Mellanox's EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand accelerates the largest National Institute of Health supercomputer

5 Dec 2016 Sunnyvale, Yokneam - NIH, the U.S. National Institute of Health's Center for Information Technology, has selected Mellanox 100G EDR InfiniBand solutions to accelerate its 'Biowulf' data centre, the largest data centre at NIH. The project is a result of a collaborative effort between Mellanox, CSRA Inc., DataDirect Networks (DDN), and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).

The Biowulf cluster is NIH's core HPC facility, with more than 55,000 cores. More than 600 users from 24 NIH institutes and centres will leverage the new supercomputer to enhance their computationally intensive research.

"The Biowulf cluster, utilizing Mellanox's 100Gb/s EDR InfiniBand smart interconnect solutions, supports a wide range of computational applications for genomics, molecular and structural biology, mathematical, graphical and image analysis, so that researchers at NIH can expedite their mission-critical projects", stated Dale D'Alessio, CEO Mellanox Federal Systems. "Mellanox Federal Systems is proud to be a member of the team implementing this system as we all work together to advance the speed at which NIH can execute scientific research."

Mellanox Federal Systems is providing both the core InfiniBand switching and InfiniBand-to-Ethernet gateways, allowing for seamless integration with legacy computing resources.
