University of Oklahoma: Driving Cutting-Edge Research

Veuillez nous excuser, ce PDF peut uniquement être téléchargé

The OU Supercomputing Center for Education & Research (OSCER) at the University of Oklahoma (OU) needed to refresh its primary high-performance computing (HPC) cluster to support a growing number of researchers across a broad range of disciplines. The OSCER team selected Dell PowerEdge* servers equipped with the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family and QLogic InfiniBand* adapters for the new 6,992-core cluster, named Boomer. The new cluster typically delivers 3.5 times the sustained performance per server of the previous cluster and significantly expands the HPC resources available to the research community while reducing the total cluster energy consumption by approximately 30 percent.

CHALLENGES
• Increase capacity. Accommodate a growing number of HPC users and help them answer increasingly complex questions in fields ranging from aerospace and highenergy physics to weather forecasting to zoology.
• Boost performance. Enable researchers to increase the speed, detail, and accuracy of their work.
• Improve energy efficiency. Expand capacity while controlling power consumption and other operating costs.

SOLUTION
• Dell PowerEdge servers with the Intel Xeon processor E5 family. The OSCER team implemented a 6,992-core cluster, based on Dell PowerEdge servers equipped with the Intel Xeon processor E5 family and QLogic InfiniBand adapters.
