KOCHI (Cochin), India, Dec. 16 -- Boston IT Solutions (India) Private Limited, now in its 17th year as a distribution partner for Silicon Valley-based Super Micro Computer, Inc., today announced its participation as a Silver sponsor at the HiPC international conference on high performance computing.
Following the successful launch of Boston India in September at the Broadcast India show in Mumbai, Boston will be continuing this success by showcasing and demonstrating the latest developments in its range of liquid-cooled servers, NVIDIA Tesla-based GPU compute nodes and Quattro low-power cluster nodes. The event takes place Dec. 16-19 at the Le Meridien Hotel Kochi (Cochin); India and Boston can be found exhibiting at stand numbers 8-9.
"As we are all aware, energy costs are increasing rapidly, globally, at a worrying rate; in particular some of the recent changes that are taking place within India in terms of costs and headroom for future expansion have generated even further demand for power-optimised server/compute platforms; in particular from within the HPC arena," says Manoj Nayee, managing director of Boston India and Boston Limited in the United Kingdom.
At HiPC, Boston will be demonstrating the significant power savings made available by its latest generation of products and appliances, including numerous Boston innovations, such as its Quattro cluster nodes, GPU-based compute nodes and liquid-cooled server platforms. With a full range of solutions based on leading-edge hardware from Supermicro, Boston platforms assure staggering levels of computational power as well as industry-leading performance per watt.
An excellent example of this would be Boston's range of Quattro cluster nodes, which consolidate up to four HPC nodes within a single enclosure that shares a single common power supply across various machines. With full support for the latest Six Core AMD Opteron Istanbul processors as well as Intel's latest generation of Nehalem based Xeon processors, Boston's Quattro range provides processing density that simply cannot be beaten by traditional CPU-based clustered platforms.
Following its successful launch at the Supercomputing show (SC09) in Portland, Ore., Boston will also be showcasing its liquid-cooled server for the first time to the Asian channel. Its innovative solution features patented "modular liquid immersion" technology from Iceotope Ltd. that leverages the thermal superiority of liquids to reduce the operating costs of large-scale computing facilities such as data centres.
Each server motherboard is completely immersed in an individually-sealed bath of an inert liquid coolant, which passively transfers heat away from the sensitive electronics to a tightly-integrated heat exchanger formed by the wall of the bath where water is continuously recirculated and cooled. Compared to traditional air cooling systems, the two liquids are thousands of times more effective in capturing and transferring heat, thereby requiring much less energy to run the overall system as the water can be allowed to run warmer whilst still providing adequate cooling.
"We will also be showcasing our latest generation of Venom GPU compute platforms, which provide stunning levels of raw computational power by combining the latest in GPU and CPU based technologies. As an example, Boston's Venom T1000 GPU compute node provides over a staggering Two TFLOPs of processing power within a single 1U compute node that provides industry leading performance."

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).

he 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.
