Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family begins the new era of recommended Intel® Scalable System Framework (Intel® SSF) configurations which provide the balanced computing solutions to help solve the next phase of industry and research challenges. Using a recommended combination of Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family, Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors, Intel® Omni-Path Fabric, Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre* software, Intel® SSD Data Center Family, or Intel® software tools for HPC enables systems to achieve exceptional performance and to efficiently and reliably scale to increasingly larger system sizes.
HPC systems using recommended Intel® SSF configurations utilize a recommended combination of Intel® SSF compute, memory/storage, fabric, and/or software elements in a balanced system design.
Developed to support a variety of system designs and workloads, Intel® SSF reference architectures will detail baseline HPC system hardware and software requirements which will help enable broad software application portability.
Intel® SSF reference designs will document specific HPC reference systems, including hardware and software elements and technologies, and contain installation and configuration instructions.
Traditional high performance computing is hitting a performance wall. With data volumes exploding and workloads becoming increasingly complex, the need for a breakthrough in HPC performance is clear. Intel® Scalable System Framework provides that breakthrough. Designed to work for small clusters to the world’s largest supercomputers, Intel® SSF provides scalability and balance for both compute- and data intensive applications, as well as machine learning and visualization. The design moves everything closer to the processor to improve bandwidth, reduce latency and allow you to spend more time processing and less time waiting.
Intel® Scalable System Framework is a holistic solution for developing high performance, balanced, efficient and reliable HPC systems. It combines Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family, Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors, Intel® Omni-Path Architecture, Intel® solutions for Lustre* software and more, all in a scalable and customizable architecture.
Delivering new dimensions of scalability, from small clusters to the world's largest supercomputers.
Designed for both compute-intensive and data-intensive application requirements, as well as machine learning and visualization.
Providing unprecedented levels of integration helps to ensure CPU, memory, I/O, and storage all work in harmony.
Enabling reduced power, improved performance, and greater reliability through higher levels of integration with fabric interface and memory into Intel® processors.
Preserve your investment in legacy software and coding expertise.
Moving HPC building blocks closer to the processor greatly shortens the distance data must travel, improves bandwidth, and reduces latency.
