SGI UV2 - A Fused Computation and Data Analysis Machine
SESSION: New Computer Systems
EVENT TYPE: Papers
TIME: 4:30PM - 5:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Jeffrey Vetter
AUTHOR(S):Gregory M. Thorson, Michael Woodacre
UV2 is SGI’s 2nd generation Data Fusion system. UV2 was designed to meet the latest challenges facing users in computation and data analysis. Its unique ability to perform both functions on a single platform enables efficient, easy to manage workflows. This platform has a hybrid infrastructure, leveraging the latest Intel EP processors to provide industry leading computation. Due to its high bandwidth, extremely low latency NumaLink6 interconnect, plus vectorized synchronization and data movement, UV2 provides industry leading data intensive capability. It supports a single operating system (OS) image up to 64TB and 4K threads. Multiple OS images can be deployed on a single NL6 fabric, which has a single flat address space up to 8PB and 256K threads. These capabilities allow for extreme performance on a broad range of programming models and languages including: OpenMP, MPI, UPC, CAF, and SHMEM. The architecture, implementation, and performance are detailed.
