  1. 1. Making Supercomputing More Available and Accessible Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 Beta 2 Microsoft High Performance Computing April, 2010
  2. 2. The Landscape 2
  3. 3. The landscape In a world with an insatiable and Supercomputing power helps growing appetite for data scientists, engineers and analysts computational performance is extract meaning from the data critical. Science, industry and deluge, speeding research, government alike now face the development and discovery. problem of too much information. Continued increases in processing power are now only possible by increasing the number of cores per chip—a hardware issue just became a software problem. 3
  4. 4. Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 makes supercomputing broadly available and accessible to the scientists, engineers and analysts who need it most Takes Makes advantage of Offers world supercomputing existing class simple to technology performance manage and investments and easy to use skills 4
  5. 5. Today’s Milestone: Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 Beta 2 5
  6. 6. Sustained HPC Services for Commitment to Excel 2010 Performance Momentum Cluster of Interoperability Workstations Momentum 6
  7. 7. Sustained commitment to performance Windows matches Linux performance on ANSYS FLUENT 12.0, other benchmarks 1800 1600 Fluent Rating (Higher is better) 1400 1200 1000 Courtesy of ANSYS, Inc 800 Windows 600 Linux 400 200 0 8 16 32 64 128 256 Number of CPU Cores Reference: Dataset is External Flow over a Truck Body, 14M cells, public benchmark. ANSYS FLUENT 12.0 data to be posted at http://www.fluent.com/software/fluent/fl6bench/new.htm. Same hardware configuration (IBM System x® iDataPlex™ platform with 2.66GHz Intel® Xeon® Processor 5500, 24GB DDR3 memory per node, Mellanox Connect- X® InfiniBand) was used for both Windows HPC Server 2008 and Linux runs. Deep engagement within the Top500, including mixed CPU/GPGPU clusters 7
  8. 8. Sustained commitment to performance Maximizing parallel HPC applications Integration with Windows HPC Server 2008 R2: MS-MPI, Interactive SOA-based applications, HPC Services for Excel 2010 Parallel Computing Platform: Makes parallel programming easier and more productive GPU computing: NVIDIA Parallel Nsight 1.0 accelerates CPU + GPU application development Extensive third party support for Visual Studio: Intel Parallel Studio Development Toolkit plug-ins, OpenMP support 8
  9. 9. Cluster of workstations Expand the capacity of HPC clusters while increasing the return on existing technology investments by utilizing desktop cycles as part of overall HPC infrastructure New ability to add Windows 7 workstations as compute nodes View and monitor workstations the same as dedicated compute nodes Time of day scheduling for workstation availability Draining interval for graceful preemption 9
  10. 10. Interoperability momentum Windows and Linux HPC working together Microsoft collaborates with industry-leading HPC management companies to enable hybrid solutions, helping organizations get more out of HPC investments and provide broader access to HPC resources. MOAB Adaptive HPC Suite works with Windows HPC Server to intelligently allocate jobs across Linux and Windows, scaling Windows HPC Server as necessary. Rocks+ Hybrid dual boot solution allows easy deployment of Windows HPC Server alongside Linux on shared hardware. Platform ISF Adaptive Cluster allocates Windows and Linux HPC resources dynamically based on policies and current workload demand. 10
  11. 11. Interoperability momentum Hybrid HPC clusters Dual Boot HPC Clusters Dynamic HPC Clusters 11
  12. 12. HPC Services for Excel 2010 momentum Top systems integrators and consultants including Wipro, Infusion and Grid Dynamics are now ready to help customers increase business agility and accelerate time to results by easily transitioning desktop calculations to Windows HPC computations. Microsoft Excel is frequently used as the programming environment for computation and simulations. HPC Services for Excel 2010 helps enable: Better business decisions by running larger, more sophisticated models Faster response to market trends and more competitive advantage, by reducing total time to results Easier regulatory compliance Life Insurance Actuarial workbook examples 1700 records that took 14 hours now take 2.5 minutes 1 million records that took 7.5 days now take 2 hours 12
