2-Teraflop SuperServer 6016GT-TF-TM2 with two Tesla GPUs plus a new 4U system that supports four Tesla GPUs
HAMBURG, Germany, June 23 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., a leader in application-optimized, high performance server solutions, is showcasing the fastest 1U server on the planet, its new, 2-Teraflop SuperServer 6016GT-TF-TM2, this week at ISC'09 in Hamburg, Germany (booth 310). This massively parallel processing dual-GPU server is the first 1U multi-GPU (graphics processing unit) system with a fully non-blocking architecture. Optimized for performance and reliability, the 6016GT-TF-TM2 supports dual Nehalem CPUs and features two NVIDIA Tesla M1060 GPUs via two Gen2 PCI-Express x16 connections.
"Supermicro's new 6016GT-TF supercomputing servers, by far the fastest 1U servers in the world, feature multiple x16 non-blocking native Gen2 PCI-Express connectivity to the GPU, highly reliable thermal optimization, and industry-leading power efficiency, making them the first ever truly optimized GPU servers," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "These highly parallel, multicore, multi-GPU systems represent today's cutting-edge solutions for a wide range of graphics and computationally intensive applications in fields like medical imaging, oil and gas exploration, quantum chemistry, financial simulation, genomics and astrophysics."
"The importance of GPU Computing in both research and enterprise is growing rapidly," said Andy Keane, general manager of GPU Computing at NVIDIA. "Supermicro's innovative Tesla-based 1U server is tightly integrated to provide the highest possible compute density and a uniform building block for large-scale GPU Computing deployments."
The SuperServer 6016GT-TF Series is the first of an entire family of GPU-based systems created to meet the requirements of the emerging high-performance, highly-parallel computing segment. Supermicro is also unveiling its SuperWorkstation 7046GT-TRF, a 4U/tower system that supports four double-width GPUs and an additional three PCI-e slots for high-bandwidth I/O, at ISC. These platforms feature Supermicro's new Gold level (93 percent efficiency) power subsystems and deliver breakthrough performance-per-watt.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
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 study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

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.
