Why Fugaku, Japan’s fastest supercomputer, went virtual on AWS

Japan’s Mount Fuji is famous for its height and width but it’s also reachable by novice hikers without lots of time on their hands due to the nation’s efforts to make it accessible. Now, the researchers behind one of the world’s fastest supercomputers, Fugaku, which is another name for Mt. Fuji, are trying to make the supercomputer just as accessible on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Read this post to learn more.

How to put a supercomputer in the hands of every scientist

The AWS Cloud gives you access to virtually unlimited infrastructure suitable for high performance computing (HPC) workloads. With HPC, you can remove long queues and waiting times so you don’t have to choose availability over performance. In this technical guide, learn how to use AWS ParallelCluster to set up and manage an HPC cluster in a flexible, elastic, and repeatable way.

Unleashing Seismic Modeling at Scale: We Can’t Stop Quakes, But We Can Be Better Prepared

The terrible headlines are all too familiar. A major earthquake strikes, with a devastating impact on lives, economies, and the environment. The initial event often triggers additional disasters, such as fires or tsunamis that unleash substantial damage. The 2004 Indian Ocean undersea earthquake spawned a tsunami that took more than 225,000 lives. More than 100,000 people were lost as a result of a 7.0 temblor in Haiti in 2010. In some cases, the impact of a major seismic event will continue for decades or longer, as we’ve seen in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster of 2011.
