InfiniBand Accelerates New Large Scale Supercomputer at Forschungszentrum Jlich

Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced that InfiniBand
accelerates the new supercomputer at Forschungszentrum Jülich in
Germany. JUWELS, the new system, delivers twelve petaflop of peak
performance and is interconnected by EDR 100G InfiniBand, with a planned
partial upgrade to HDR 200G InfiniBand later in 2018. The JUWELS
supercomputer, which is scheduled for further extension in late 2019, is
operated by Jülich Supercomputing Centre as a member of the Gauss Center
for Supercomputing (GCS), the alliance of the three German national
supercomputing centers, providing computing power to German and European
users. InfiniBand’s high-speed data throughput and smart In-Network
Computing engines help the Jülich supercomputer to meet the diverse
requirements of its user communities in a most effective and
cost-efficient way.

“We are excited that our long term collaboration with the Jülich
Supercomputing Centre has resulted in building several world-leading
supercomputers over the years,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of
marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “EDR InfiniBand and the planned
upgrade to HDR will enable Jülich users to leverage the best
interconnect and smart accelerations technology for highest applications
performance, scalability and robustness.”

Mellanox’s intelligent and In-Network Computing capabilities
incorporated in EDR and HDR InfiniBand solutions enable advance data
processing and real time analytics, which result in world-leading
applications performance and scalability.

“The new supercomputer needs to serve many applications and users within
Germany and across Europe, and therefore needs to be highly efficient
and equally versatile,” said Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of Jülich
Supercomputing Centre at Forschungszentrum Jülich. “EDR InfiniBand and
the upcoming HDR InfiniBand equip us with the best technology to
maximize our supercomputer performance and provides an optimal
foundation for the upcoming extension of JUWELS with a
scalability-focused Booster component. We look forward to continuing our
deep and successful collaboration with Mellanox on this path.”
