The University of Tokyo selects Mellanox EDR InfiniBand to accelerate its newest supercomputer

21 Jul 2016 Sunnyvale, Yokneam - Mellanox Technologies Ltd.'s Switch-IB 2 EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand Switch systems and ConnectX-4 adapters have been chosen by the Information Technology Center at the University of Tokyo to accelerate its new supercomputer for computational science, engineering by large-scale simulations, and data analysis.

"Mellanox's smart Switch-IB 2 switches enable the University of Tokyo to leverage new in-network computing capabilities, allowing data algorithms to be managed and executed by the network devices", stated Gilad Shainer, vice president, marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "EDR 100G InfiniBand offers world-leading performance, scalability and efficiency enabling the University of Tokyo to be at the forefront of research, and scientific discovery."

"We are pleased to have installed Mellanox's InfiniBand high-performance solutions to drive our new integrated supercomputer system", stated Professor Hiroshi Nakamura, Director of the Information Technology Center, The University of Tokyo. "Our new system is key to advancing ongoing research and expanding the exciting work being carried out that is leveraging computational science and engineering, computer science, data analysis, and machine learning."

The TOP500 supercomputer list has evolved to include both high-performance computing systems as well as Cloud and Web2.0 Hyperscale infrastructures, mainly from the Asia-Pacific region. For the high-performance computing systems on the list, InfiniBand continues to demonstrate its technology leadership accelerating 70 percent of the systems. Overall, InfiniBand connects 41.2 percent of the TOP500 systems.

Mellanox InfiniBand adapters provide the highest performing interconnect solution for High-Performance Computing, Enterprise Data Centers, Web 2.0, Cloud Computing, and embedded environments. Mellanox's Switch-IB 2 EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand switches, the world's first smart switches, enable in-network computing through the Co-Design SHArP - Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation Protocol - technology. Switch-IB 2 delivers the highest fabric performance available in the market with up to 7Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth, 90ns port-to-port latency and 195 million messages per second per port.

The Information Technology Center at the University of Tokyo is one of Japan's premiere research and educational institutions, armed with the mission of building, and operating large computer systems. It serves as the core institute of the Joint Usage/Research Center for Interdisciplinary Large-scale Information Infrastructures (JHPCN); a group of supercomputer centres across eight leading universities. The new supercomputer will also serve as a test environment for a future supercomputer system that will be tasked with advancing research in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other multifaceted fields of study.
