DALLAS, Nov. 14, 2018 — Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, has announced a collaborative effort with Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to develop large scale, mission centric computing infrastructure. The organizations will focus on leveraging Mellanox In-Network Computing acceleration engines to enable data discovery at scale for the lab’s current and next generation applications. The collaborative development will be done under the Efficient Mission Centric Computing Consortium (EMC3), centered at LANL’s Ultra-Scale Systems Research Center (USRC). The EMC3 consortium’s mission is to investigate efficient ultra-scale computing and networking architectures, applications and environments, in order to provide the most efficient infrastructure needed for the US Industry and national security.
“Los Alamos’s relationship with Mellanox goes back a decade or more. This close collaboration with EMC3 is expected to start bearing performance results in the near and longer terms,” said Gary Grider, Division Director for HPC Computing at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
“We are designing supercomputer systems today that will be deployed in the coming decade. These systems will enable us to expand and refine our research capabilities to enhance data discoveries and increase our overall efficiencies in our mission applications,” said Stephen Poole, Chief Architect for Computing at Los Alamos National Laboratory. “Intelligent interconnect technologies and the ability to leverage the network components as an integral part of the ultra-scale, distributed processing infrastructure are going to be key components for maintaining our national leadership.”
“In-Network Computing technologies are critical to analyze the exponential growth of data to reach data discoveries in a scalable, efficient, secure and real time manner,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “We are excited about the collaboration opportunities and development results of the integrated team members from LANL and Mellanox.”
