As an Intel Select Solutions Provider for Simulation and Modeling, we have been working with Intel for a while now to develop what we agree is one of the finest HPC clusters for simulation and modeling on the market today.
Simulation and modeling applications, such as computer-aided engineering (CAE) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), are designed to run on scalable, high-performance clusters. To support those applications at scale, modern high-performance computing (HPC) systems require multi-core processors, high-bandwidth fabrics and broad input/output (I/O) capabilities. Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors:
• Offer high scalability for high-performance computing clusters
• Deliver performance gains for enterprise virtualized infrastructure compared to previous-generation processors
• Achieve exceptional resource utilization and agility
• Enable improved data and workload integrity and regulatory compliance for data center solutions
The NT-HPC Simulation and Modeling Cluster comprises several key hardware and software components: Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, the Intel® Omni-Path Architecture (Intel® OPA) HPC fabric for latency-sensitive workloads, and other Intel® technolo¬gies that benefit HPC applications. Component choices deliver optimized performance for MPI-based simulation and modeling applications. Supportability is also addressed with the inclusion of Intel® Cluster Checker and Nor-Tech’s own branded NT-EZ Cluster Support Solutions, which provide expert systems support to streamline processing.The full product brief is below!
