Scientists will present a 10-petaflopsny supercomputer
by admin ·
Intel, Dell and Texas Advanced Computing Center will work together to create a supercomputer «Stampede» with a peak capacity of 10 petaflops.
Initial funding of 27.5 million dollars will provide the National Science Foundation in the U.S. government in the hope that the supercomputer will be used by the scientific community for the problems of simulation and data processing.
The basis of the Stampede make up servers Dell Zeus, each of which has on board two 8-core processor Sandy Bridge-EP aka Xeon Processor E5 Family and 32GB of RAM.
Also «Stampede» will be equipped with 128 GPU NVIDIA next-generation remote visualization, 16th Dell servers with terabytes of memory and two rassharennoy each GPU to analyze large amounts of data, as well as high-performance file system Lustre . All components are connected by a network InfiniBand FDR 56Gb / s.
In total, the supercomputer will be equipped with 272TB of RAM and 14PB of storage.
A Linux here despite the fact that «Stampede» will become the most powerful in the U.S. high-performance cluster assembled on family processors x86, and installed it will be just Linux.
