iPOTT moving towards green supercomputing

  1. 1. 16-Feb-12 iPOTT Getting you there… Moving towards Green SuperComputing In this article I have highlighted trends in supercomputing andTech Trends how advancement in central electronics complexes of a computing system such as the introduction of Graphics processor units has created a new wave of technology growth in arriving at petaflop-class heterogeneous supercomputers toTo visit this blog Click here. perform advanced computing.iPOTT being an end to end GPU or a Graphics Processor Unit was first introduced byprovider of innovative and cost NVIDIA in 1999. It was since then that computer graphicseffective services in the areas of emerged with a new meaning. GPUs are extensively used inknowledge management, sales Games, Visual effects in movies, 3D designs or modeling andenablement and consulting offers high performance computing such as the petaflopa unique and unbiased platform supercomputers. The combination of CPU with GPU hasfor software product companies resulted in increased efficiency, and many recentworldwide to reach their target supercomputers are integrating these two to arrive at energymarkets efficient designs which are climate friendly. According to the latest Green500 list in November 2011, five www.ipott.com of the top 10 energy efficient supercomputers belonged to info@ipott.com IBM and employed the idea of using many low-powered processors like IBM BlueGene/Q or using energy efficient accelerators such as NVIDIA GPUs complemented with CPUs from Intel and AMD. It has been found that supercomputers employing GPUs for acceleration have shown significant increase in efficiency. The overall idea of integrating GPU with CPU to arrive at a “heterogeneous supercomputer” is that, parallel GPUs can be used for performing graphics and data intensive bits of programming while CPUs can be used for sequential bits of programming. 1|P a g e DN: 007/TT/2012 Copyright © 2012 iPOTT
  2. 2. iPOTT Getting you there… According to NVIDIA’s recent reports, 5 of the top 10 world’s most efficient systems and 22 of the top 30 efficient systems combine GPUs with CPU.Tech Trends According to December 2011 reports from Indian Institute ofWe have blogs targeting a range of Science, Bangalore the fastest in India is EKA created byaudience starting from potential Computational Research Laboratories, Pune and can go uptoproduct innovators to CEOs (RPeak value) 172.60 TeraFlops. Reports from Centre for Development of Advanced Computing or CDAC in July 2009Audience interested in knowing indicated that they were building a new high-speed PARAMabout Marketing Strategy, Indian which is likely to break the 1 PetaFlop barrier in 2012.IT trends and Best Practices to beadopted while kick-starting According to IDC, Indian HPC market is estimated to be aroundcompany can utilize the $200million and is growing at an annual rate of 10%. Asinformation provided in these researchers are realizing the ease of cutting cost, increasingblogs efficiency and performance by adopting hybrid computing there is a massive potential for growth in this area.To visit this blog Click here.
