Video: Deploying Marvell’s ThunderX2 at Scale in HPC Market

In this video from the DDN booth at SC18, Larry Wikelius from Marvell presents: Deploying Marvell’s ThunderX2 at Scale in HPC Market.

The ThunderX2 product family is the company’s second-generation 64-bit ARMv8-A server processor SoCs for datacenter, cloud and high-performance computing (HPC) applications. The family integrates fully out-of-order, high-performance custom cores supporting single- and dual-socket configurations. ThunderX2 is optimized to drive high computational performance delivering outstanding memory bandwidth and memory capacity. The new line of ThunderX2 processors includes multiple workload optimized SKUs for both scale up and scale out applications and is fully compliant with ARMv8-A architecture specifications as well as the ARM Server Base System Architecture and ARM Server Base Boot Requirements standards.

With increasing HPC end user deployments, Marvell has directly delivered key open source software contributions that are particularly targeted for compute-specific applications, such as optimizations for GCC, LLVM, and OpenBLAS. Marvell continues to actively contribute to the upstream kernel.org enablement for ThunderX2 that supports close collaboration with leading Linux OS partners: Canonical, Red Hat, and SUSE.  OpenHPC is a growing community for software and best practices that Cavium has actively supported with reference systems for ARM based build, test, and validation activities. Building on the open source software that OpenHPC is delivering, many commercial partners are expanding their commercial support for ThunderX2.
