University of Coimbra Tests Intel® True Scale Fabric Performance

University of Coimbra Tests Intel® True Scale Fabric Performance

Since 1290, the University of Coimbra has been one of Portugal’s leading higher education institutions. Its 24,500 students are supported by eight faculties, with study subjects ranging from art to engineering. The university is also the founding member of the Coimbra Group of European research universities. Wanting to provide some of the best possible research tools to students and industry research projects, the university tested the new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2680 with Intel® True Scale Fabric based on InfiniBand* to underpin and connect its server cluster and key applications.

Technology Results
• Execution speed. Chroma* and Hybrid Monte Carlo* (HMC*) applications were sped up almost 16-fold when using 16 nodes connected by InfiniBand
• More capacity. Intel True Scale Fabric based on QDR-80 doubles the node bandwidth capacity and increases message passing interface rate by a factor of seven

Business Value
• Growth potential. Core applications can run more simulations and support more users when running on a compute cluster with more nodes that is supported by Intel TrueScale Fabric based on QDR-80
• Higher quality. Scientists can generate higher standards of research to drive the university’s competitiveness and good reputation
