Video: There and Back Again – The Battle of Lustre at LANL

lanl

“A little over a year ago LANL’s HPC Division purchased and fielded our first general purpose InfiniBand-based Lustre parallel file system. This new Lustre deployment, being the first of several similar planned deployments, gave us the opportunity to design a new storage backbone from the ground up and to gain in depth experience with and insight into Lustre technology in order to facilitate the installment and configuration of future systems.”

“The second generation of SDSC’s Data Oasis Lustre storage is coming online to support Comet, a new XSEDE cluster targeted at the long tail of science. The servers have been designed with Lustre on ZFS in mind, and also update the network to use bonded 40GbE interfaces. The raw storage totals 7.7 PB and are again based on commodity hardware provided by Aeon Computing, maintaining our focus on cost.”

Video: Cray’s Storage History and Outlook – Lustre+

Jason Goodman

In this video from LUG 2015 in Denver, Jason Goodman from Cray presents: Cray’s Storage History and Outlook – Lustre+. “As a leader in open systems and parallel file systems, Cray builds on open source Lustre to unlock any industry-standard x86 Linux compute cluster using InfiniBand or 10/40 GbE utilizing proven Cray storage architectures.”

In this video, Steve Simms from Indiana University kicks off LUG 2015 with a talk on Lustre 101. “Lustre is a mature and stable file system that through its developers has consistently been able to respond to the needs of organizations that require high performance throughput and expanding capacity.”

A Closer Look at Intel’s Coral Supercomputers Coming to Argonne

coral

This morning Intel and the U.S. Department of Energy announced a $200 million supercomputing investment coming to Argonne National Laboratory. As the third of three Coral supercomputer procurements, the deal will comprise an 8.5 Petaflop “Theta” system based on Knights Landing in 2016 and a much larger 180 Petaflop “Aurora” supercomputer in 2018. Intel will be the prime contractor on the deal, with sub-contractor Cray building the actual supercomputers.

Intel to Deliver Nation’s Most Powerful Supercomputer at Argonne

Congressman Dan Lipinski

Today Intel announced that the company will deliver two next-generation supercomputers to Argonne National Laboratory. “The contract is part of the DOE’s multimillion dollar initiative to build state-of-the-art supercomputers at Argonne, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories that will be five to seven times more powerful than today’s top supercomputers.”
