HPC Advisory Council showcases multivendor 120Gb/s network demonstration at ISC'10

1 Jun 2010 Hamburg - The HPC Advisory Council, an organisation for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, achieves the largest demonstration of the industry's fastest network during the ISC'10 conference in Hamburg, Germany. The 120Gb/s InfiniBand demonstration connects participating exhibitors on the ISC'10 showroom floor for demonstrating leading solutions and technologies for high-speed visualization. The demo sheds light on the 4500-year-old Khufu Pyramid mystery using a real-time, 3D simulation. A small cluster recreates the Kheops construction site, exactly as it was 4500 years ago. The demo merges real and virtual worlds via an interactive 3D experience on the ISC10 show floor.

The following HPC Council member organisations have contributed and are participating in the 120Gb/s InfiniBand ISCnet demonstration: AMD, Avago, Corning Cables Systems, Dell, Emcore, Finisar, Luxtera, Mellanox, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Scalable Graphics, Tyco, and Zarlink.

In addition, the HPC Advisory Council announced the addition of "Maia" to its High-Performance Center. The Maia cluster, based on Dell PowerEdge M610, Intel Xeon X5670 processors and Mellanox ConnectX-2 40Gb/s InfiniBand adapters and IS5000 switches, is now available through the Council's High-Performance Center.

The new system enriches the HPC Advisory Council High-Performance Center with next generation Intel processors and CORE-Direct MPI collectives offload capability from Mellanox Technologies, allowing Council members to further extend application research, development and best practices to new areas. The new system, located in Sunnyvale, California, provides local and remote access for users. Remote access can be requested at http://www.hpcadvisorycouncil.com/cluster_center.php

"The HPC Advisory Council is committed to furthering HPC outreach and enhancing education through various activities such as demonstrations that showcase the next generation of HPC technologies and usage", stated Gilad Shainer, HPC Advisory Council Chairman. "With the main goal of creating best practices within compute-intensive market segments, the new Maia cluster from Intel and Dell will enable end-users to benchmark their applications on industry-standard HPC environments. Furthermore, the ISCnet demonstration provides a great opportunity for the ISC'10 attendees to see the latest clustering technologies and new capabilities for high visualization rendering applications."

The HPC Advisory Council High-Performance Center provides a unique ability to access the latest systems, CPU, and networking technologies, even before it reaches the public availability. Its six systems provide a comprehensive development testing and tuning environment for various applications and environments.
