CU-CCMS selects Voltaire to provide high performance computing system

It also enables good connectivity between the server fabric and the storage systems

By CBR Staff Writer

Clemson University Computational Center for Mobility Systems has selected Voltaire Grid Director InfiniBand switches and 10Gb ethernet gateways for a high performance computing system based on products from Sun Microsystems.

According to Voltaire, the 35 teraflop system provides a high performance computing infrastructure to address design, development and research issues for automotive and general mobility manufacturers. Computational simulations that previously required many weeks of processor time are now completed within hours, saving time and costs.

The factory-integrated Sun HPC system consists of 43 Sun Blade 6000 Modular Systems with Sun Blade X6250 server modules, in addition to Sun Fire servers, Sun SPARC Enterprise servers and Sun StorageTek systems, all interconnected with a high-performance, low latency 20 Gb/s InfiniBand fabric from Voltaire.

Voltaire’s Grid Director 2012 and Grid Director 9024D switches provide all of the server and external blade connectivity and Voltaire’s 10Gb ethernet gateways provide high-performance connectivity between the server fabric and the storage systems. By connecting the servers and storage with 10Gb ethernet and 20 Gb/s InfiniBand throughput, the Voltaire unified fabric accelerates performance of the many CAE applications running on the system.

James Leylek, executive director Clemson University Computational Center for Mobility Systems (CU-CCMS), said: We are impressed with the quality and performance of the Voltaire switches. They have been an important factor in the success of our mission to serve the automotive, aviation, and energy industries.
