Lockheed Martin Orders Up Appro Supercomputer for Army Research Lab

 Appro has been comparison for a second time to support a High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) to urge supercomputing capabilities

MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 9 —  Appro (http://www.appro.com), a heading provider of supercomputing solutions, currently announced that it has been awarded a subcontract for a 303.23TF Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer for a second time by Lockheed Martin in support of a DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP). The HPCMP supports DoD objectives to strengthen inhabitant inflection by advancing vicious technologies and imagination by use of High Performance Computing (HPC).

This represents a multi-million dollars endowment for a hybrid computing complement and will be deployed to US Army Research Laboratory, ARL. As a subcontractor, Appro will yield complement integration, plan supervision and onsite installation. Lockheed Martin, as a primary executive will yield on-site upkeep and administration support. The Xtreme-X Supercomputer will be used by ARL for mobile ad hoc network (MANET) make-believe and experimentation.

“We are intensely gratified to work with Lockheed Martin once again and be partial of providing modernized supercomputing imagination to support a DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP),” pronounced Steve Lyness, Vice President of HPC Solutions Group for Appro. “Lockheed Martin leads a attention in creation and has lifted a bar for shortening costs while enhancing product peculiarity for this critical supervision program, and Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer has a ideal pattern to accommodate their requirements.”

The Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer consists of 274 nodes with dual processors per hollow with a sum of 6,576 cores formed on a new AMD “Interlagos” processor and 204,288 cores formed on NVIDIA Tesla™ GPU computing. This hybrid complement is configured with Appro ACE Management nodes, sub-management nodes, NFS storage server, CPU usually discriminate nodes, login nodes and CPU+GPU discriminate nodes. The complement is upheld by vast memory for softened altogether opening and faster make-believe results. As configured and deployed, a whole complement provides 303.23Tflops sum rise opening with 234.84Tflops powered by striking nodes and a serviceable memory ability bandwidth of some-more than 17.54 Terabytes. The Appro Xtreme-X also offers a overpass directly to a tellurian together record complement permitting entrance to a storage record complement from all of a discriminate nodes. All discriminate and striking nodes in a complement are to be companion by a single-rail 10GigE interconnect to accommodate a customer’s needs for low latency and multicast capabilities with easy wire designation and management. The complement is designed to optimize building space, power, and cooling mandate regulating air-cooling record with platinum-rated energy reserve and high-efficient fans, integrated with console supervision server capabilities. The Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer will also be pre-configured with Appro’s HPC Software Stack to embody open source growth collection and Appro Cluster Engine (ACE) remote supervision apartment that will yield server, cluster, storage and network supervision facilities using on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

The Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer will be bureau integrated by Appro’s turn-key System Delivery Integration Services to embody on-site designation and reward support services for allege collection replacement.

“AMD is vehement to combine with Appro on a Xtreme-X Supercomputer resolution that Lockheed Martin has selected as a substructure for this deployment,” pronounced Paul Struhsaker, corporate clamp boss and ubiquitous manager, Commercial Business during AMD. “The core-dense AMD processor codenamed “Interlagos” is optimized for performance, scalability and potency for high opening computing applications that will concede business like Lockheed Martin to urge supercomputing capabilities.”
