We will be featuring two Intel products at several events this fall. Among the products are Intel’s latest Xeon Scalable Processors (Skylake) and Intel Omni-Path Architecture (OPA). If you can’t make the events, both Intel Xeon Scalable Processors and Omni-Path are available for a free test drive on our demo cluster. To see the full list of integrated products or to sign up visit: https://www.nor-tech.com/solutions/hpc/demo-cluster/.
Intel Xeon Scalable processors enable synergy among compute, network and storage. They optimize interconnectivity with a focus on speed without compromising data security. Highlights include:
• Optimized Performance: New features such as Intel Advanced Vector Extension 512 (Intel AVX-512) improve with workload-optimized performance and throughput increases for advanced analytics, HPC applications and data compression.
• More Efficient Operation: High-speed Integrated Intel Ethernet (up to 4x10GbE) helps reduce total system cost. It also lowers power consumption and improves transfer latency of large storage blocks and virtual machine migration.
• Improved Security: Users can deploy hardware-enhanced security to protect data and system operations without compromising performance.
Intel Omni-Path Architecture (OPA) drives exa-scale computing. It is designed to provide:
• Features and functionality at both the host and fabric levels to greatly raise levels of scaling
• CPU and fabric integration necessary for the increased computing density, improved reliability, reduced power and lower costs required by significantly larger HPC deployments
• Fabric tools to readily install, verify and manage fabrics at this level of complexity.
