The use of clouds for HPC workloads over the last 12-24 months has undergone a decided shift. Conversations had largely centered around whether cloud-based resources could be reliably utilized at scale at performance levels required for complex HPC workloads. They have now evolved to dialogues seeking understanding of which workloads are capable of being migrated to the cloud to meet a user’s cost, performance, security, and support requirements. This is inclusive of traditional HPC modeling and simulation (mod/sim) workloads and modern AI/HPDA/LLM workloads.
Supercomputing Applications and Innovations at CINECA
Thomas Sorensen, Earl Joseph
The HPC User Forum was established in 1999 to promote the health of the global HPC industry and address issues of common concern to users. In May 2021, the 76th HPC User Forum took place virtually. This update summarizes a presentation from that virtual conference given by Sanzio Bassini, Director of SuperCalculation, Applications & Innovation Dept. at the CINECA consortium. He is currently a member of the EuroHPC Infrastructure Advisory Board and Leader of the EuroHPC Italian Pre-Exascale Infrastructure Leonardo Project. Bassini provided important updates on CINECA’s family of supercomputers, their evolving use cases and applications, as well as their plans to expand capabilities and continue empowering research scientists in Europe and around the world.

Programming Languages Becoming More Ubiquitous: Most HPC Sites Use C/C++ and Python
Melissa Riddle and Jaclyn Ludema
The usage of multiple programming languages is becoming ubiquitous at HPC sites as the number of languages per site continues to rise. C/C++ and Python are particularly popular, with the majority of HPC sites using both languages at least some of the time. This data is from an annual study that is part of the eighth edition of Hyperion Research's HPC end-user-based tracking of the HPC marketplace. It included 181 HPC end-user sites with 3,830 HPC systems.
