High performance computing

  1. 1.   Maximize your IT resources with HPCInformation on this slide comes from a public white paper provided by Dell, found at: https://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/HPC/hpc-for-everyone-wp.pdf
  2. 2.  High-performance computing (HPC) enables IT departments to harness massive computing power by distributing the workload across many computers  Instead of investing in a “supercomputer”, you combine the power of multiple PC-based “commodity servers”  For more on Dell HPC solutions visit here.Information on this slide comes from a public white paper provided by Dell, found at: https://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/HPC/hpc-for-everyone-wp.pdf
  3. 3. Schematic of a basic HPC clusterInformation on this slide comes from a public white paper provided by Dell, found at https://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/HPC/hpc-for-everyone-wp.pdf
  4. 4.  Genetic and molecular modeling  Forecasting sales trends  Educational research  Multi-organizational projectsInformation on this slide comes from a public white paper provided by Dell, found at https://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/HPC/hpc-for-everyone-wp.pdf
  5. 5.  The Master Node (or central coordinator) distributes the workload to the computers working on the HPC network  The Compute Nodes are the individual computers processing the data from the master nodeInformation on this slide comes from a public white paper provided by Dell, found athttps://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/HPC/hpc-for-everyone-wp.pdf
  6. 6.  Microsoft Windows Server  Red Hat Enterprise Linux  Organizations can customize the system to correspond with their current OS investmentInformation on this slide comes from a public white paper provided by Dell, found at https://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/HPC/hpc-for-everyone-wp.pdf
  7. 7.  Rack servers – maximizes data center efficiency into a small space  Blade servers – high processor density with central power managementInformation on this slide comes from a public white paper provided by Dell, found at https://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/HPC/hpc-for-everyone-wp.pdf
  8. 8.  A flop is floating point operations per second – a computing performance measurement  Gigaflop = 109 operations per second Once you have an estimate of how many FLOPS your HPC system must support, you can choose your systemInformation on this slide comes from a public white paper provided by Dell, found at https://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/HPC/hpc-for-everyone-wp.pdf
  9. 9.  Total Capacity (measured in terabytes)  Raw Throughput ( measured in gigabytes per second)  Storage solutions are designed to be paired with Storage Area Networks (SANs), built over fiber-optic networks to keep data moving quicklyInformation on this slide comes from a public white paper provided by Dell, found athttps://marketing.dell.com/Global/FileLib/HPC/hpc-for-everyone-wp.pdf
