ISC 2020 - Your Datacentre is Slow!

ISC 2020 - Your Datacentre is Slow!

The Top500 announced at ISC that 8 out of the top 10 systems on it's list are powered by NVIDIA GPU’s or Mellanox's networking technology which is endorsement enough, that if your datacentre isn't running on Mellanox, it's not running to its maximum capabilities.  Complex simulations create massive amounts of data that need to be analysed - and performance can be throttled by the bottlenecks that poor networking infrastructure creates. It's not just about the fastest data speed, it's about the lowest latency, smart accelerations and the highest efficiency and resiliency. InfiniBand is the best choice to connect the world's top HPC and AI supercomputers. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In- Network Computing

 With In-network computing capabilities, such as SHARP™ transforms the network into a powerful compute resource which can process data as it    traverses the network. A wide range of native hardware-based offloads including MPI tag-matching and rendezvous protocol offloads, GPUDirect RDMA and NVMEoF are just a few examples of advanced technologies that are readily employed by Mellanox InfiniBand.

Boston chooses Mellanox as standard and are proud Mellanox distributors, as well as being the most accredited NVIDIA Elite Partner in Europe; our combined prowess provides leading expertise in compute and networking technologies for HPC.

HPC Solutions powered by Mellanox

BioScience

Today’s media data centers invest in high-performance HPC cluster technology, combining the power of hundreds or thousands of processors in the service of highly complex rendering tasks Animation and augmented reality are essential to today’s production methods and require the best performing network for highly parallel computing both on CPUs and GPUs with GPU-direct, in the presence of massive data storage requirements.

EDA

Electronic Design Automation involves 3D modeling, fluid dynamics, and other compute-intensive processes that require high-performance computing (HPC) data center solutions. These applications use highly-coupled parallel algorithms that can be very sensitive to communication fabric and framework latencies. Mellanox InfiniBand with Mellanox SHARP technology can deliver upwards of 10x improvements for these applications.

Manufacturing

Mellanox InfiniBand with RDMA enables complex systems to be modelled using large memory models in real time to produce higher degrees of accuracy and optimize manufacturing processes for improved safety, productivity, and/or costs.

Media & Entertainment

Today’s media data centers invest in high-performance HPC cluster technology, combining the power of hundreds or thousands of processors in the service of highly complex rendering tasks Animation and augmented reality are essential to today’s production methods and require the best performing network for highly parallel computing both on CPUs and GPUs with GPU-direct, in the presence of massive data storage requirements.

Oil & Gas 

Oil and gas companies use HPC technology to explore and locate new repositories for refinement in a highly competitive industry. Success depends on expensive, very high resolution data collection and complex modelling/analysis techniques. These computing challenges involve processing massive amounts of data to reduce the cost of locating and harvesting raw fuel products and optimizing production.

Weather & Astronomy

Meteorological forecasting and research requires high-speed processing of massive data inputs, often n real-time; so productivity depends on processing speed. Ocean modelling and astronomy face similar challenges of computing very large scale simulations. Data centers used in these types of research use HPC cluster technology, combining the power of thousands of CPUs with large, high-speed storage systems.

AI

It has been said that artificial intelligence will create the next industrial revolution, the fourth industrial revolution that modern-day society has experienced since the dawn of mechanical production and steam power energy. Artificial Intelligence is a pillar of today’s technological world, offering solutions that enable better and more accurate decision making based on the great amounts of data being collected. Mellanox Solutions accelerate the world’s leading artificial intelligence and deep learning platforms.

Machine Learning

Machine learning encompasses a wide range of applications, ranging from security, finance, and image and voice recognition, to self-driving cars, healthcare and smart cities. The fusion of state-of-the-art computational capabilities, extensive automation and extreme connectivity is already impacting nearly every aspect of society, driving global economics and extending into every aspect of our daily life. Mellanox solutions enable companies and organizations to leverage machine learning platforms and enhance their competitive advantage.

 

Mellanox Ethernet

The industry-leading Mellanox ConnectX® family of intelligent data center network adapters offers the broadest and most advanced hardware offloads, which enable the highest ROI and lowest TCO for Cloud, Enterprise, AI/ML, Hyperscale, Telco/Edge, and demanding modern workloads.
