Penguin Computing to Deploy Magma Supercomputer with Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 Processors at LLNL

At SC19, Penguin Computing announced a powerful new supercomputer coming to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Called Magma, the system was procured through the Commodity Technology Systems (CTS-1) contract with the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and is one of the first deployments of Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 series processors with support from CoolIT Systems complete direct liquid cooling and the Intel Omni-Path interconnect.

In this video from SC16, Dan Dowling from Penguin Computing describes the company’s momentum with Nine CTS-1 supercomputers on the TOP500. The systems were procured under NNSA’s Tri-Laboratory Commodity Technology Systems program, or CTS-1, to bolster computing for national security at Los Alamos, Sandia and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories. The resulting deployment of these supercomputing clusters is among world’s largest Open Compute-based installations, a major validation of Penguin Computing’s leadership in Open Compute high-performance computing architecture.
