COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb. 7 – Emulex Corporation today announced the findings of a new Demartek lab evaluation that reveals Emulex LightPulse 16Gb Fibre Channel (16GFC) LPe16000B Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) outperform those of its nearest competitor in throughput, CPU efficiency, reliability and power efficiency. Demartek is an independent research firm specializing in real-world, hands-on testing and analysis. Based on these tests, the report finds that Emulex LPe16000B 16GFC HBAs are the optimal choice for servers running server virtualization, email, transactional database and data warehouse workloads.
"The Demartek testing results have proven once again that Emulex LPe16000B HBAs are the fastest, most reliable and efficient adapters available today," said Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing and corporate development, Emulex. "We strive to provide the most accurate, extensive performance data on all of our adapters and solutions to ensure customers are well-informed when making their decisions. Emulex 16GFC adapters are absolutely the best choice for customers worldwide deploying virtualization, database and cloud environments."
The Demartek lab testing compared the Emulex LPe16000B HBAs to its nearest competitor's currently shipping 16GFC HBAs and found the following results:
"This lab evaluation demonstrated the performance advantages of Emulex LPe16000B HBAs, which are currently available to customers today, with results that far surpass the performance of its nearest competitor's 16GFC HBA," said Dennis Martin , founder and president, Demartek. "Such performance advantages offer significant benefits for most enterprise applications, including databases, business intelligence, virtualization and private clouds, backup, and many workloads with flash acceleration. Emulex LPe16000B HBAs are an ideal choice for these customers now, and as they continue to build out their next-generation data centers."

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.
