Western Digital begins production of the world's tallest 3D NAND 'skyscraper'

Western Digital today announced that it has kicked off production of the industry’s densest 3D NAND flash chips, which stack 64 layers atop another and enable three bits of data to be stored in each cell. The 3D NAND flash chips are based on a vertical stacking or 3D technology that Western Digital and partner Toshiba call BiCS (Bit Cost Scaling). WD has launched its pilot production of its...

Modifying the 'middle end' of a popular compiler yields more-efficient parallel programs

Compilers are programs that convert computer code written in high-level languages intelligible to humans into low-level instructions executable by machines. But there's more than one way to implement a given computation, and modern compilers extensively analyze the code they process, trying to deduce the implementations that will maximize the efficiency of the resulting software. Code...

SDSC’s ‘Comet’ Supercomputer Surpasses ‘10,000 Users’ Milestone

Comet, the petascale supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), an Organized Research Unit of UC San Diego, has easily surpassed its target of serving at least 10,000 researchers across a diverse range of science disciplines, from astrophysics to redrawing the “tree of life”. In fact, about 15,000 users have used Comet to run science gateways jobs alone since the system went...
