InfiniBand to accelerate U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory's new supercomputer

InfiniBand in-network computing acceleration technology to enable the new 8 petaflop supercomputer to deliver highest applications performance and scalability.

Mellanox Technologies' InfiniBand has been chosen to accelerate the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL) new supercomputer. The new 8 Petaflop system named "Eagle" will consist of more than 2100 nodes and deliver 3 times the performance compared to NREL's current supercomputing platform. Eagle will be put into production in January 2019.


"InfiniBand's smart In-Network Computing acceleration engines, RDMA technology, and high reliability and robustness will ensure the highest performance, efficiency and scalability for NREL's HPC, AI, storage, cloud and other applications," said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "We are happy to be part of the NREL new supercomputing platform, helping to advance the leading edge of energy research."


"The Eagle supercomputer will enable NREL's researchers to run increasingly detailed models that simulate complex processes and phenomena, to gain new insights and innovations in energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies," said Steve Hammond, NREL's Computational Science Director at NREL.
