Coral and Intel’s Scalable System Framework – The Path to Exascale

mark

“HPC has reached an inflection point with the convergence of traditional high performance computing and the emerging world of Big Data analytics. Intel’s HPC Scalable System Framework enables an unprecedented level of system balance, performance, and scalability necessary to meet the demands of bot compute- and data-intensive workloads, today and well into the future.”

Nested Parallelism

The benefits of nested parallelism on highly threaded applications can be determined and quantified. With the number of cores in both the host CPU (Intel Xeon) and the coprocessor (Intel Xeon Phi) continues to increase, much thought must be given to minimizing the thread overhead when many threads need to be synchronized, as well as the memory access for each processor (core). Tasks that can be spread across an entire system to exploit the algorithm’s parallelism, should be mapped to the NUMA node to make them more efficient.

“In April 2015, 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.”

In this video, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the newly announced 3D XPoint technology from Intel and Micron. “3D XPoint ushers in a new class of non-volatile memory that significantly reduces latencies, allowing much more data to be stored close to the processor and accessed at speeds previously impossible for non-volatile storage.”

Intel and Micron Announce 3D XPoint Non-Volatile Memory

3D Xpoint™ technology is up to 1000x faster than NAND and an individual die can store 128Gb of data.

Today Intel Corporation and Micron Technology unveiled 3D XPoint technology, a non-volatile memory that has the potential to revolutionize any device, application or service that benefits from fast access to large sets of data. Now in production, 3D XPoint technology is a major breakthrough in memory process technology and the first new memory category since the introduction of NAND flash in 1989.

DDN Sets World Record STAC Performance
