  • 1. Update for HPC-SIG, July 2013
  • 2. 1. Our expertise 2. Supercomputing on demand 3. Soul of the new machine 4. Next steps Topics
  • 3. HPC Midlands builds on HPC expertise at Loughborough University and the University of Leicester. We have the infrastructure and expert team to drive innovation in research and industry. Our Expertise
  • 4. Our Expertise
  • 5. Our Expertise
  • 6. Our Expertise
  • 7. Our Expertise
  • 8. Why make a huge capital investment in HPC when you can pay for the capacity you need, when you need it? HPC Midlands provides cost- effective supercomputing on demand for research and industry, delivered via the JANET network. Supercomputing on Demand
  • 9. - Not just a system for academics who write their own code - We asked industrial HPC users what they needed from us - Key requirement: Flexible software licensing - Result: Deep engagement with Independent Software Vendors Supercomputing on Demand
  • 10. Supercomputing on Demand
  • 11. 3,000 cores (48 Teraflops) 11 chassis (18 blades each) 15TB RAM 120TB Lustre storage Non-blocking QDR Infiniband 188 compute node blades: 2 x 2.0GHz (8 core) Sandy Bridge 140 with 64GB RAM (4GB/core) 48 with 128GB RAM (8GB/core) Soul of the New Machine
  • 12. Commercial software: - CD-adapco Star-CCM+ - ANSYS CFX - MSC Marc - Intel Cluster Studio / MKL Open Source: - OpenFOAM - Quantum Espresso - DL-POLY - NETCDF - pHDF5 - PETSc (and more!) Soul of the New Machine
  • 13. Next Steps
  • 14. Next Steps
  • 15. Next Steps
  • 16. Slide credit: Gary Page / Leigh Lapworth
  • 17. Next Steps Industrial HPC user requirements: - Complex licensing scenarios - Virtualization! - Compatibility with their choice of OS, scheduler, interconnect, … - Ambitious targets for turn-around time
  • 18. Next Steps - Requirement for a particular ISV software revision - Take over allocated resources - Real time processing, no queueing - Increasing interest in Open Source, esp. OpenFOAM - Looking for “national grid” 
