SC13 preview

data centre efficiency by providing the highest throughput and lowest latency, delivering data faster to applications and unlocking system performance capability. Mellanox offers a choice of fast

interconnect products: adapters, switches, soſtware, cables and silicon that accelerate application runtime and maximise business results for a wide range of markets including high-performance computing, enterprise data centres, Web 2.0, cloud, storage and financial services.

Motivair (#318) will be showing its Chilled Door HPC rack cooling system at SC13. Designed to remove 100 per cent of server heat at its source, the Chilled Door is a non- invasive and simple addition to new

or retrofit HPC rack applications, with no direct liquid contact. It removes >45kW from any rack, using up to 65F chilled water for condensate-free operation, while a sealed interface frame facilitates accurate fit to any standard or custom rack. Generous, low power EC fan

capacity and an overriding fan pressure switch always ensure safe operation under any operating mode. Enhanced PLC soſtware provides remote communication via BACnet LON or Modbus. Furthermore, a leak prevention system sets the alarm, isolates the Chilled Door from the water supply and increases the fan speed. Any alarm condition switches the door- size blue LED to red for instant recognition.

NASA’s exhibit (#882) will highlight science and engineering results enabled using the agency’s world- class supercomputing resources. NASA will showcase cutting-edge work in aeronautics, Earth science,

human space exploration, and study of the universe. Tis year’s talks and demonstrations will reveal some of the innovative technologies behind projects such as the Curiosity rover’s first year on Mars; designing cleaner, quieter aircraſt; advancing global climate research and technologies; developing next-generation space vehicles and launch environments; understanding astrophysical phenomena; and approaches to data-intensive and quantum computing. Attendees can stop by the booth to experience spectacular scientific visualisations displayed on a state-of-the art 11-foot hyperwall.

Numascale (#2505) is a leader in interconnect technology development with its low-cost scalable shared memory adapter for commodity servers. Numascale is the first company to develop and commercialise an interconnect with the ability to build scalable, high- performance clusters with cache coherent shared memory. Te NumaConnect SMP

adapters enable the whole cluster to be utilised as one single system running one instance of the operating system. Te coherent cache reduces latency to remote memory and provides cache coherency on a cache line level. Tis caching scheme aligns perfectly with how the higher level caching in the system utilises standard optimisations in system soſtware. Utilising directory-based caching, systems are scalable from two to thousands of servers connected using 2D or 3D torus topologies and up to 256TB of memory. At SC13, Numascale will feature an installation with 1,728 cores and 4.6TB of memory.

The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) (#1716) delivers trusted numerical computing soſtware and high-performance computing services. NAG experts work closely with researchers in academia and industry to create powerful, accurate and flexible soſtware which is relied upon
