Hybrid Solutions with a Vector-Architecture for Efficiency
SESSION: Novel and Future Architectures I
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums
TIME: 10:30AM - 11:00AM
The important topic of HPC these days is sustained performance on real applications per total cost of ownership. NEC’s target is to optimise this by providing hybrid systems, addressing the diversity of user requirements in the optimal way. NEC’s scalar product line, the LX-Series, is based on industry-standard components and very successful because of NEC’s ability to maximize application performance on x86-based and GPU-accelerated compute clusters. Vector architectures feature a high efficiency by design. Therefore NEC is developing the next generation NEC SX vector system focussing on TCO-enhancements through superior computational and power efficiency. The real challenge lies in the seamless integration of a variety of such components into a hybrid system. NEC has installed such systems at big customer sites, getting valuable feedback, and is working to enhance the seamless integration to improve the personal efficiency of the scientific user.
