    • Aurora solutionsValue creation
    • Aurora solution benefitsAURORA
    • Aurora supercomputers from Eurotech• Aurora is the name of the Eurotech liquid cooled supercomputers, which excel in• Computing power• Density• Energy efficiency• Reliability• Availability• Compatibility• Cost effectiveness
    • Why Aurora solutions?High performance Scalability Reliabilityand high density Linear scalability to users High qualityFastest available from Gigaflops to Exaflops No moving parts andtechnology for high density reduced hot spotscomputational powerCompatibility and Green Competenceflexibility Aurora data centers HPC division expertiseChoice of interconnects consume 50% less power End to end solutionX86 based systems than data centers based on deployment standard air cooled Flexibility to work with final technology customer, SI and as OEM
    • High Performance and High Density • Aurora uses the fastest Intel technology available − Intel Xeon E5 (Sandy Bridge) on the latest Aurora HPC 10-10 − Optional GPU accelerators as part of the solution • Fast Infiniband Interconnects − Water cooled infiniband switches included in the systems (one every chassis) • 3D Torus − High speed up to 60 GB/sec 3D torus network based on FPGA − In collaboration with research institutions like I.N.F.N, TNW and FBK, Eurotech has developed one of the fastest and most reliable 3DTorus in the market • FPGA accelerators − Aurora nodes have an on-board FPGA that can be programmed as an accelerator • High Density – Aurora systems can pack 2 PetaFlops in just 30 m2, the size of a studio flat.
    • Scalability • Hot pluggable modular system – All components of the Aurora system are hot pluggable. Aurora can be scaled from a single chassis with 16 nodes to multiple chassis in a rack and into a system with multiple racks • 3D torus network − Next neighbor network with no switches and no bottlenecks facilitates scalability • Infiniband – Fast interconnections allow low latency communication • Synchronization network – Very fast channel and global commands with subdomain manageability – Low/high level synchronization
    • Reliability • Aurora provides the customers with no moving parts: – There are no spinning discs and no fans for cooling on-board heat generating components – As a result, there are no vibrations that can harm memory and rotating discs, increasing the longevity of components and, as a consequence, of the whole system. • Aurora cooling limits hot spots − Improved cooling infrastructure and direct to component heat removal allows uniformity in heat production/removal, limiting hot spots and hence another cause of failures • Monitoring and resilience – Independent sensor networks – Redundancy of all components including networks – Choice of pro active support (preventive maintenance) • Eurotech commitment to quality – Eurotech produces its boards in its Japanese plant, following high quality standards – Eurotech HPC selects the best in class supplier to set up the Aurora solutions
    • Flexibility and compatibility • Choice of interconnects – Aurora computational units offer both an Infiniband network and a 3D Torus interconnection – The customer can choose what is the best technology to be implemented accordingly to the nature of the computational problem to be solved • x86 based solution – Aurora supercomputers are based on x86 processors – Intel cluster ready certified • A choice of software – Aurora can run a vast variety of software, both open source and commercial • A flexible solution approach – Eurotech HPC can design solutions involving accelerators, storage and software, according to customer requirements
    • Green and environmental Everyone nowadays claims to be «green» – but are they? Aurora Green proposition: • Energy efficiency (achievable datacenter PUE of 1.05) • Direct on component water cooling • High reliability means less spare parts and hence less waste • 230 AC to 10 V DC in 2 steps for a power conversion efficiency between 93% and 97% • Free cooling (heat exchangers rather than chillers and AHU) • Thermal energy recovery • High density for floor space savings • Noiseless operations means better work environments
    • Competence • 10 years+ of HPC experience: – An extended experience in top HPC projects – Collaborated with best in class research center to develop advanced supercomputer prototypes – Developed experience in delivering large systems (15M$+) • Structure and agility: – Eurotech HPC division benefits from the structure coming from the Eurotech group, while keeping the typical agility of a start up – This means prompt adaptability to customer needs. Eurotech can deliver end to end HPC solutions inclusive of supercomputers, storage, sotware and services. But they can also work with system integrators, delivering parts of larger systems and as OEM for larger vendors • Financial solidity – Differently from the pure HPC players in the market, Eurotech income statements relies on multiple line of business, helping the HPC division to smooth revenues and to rely on abundant resources
    • Aurora total cost of ownershipAURORA
    • Data center TCO driversDriver Cost componentsIT CAPEX Initial SW and HW capital expendituresSpace occupancy Cost of the occupied space and auxiliary infrastructure: rent,(footprint) opportunity cost, civil, structural and engineering, permits and taxesData center infrastructure Electrical (UPS, generator, cables…) Cooling (Chillers, AHUs, heat exchangers, pumps…)Installation Delivery costs, installation, test and tuning of IT, electrical and cooling equipmentEnergy Cost of energy: IT, cooling, lighting and wasteMaintenance and additional Warranty extensions, support, software licenses, IT maintenance,operation costs electrical and cooling maintenance, facilities maintenance, costs of outages, heating, securityOther: disposal, green Costs of end of life, carbon footprint (missed) incentives, fines…
    • Main Areas of Aurora systems impact on TCO• Area 1: energy savings – Lower costs due to energy cost optimization and better PUE• Area 2: density (FLOPS/ m2) – Aurora density allows for space, racks, electrical, cooling and network savings• Area 3: reliability – Aurora reliability contributes to lower maintenance costs and outage business costs• Area 4: liquid cooling – A part from the energy savings that water cooling implies, it also allows to save on the capital costs of cooling infrastructure
    • TCO - energy“Typical” power breakdown in datacenters Data from APC Image from APC
    • TCO- energyPower breakdown in an Aurora datacenter leading to a PUE of 1.05
    • TCO- energyEnergy savings • Example of energy savings compared to 2 alternative air cooled solutions • Rationale: less energy spent in cooling and less energy wasted in power conversion. Savings compared to an air Savings compared to an air cooled 1U servers based cooled blade servers based data centre data centre (PUE = 2.13) (PUE = 1,6) Total energy savings in 5 years compared to € 2,820,000 € 1,200,000 alternative solutions
    • TCO - density + IT hardware + costs, like racks servers + network, electrical and + electrical cooling hardware costs LESS Flops/m2 + maintenance + cooling costs + space + energy costs occupancy (m2) + raised floor + volume costs occupancy(m3) + civil, structural and engineering costs
    • TCO - reliability N is related to density The indirect impact depends on organisation and could range from thousands to millions € per hour of outage. So the impact of low reliability on the business could offset any saving reached during purchase and installation of IT solutions!
    • TCO – liquid cooling Adopting liquid cooling technology, it is possible to avoid most of air conditioning used to cool the IT equipment This bear some saving coming from the avoidance of chillers, AHU, CFD (computational fluid dynamics), raised floor, air conditioning tuning Liquid cooling infrastructure is generally cheaper relying on components like piping, pumps and free coolers. If we take a 1 MW installation and we consider a cost of air cooling infrastcrure of 3000$/KW, the toal cooling would be 3M$. The same 1MW data center would probably require roughly 10% of that expenditure
