QLogic HCAs added to Voltaire's 40 Gb/s QDR InfiniBand portfolio as fully interoperable networking solutions for the HPC marketplace
ALISO VIEJO, Calif., May 25 -- QLogic Corp. today announced that its QDR InfiniBand host channel adapters (HCAs) will be available from Voltaire as part of the company's end-to-end portfolio of QDR InfiniBand solutions. Fully tested for interoperability, Voltaire will offer QLogic 7300 Series HCAs alongside its Grid Director line of QDR InfiniBand switches and software, providing HPC customers with end-to-end 40 Gb/s InfiniBand performance.
"The QLogic 7300 Series is a highly compelling QDR InfiniBand HCA that complements all of our high performance Grid Director 40 Gb/s InfiniBand switches," said Asaf Somekh, vice president of marketing at Voltaire. "This collaboration with QLogic enables us to offer customers more highly scalable connectivity options from one convenient source."
"This agreement marks the continued expansion of our InfiniBand HCAs in the HPC market place," said Jesse Parker, vice president and general manager of the Network Solutions Group at QLogic. "QLogic 7300 Series HCAs deliver a higher messaging rate and lower scalable latency than any comparative cluster interconnect available today. Delivering a message rate of 30 million messages per second, the QLogic 7300 Series outperforms comparative QDR adapters by a ratio of more than five to one(1). We look forward to collaborating with Voltaire to address customers' increasingly complex HPC requirements."
The QLogic 7300 Series HCAs are fully interoperable with the Voltaire Grid Director portfolio of QDR InfiniBand switches and will be available from Voltaire in early Q3.

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 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.
