Today Russia’s RSC Group announced that the company has received the elite HPC Data Center Specialist partner status from Intel Corporation, confirming the very high level competence of company’s employees and its business experience in development and deployment of HPC solutions based on Intel server products. According to RSC, only 12 companies in the EMEA region have received such recognition while only 35 Intel partners have received it worldwide.
RSC also participates in Intel Technology Provider Program at Platinum level and Intel Fabric Builders Program.
At ISC 2016, RSC demonstrated a new generation of its high performance, scalable and energy-efficient RSC Tornado solution with direct liquid cooling based on the newest multi-core Intel Xeon Phi 7200 processor (previously code named as Knights Landing). The new RSC solution has improved footprint and computing density (by 2x up to 528 Tflops per cabinet), high energy efficiency, and provides stable operation of computing nodes in “hot water” mode at +63 °С cooling agent temperature at node inputs.
RSC Tornado cluster solution can also be implemented with Intel Xeon E5- 2600 v4 server processors (including high-end model Intel Xeon E5-2699 v4) providing high computing density – 237 Teraflops in a standard 42U (80x80x200 cm) cabinet.
Russian customers have used solutions based on RSC Tornado and RSC PetaStream supercomputer architectures with liquid cooling since 2009 and 2013 accordingly. These solutions are installed and actively used for modeling and calculation of a broad range of scientific, research and industrial tasks by the St. Petersburg Polytechnic University named after Peter the Great (SPbPU), Joint Supercomputer Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (JSCC RAS), South Ural State University (SUSU), Moscow Physics and Technology Institute (MIPT), Russian Weather Forecast Agency (Roshydromet) and other customers from different vertical industries.
