Celebrating its success in high-performance computing (HPC), Lenovo (SEHK:0992) today announced the completion of its second phase deployment at CINECA — a world class HPC research resource with the capabilities to become a leading artificial intelligence compute resource. The company also strengthened its position in the high performance computing space maintaining its #1 HPC vendor ranking in China while becoming the #2 vendor in the world in terms of total systems included on the TOP500 list. Committed to HPC innovation, Lenovo also today unveils a new generation of solutions that extend HPC benefits to a wider spectrum of users than ever before. The new offerings include: Antilles— an OpenSource Graphical User Interface (GUI), that simplifies system management, and the new Lenovo Distributed Storage Solution (DSS)— a new family of Scalable Storage Infrastructure solutions for file and object storage. The Next Phase of CINECA: Game Changing Technology Now Online for Researchers Phase one of CINECA, an academic consortium, was completed in May 2016 - coming in at 1.7 PFLOPs, which at the time was the largest Intel® Omni-Path Fabric system in the world. Lenovo and CINECA are pleased to announce the delivery and installation of phase two, a 3,600 node Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor (formerly code-named "Knights Landing") system which is interconnected with 100Gb Intel Omni-Path fabric - delivering 6.2PFLOPs of performance. Dubbed Marconi by CINECA, the installation is expected to be one of the largest SuperComputers in Europe and will be online for researchers to transform data into new insight across such disciplines as physics, chemistry, astronomy, medicine, and urban planning. Leveraging the Lenovo maintained OpenSource Extreme Cluster/Cloud Administration Toolkit (xCat) for system management, CINECA's Marconi system houses the core tools which will enable it to become one of the premier machine learning and artificial intelligence systems in the world.
