Impact of Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities on HPC

Two security vulnerabilities in modern CPUs have recently been publicised, causing widespread concern in the computing industry. This is because the vulnerabilities are hardware-based and therefore have a potentially very broad impact which cannot be easily patched without consequences. Colloquially referred to as "Meltdown" and "Spectre," these vulnerabilities refer to attacks that can allow

Enabling Scientific Discovery through HPC at the University of Hull

High performance computing (HPC) enables faster and more robust scientific discovery by significantly enhancing data processing capability. The University of Hull has appropriately named their cluster Viper to reflect this speed and power. For Alex Sheardown, a PhD student at the university’s E.A. Milne Centre, HPC is vital to his research in astrophysics. Read
