KTH selects Mellanox end-to-end EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand solutions

Mellanox Technologies Ltd of Sunnyvale, CA, USA and Yokneam, Israel, a supplier of end-to-end InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions and services for data-center servers and storage systems, says that its EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand solutions have been selected by Sweden's KTH Royal Institute of Technology for use in its PDC Center for High Performance Computing.

The PDC Center provides HPC services to Swedish academia as part of the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC), as well as internationally via the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) infrastructure. Services include supercomputing and storage resources plus assistance from a range of application experts.

Mellanox says that its robust and flexible EDR InfiniBand solution offers higher interconnect speed, lower latency and smart accelerations to maximize efficiency and will enable the PDC Center to achieve what is claimed to be world-leading data-center performance across a variety of applications, including advanced modeling for climate changes, brain functions and protein-drug interactions. The PDC Center is the latest deployment of Mellanox EDR InfiniBand technology to validate its expanding global adoption. The increasing use of InfiniBand technology was first illustrated in the TOP500 Supercomputers List in June 2015, with more than 50% of those included utilizing InfiniBand.

"Incorporating Mellanox's latest technology ensures that PDC will continue to provide top-level and consistent performance for our researchers throughout the system's lifetime," comments PDC Center's technical director Daniel Ahlin.
