Mellanox White Paper - Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) Model Port to Windows: Preliminary Report

The Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) project is a multi-year/multi-institution collaboration to develop a next generation regional forecast model and data assimilation system for operational numerical weather prediction (NWP) and atmospheric research. Under this project – a collaboration between The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Microsoft Corporation, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., and The Portland Group, Inc (PGI) – a prototype version of WRF has been developed and demonstrated running in parallel using MPI on an AMD Opteron™ dual-core processor based server running Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003, Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack,. This preliminary report describes progress and issues encountered in porting WRF to an HPC cluster running Windows, using Microsoft Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA) and the PGI Fortran compiler.

Mellanox White Paper - LS-DYNA® Best-Practices: Networking, MPI and Parallel File System Effect on LS-DYNA Performance

From concept to engineering, and from design to test and manufacturing, the automotive industry relies on powerful virtual development solutions. CFD and crash simulations are performed in an effort to secure quality and accelerate the development process. The recent trends in cluster environments, such as multi-core CPUs, GPUs, cluster file systems and new interconnect speeds and offloading capabilities are changing the dynamics of clusteredbased simulations. Software applications are being reshaped for higher parallelism and multi-threads, and hardware configuration for solving the new emerging bottlenecks, in order to maintain high scalability and efficiency. In this paper we cover best practices for achieving maximum productivity through MPI optimizations, efficient networking utilisation and usage of parallel file systems.

Mellanox White Paper - TIBCO, HP and Mellanox High Performance Extreme Low Latency Messaging

With the recent release of TIBCO FTL TM, TIBCO is once again changing the game when it comes to providing high performance messaging middleware. Many solutions have emerged to try and provide next generation systems with extreme low latency but they are doing this by sacrificing the traditional features and functions that mission critical middleware solutions require. TIBCO’s approach is to offer a middleware solution that offers extreme low latency without sacrifice, allowing for the scalability not only to meet the demands for low latency data distribution but also to meet the demands as the application grows from a few instances to thousands of instances.

Mellanox White Paper - SX1024: The Ideal Multi-Purpose Top-of-Rack Switch

As new data center applications are used, new solutions are required to meet the demand for higher throughput, without increasing the power consumption or cost. Mellanox’s SX1024 is an optimal top-of-rack switch (ToR) with 48 1/10GbE SFP+ ports and 12 QSFP interfaces which can operate at 1/10GbE, 40GbE or 56GbE speeds. The SX1024 enables non-blocking throughput between the rack and the aggregation layer, which makes it the optimal-performing switch for storage environments, high performance computing, Hadoop, and any other enterprise data center.
