The Making Sense of AI Machine
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced that it has received more than $ 160 million to build a supercomputer called LUMI in Finland LUMI will be funded by the European Joint Undertaking EuroHPC, a joint high-performance computing collaboration between governments The supercomputer will have a theoretical peak performance of over 550 petaflops and is expected to overtake the best performing petascal computer at the RIKEN Center for Computational Science Fugaku, which reached 4,155 petaflops in June 2020
Powerful computers allow researchers to undertake large volumes of calculations in epidemiology, bioinformatics, and molecular modeling that can take months on traditional computing platforms (or years if done by hand). these computers are available in the cloud, they allow teams to collaborate from anywhere in the world.For example, the information generated by the experiences can help advance our understanding of key aspects of COVID-19, such as the viral-human interaction, viral structure and function, small molecule design, drug reuse, and patient trajectory and outcomes
HPE says LUMI, which will be hosted at the Finnish Computing Center for Science in Kajaani, Finland, will feature HPE Cray EX servers with AMD Epyc processors and high performance AMD Instinct graphics cards It will also use the storage system HPE Cray ClusterStor E1000 and HPE Slingshot technology for networking, plus liquid cooling capabilities to minimize power and water consumption
LUMI will be powered by hydropower from Vattenfall, a European renewable energy company owned by the Swedish state As previously announced, utility provider Loiste Lämpö will transfer some of the heat generated by LUMI to homes and Kajaani commercial buildings
When LUMI becomes available in mid-2021, it will be shared by a newly formed consortium which includes Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland Previously, HPE announced plans to expand its supercomputer supply chain by manufacturing liquid-cooled Cray EX supercomputers and Apollo systems at its plant in Kutná Hora, Czech Republic. At the same time, the company intends to create a center of excellence to provide research and development tools and other high performance computing solutions.
LUMI is the second system EuroHPC has awarded to HPE following the Euro_I4TI system for the IT4Innovations national computing center in Ostrava, which is expected to be the most powerful supercomputer in the Czech Republic Yesterday, HPE revealed that ‘it would also supply the Pawsey Supercomputing Center for Western Australia’s $ 34 million supercomputer
