Radio Free HPC: Cerebras, EPCC and Chippewa Falls Remodel
We have a full crew for this wide-ranging episode of RFHPC. We start with a discussion of the new Cerebras and HPE based supercomputer slated for the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Center in, well, Edinburgh. We talk some feeds and speeds for the new boxes, particularly about the 400,000 core wafer Cerebras box, along with some of the workloads that will be run on it. Jessi is particularly pleased that the humanities will be getting some time on the machine to look at ancient languages.
The crew also spends some time talking about the upcoming $22 million remodel of HPE’s Chippewa Falls manufacturing campus.
Henry Newman’s Reasons Why No One Should Ever Be Online. Ever: He has one, and as usual, it’s not a good thing for us.

Dan: Ransomware victim neglects to fix vulnerability and, guess what? They got ransomed again!
