Penguin Computing, a division of SMART Global Holdings, Inc., has announced TrueHPC, an end-to-end, enterprise-supported high-performance computing solution powered by Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) and NVIDIA Mellanox HDR InfiniBand networking to deliver a workload-optimized HPC infrastructure, that scales to meet any workload and accelerates time to innovation across HPC initiatives.
Penguin Computing TrueHPC delivers a complete software, hardware and management platform built on compute-optimized hardware and Scyld Clusterware orchestration software, the company explains. TrueHPC leverages technologies from AMD, NVIDIA and others to enable a complete technology ecosystem in support of each workload.
TrueHPC provides cluster management tools that allow customers to quickly and easily provision technical compute environments, and to efficiently monitor and manage them. TrueHPC can be implemented as a standalone solution or in combination with other Penguin Computing solutions and reference architectures for data, artificial intelligence, analytics and Cloud.
“Building the right infrastructure and planning for the future of an HPC resource is challenging and complex for new HPC users and seasoned practitioners alike,” says Kevin Tubbs, Ph.D., and senior vice president, Strategic Solutions Group at Penguin Computing. “For more than two decades, Penguin Computing has been helping customers to design, build, and support custom HPC architectures. In collaboration with our partner NVIDIA, we’re continuing to meet the evolving technical requirements of the most demanding, data-driven workloads.”
“The HPC industry has evolved dramatically with the massive proliferation of data and corresponding increase in demand for more ways to access and power AI and HPC workloads,” says Gilad Shainer, senior vice president of networking at NVIDIA. “Penguin Computing’s choice to power TrueHPC with NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand networking will provide Penguin Computing users best-in-class performance and scale for building and deploying HPC systems that are future-proofed for tomorrow’s needs.”
With the launch of Penguin Computing’s four dedicated technology practices, TrueHPC is an integral part of the HPC Practice. The HPC Practice delivers targeted, modular, and complementary HPC architectures that improve performance and utility while lowering the barrier to adoption. Penguin Computing will shorten time to insight and discovery by removing the complexities involved in designing, deploying, supporting and operating HPC infrastructure.
Penguin Computing TrueHPC will be available in mid-fiscal Q1 2021.
