With Innovative Cooling, New HP Apollo Systems are Tailor-Made for HPC

Apollo_8000_system_multi_FT_tcm245_1703099_tcm245_1697206_tcm245-1703099

This week HP rolled out a new lineup of density-optimized servers with innovative cooling technology. Tailor-made for the HPC market, the Apollo Series combines a modular design with innovative power distribution and air- and liquid-cooling techniques for extreme performance at rack scale, providing up to four times more performance per square foot than standard rack servers.

Bull to Build Petaflop Supercomputer for DKRZ

Bull Logo

Today the German computing center for climate research (DKRZ) announced a contract with Bull for the delivery of a petaflop supercomputer. With 45 petabytes of Lustre storage based on Xyratex ClusterStor technology, the system will run one of the largest files systems in the world.

Interview: NSU to Boost Research with “Megalodon” IBM Supercomputer

ibm_guys

“The team at the Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences wanted to give the computer a nickname – a name that would not only convey the super computer’s enormity in terms of size; but a name that would definitively link the super computer to NSU. Our mascot is the “shark” and the Megalodon, is the largest prehistoric shark known to man.”

Interview: Calyos 2-Phase Cooling for Electronic Components in HPC

07d22a7

“Thanks to the latent heat physical properties and its pumpless capillary structure, Calyos advanced 2-Phase cooling solutions will help the HPC world by reducing the cooling costs while significantly increasing power densities.”

NREL’s Peregrine: HP’s Warm Water Cooled HPC Platform

221dc2d

Nicholas Dube from HP presented this talk at the Adaptive Computing booth at SC13. “The ESIF data center is designed to achieve an annualized average power usage effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.06 or better. Going beyond traditional PUE measurements, the NREL HPC Data Center is using warm-water liquid cooling for its high-power computer components, then capturing and reusing that waste heat as the primary heat source in the ESIF offices and laboratory space.”

Download the slides (PDF) or check out more talks at our HPC User Forum Video Gallery. At ISC’13, RSC announced that the company has leveraged Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors to nab the best […]

New NREL Datacenter Tops in Petascale Energy Efficiency

One of the missions of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is to advance renewable energy research. So when it came time to build their new HPC datacenter, they decided to “walk the talk” and push the limits of energy-efficient supercomputing. Well, so far, so good. With the first petascale system to use warm-water liquid […]

NETL's New SGI Super Sets the Bar for Energy Efficiency

The Office of Fossil Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has deployed a new SGI ICE Cube Air modular data center with extreme energy efficiency. Currently ranked at #55 on the TOP500, the system is being used for energy research at various scales ranging from molecules, to devices, to entire power plants and natural fuel […]

Intel Completes Testing of CarnotJet Submersion Cooling

Intel has endorsed Green Revolution Cooling’s CarnotJet submersion cooling system following one year of testing. Intel found that submerged servers used 7 per cent less energy at platform level due to removal of server fans and reduction of leakage currents in mineral oil coolant, and reported a cooling PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) of 1.02-1.03, which […]

Asetek Showcses RackCDU Liquid Cooled 48U HPC Cluster at SC12

Asetek is showcasing a remarkable new liquid-cooled HPC cluster at SC12 with extreme power efficiency, performance and density. In a standard rack, the system packs in 23 2U 4-node Intel H2216WPJR servers, each with dual Xeon E5 2690 CPUs providing. Under load, the fully populated rack consumes 37kW of power that is converted into heat. It would […]
