Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 Supports HPC Facility: Study

Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus builds a new supercomputer based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family

The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) at Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus (Daresbury SIC) recently unveiled a world leading high-performance computing (HPC) facility for the UK scientific community. IBM System x iDataPlex* dx360 M4 servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors E5-2670 provide data-intensive computing performance, while a software virtualization layer offers a unique, dynamically-assigned shared-memory capability. Already up and running, the HPC facility supports a broad range of research projects.

Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 Family High-Performance Computing Driving innovation and growth

Challenges
• Cash injection. Using a UK government investment, the SFTC wanted to build a new HPC facility to drive growth and innovation across a range of disciplines

• Two objectives. SFTC wanted the HPC facility to be easy to use while performing extremely data-intensive computing

Solutions
• Compute density. Deployed 512 nodes comprising IBM System x iDataPlex dx360 M4 servers powered by Intel Xeon processors E5-2670 and running on a Red Hat* Linux operating system

• Unique capability. Platform computing HPC scheduling software, together with ScaleMP Versatile SMP* (vSMP*) architecture, is enabling the STFC to dynamically assign large shared-memory domains

Impact
• World-class facility. The new supercomputer is already supporting research into advanced manufacturing, life sciences, energy and the environment, and the digital economy

• Future growth. Expected to generate new research collaborations, driving UK growth and innovation
