Russian RSC Group deploys ‘hot water’ cooled supercomputer at JINR

Today the RSC Group from Russia announced the deployment of the world first 100% ‘hot water’ liquid cooled supercomputer at Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna. “It’s great to note that we launch the new heterogeneous supercomputer named after professor Govorun at JINR’s Information Technology Laboratory in the year of 60th anniversary of commissioning of the first Ural-1 supercomputer at our institute in 1958. Our scientists and research groups now have a powerful and modern tool that will greatly accelerate theoretical and experimental research of nuclear physics and condensed matter physics,” – said Vladimir Vasilyevich Korenkov, Director of the Information Technology Laboratory of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research.

Russian RSC Group Joins the Intel Select Solutions for HPC Program

Last week at SC17, Russian HPC vendor RSC Group showcased the next generation of their liquid-cooled RSC Tornado supercomputers based on Intel Xeon Scalable Processors. “RSC is demonstrating a full set of components for modern HPC computing systems of different scale with 100% direct liquid cooling in ‘hot water’ mode, including high-performance RSC Tornado computing nodes based on the top-bin Intel Xeon Platinum and Intel Xeon Gold processors (part of the Intel Xeon Scalable platform), Intel Server Board S2600BP, high-speed NVMe solid state drives in high-dense М.2 format and the latest Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X Series. The RSC Tornado solution is built using 100% direct liquid cooled Intel Omni-Path Edge Switch 100 Series that ensures end-to-end efficiency of the cooling solution with ‘hot water’ and eventually the lowest possible total cost of ownership of the system.”

RSC Group from Russia Brings Hot Water Cooling to HPC

Last week at ISC 2017, the Russian RSC Group showcased its ultra high-dense scalable and energy efficient RSC Tornado cluster solution as well as a full set of components for modernizing HPC systems to become 100% hot liquid cooling. “The RSC Tornado is based on 72-core Intel Xeon PhiTM 7290 processor has established the world computing density record for x86 architecture in 1.41 Petaflops per cabinet or over 490 Teraflops/m3.”

RSC Group to Market HPC Solutions in Czech Republic

Today Russia’s RSC Group announced a business cooperation agreement with M Computers to market and deploy RSC’s HPC solutions in the Czech Republic. “We believe that partnership with M Computers will help RSC to offer its innovative supercomputing and data center solutions for European clients, which could recognize such advantages of our equipment as the ultimate computing and power density, energy-efficiency, compactness, reliability, ease to manage and maintain.”

Russia’s RSC Group Receives Intel HPC Data Center Specialist Status

Today Russia’s RSC Group announced that the company has received the elite HPC Data Center Specialist partner status from Intel Corporation, confirming the very high level competence of company’s employees and its business experience in development and deployment of HPC solutions based on Intel server products. According to RSC, only 12 companies in the EMEA region have received such recognition while only 35 Intel partners have received it worldwide.

RSC Tornado with Intel Xeon Phi Sports 528 Teraflops Per Cabinet

Today the RSC Group out of Russia announced a new generation of high-performance scalable and energy-efficient RSC Tornado solution with direct liquid cooling based on the newest multi-core Intel Xeon Phi processor (previously code named as Knights Landing) on the day of global launch of this product. The new RSC solution has improved physical and computing density, high energy efficiency and provides stable operation in “hot water” mode with +63 °С cooling agent temperature.

TUM Germany Wins Highest Linpack Award on RSC system at SC15 Student Cluster Competition

Today Russia’s RSC Group announced that Team TUMuch Phun from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) won the Highest Linpack Award in the SC15 Student Cluster Competition. The enthusiastic students achieved 7.1 Teraflops on the Linpack benchmark using an RSC PetaStream cluster with computing nodes based on Intel Xeon Phi. TUM student team took 3rd place in overall competition within 9 teams participated in SCC at SC15, so as only one European representative in this challenge.

Russians Enhance RSC Tornado Cluster Solution

At ISC 2015 last week, Russian supercomputing vendor RSC Group showcased its next generation RSC Tornado cluster solution. Enhanced with higher computing density, energy efficiency, and operational stability “hot water” mode, the RSC Tornado reduces infrastructure while making it easier to upgrade system components.
