Personal supercomputer, 1U Twin, 4-way/2-way blade and rack servers with superior computational power, performance-per-watt and energy efficiency
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 18 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., a leader in application-optimized, high performance server and workstation solutions, is showcasing its industry-leading HPC server solutions at SC08 in Austin, Texas (booth 1033). With superior computing density and energy efficiency, Supermicro's new breakthrough personal supercomputer, 1U Twin and 4-way/2-way blade and rack servers deliver exceptional performance while saving energy and operating costs.
"Our 10-blade server system based on the SBI-7125C-T3 blade is an extremely cost-effective supercomputer. This solution now provides the scientific community the opportunity to enable a personal supercomputer next to their desks with the same computing power previously only available via large server installations in a dedicated IT room," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "This optimized blade solution features 93 percent power supply efficiency, innovative and highly efficient thermal and cooling system designs, and industry-leading system performance-per-watt (300+ GFLOPS/kW), making it the greenest, most power-saving blade solution."
As the industry's most optimized 1U HPC solutions, Supermicro 1U Twin servers support up to 4 processor sockets via two DP nodes in 1U of rack space. This 0.5U density (84 server nodes in a standard 42U rack) combined with optional onboard InfiniBand or 10GbE makes these platforms an excellent choice for high-performance computing (HPC) clusters where space, cost, energy-efficiency and density are high priorities. Upcoming Supermicro systems optimized for Intel's next-generation Xeon (Nehalem) processors and the recently announced AMD Shanghai processors will be demonstrated at SC08, too.
With its SuperBlade family, Supermicro offers the industry's most extensive selection of application-optimized blade configurations. Supermicro's enterprise-class SuperBlade features both dual and quad-processor blades for performance, scalability and flexibility. For maximum computational performance and density, SuperBlade supports up to 10 four-socket server blades (160 CPU cores) in one 7U enclosure. With 960 processing cores per 42U rack and Mellanox 4X DDR InfiniBand, SuperBlade is one of the densest and fastest blade server solutions in the industry. Additional cost savings associated with less IT space required as well as easier maintenance and management make these solutions a very attractive option for enterprise and high performance computing applications.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
