RSC Group and Cornelis Networks sign a partnership for Russian market expansion expand
RSC Group, a Russian developer and integrator of ultrahigh-dense energy-efficient solutions for High Performance Computing (HPC) and Cornelis Networks, a provider of high performance fabrics for HPC and Artificial Intelligence (AI) signed up a business partnership agreement to expand on Russian HPC market.
Alexey Shmelev, COO at RSC Group comments: ‘We hope that RSC and Cornelis could continue to support existing Omni-Path customers in Russia and provide a competitive choice with new high performance fabric solutions to meet their growing needs.'
Ian Wardrope, vice president sales EMEA at Cornelis Networks states: ‘We are very pleased to continue our relationship with RSC Group, and see significant joint opportunities in the Russian HPC market. As an independent company, our sole focus is on the design and development of high performance fabric solutions providing support for all CPU architectures and GPU accelerators.'
New generation of RSC Tornado solutions are oriented on a wide range of demanding scientific research workloads and applied tasks. The updated portfolio of integrated software-defined and reconfigurable solutions targets classic HPC systems, efficient storage and data processing and will help create AI/ML/DL (Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning) systems. RSC Tornado solution provides the industry highest x86 architecture computing density of 967.45 Tflops per rack (+37 perc ent on the previous generation), 2.45PB distributed RSC Storage on-Demand per rack (+36% increase on the previous generation) with 3.67 TB/s IO bandwidth and leading energy efficiency with 100 per cent 'hot water' liquid cooling of all electronic components, horizontal scalability from small systems with a few servers to huge clusters or server farms containing many thousands of server nodes. RSC Tornado solutions provide additional cost optimization benefits through the support of open standards and new server products.
RSC Tornado solution based on 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (up to 40 cores, TDP 270W), Intel Optane persistent memory 200 series, Intel SSDs and high-speed fabric 200 Gb/s has leading footprint and computing density (up to 153 nodes in one standard 42U rack), high energy efficiency and provides stable operation of computing nodes in “hot water” mode with cooling agent temperature up to +65°C at inlets of switching nodes and interconnects. Operation in 'hot water' mode enables all-year free cooling (24x365) using only dry coolers running at ambient air temperature up to +50°C, and complete elimination of chillers. As the result, the average power usage efficiency factor (PUE) is less than 1.04.
