Co-creator of Gordon supercomputer suffers fatal heart attack.
The San Diego Supercomputing Center ‘Gordon’ supercomputer was built specifically for handling large data-intensive compute tasks. This cluster uses a unique dual-rail 3D Torus topology using hardware and software provided by Mellanox Technologies. The successful deployment of this cluster highlights the flexible topology options that are available today over InfiniBand high-speed interconnect.<br />
Gordon, the largest flash memory-based computer on the planet, was officially launched at a ceremony that took place on Monday at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC). Two years in the making, and backed by a $20 million Track 2 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Gordon represents the first really big purpose-built supercomputer for data-intensive applications.
