Dell’s HPC Momentum Drives Customer Success and System Innovation

It’s been an extraordinary month for Dell on the HPC front. We’re seeing excellent momentum in HPC, as can be witnessed by the announcements and recent customer successes announced leading up to and at the ISC High Performance 2016 conference.

First, we had the pleasure of helping one of our customers and partners, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin, celebrate three significant milestones—a $30 million award from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the 15th anniversary of TACC, and the dedication of a new building for advanced computing at their JJ Pickle Research Campus.

With the NSF award, TACC will deploy a new supercomputing system, “Stampede 2,” as a strategic national resource to provide HPC capabilities for thousands of researchers across the U.S. This Dell HPC System, based on Dell PowerEdge servers equipped with 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Phi processors (KNL), will push the envelope of computational capabilities, enabling breakthroughs never before imagined. Stampede 2 will deliver peak performance of up to 18 petaflops, twice the performance of Stampede, which impressively is the 12th fastest system in the world three and half years after its inception, according to the June 2016 TOP500 list.  An initial system, Stampede-KNL, has been delivered to TACC in a collaboration between Dell and Intel, providing early access to systems with Xeon Phi processors.  The system was ranked #117 on the June 2016 TOP500 list.
