Mellanox and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory announce joint collaboration to design exascale system

20 Jun 2016 Frankfurt - Mellanox Technologies has signed a joint technology collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to architect, design and explore technologies for future Exascale platforms. The agreement will explore the advanced capabilities of Mellanox interconnect technology while focusing on a new generation of in-network computing architecture and the laboratory application requirements. This collaboration will also enable the DOE lab, through its Center for Advanced Technology Evaluation - known as CENATE, and Mellanox to effectively explore new software and hardware synergies that can drive high performance computing to the next level.

"Mellanox has a long and successful history of developing industry-leading technology that enables the world fastest supercomputers", stated Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox. "Our collaboration with PNNL will result in enabling an Exascale-grade system and provide the most efficient platform to enhance research and future product development."

Today, scalable compute and storage systems suffer from data bottlenecks that limit research, product development and constrain application services. The Mellanox PNNL collaboration includes guiding the development of an InfiniBand-based Exascale system to support the DOE's research needs as well as initiatives to develop, advance and establish critical new technologies that promote standards enabling and supporting the thousand-fold increase in performance required to introduce an Exaflop-capable system.
