In this video from the Appro booth at SC10, Mark Seager from LLNL presents Extending the Hyperion Advanced Cluster Testbed for Data Intensive Applications. Hyperion brings together Dell, Intel, Supermicro, QLogic, Cisco, Mellanox, DDN, Sun, LSI and RedHat to create a large-scale testbed for high-performance computing technologies critical to NNSA’s work to maintain the aging U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile without underground nuclear testing, and industry’s ability to make petaFLOP/s (quadrillion floating operations per second) computing and storage more accessible for commerce, industry and research and development.

Hyperion represents a new way of doing business. Collectively we are building a system none of us could have built individually,” said Mark Seager, LLNL project leader. “The project will advance the state-of-the-art in a cost-effective manner, benefitting both end users, such as the national security labs, and the computing industry, which can expand the market with proven, easy to deploy large-and small-scale Linux clusters.”
