SDSC Announces Largest Installation of IBM Technology
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) announced Tuesday it has completed the largest installation to date of IBM's high-performance switch. As part of the center's new DataStar supercomputer, the new system represents the next-generation solution of IBM technology for SDSC.
According to Phil Andrews, director high-performance computing at SDSC, the new device permits the creation of "true systems for capability computing as opposed to loosely coupled clusters."
SDSC has migrated to an IBM eServer pSeries infrastructure of POWER4 systems running the AIX 5L operating system, in an effort to increase teraflop performance and scalability. The aim is to enable the center's researchers to work on numerous projects for institutions and academic centers across the country simultaneously. SDSC serves a national community of scientific researchers through the center's allocated user system and the National Science Foundation's Partnerships for Advanced Computational Infrastructure program.
