Rüdiger Dorn to present Microsoft's Trusted Cloud Initiative at CloudScape VII

At CloudScape VII, held in March 2015 in Brussels,Primeur Magazinehad the opportunity to interview Rüdiger Dorn, Microsoft Cloud Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), based in the Seattle headquarters, leading the Microsoft Cloud strategy into the public sector. Microsoft has been part of the CloudScape organization committee over the years. This year, Microsoft participates in two very important aspects of the Cloud being law enforcement, integrating data privacy, and Cloud security. These two aspects are part of a broader initiative that Microsoft has been running for the last 12 to 15 months, the Microsoft Trusted Cloud Initiative. Read further...

RSC Group has deployed a massively parallel MVS-10P MP supercomputer based on RSC PetaStream architecture and the highest-performing Intel Xeon Phi 7120D at JSCC RAS

RSC Group, a developer and system integrator of innovative solutions for high-performance computing (HPC) and data centres in Russia and CIS, has completed the deployment of a new MVS-10P MP supercomputer based on massively parallel RSC PetaStream architecture at the Joint Supercomputer Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (JSCC RAS). It is the first project in CIS based on the highest-performing Intel Xeon Phi 7120D coprocessors. The MVS-10P MP supercomputer holds the 20th position in the new edition of the Top50 list of the most powerful computing systems in Russia and CIS, published on March 31st, 2015. The new MVS-10P MP system has expanded the JSCC RAS computing resources that are still based on the MVS-10P supercomputer built on RSC Tornado cluster architecture. This system deployed by RSC in 2012 still occupies the 4th position at the local Top50 list. The total performance of liquid-cooled RSC supercomputers at JSCC RAS now exceeds 600 Teraflops.
