New Solutions Optimized for High Performance Data Analytics, Machine Learning, and Software Defined Visualization
Austin, TX, November 16, 2015 – Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing debuts a new 100Gbps HPC cluster solution at SC’15 that leverages the Intel Scalable System Framework (SSF) to address evolving demands across high performance data analytics, machine learning, visualization, traditional modeling and simulation workloads. Supermicro’s 2U TwinPro²™ and new 1U 48-port top-of-rack network switch support the 100Gbps Intel® Omni-Path Architecture (OPA) providing a unique HPC cluster solution offering excellent bandwidth, latency and message rate that is highly scalable and easily serviceable. In addition, Supermicro will highlight its 2U TwinPro²™ SuperServer® supporting the Intel® Xeon Phi™ x200 Processor providing 4x hot-swappable single socket nodes and support for 100Gbps via Intel® Omni-Path Architecture add-on-cards.
“Supermicro’s robust and versatile 100Gbps enabled 2U TwinPro² with Intel Xeon and Xeon Phi x200 processors combined with our 100Gbps 48-port top-of-rack Omni-Path based network switch is exactly the best solution for HPC applications that require maximum performance, scalability, compatibility and sustainability,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “Our end-to-end high performance computing clusters that leverage Intel processor technologies, Omni-Path Architecture and coming SSF are now available for SDV, HPC and Enterprise/Cloud scale applications and will help drive the next generation of supercomputing.”
“Intel® Omni-Path Architecture offers a scalable high-performance fabric solution that addresses the growing needs of HPC and data center applications,” said Hugo Saleh, Director of HPC Marketing and Industry Development at Intel. “Our ongoing collaboration with Supermicro leverages Intel best-in-class technologies to develop high performance end-to-end computing solutions that help customers reduce power consumption and cost inherent in extremely large scale HPC deployments. Together we are planning to deliver balanced systems using the Intel® Scalable System Framework early next year that maximize compute footprint, interconnect performance and overall FLOPs per dollar.”
