High availability 2U Twin features two hot-plug DP server nodes with NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and six hot-swap HDDs each
PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 16 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., a leader in application-optimized, high-performance server solutions, is demonstrating the company's new 2U Twin servers equipped with two NVIDIA Tesla C1060 GPUs at SuperComputing 2009, Oregon Convention Center, booth 2355. A powerful solution for compute-intensive HPC applications, this new architecture increases the maximum storage capacity per 1U server node 50 percent by supporting six hot-swap 3.5" hard disk drives. Each 2U Twin system features two hot-plug dual-processor (DP) server nodes and redundant power for high availability.
"To further extend our leadership position in GPU computing system architectures, the new 2U Twin GPU architecture features two hot-plug nodes with x16 non-blocking native Gen2 PCI-Express connectivity and redundant 1400-watt Gold Level (93 percent+ efficiency) power supplies for maximum availability," said Phidias Chou, vice president of worldwide sales, Supermicro. "With Supermicro's efficient thermal design, these highly parallel, dual-GPU systems are optimized 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 latest addition to Supermicro's family of GPU-based systems, this versatile 2U Twin (6026TT-HD Series SuperServer) introduces an innovative architecture with hot-swappable devices to facilitate easy maintenance and eliminate downtime, while also saving power and space by sharing the same chassis and power supplies. Each computing node features onboard QDR InfiniBand for 40 Gb/second high-bandwidth connectivity and supports six hot-swap 3.5" SATA drives to deliver unprecedented I/O performance.
"GPUs are now being broadly deployed for computing applications in datacenters," said Andy Keane, general manager, Tesla business at NVIDIA. "This innovative 2U design from Supermicro puts industry-best GPU compute density in a highly scalable and manageable product configuration."
To support educational research projects, Supermicro and NVIDIA are offering special discounted pricing to accredited two- and four-year educational institutions on all Supermicro systems equipped with NVIDIA Tesla GPUs.

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.
