Finisar (#3608) is a technology leader for fibre optic subsystems and components that enable high-speed data, video and voice communications for high-speed computing, telecommunications, networking, storage, wireless, and cable TV applications. For 25 years, Finisar has provided critical optics technologies to system manufacturers to meet the increasing demands for network bandwidth.

production and includes Intel Cluster Ready certification. In addition, application integration (onboarding) makes the use of HPC easier for experts and more broadly accessible to beginners.

The German Climate Computing Centre (DKRZ) (#329) started its operation as a national service centre for climate research in 1989. Over the past 25 years, the available computing power and volume of archived data has grown a million-fold. Te centre’s mission statement is based on three major goals: maximum computing power, advanced data management, and expert service. German climate research depends

At SC13 in Denver, Finisar will be

showcasing its transceiver and active optical cable portfolio, which is built on Finisar’s experience in high-speed VCSEL technology. Te company will showcase interconnects that transmit data at aggregate rates up to 400 Gbps, based on VCSELs operating in parallel lanes up to 25 Gbps each. Visitors to the booth can learn more about Finisar and how the company is enabling the next generation of supercomputers.

Fujitsu (#2718) offers scalable HPC architectures from x86 Celsius high-end workstations and x86 Primergy industry-standard servers all the way up to the PrimeHPC FX10 supercomputer. Network components, Eternus storage platforms, the HPC Cluster Suite including the HPC Gateway, and consulting and integration services complete the offering. Designed for operational and

workflow-related requirements, the company’s segment and workload-specific integrated HPC offering provides an optimal price/ performance ratio. Ready-to-go delivery of HPC infrastructures guarantees rapid deployment for

on access to the HPC systems at DKRZ. Climate modelling produces enormous amounts of data – at DKRZ more than 25 petabytes are stored. DKRZ provides tools and services to deal with the large data sets. At SC13, DKRZ will present the

visualisations of intricate model experiments. Tese contributed to the fiſth IPCC assessment report published on 27 September 2013. Te extensive climate simulations were carried out by DKRZ and Max- Planck-Institute for Meteorology and occupied one quarter of computing capacity over a period of two years.

Gompute (#416) delivers comprehensive solutions for high- performance computing in-house, in-the-cloud or both. With more than 10 years’ experience working with industrial clients, providing solutions and services to the IT and engineering communities, as well as advisory functions to C-level executives, it delivers a collaborative and highly productive work environment for geographically distributed engineering teams. Combined with Gompute On-

Demand, the company ensures that users have the option to either scale out or completely host their HPC environment, ranging from one to thousands of cores in a Gompute- owned supercomputing centre.


Green Revolution Cooling (#2625) provides data centres with liquid submersion cooling solutions that require low overhead investment and are energy efficient. Te CarnotJet system brings organisations’ PUE down to around 1.05 or less by using 95 per cent less cooling power, 10-25 per cent less server power, and by reducing infrastructure requirements. Te company’s solutions use a non- toxic, non-conductive and long- lasting mineral oil coolant known as GreenDEF Coolant, which has 1,200 times more heat capacity by volume than air and never needs to be replaced.

At this year’s SC13, IBM (#2173) will feature a broad array of solutions that can help organisations accelerate insights and speed results with both technical sessions and space in the Exhibit Hall. Attendees will find solutions from IBM Technical Computing and IBM Platform Computing, as well as a display of past generations of HPC technology in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Supercomputing Conference and Expo. IBM is also participating in

a number of technical sessions, which cover topics in research, government, finance, and big data. For example, the HPC in Finance Workshop – chaired by IBM Research, FountainHead and the University of San Francisco – brings together practitioners, researchers, vendors and scholars from the complementary fields of computational finance and HPC to promote an exchange of ideas, develop common benchmarks and methodologies, discuss future collaborations and determine new research directions. Additionally, the IBM Research

initiative X10 session will focus on a high-performance, high- productivity programming language. To find additional IBM sessions in the Technical Programme, view the programme schedule sc13.

At SC13, the Green

Revolution Cooling will show a cooling solution that is saving organisations millions on power consumption. Visitors to the booth can see why Green Revolution Cooling and the CarnotJet system continue to grow in prominence both internationally and domestically as a benchmark for data centre efficiency.

Sheffield-based Iceotope

(#3918), the next generation liquid cooling specialist, will share the details of its latest

customer deployment, the first Iceotope system to be located outside the UK, as well as providing attendees with an overview of its innovative cooling solution. Iceotope will be represented by

Peter Hopton, the founder and inventor of the technology, as well as Keith Deakin who has engineered that vision into reality. Iceotope’s liquid cooled servers

have the potential to halve the energy usage of supercomputing sites and will allow HPC users much greater freedom when designing, locating and building their facilities. Iceotope’s heat harvesting technology has been designed with research facilities in mind and will provide a compelling alternative to the traditional, air cooled servers presented at the show, the likes of which most HPC facilities are still based.

Mellanox Technologies (#2722) is a leading supplier of end-to- end InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions and services for servers and storage. Mellanox interconnect solutions increase
