ISC’12 show preview

Gompute (#560) will show the latest release of the Gompute soſtware stack and the Gompute on-demand service. Attendees will gain insight into how Gompute soſtware is enabling effective scientific and technical computing for organisations, regardless of whether resources are located inside a WAN, or if users want a pure hosted environment or a hybrid model to support peak demands in projects. Te company delivers servers, storage, parallel file systems, low-latency interconnect, remote 2/3D hardware accelerated desktops, simulation data management, queue systems, pre-integrated applications coupled to license managers, and account and billing of multiple teams. Some of the key topics will be remote visualisation and fast and high resolution. Gompute is a Gridcore company.

Gridcore delivers turnkey solutions for high-performance computing, storage and high availability systems. Gridcore has its headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden, subsidiaries in Germany and USA, and sales organisations in Norway and Te Netherlands.

NAG (#820) has proven experience in developing and supporting production-class HPC applications, both at the supercomputer level and at the mass market level of technical computing. NAG’s strength is the breadth and depth of computational expertise available, with its staff possessing experience as HPC end users (across industry, defence and academia), HPC service providers and soſtware developers. Products on show at ISC’12 include the NAG Library for SMP and Multi-Core. Tis numerical algorithm library contains more than 1,700 algorithms optimised for HPC computing.

Megware (#155) is a German developer and vendor of high-performance computing solutions. Te company’s focus is on customer-oriented, tailor- made and innovative system solutions and services. At ISC´12, Megware will showcase its in-house developments like the hot water direct cooling solution,

ColdCon. ColdCon is adapted to Intel and AMD processors and is suitable for high packaging densities due to the Megware SlashEight blade system. Large-scale savings of energy can be achieved by means of free re-cooling and by reusing the waste heat produced.

applications in HPC clusters and clouds’, on Tuesday, 19 June at 15:15 at booth #001. At 9:00 in Hall C2.1 on Wednesday morning,

Numascale (#213) enables users to build shared memory systems for the price of a cluster. Te adapters are used with standard servers and connect to the AMD HyperTransport. Tis provides cache coherent shared memory totally transparent to the soſtware, while the system runs a standard unchanged operating system. Te distributed switching allows users to build the system in 3D Torus topology and up to 256TB of memory.

In addition to numerical soſtware, NAG can

help businesses with services and consulting, promising high quality and best performance. Its well-established services aid adoption of new hardware or soſtware technologies, the achievement of step changes in performance and capability, and the development and use of soſtware with confidence. NAG provides impartial expert advice and can offer independent technology evaluation, strategy and service planning, and procurement advice.


Platform Computing (#240), an IBM Company, is a leader in cluster, grid and HPC cloud management soſtware, and a long-standing sponsor of the International Supercomputing Conference. For more than 20 years, the company’s workload and resource management solutions have delivered optimised IT infrastructures, ease of management and lower costs for enterprise, HPC and technical computing clients. Platform Computing will be hosting a series

of sessions at this year’s conference, starting with an exhibitor forum presentation, ‘Web-enabling

director of product management, HPC Products, Bill McMillan, and WW Architect, Luigi Brochard, will discuss how workload management can drive data centre efficiency through automated power management. At the same time in Hall C2.2, product manager Christopher Porter will be weighing up the benefits of HPC applications in the cloud, asking the question: ‘To burst or not to burst?’

Q-Leap Networks (#924) will showcase Qlustar, a new contender in the field of public HPC cluster operating systems. Qlustar puts an end to node provisioning and takes the concern out of installing Linux HPC Clusters. It is the first professional Ubuntu/ Debian-based HPC solution that is real-life proven and designed to scale from small departmental clusters to multi-thousand node supercomputers. Its core is a lightweight modular compute-

node Kernel that is generated using a 3rd generation OS image generator. Te latter ensures that OS images contain the exact minimum of programs and files needed for the desired functionality. Images are modular, composed of a core and optional modules for additional functionality. Images run completely in RAM and typically have a size of approx. 100- 150MB, installed as regular OS packages.
