The US Department of Energy (DoE) has boosted its high-speed research communications network by extending 100G connectivity across the Atlantic.
“SURF allows you to set up a light path: a direct, secure, and fast connection between 2 points, for example between a researcher in the Netherlands and a telescope in China. This offers unique, worldwide possibilities, for example for more efficient research, for sharing facilities or large datasets, or for creating backups.”
“Today’s High Performance Computing environments are more demanding than ever. To meet the needs of complex simulations and ever-increasing massive workloads, HPC clusters need to support faster, high core count processors, coprocessors, and higher node count clusters. Performance is key … but at what cost? In this webinar, you will learn about the factors that drive fabric performance and their impact on your investment in HPC; How the fabric is a key component of your overall HPC solution; and performance and price comparisons of some of the fabric choices available to you today.”
Today Mellanox announced that the National Supercomputer Centre at Linköping University (NSC Sweden) and Meteo France have selected the company’s FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solutions for mission critical, high-performance computing applications.
