The International Supercomputing Conference will be returning to Hamburg on 19 June 2011. We present a few highlights of what awaits those heading to Germany

At ISC 2011, AMD will demonstrate its upcoming 16-core processor codenamed ‘Interlago’ and showcase its line of AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors designed for performance two-way and four-way HPC servers. The AMD Opteron 4100 Series processors designed for one- and two-way products for HPC Cloud Computing and Web 2.0 deployments will also be on display. In addition to AMD’s latest HPC processor

products, the company will showcase some of the highest performing GPGPU technologies. AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) technology for HPC is a set of advanced hardware and software technologies that enable AMD GPUs to work in concert with AMD Opteron processors to help accelerate workloads beyond traditional graphics and video processing. The AMD FirePro and AMD FireStream product lines will also be on display.

As a Platinum sponsor, Bull has a strong presence at ISC’11. The company will be exhibiting its complete and newly- upgraded family of servers designed for extreme computing. The bullx blade system is an ultra-concentrated and modular system that has up to 18 compute blades in a 7U chassis that can indifferently house standard compute blades or accelerated blades, or a mix of both. Its interconnect is sized so that it can be part of a totally non-blocking architecture. The bullx supernodes are SMP systems that offer massive shared memory. Bull extreme computing systems are at the heart of three petascale supersystems.


ET International (ETI) will showcase its fl agship SWift Adaptive Runtime Machine (SWARM) software for many-core and

hybrid systems, which enables advanced parallel application development. In addition to showcasing its custom engineering expertise in many-core software technology and associated benchmarking and consulting services, ETI will demonstrate SWARM’s many-core programming environment on Adapteva’s Epiphany multi-core processor architecture at ETI booth 400-5, and proven near-peak performance on advanced HPC systems at Intel booths 530 and 801. ETI vice president of R&D, Rishi Khan,

will also deliver the Birds of a Feather presentation ‘Runtime Systems for Hybrid Many-core Systems’ in session six on Tuesday 21 June from 4pm to 4.45pm in Hall C2.2, and at the Start-up Forum on Wednesday 22 June from 12.40pm to 1pm at booth 900 in the exhibition hall.

The European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) is a federation of resource providers set up

to enable access to computing resources for European scientists and researchers from all fi elds of science, from high-energy physics to humanities. This is essential to solve the big questions facing science today, and in the decades to come. The infrastructure is managed by, an organisation established in February 2010 in Amsterdam to coordinate the EGI on behalf of its participants: National Grid Initiatives (NGIs) and European Intergovernmental

Research Organisations (EIROs). EGI-InSPIRE (EGI-Integrated

Sustainable Pan-European Infrastructure for Research in Europe) is a four-year project, coordinated by, helping to establish EGI as a sustainable, reliable e-Infrastructure that can support researchers’ needs for large-scale data analysis. EGI-InSPIRE is a collaborative effort involving 50 partners in over 40 countries.

The Eurotech HPC division has been developing HPC solutions for more than 10 years, and at ISC’11, Eurotech will display items from the Aurora product line; namely the Aurora cluster for datacenters and the new version of the Dura Mater, the portable ruggedised supercomputer. The Aurora datacenter solutions feature high computational power, energy effi ciency and liquid cooling. Aurora Dura Mater makes supercomputing pervasive, extending the HPC portability to anywhere, even the harshest environments. During the show, Eurotech will hold a

30-minute session on ‘the Aurora 3D Torus network and its applications’ at the Exhibitor Forum. The company will also organise a BoF on ‘Green HPC and sustainability’ Tuesday 21 June between 2.30pm and 4.45 pm in Hall C2.2. Eurotech will be at booth 720.
