NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 15 -- SC10 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., the global leader in server technology innovation and green computing, is exhibiting an impressive selection of high-performance computing (HPC) solutions at the SuperComputing 2010 (SC10) Conference (booth 3829) held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, November 15-18, including a first peek at the SuperServer 5086B-TRF that supports eight next-generation Intel Xeon MP processors in a 5U form factor.
"As the first-to-market pioneer of new server technology, Supermicro continues to provide customers with server solutions featuring the most advanced performance, density and efficiency," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "For example, our next-generation 8-way SuperServer packs 64 DIMMs, up to 10 PCI 2.0 x8 expansion slots and 24 hard drives into 5U to deliver exceptional density making it ideal for robust Super HPC applications."
Supermicro is also showcasing its capability to deliver all the IT hardware needs of datacenter, HPC and server farm customers by demonstrating new InfiniBand and 10G Ethernet switches along with its latest SuperServers, SuperWorkstations, Double-Sided Storage systems, TwinBlade and new 42U SuperRack.
In addition to providing exceptionally clean cable routing for maximum airflow and easy access to rear side system components, the SuperRack offers unprecedented configurability with over 100 optional modular components to choose from to enable easy and cost-effective customization to fulfill almost any customer rack requirements. In fact, loading a SuperRack with Supermicro 2U Twin2 (Squared) servers or Double-Sided Storage systems provides unbeatable configurations with extremely convenient and easy access to the rear side hot-swappable compute nodes, hard drives and power supplies for unmatched ease of maintenance.
While Supermicro continues to introduce new application-optimized 2U Twin2 servers, the company's new resource-optimized server solutions not only provide the best green technology advantages, such as Platinum Level power supplies that surpass 94 percent peak efficiency, advanced thermal cooling solutions and more efficient board-level designs to deliver the highest performance-per-watt, but also offer the most advanced features. These features include dual-port onboard 10GbE, 6Gb/s SAS2, up to 18 DIMM slots, and Universal I/O (UIO) interface to support up to three add-on cards in a 1U server to empower our customers to get the most out of their servers without dedicating extra resources.
Supermicro's new InfiniBand and 10GbE switches are designed from the ground up to deliver enterprise-class performance with advanced switching capabilities. The company offers switches in either a 1U form factor for standalone and top-of-rack deployments or in a modular form factor for integration into a SuperBlade system deployment, including systems using Supermicro TwinBlade or GPU blade modules.

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.
