Welcome – thanks for spending some time with usLet me start off by saying that I love what I do – and my team loves what they doHigh PC is about tackling large scale problems and supporting researchers who are solving critical societal and business challengesOver the next couple of days you have or will hear a great deal of talk around the importance of R&D and innovation to your business – from President Clinton and how it is the backbone to several of his, and our joint endeavors; Think about data analysis behind the scenes to publish Freakenomics; Ping Fu who considers herself both an Artist and Scientist; Leila Chirayath ‘s work across global health to microwork; Moss’ and the MIT Media Lab; Ingrid Vanderveldt our own Entrepreneur in Residence, and CEO of Green Girl EnergyThe total bill at Dell World this week is filled with sessions that are a result of the mashup of ideation and innovation HPC is not just for mad scientists anymore because it permeates everything we do
The US Council on Competitive has published that 97% of government and commercial work will be touched by HPCWhen government talks about the need to invest in Research, HPC is a primary driver of accelerating resultsBut let me start my gauging where the folks in the audience are todayHow many have a production HPC shop in their org?How many are investigating?Who is looking at Big Data? Hadoop? Et alC. Hastings, Approximations for Digital Computers, 1955
Definition of terms – not quantified by T500Let’s talk about what HPC really is - beyond the common perceptionAt its most basic level HPC is: about solving problems too big for conventional enterprise systemsGetting it rightAnd getting it right awayWhile the path to building a production HPC function within an organization is not without its twists and turns, the most successful organizations have stuck to several basic tenants: flexible/scalable, relevant innovation & reliable and secure
ROLE THAT DELL PLAYS in all of this … We do not write the software that predicts the weather, we build the system that allows you to run the software model in 1 minute instead of one week. There is value in getting the right answer – there is even more value in getting the right answer right awaySupercomputing became an industry with the Cray-1 at Las Alamos National Lab in 1976Dell engineers built the first HPC cluster out of surplused systems in 2000 Linux-based HPC clusters began to dominate the HPC landscape in 2003 Fast forward2007 - Lawrence Livermore National Labs deploys 300TFlops for $250+Serves 6 codes to an elite group of researchers2008 - Michael Dell keynotes Supercomputing2008 and tells audience our job is to bring more compute to more researchers2010 – Dell delivers 290 TFlops to LLNL for $25MServes scores of codes to hundreds of researchers2012 – Dell partners with TACC to deliver 10PFlops for $25MServes hundreds of codes to thousands of researchersConscious decision to support research community - rather than build supercomputing companyImpact on solutions: open, capable and affordable rather than proprietary and performance at any costGoal:provide more research cycles to more drive research than any other vendorIn(verse) vernacular of supercomputing – capacity vs capability
What is it?Who uses it?Service being provided to all – CIO look at it as a serviceHPC used to be the PhD at the end of the hall with their own data center, budget and languageToday, they are a valuable asset in attracting grant money and new researchers to a university and in the commercial realm they provide a service no different than marketing or sales ops• Global competitive challenges• Traditional cost and quality competitive terms are no longer viable• Creating new value determines competitiveadvantageBreakthrough insights, improved efficiencyReduces design and physical prototyping costs
The GPS system was conceived, developed and deployed for strictly military and intelligence purposes right around the same time as the first supercomputer was deliveredBillions have been invested in satellites, software and ground stationsBut it was the commercialization of it during the first Gulf War which has brought the greatest societal impactIn the 80’s, the user community was listed in the thousands – today there are 770M GPS enabled handsetsRight answer (where am I) right away creates valueSlide 6Global positioning satellite system to general purpose solution in 38 Man years1.231 x10^9 seconds24 Satellites continuously circle earth – 4 are always visible from any one point – triangulation of your (latitude/longitude) location w/in 10m1990-1991 U.S. troops used it for navigation on land, sea and in the air for targeting of bombs and for on-board missile guidance. Today: GPS applications have improved business operations and best practices in a range of industries, including farming, construction, transportation, and aerospace; improved safety, emergency response times, environmental quality, and has delivered many other less-readily quantifiable benefits. GPS is already a multi-billion dollar industry, the future potential is still far reaching. *Source: NDP Consulting; Econimic benefits of GPS in US and cost of potential disruption2014*Source: Berg Insights: GPS Mobile Handsets’ LBS Research Series
Collaboration is an MBA throw-away word in most instances, but in the case of our business – it has been a cornerstone since Day OneI am proud that at Dell we have accomplished all that we have with less than 100 dedicated employees at any given time – it is only through collaboration we could accomplish all that we have. With customers, with vendors, with government, with standards committees, etc.The key to our customer collaboration is predicated on one theme – our customers have customersBe sure to visit TACC presentation. That is the product of a 7 year collaborationRemember when I said reliable and secure? “performance at any cost” mad scientists don’t care about reliability or security. These are production systems so you should care about that and not assume your architects doThe systems is not the goal, the right answer right away is the goal – so our goal is to make the system invisible to your user communityIt is also a collaboration. As an as a service platform, collaboration is implicit.Traditional View of HPC – large scale systems, complex, etc – one system; one batch job running endlessly; for one scientist. What it really is: Innovation & Discovery accelerator; What it means to you: Shrink time to insight; Time to solutionSystemically: Large complex system; integration of server, software, networking, storage; single system – “reverse virtualization”. Historically - Classic example when we think traditional HPC is Texas Advanced Computing Center: TACC boasts the number 7 platform in the Top 500 world’s largest systems: StampedeUp to 10PF Peak performance in initial system (Early 2013) up to 15 PF with Xeon Phi in 201514PB+ disk; 272TB+ RAM; 56Gb FDR InfiniBand interconnectNearly 200 racks of compute hardware (10,000 sq ft)>SIX MEGAWATTS total powerBut their goal is deliver more cycles to more users : And the Crowning achievement is that Stampede is designed for top capacity versus top performance. TACC has had a long history in delivering more cycles to more users - on Dell based platforms. We have had a long collaborative history together – beyond standard vendor:customer. Big Iron (FE) & HPC & R&D; is all about collaboration.
I have said several time that “the system is not the reason” and I’d like to give an example of where making the system the focal point led to failureConcorde was launch in the early 70’s as the most revolutionary advancement in commercial aviation since evolving from prop to jet1500mph for the passengers fortunate enough to live close to Washington, London, Paris New York with $10k and able to get one of the 100 available seatsAt the same time the 747 was being developed It traveled a mundane 600mph, held 416 passengers (most of them coach), could land at most international airports and got much better fuel performanceBoeing had a decision to make and went with addressable market over high endToday Concorde is out of service while there are over 1300 747s in serviceIf we equate research cycles to air miles flown – we are the 747 of HPCIncidentally – Boeing understanding that international flight would be long – especially in coach – also first introduced inflight movies on the 747So let’s talk about some of the very real HPC customers …
Performance. While we want to lean toward our typical performance measurements (Io/s; etc) … it’s about compute capability (always) but also about our performance with our customers to enable their mission … in this case Caterham Racing.Austin just hosted it’s first F1 race; Dell has been a big sponsor of racing teams, including Caterham which finished this year in the number 10 spot of the Constructors Series, which for a small start-up team is huge – as it means a huge infusion to the team and it’s ability to optimize even more for next season. We’ve had a long relationship with Caterham – from their beginnings in 2009 to now. Zero to 250 mph in 22 weeks to race ready. Initial designs were initiated on Cambridge University’s (Dell-based) Cloud. They had massive performance and environmental dependencies as well as time to design to race ready. For their F1 car - design calculations run 163,398 per second.They also rely heavily on advanced CFD to accurately simulate wind tunnels (pre-race). Their Trackside IT had to withstand extreme conditions (vibration, heat, etc); still maintain 20 GB/s in performance with temp extremes up to 40 degree celcius.Solution delivered was a compact, portable, ruggedized half-rack - Dell PowerEdge R210 and R710 servers; with VMware® vSphere™; EqualLogic SSD storage arrays; PowerConnect and Force10 switches (for iSCSI) and PowerVault™ TL2000 for back-up and protection.They use our Alienware™ Area-51 desktops to support their work and gain greater processing speed without increasing physical footprint; Latitude laptops and Precision mobile workstations to process more than 2 gigabytes of data streaming from cars on the track; Dell Latitude™ ST Tablets allow drivers to obtain a detailed picture of their performance through a range of dashboards to access the data they need fast.We’re also working closely with the team on their IT infrastructure for their new head office in Oxfordshire which require continued scaling; a virtualized environment complete with a unified communications infrastructure. A key part of the infrastructure, however, is the design of the data centre in terms of energy efficiency and precision - that the Caterham team also designs into its cars. Dell is helping to design a free-cooling data centre to save resources and lower carbon emissions.A lot of the work we do these days centers more on solving for power and cooling than outright compute, but all are important as they have huge dependencies on building the right architecture to solve a complete problem. What we also know is that no one size fits all … in fact HPC is …
The way we engage and collaborate to meet the needs of our customers helps them to “make it happen,”After celebrating a Williams F1 first win in eight years, a serious fire suddenly erupted in the Williams garage, injuring several members of the team and destroying all of their IT equipment, which is responsible for everything down to starting the car for F1 teams. With the trackside IT destroyed, it was unlikely that Williams would be able to compete in the Monaco Grand Prix two weeks later.Watching the scene unfold on TV, Jon Harle, Motorsport Account Director at Dell, sprang into action, determining the worst case scenario and notifying everyone whose help was required. Supported by Sean Collins, Service Delivery Manager, the team coordinated the EMEA-wide collection of warranty parts needed for the new kit; engaging with our logistics, supply chain and ECC colleagues, while also managing the customer’s expectations. Sir Frank Williams, founder and chairman of the Williams F1 team even wrote Michael Dell a letter thanking the team for their rapid response and exceptional customer service. The fast action and collaboration of the team helped put the Williams team back on track for their season, which could have been met with heavy fines if they failed to compete in scheduled races. This is a great example of agility in collaboration, understanding the unique needs of the customer, recognizing the sense of urgency and using all available information to deliver the best solution for the customer. Congratulations to the entire team for turning a devastating situation into a win for both teams!
The F1 example is great but almost stereotypical for HPC so let’s take a look at something a bit closer to daily lifeP&G is one of the great consumer companies in the world. They are known for having the right products at the right time, innovations and time to marketHPC is a the backbone of their product development. Diapers, Pringles, Tide bottles – are all done via simulation rather than on the benchI asked about Hadoop recently. What do you think P&G could do with the capability of combing through troves of customer data to deliver the right product at the right time to the right consumer at the right price. Right answer – right awayCommercial adoption of HPC as a competitive weaponIn the “fever” for the flavor (and unique design) of the Pringles potato chip … they used HPC to stop the chip from flying off the manufacturing belt. A complex modeling job for efficient chip design. A showcase in the broad application of HPC in consumer driven operations. Today, P&G uses HPC to support the shelf life (biodegradability) of diapers; safe transport of coffee (exploding Folgers) and on and on … Today P&G has the hardware/issue solved – now challenge is software/licensing, etc. The next new frontier. Our role between your R&D and production environment is to move the industry forward, such as working directly with commercial software developers to address the license and scale. For a lot of customers, it may be the first time you see a problem or an opportunity – but for us it is likely not first time we’ve seen it.What we have also seen, as with P&G, is how HPC really does benefit the bottom line. Our customers and ours (as a consumer).
Not all companies have the resources of P&G but all could use the technology we are discussing.Talk about missing middleWhat does this all mean for you? It’s either already there, on it’s way or something to think about. In the US alone there are over 300,000 manufacturing companies, most with less than 500 employees; who spend significant time in development, design and bringing ideas to market. What HPC brings to these environments (and you can see from the examples that measures of scale in HPC are designed to fit to the needs of the customer – not supersized for all) is an ability to run more jobs, more jobs simultaneously and faster, with more precision and fidelity, more cost effectively and on an on. As an ‘as a service’ platform, HPC is a critical tool in the industrial arsenal - as critical to your bottom line as its technology peers within your mainline business ops. Nailed the hardware but now the challenge is scaling the software; licensing, etcTechnology itself is still not likely to follow a perfect linear path – so what you want to factor is working with partners that can help influence and support the broad spectrum of the technology adoption and innovations.Source: CoC/IDC Reveal report, 2008.
Dell believes strongly in figuring out new and innovative way to deliver these capabilities to all of our customersMeaning that … as an ‘as a service’ platform … it comes in all shapes and sizes. Intelligent Light is one of themIntelligent Light – is a Consultancy service based out of New Jersey. It has about 20 consultants who provide optimized software and post processing services for CFD workloads and clients. Together with R-Systems, a long-time partner, Intelligent Light has seen a 20x increase with HPC on Demand; For Intelligent Light the increase in performance and turn-around means an increase to their bottom line in terms of consultancy delivery and bookingsImproved CFD workflow and data management – for key brands such as Trek, Wilson … Red Bull technologies (yes a competitive racing team to Caterham … Interesting that they are sourcing through Intelligent Light for some of their work … knowing that they chose another brand over ours, some years ago). Anyway – the point is that a small firm can be a huge service delivery source without absorbing the huge service platform directly. They can focus on their core expertise. Also a great example of that broad and cross industry collaboration and usage we talked about.
We have not talked much about cloud today but it is inevitableOur approach is consistent with how we got here – collaborate with the best of the bestThe two preeminent HPC cloud hosting providers are standardized on Dell and part of their sales processThey love what they do tooIntelligent Light outsources it’s compute needs through Champaign, Illinois-based partner R Systems NA - (R Systems) delivers “cloud bursting” solutions, providing secure access to dedicated, partitioned nodes for execution on-demand via the cloud. -What’s more – they (RSystems) were the first “cloud” on the Top 500 (and stemmed from the NCSA); all Dell based. -R Systems provides services to a great number of customers; even helped initialize the vision of Stephen Wolfram; Wolfram|Alpha etc (homework helper) – scientific google, which also now runs on dedicated Dell systems. Check it out. What Intelligent Light, Caterham and RSystems show … is that a small firm can make a profound impact….
What does precision medicine mean?This slide describes and illustrates what “personal” and “precision” medicine means in the context of treating cancer with examples listed in the chart. Drastic improvements can be made in short periods of time with the proper personalized treatment delivered in a clinically relevant amount of time, as seen in the images on the right. The majority of the cancer research conducted today is focused on adults. The Dell/TGen collaboration is special because it is the first FDA approved clinical trial for children with neuroblastoma.
HPC is personal. To all of us. And it is a matter of life … TGEN’s data intensive sequencing makes all the difference to children diagnosed with neuroblastoma. They have been conducting a clinical neuroblastoma trial to overcome the complexity and clinical heterogeneity inherent in most common cancers in children. What this also represents is the entry into personalized medical treatment. What we see, in our day jobs, is efforts like TGEN or Virginia BioInformatics; or a cross collaboration all the way through to Harvard and beyond. This is everyday life for us. TGEN originally shared resources with ASU. Problem was that the queue time for TGEN really was the difference between life (and another four letter word) for kids.The Transfer of data volumes in the trial was prohibitively slow.Working very closely with them, our own industry recognized luminary, Dr. Glen Otero, was able to delivery a 12 fold increase in processing. For TGEN that meant cutting days, weeks on genome data processing – where every second matters. In the future this work will help physicians prescribe the right drug for each patient.Talk about the size and complexity of the dataset (put it in terms people can understand) to analyze the patient’s tumor, identify differences between the tumor genome and the normal genome that gives insights into vulnerabilities we might be able to address with therapeutic interventions. What the trials mean in terms of helping find drugs that are exactly right for each individual so treatment can be based on what is seen at the molecular level rather than some ambiguous classification. The genetic profiling at TGEN using next-generation sequencing technologies, is incredibly data intensive and requires a tremendous amount of computational horsepower …
Which led to influencing the internal designs to support the external needs … such as the DSU Current data analysis time was 7 days. Goal is 5 days.Worked with TGen to parallelize their RNA-Seq pipeline; Benchmarked several systems (M620, M420, R720)Our PowerEdge M420 blades provided the best GFLOPS/U and GFLOPS/WResult was that One 10U chassis of 32 x M420s was able to complete RNA-Seq pipeline in 1 hour. We took the 5 days TGEN hoped for to 1 hour delivered.TGen’s new system - optimized next gen seq apps- will include:96 nodes; 360 TB HSS (Lustre scratch space for data analysis); 36 TB NSS (Primary storage for /home and applications); CIFS gateway to HSS (to facilitate transfer of sequencing data to HSS) over 10 GigE and Infiniband, complete with Backup & Archive storage tiersThere are also multiple options including high memory nodes (up to 1.5 TB) and even a path for microprocessor/accelerator nodesWhat the TGEN design represents is a showcase in price/performance/footprint/watt; it also highlights the flexibility in designs capabilities as much as designing to absolute performance. Andwill represent even more and new breakthroughs … name them if you can Glen … and then transition back to Tim. TIM: Taking the experience of experts like Glen, Jeff, Mark, Frank, Martin … etc … taking the experience of the last ten years (in Dell) and a lifetime in HPC and helping position Dell’s future … FOR US … HPC is the RIGHT ANSWER, RIGHT AWAY …
Differentiation – we have talked today about commodity clusters that are standards based – how do we differentiate?We are proud to have the broadest, most innovative set of customers in the industryTheir gift to us is the ability to build and incredible knowledge base We also build public private linkagesPeople ask me why Dell has not acquired an HPC company and it is because the most valuable asset in the HPC space is the customer base and what we learnWe bought Exanet, Ocarina and others but they merely augment what we learn
So if you are trying to determine the next best steps to take, here are a few simple suggestions …Internal and external collaboration Internal: embrace expertise – rocket-star scientist and developers – work with them to identify scope and resource requirements; plan to future including licensing and options over 5yrsExternal: When you identify your own inner mad Scientists – you will want a partner pairing … someone with expertise from compute, storage – especially networking expertise – and particularly as you push to cloud, and big data, remote visualization; data analytics become common practices … What we bring to the table is expertise. Solutions we deliver to customer ARE converged infrastructure – from porting from your desktop development environment to help w/External collaborations … ISV’s, research centers, etc., and beyond. When you want to HPC we hope you’ll consider us in your next RFC … (REQUEST FOR COLLABORATION)
You can meet a few of our industry gurus while you’re here … we’ll be around … make sure to stop by and see the TACC presentation …
And in the event you want more than convention center coffee Goes from simple to advanced boolean search … (to find seriously best)Of note: more than 3.3 million jobs that rely on GPS technology, including approximately 130,000 jobs in GPS manufacturing industries and 3.2 million in the downstream commercial industries;adoption rate is growing and expected to continue growing across industries and create $122.4 billion benefits per year; directly affect more than 5.8 million jobs downstreamIt fits in your pocket, on your dash … on your desktop or in your datacenter … it’s HPC
