“We’re excited to collaborate with Lenovo in their new Beijing Center for HPC, cloud and data analytics,” said Charles Wuischpard, vice president and general manager of HPC Platform Group at Intel. “As with the current Innovation Center in Germany, the new center in Beijing gives clients early access to a broad range of ever-advancing technology and scale, including full support of the Intel Scalable System Framework — allowing users of all sizes to experience its benefit.”
At SC15, Lenovo announced a brand new state-of-the-art Enterprise Innovation Center (EIC) in Beijing will open in early 2016. Lenovo also announced an expanded relationship with Barcelona Supercomputing Centre and a new partner in EIC projects, the University of Oxford. Additionally, Lenovo is unveiling multiple new initiatives with Intel under the Intel Scalable System Framework, focused on future high-performance computing system design and optimization. Lenovo is also a founding member of OpenHPC which aims to bring open-source economics to HPC users.
Partnering for Future HPC Capabilities
In an effort to increase value across the entire stack and address a wide range of data analysis, machine learning and visualization workloads customers are needing, Lenovo is announcing products based on the Intel Scalable System Framework. Early next year, we will introduce systems using next-generation Intel Xeon and Intel Xeon Phi processors, Intel OmniPath Architecture and the Intel Enterprise Edition of Lustre software to serve these needs. Customers can already test drive Intel OmniPath Architecture and Intel solutions for Lustre in the Stuttgart EIC and we plan to upgrade the cluster to next-generation Intel Xeon processors as soon as they become available.
Lenovo’s enterprise strategy is built on the delivery of open, flexible and innovative value and we will continue to challenge the envelopes of high performance computing. Enhancing our Innovation Center capacity and forging close partnerships with industry leaders will help us deliver ever better high performance computing to customers around the world.” Said Brian Connors, general manager HPC and vice president, Strategic Alliances and Business Development, Enterprise Business Group, Lenovo.
