Cutting-edge Test Bed Cluster Architecture Based on Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor
Release Date:May 22, 2013
As part of the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) Advanced Simulation and Computing program, Sandia National Laboratories is addressing a critical need for experimental architecture test beds to support path-finding explorations of alternative programming models. The transition from single-core to multicore processor technology and the advent of heterogeneous compute node architectures and accelerators — coupled with the continually increasing demand for more computing cycles — has made Sandia explore cutting-edge technology changes to their high performance computing (HPC). The Cray CS300-AC™ cluster supercomputer was used for these test bed configurations. Based on industry-standard, optimized and flexible server platforms, the Cray CS300-AC system offers cutting-edge technologies designed to increase performance while reducing power consumption.
