Numascale, Supermicro, and AMD Announce the World’s Largest Shared Memory System to Date

System features 5184 cores and 20.7 TBytes of shared memory, and handles massive amounts of data for Big Data Analytics.

NEW ORLEANS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 20, 2014 — Numascale today announced the successful installation of a large shared memory Numascale/Supermicro/AMD system at a customer datacenter facility in North America. The system is the first part of a large cloud computing facility for analytics and simulation of sensor data combined with historical data.

The recently installed Numascale system consists of 108 Supermicro 1U servers connected in a 3D torus with NumaConnect™. Each server has 48 cores in three AMD Opteron™ 6386 CPUs and 192 GBytes memory, providing a single system image and 20.7 TBytes to all 5184 cores. The system was designed to meet user demand for “very large memory” hardware solutions running a standard single image Linux OS on commodity x86 based servers.

“Supermicro’s 1U 4-way servers ( AS-1042G-LTF) with HyperTransport (HTX) connectivity provide users with flexible computing resources, including capabilities for handling very large data sets” said Tau Leng, Vice President of HPC at Supermicro.

“AMD is proud to have been selected to participate in this exciting project,” said Suresh Gopalakrishnan, General Manager and Corporate Vice President, Server Business Unit, AMD. “This collaboration with Numascale and Supermicro brings together the right technologies to solve the challenging problem of large shared memory implementation.”

Einar Rustad, CTO of Numascale, agrees. “Using low cost x86 hardware, the single memory image cluster provides both shared memory — including threads and OpenMP — and MPI programming options,” he said. NumaConnect™ operates on AMD Opteron™-based servers and can provide up to 256 TBytes of system-wide shared memory using cache coherency logic. At any size system administration is identical to that of a single server because there are no separate node images to maintain and distribute.”
