Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) will enter into an effort to develop the ‘biggest and most effective’ supercomputer in the Netherlands – a job worth EUR20 million.
Lenovo DCG will support ICT cooperative organisation BROWSE to assist develop the supercomputer, which is anticipated to be operation by mid-2021.
According to SURF research study services supervisor Walter Lioen states that scientists’ requirement for calculating power, information storage and processing is growing ‘greatly’.
” In the style of the brand-new supercomputer, the functionality for clinical research study was vital. BROWSE has actually picked Lenovo since of its quality, efficiency and future versatility, along with its factors to consider for sustainability.”
Lenovo’s high-performance computing (HPC) innovation consists of Lenovo ThinkSystem servers, powered by second Gen AMD EPYC processors, ThinkSystem servers powered by future generation AMD EPYC processors, Lenovo Neptune water cooling innovation, 12.4 Pebibyte (PiB) of Lenovo Dispersed Storage Service (DSS-G) and servers with NVIDIA HGX A100 4-GPU.
Lenovo’s cooling innovation intends to eliminate 90% of heat from the whole system.
NVIDIA Mellanox HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand will supply wise in-network computing velocity engines, supply the exceptionally low latency, high information throughput networking.
” We’re so happy to add to a job that will not just improve clinical research study in the Netherlands however provide a smarter and more energy-efficient system, thanks to our unbelievable water-cooling innovation,” states Lenovo DCG basic supervisor for Benelux and Nordic, Tina Borgbjerg.
” The large power that will be provided by this nationwide supercomputer showcases our strength in HPC, and the scale of this offer even more shows our dedication to the Benelux area and the Netherlands.”
The supercomputer will provide more than 10 times the capability of the previous system and will accomplish peak efficiency of nearly 13 petaflops.
AMD and NVIDIA are similarly enthused about the job.
” Integrating the world’s most innovative AI innovation, all linked by high-bandwidth, low-latency NVIDIA Mellanox HDR InfiniBand networking, into the BROWSE supercomputer provides scientists what they require to rapidly and efficiently handle the work of the exascale AI period,” states NVIDIA basic supervisor and vice president of sped up computing, Ian Dollar.
AMD’s industrial EMEA senior director Roger Benson includes, “AMD is happy to be dealing with leading international organizations to supply access to innovative innovations and abilities that are vital for supporting modern-day HPC work and research study that attends to a few of the world’s biggest difficulties.”
Facilities modernisation on the supercomputer will start this month. The supercomputer will support research study and development throughout all fields of science.
