After a long day of SC10 meetings, I’m ready for an afternoon snack, these tasty looking apples, courtesy of Tokyo Tech’s TSUBAME2.0, should do the trick.
Of course, HP has 159 other systems on the Top500 list in addition to TSUBAME2.0, so let me say a little about #117, the Georgia Tech Keeneland system recently installed at ORNL. Like TSUBAME2.0, Keeneland is based on the HP SL390s server and Nvidia GPUs. The Keeneland system is the largest deployment we are aware of using Nvidia’s latest M2070 GPU, supporting 6 GB of memory per GPU (TSUBAME2.0 primarily uses Nvidia M2050 GPUs with 3 GB of GPU memory). Keeneland was built and integrated at HP’s Houston Texas factor and delivered to ORNL, which was able to run a full system Linpack test within several days of delivery, a task that would have taken weeks or months to complete without HP’s factory integration services. Just another example of HP accelerating customer’s scientific research initiatives.
