ISC’12 show preview

Head to Hamburg

On 17 June 2012, the International Supercomputing Conference will return to Hamburg. Some of the 175 exhibitors tell us what awaits attendees this year

Acer Technical Computing Solutions (Booth #320) will present the next generation of server systems designed for high- performance computing. Tese systems feature a balance of density, performance and breadth of integration to fit any type of deployment and research need. Tough relatively new to the market, Acer brings to bear strategic partners from every level of the industry; from compute to networks, from management to deployment. Te company’s strategic partners and industry knowledge place it in a position to deliver powerful solutions to customers. Featured at ISC’12, Acer and Taiwan’s

National Center for High-Performance Computing will demonstrate an integrated, 100 per cent Cuda-designed real-time CFD rendering soſtware to able educators and researches alike to better interact with HPC jobs.

TeAlcatel-Lucent (#122) 400G Photonic Service Engine (PSE) is the first-ever commercially available electro-optics chip capable of driving traffic up to 400 gigabits per second (Gb/s). Versatile and scalable, it dramatically boosts the performance of 100G networks today – and lays the foundation for 400G transport down the road. Built on in-house Bell Labs research

and extensive field experience with 100G deployments, the 400G PSE is designed specifically for the company’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch. It delivers four times the speed of 100G and increases the capacity of

Altair’s PBS Professional, a commercial-

grade HPC workload management and job scheduling solution, fully supports the latest GPGPU systems. To optimally handle GPGPUs, it is able to capture the physical

today’s transport networks, while improving efficiency and better addressing the massive growth of broadband traffic. Visit booth #122 to learn how Alcatel-Lucent’s high-leverage connections support massive data transport between high- performance supercomputers.

Altair (#613) provides cloud computing tools and applications to make high-performance computing run faster, simpler and smarter. It creates HPC solvers and simulation applications, delivers HPC management tools and uses HPC applications and tools to design, strengthen and lightweight products.

relationships between GPGPUs and their closely coupled CPUs. Tis ensures that when physical resources are being assigned to jobs, the closest GPGPUs and CPUs are chosen, which helps reduce execution time by reducing latency between components.

Altair’s Compute Manager is a web-based

job submission and management portal that is application-aware, enabling end users to focus on the data and applications they wish to run. Trough this web portal, users can upload input data files, choose the application and version, and then submit the job. Once the job is running, the user can remotely access any intermediate results files being generated to ensure the results are converging.

Appro (Whisper Suite W20) is a leading provider of supercomputing solutions and will be participating at the ISC’12 conference’s Birds of a Feather presentation on Wednesday, 20 June 2012. In this presentation, visitors will learn about the Appro and Sandia National Laboratories collaboration to develop a first-of-a-kind experimental cluster using the Intel Many Integrated Core Architecture (Intel MIC) and the Appro Xtreme-X supercomputer architecture. Attendees can explore this new system based

on the Intel’s Knights Ferry (KNF) soſtware development platform and learn how it will
