Georgia Tech accelerates drug discovery with new IBM supercomputing cluster

pute nodes. The supercomputer forms the basis of the IBM Cluster 1350, a pre-packaged and tested super-cluster that is ultra-dense and easy to manage.

"AMD64 technology delivers the processing power needed to run some of the most demanding supercomputers, without sacrificing performance-per-watt efficiencies," said Kevin Knox, vice president, Worldwide Commercial Business, AMD. "By working closely with IBM on their AMD Opteron processor-based BladeCenter cluster, we feel confident that researchers at Georgia Tech will be better equipped to execute against demanding timelines and ultimately help bring critical drugs and research to market even faster."

The technology from IBM also includes 28 terabytes of IBM DS4800 storage and 20 terabytes of IBM DS4100 storage to house the large volumes of research data and provide a disaster recovery backup. Force10 TeraScale E-Series family of switch/routers are also integrated into the IBM BladeCenter cluster to provide resilient interconnectivity enabling predictable cluster performance and scalability that will allow Georgia Tech to seamlessly expand its cluster.

"Network resiliency is key to ensuring computing cycles are not interrupted and that researchers gain the reliable computing power they need to efficiently analyze massive amounts of data," said Marc Randall, president and CEO at Force10 Networks. "IBM has taken its leading server technology and combined it with our leading switch/router in a single high performance cluster solution to provide organizations like the Center for the Study of Systems Biology with the computing power they require to for advanced scientific research."

Also included with the solution is IBM Rear Door Heat eXchanger (code named "Cool Blue,") a technology component that can use the existing chilled water supply for air conditioning systems already located in the majority of customer datacenters to reduce server heat emissions into the room by up to 55 perc
