Lenovo laat High Performance Computing innovaties zien tijdens Supercomputing 2014

Beste redactie,

Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) kondigt tijdens Supercomputing 2014 drie nieuwe initiatieven aan die de nieuwste ontwikkelingen in high performance computing (HPC) bevatten. Deze ontwikkelingen van HPC hebben commerciële voordelen voor een breder spectrum van klanten en workloads.

· De introductie van een nieuw Lenovo HPC Innovation Center in Stuttgart, Duitsland
Dit nieuwe centrum zal een permanente benchmarking-, onderzoeks- en ontwikkelingssite (R&D) voor Lenovo zijn. Het zal een breed ecosysteem van technologieën en vaardigheden bieden om de applicaties van klanten te helpen optimaliseren. Terwijl het hart van de faciliteit in Stuttgart blijft, zal de Lenovo HPC Innovation Center een beroep doen op de talenten van verschillende gespecialiseerde klantenpartners uit heel Europa. Lenovo zal de nieuwste technologie, de samenwerking met klantenpartners en grondige HPC-vaardigheden gebruiken om de wetenschap te bevorderen en de invoering van high performance computing zo breed mogelijk te maken. De installatie van het Stuttgart center start in december en klanten kunnen er vanaf januari 2015 online gebruik van maken. De samenwerking met de key client partners is al in volle gang.

· ‘s Werelds best presterende two-socket server met de Intel Xeon E5 2698A v3 processor Lenovo en Intel werkten samen aan de Intel Xeon E5-2698A v3. Deze CPU is geoptimaliseerd voor HPC workloads en alleen beschikbaar in speciaal ontworpen servers, zoals het NeXtScale System met Water Cool Technology (WCT). De Intel E5-2698A v3 is, wanneer geïnstalleerd in de NeXtScale met WCT, het hoogst presterende two-socket server platform1. NeXtScale met WCT stelt klanten in staat om een ​​`groen´ datacenter te creëren om de beste combinatie van energie-efficiëntie en prestaties te behalen, terwijl het de total cost of ownership verlaagt.

· Een futuristische petaflop demonstratie
Met de ‘Peta Cube’ demonstratie toont Lenovo aan hoe één petaflop-prestatie binnenkort beschikbaar zal zijn binnen een 42U serverkast van 1.2 vierkante meter, samengesteld uit twee standaard racks. Deze unieke techniek maakt gebruik van de NeXtScale System met WCT en Intel Knights Landing om een enorme rekencapaciteit te leveren in slechts twee racks. Het geeft Lenovo de mogelijkheid om petaflop-rekencapaciteit te bieden aan reguliere klanten die op dit moment de datacentercapaciteit missen en geen toereikend budget hebben voor een petaflop-systeem.

Bezoekers van SC14 kunnen meer informatie opvragen bij de Lenovo stand, nummer #1749.

Lenovo Showcases High-Performance Computing Innovations at Supercomputing 2014

NEW ORLEANS – November 19, 2014: At Supercomputing 2014 (SC14),Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced several new initiatives featuring the latest advancements in high-performance computing (HPC), that bring the commercial benefits of HPC to a broader spectrum of clients and workloads.

“HPC is fueling major advancements in areas with high impact to both industry and humanity,” said Adalio Sanchez, senior vice president, Enterprise Systems Group. “These span the discovery of the world’s new energy reserves to biomedical research improving global healthcare. To take advantage of this opportunity, clients seek an IT partner with extensive skills and experience in designing solutions that can meet their unique needs. Our Lenovo team has a long heritage of industry expertise in HPC leading-edge technology. We are investing in innovation, both in research and development, and in services and support to help clients capitalize on emerging trends in HPC – including cloud and big data analytics.”

The announcements today include a state-of-the-art innovation center and a record-setting benchmark.

· Lenovo HPC Innovation Center in Stuttgart, Germany –This new center will establish a permanent benchmarking and R&D site for Lenovo, and will offer a broad ecosystem of technologies and skills to help clients optimize their applications. With support from key partners including Intel® and Mellanox, Lenovo is creating a state-of-the-art system, the foundation of the innovation center, powered by the new Intel Xeon® E5 2600 v3 + Xeon Phi™ coprocessors and leveraging new Mellanox EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand interconnect fabric. While the core facility will reside in Stuttgart, the Lenovo HPC Innovation Center will call on the talents of several specialized client partners from across Europe that will operate satellite sites to further expand capabilities and advance localized research. Lenovo will leverage the newest technology, cooperation with client partners and expansive HPC skills to advance the science and broaden the adoption of high-performance computing. The installation of the Stuttgart center will begin in December and will be online for client use in January 2015. Collaboration with key client partners is already underway.

· The world’s highest-performing, two-socket server with the Intel Xeon E5 2698A v3 processor – Lenovo and Intel collaborated to create the Intel Xeon E5-2698A v3, a CPU optimized for HPC workloads and available only in specially designed servers such as the NeXtScaleTM System with Water Cool Technology (WCT). The Intel E5-2698A v3, when installed in the NeXtScale with WCT, is the industry’s highest-performing, two-socket server platform1, effectively breaking the single-node one teraflop barrier (1.083 teraflops) without the need for accelators. The unique processor features 16 cores running at up to 3.2GHz with turbo mode enabled. In addition to record-setting performance, NeXtScale with WCT allows clients to create a green data center that achieves the ultimate combination of energy efficiency and performance while helping to lower total cost of ownership. Owing to the extreme efficiency of the water-cooled thermal design, processors running in the NeXtScale with WCT can reduce power consumption at a processor level by six percent and at a data-center level by more than 40 percent, as most installations can run without the need for costly chilled-water systems.

· A futuristic petaflop demonstration – Lenovo’s ”peta cube” demonstration showcases how one petaflop of performance — initially supported by nearly 6,000 square feet with 296 racks weighing upwards of half a million pounds — will soon be available within a condensed 42U tall, four foot- by-four foot space comprised of two standard racks. This unique engineering leverages NeXtScale System with WCT and Intel Knights Landing technology to deliver huge computing capacity in only two racks of space. The capability will allow Lenovo to provide petaflop compute capacity to mainstream clients that might currently lack the operating budget and data-center capacity to support a petaflop system.
