White Paper: "Accelerating Performance and Reducing Costs for Data-Intensive HPC Workflows" [21866]
Sun Delivers the Goods for Cost-effective HPC and Technical Computing

Data management and storage system performance, rather than compute power, are becoming the desiderata of high performance computing (HPC) applications contends a recent Sun white paper entitled "Accelerating Performance and Reducing Costs for Data-intensive HPC Workflows". With the fast multicore servers and high-capacity storage systems currently in use, HPC and technical computing customers are generating greater amounts of data through sophisticated models and analysis programs. Today’s HPC environments run more frequent and more complex simulations that absorb and produce increasing amounts of data while sharing the data across global teams of researchers, engineers, or analysts.

New Julich Supercomputer Center and its 2000 Node Sun Constellation System [21900]
One of the First Large QDR-based InfiniBand Supercomputers

The most powerful Sun technology-based computer in Europe is now online. The new Julich Supercomputer Center is supported by 2208 node Sun Constellation System and Sun Blade X6275 server modules. The Sun Constellation Systems operate with Intel Xeon processor 5570 series and communicate with each other via six newly developed "Project M9" InfiniBand switches from Sun that supply quad data rate (QDR) and up to 648 ports while slashing the amount of complex cabling required.
