Adaptive Computing Achieves Record High Throughput with Supermicro Systems

Today Adaptive Computing announces it has set a new record in High Throughput Computing (HTC) in collaboration with Supermicro, a leader in high-performance green computing solutions. Supermicro SuperServers, custom optimized for Nitro, the new high throughput resource manager from Adaptive Computing, were able to launch up to 530 tasks per second per core on Supermicro based low latency UP SuperServer and over 17,600 tasks per second on its 4-Way based SuperServer. This record-breaking throughput can accelerate financial risk analysis, EDA regression tests, life sciences research, and other data analysis-driven projects. It can expedite the process of gaining critical insights, thereby delivering products and services to market faster.

Power, Cooling and Hardware Considerations for Next-Gen Datacenter & HPC

Hardware designs should utilize energy efficient components, airflow optimization techniques, and new cooling techniques to address these challenges. Supermicro provides the largest selection of next geneation x86 based Server solutions to achieve the right balance between design, efficiency, performance, and cost.

Numascale Teams with Supermicro & AMD for Large Shared Memory System

Last week at SC15, Numascale announced the successful installation of a large shared memory Numascale/Supermicro/AMD system at a customer datacenter facility in North America. The system is the first part of a large cloud computing facility for analytics and simulation of sensor data combined with historical data. “The Numascale system, installed over the last two weeks, consists of 108 Supermicro 1U servers connected in a 3D torus with NumaConnect, using three cabinets with 36 servers apiece in a 6x6x3 topology. Each server has 48 cores in three AMD Opteron 6386 CPUs and 192 GBytes memory, providing a single system image and 20.7 TBytes to all 5184 cores. The system was designed to meet user demand for “very large memory” hardware solutions running a standard single image Linux OS on commodity x86 based servers.”
