From exascale to the enterprise

Digital transformation and the need to extract insight from massive data sets is universal. So the supercomputing infrastructure supporting these requirements must be universal too – and accessible to every organisation from small enterprises to the largest national labs.  In the Exascale Era, computing changes for everyone – because it is for everyone.  HPE Cray supercomputers set the standard for Exascale Era-ready systems. Designed from the ground up for today’s new workloads, HPE Cray supercomputing technology will power the first three U.S. exascale systems. These systems will drive solutions to some of the world’s most persistent challenges. What’s more, that same technology that will topple problems such as cancer and climate change will also power single cabinets for every level of business and research.

Meet the HPE supercomputing line-up

HPE Cray supercomputer
A standard 19" rack configuration with the flexibility for smaller and also air-cooled solutions. The current compute platform is the Apollo 2000 Gen10 Plus with 4 AMD® EPYC® 7002 nodes in a 2U compute server with HPE Cray software and HPE Slingshot networking installed.
HPE Cray EX supercomputer
For highest density and efficiency, liquid-cooled cabinetry supports direct liquid cooling of all components in a highly dense bladed configuration. These cabinets contain eight chassis, each of which supports up to eight compute and eight switchblades. The orthogonal orientation of compute to switchblades enables a cable less connection.
HPE SGI 8600
Industry standard liquid cooled clustered HPC system with built in high speed interconnect topology and HPE software including HPE Performance Cluster Manager and HPE Message Passing Interface (MPI).

Research institute boosts performance by 4 times

The Institute of Statistical Mathematics refurbished its statistical science supercomputer system to achieve parallel computing performance that was over four times more powerful than its legacy system.

Challenge

Build the next-generation “statistical science supercomputer system” to expand the possibilities in statistical science research by quadrupling computing power.

Solution

Adopted a high-density, water-cooled, cluster HPC system that was able to achieve super-powerful 1.497PFLOPS computing performance with high energy efficiency.

"Using a water-cooled system like HPE SGI 8600 makes it possible to continue operating at high clock rate."

Jun Adachi, PhD, associate professor, The Institute of Statistical Mathematics

Result

Accelerated research activities to open new grounds by achieving supercomputing of an unprecedented level that was once considered impossible.
