FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 6 -- AMAX, a leading HPC solutions innovator, today announced the availability of the new ClusterMax SuperG-B1 GPGPU blade cluster solution for compute-intensive scientific and research deployments. Based on the BladeMax AS-7200G, an advanced high-density 7U 20-GPU blade-based cluster building block, the ClusterMax SuperG-B1 delivers high-density and performance with maximized number of GPUs per 1U rack space. The SuperG-B1 offers a reliable and energy-efficient architecture for high performance computing applications used in a broad array of markets including financial services, oil and gas, life sciences, government and academic.
The SuperG-B1 cluster enables up to 120 of the highest performing GPGPUs plus 120 Intel Xeon 5600 series processors to be deployed in a standard 42U rack. Featuring the latest InfiniBand technologies, the cluster is equipped with dual 40Gb/s QDR ports per blade for high interconnect speed and minimal latency. The cluster delivers maximum performance with the best CPU to GPU balance and optimized I/O. Boasting up to 94 percent power-efficiency, the Platinum-level redundant power supplies fuel blistering computational performance using less power with greater reliability. Managed through a single, easy to use graphical user interface, the SuperG-B1's throughput is maximized by minimizing system management overhead, thus improving total overall performance.
"The HPC market is always in high demand for more computing performance and we are working hard to surpass technology limitations by continuously introducing denser and faster heterogeneous GPGPU cluster solutions," said Winston Tang, product development manager for AMAX. "The ClusterMax SuperG-B1 cluster is an amalgamation of the latest high-performance technologies to maximize technical applications."
Every AMAX cluster is customizable and designed to suit your exact project requirements, from performance and budget, to delivering maximum ROI and minimum TCO. With the ultimate ease of deployment in mind, all clusters are shipped fully assembled and ready to plug and play in any environment. For more information on AMAX, visit http://www.amax.com.

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.
