HAMBURG, Germany, June 20, 2011 --ISC’11 – Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of end-to-end connectivity solutions for servers and storage systems, announced today that its recently introduced end-to-end FDR InfiniBand connectivity products have been selected by the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) to provide world-leading connectivity performance for its upcoming SuperMUC supercomputer. Scheduled for full deployment in 2012, the SuperMUC system will utilize the performance power of IBM servers with onboard Mellanox FDR ConnectX®-3 InfiniBand mezzanine adapters and next-generation Intel Xeon processors, all connected and managed via 36-port and 648-port Mellanox FDR InfiniBand switches, software and copper and fiber cables.
“Implementing over 110,000 processor cores in a single system requires an efficient interconnect with industry-leading performance and scalability,” said Dr. Herbert Huber, head of the HPC system management group at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (www.lrz.de). “Utilizing Mellanox’s FDR InfiniBand, the SuperMUC system will provide the European science community with world-class supercomputing performance for their most compute-demanding simulations.”
“We are proud to have our end-to-end FDR InfiniBand products selected by the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre for their next-generation Petaflop supercomputer,” said John Monson, vice president of product marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox FDR InfiniBand technology delivers the needed performance, efficiency and scalability for building the next generation of leading HPC platforms, and will set the standard for Exascale computing.”
Mellanox’s next-generation ConnectX-3 FDR InfiniBand adapters, SX-6000 series switch systems, Unified Fabric Manager (UFM), Mellanox OS (MLNX-OS™), software accelerators and FDR copper and fiber cables deliver the highest level of networking performance while reducing system power consumption. The combination enables cost-effective networking topologies for high-performance computing, financial services, database, Web 2.0, virtualized data centers, and cloud computing.

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...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

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.
