Los Alamos National Laboratory announced an industry-first computational storage deployment targeting a next-generation storage system for HPC sited at Los Alamos. This new system will support the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Advanced Simulation and Computing program responsible for ensuring the performance, safety, and reliability of nuclear weapons. “We believe that emerging non-volatile memory express (NVMe) …

A new agreement hopes to speed along a nuclear reactor technology that could be used to fuel deep-space exploration and possibly power human habitats on the Moon or Mars. Los Alamos National Laboratory has signed an agreement to license the “Kilopower” space reactor technology to Space Nuclear Power Corporation (SpaceNukes), also based in Los Alamos, NM. “We …

Los Alamos National Laboratory is partnering with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and NVIDIA to focus on delivering next-generation technologies to accelerate scientific computing. New developments will include innovative high-performance computing (HPC) technology efforts to advance greater performance efficiency, workflow efficiency and analytics. Additional details on the collaboration will be unveiled this fall. “We are excited …

A new algorithm that fast forwards simulations could bring greater use ability to current and near-term quantum computers, opening the way for applications to run past strict time limits that hamper many quantum calculations. “Quantum computers have a limited time to perform calculations before their useful quantum nature, which we call coherence, breaks down,” said …

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers delivered four pulsed power modules to Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) this month, making excellent time despite many challenges presented by COVID-19. The modules are key elements in a novel diagnostic capability jointly developed by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), NNSS and LLNL to be deployed in the U1A …
