class European supercomputer infrastructure."

According to the EC, the acquisition of high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure is "crucial" for the competitiveness and Independence of the continent's data economy. After all, the current lack of necessary infrastructure forces European scientists and industry to process data outside the EU, bringing potential threats to privacy, data protection, commercial trade secrets and data ownership, particularly in sensitive applications.

Nvidia Claims

Nvidia presents what it claims is "the most powerful PC GPU ever created"-- the Titan V, the first consumer-grade GPU based on Volta architecture, previously the preserve of high performance computing applications.

Technically a trimmed-down (and, as such, less powerful) version of the enterprise-grade Tesla V100, the Titan V carries 21.1 billion transistors, 5120 Cuda cores, 640 additional tensor cores and 12GB of HBM2 memory on a massive 815mm sq die. The result is performance reaching up to 110 teraflops, or "9x that of its predecessor."

    Cloud, the Internet of Things, and the Edge – How the Colocation Market Will Evolve

    By Liz Cruz, Associate Director, Data Centers, Cloud & IT Infrastructure, IHS Markit

    The market for colocation services is dynamic. It’s marked by frequent mergers and acquisitions, sales of assets, and an evolution of drivers. All of which have led to steady double-digit CAGRs for over a decade. As with so many tech industries, colocation will be changed by its relationship with the Internet of Things. But before jumping into the future, let’s take a quick look in the review mirror.

    Outsourcing of Space & Power

    In the years following the global recession, the market for colocation (which IHS Markit defines as the leasing of space, power, and connectivity) benefited from enterprises’ uncertainty in the economy and their own future. Companies lacked the capital to invest in data centers, as well as the confidence in the future to build even when money was available. Moving data center operations into a colocation facility enabled companies to avoid major upfront investments and potential risk. The relatively shorter leases with a colocation provider and ability to scale was a comfortable solution for companies needing flexibility but not yet ready for the uncertainty of the cloud (where major concerns around privacy and data security abounded).
