 Design and Evaluation of a 2048 Core Cluster System

(In Proceedings of 3rd KiCC Workshop 2007, presented in Aachen, Germany, RWTH Aachen, Dec. 2007)


Designing a 2048 core high performance cluster, including an appropriate parallel storage complex and a high speed network, under the pressure of limited budget (2.6 Mio Euro), performance, thermal and space limitations is really a challenging task. In this paper, we present our design decisions and their reasons, our experiences during the installation stage as well as performance numbers using well-known benchmarks in the field of scientific computing, networking and I/O, and real world applications.
