Boston India unveil their new Tesla powered MD SimCluster & their latest Viridis ultra dense, ultra low power computing platform based on Calxeda ARM EnergyCore processors at HiPC 2011
BANGALORE, India, Dec. 20 -- Boston IT Solutions, now in its 18th year as distribution partner for Super Micro Computer (NASDAQ: SMCI), will be showcasing their latest range of GPU and CPU based solutions optimised for the high performance computing arena. Boston will be providing live demonstrations of their NVIDIA Tesla MD SimCluster, an off-the-shelf, ready-to-deploy solution that enhances scientific research and discovery.
In addition, Boston will be launching the Boston Viridis Project, a new generation of ultra low power computing platforms based on Calxeda ARM EnergyCore SOC (System on a chip) processors. They will also be showcasing their LSS200 liquid submersion server by Hardcore Computer's as well as Boston's innovative SuperFlex Blade powered by HPC Links' Open VERTEX 1.0 software platform. For more information please visit Boston on stand 14 and 15.
Designed in partnership with industry experts NVIDIA and Supermicro, Boston's NVIDIA Tesla GPU based MD SimCluster is an off-the-shelf, ready-to-deploy cluster solution that has been developed and optimised to provide industry leading hybrid compute performance. Available in a variety of configurations that deliver up to 42 teraflops of HPC performance, the SimCluster suite delivers the easiest way to purchase, deploy and maintain a hybrid GPU and CPU based research cluster.
With the launch of 3 "out of the box" preconfigured hybrid compute configurations the MD Simcluster is able to cut down simulation time from days to hours, significantly accelerating the research of scientists in a number of scientific domains. The entry level SimCluster configuration consists of 8 NVIDIA Tesla M2075 GPUs and 4 Intel CPUs, providing computational performance of up to 8 Teraflops. A mid-range Simcluster combines 16 NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPUs and 8 Intel CPUs to give a compute performance of up to 20 Teraflops. And finally the high-end configuration hosts 32 NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPUs and 16 Intel CPUs in a 42U rack to provide up to 42 TeraFlops of processing power.
In collaboration with Calxeda, Boston are also unveiling the latest generation of ultra low power computing platforms based on Calxeda ARM EnergyCore SOC processors. With 48 nodes available in a 2U enclosure, the Boston Viridis Project can provide for up to a staggering 900 servers per industry standard 42U rack and can deliver up to 10x the performance per watt over existing processor technologies. The Boston Viridis Project offers data centre performance whilst consuming power comparable to a mobile device, assuring industry leading power, space and operational costs.
Based on a completely new architecture outside of the traditional x86 platforms, this exciting new platform provides a revolutionary new approach to highly parallel, low power computing. A self contained highly extensible multi node cluster provides integral high speed interconnects and storage that is contained within a tiny 2U rack mount appliance.
Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston Limited, says, "We are excited to be demonstrating a truly diverse range of computational solutions this year. With numerous technologies unique to Boston our value proposition within the HPC sector continues to grow from strength to strength with numerous innovations such as our "out of box" hybrid compute clusters, highly efficient servers using liquid submersion cooling and our latest generation of ultra low power compute platforms based on Calxeda ARM EnergyCore SOC (System on a chip) processors".

The world's largest supercomputers, like Tianhe-2, are great at traditional, compute-intensive HPC workloads, such as simulating atomic decay or modeling tornados. But data-intensive applications--such as mining big data sets for connections--is a different sort of workload, and runs best on a different sort of computer.
