Fujitsu introduces new Supercomputer for SCD/ITC

Oakleaf-FX meets SCD/ITC's requirement for system-wide power consumption of 1.4MW or less

By CBR Staff Writer

Japanese information and communication technology (ICT) company Fujitsu has completed construction of the new supercomputer for the Supercomputing Division of the University of Tokyo’s Information Technology Center (SCD/ITC).

The new Oakleaf-FX system employs Fujitsu’s PRIMEHPC FX10 supercomputer, the petaflops-class systems that deliver improved efficiency, as low as 1.4MW for overall system power consumption.

The new system will be used in High-Performance Computing (HPC) education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, helping organisations in the field of computational science.

SCD/ITC has selected PRIMEHPC FX10 as it delivers enhanced energy-efficiency performance and meets the University’s requirement for system-wide power consumption of 1.4MW or less.

Oakleaf-FX system’s calculation nodes use a PRIMEHPC FX10 configuration comprised of 4,800 nodes (50 racks) and the system enhances Fujitsu’s technology used in the K computer. It includes theoretical peak performance 1.13 petaflops and memory capacity 150TB.

The supercomputer’s peripherals include a 74 PRIMERGY x86 servers, 234 ETERNUS storage systems, Technical Computing Suite, which is HPC middleware for peta-scale systems and FEFS, a distributed file system that is a component of the Technical Computing Suite.
