OSC's Oakley Cluster delivers on performance efficiency
Date:5/30/2012

The Ohio Supercomputer Center's newest system would fall within the top half of the list of the world's most powerful supercomputers based purely on speed, but the cluster would rank even higher ninth in the United States and second among U.S. academic institutions when comparing benchmarked performances against the maximum theoretical performance of the system.

"Major investments, such as the one made to purchase the new HP/Intel supercomputer, must be made carefully," noted Jim Petro, chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents the state agency that created the Ohio Technology Consortium to oversee the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and other statewide technology resources. "These benchmark statistics show me that we've not only given our researchers a powerful resource with this investment, but also have given Ohio taxpayers a great value."

OSC engineers recently opened the Oakley Cluster to general users after they benchmarked the performance of their new system, based on 694 HP ProLiant SL390 G7 servers. The engineers compared their benchmark results with the latest list of the world's fastest supercomputers, generated twice each year by the TOP500 project. The international project was started in 1993 to provide a reliable basis for tracking and detecting performance trends in supercomputing. Based on the comparisons, OSC's new system would rank as the 180th fastest supercomputer in the world, 89th in the United States and 11th among U.S. academic institutions.

More interestingly however, using additional data compiled by TOP500 project, OSC engineers analyzed how well the supercomputers on the list performed in the benchmark tests, compared to the maximum theoretical performance of the machine.

In those comparisons, the Oakley Cluster ranked much higher 22nd in the world, 9th in the United States and 2nd among U.S. academic institutions.

"What these performance efficiency findings tell us is that HP and O
