Poland's Marie Curie-Skłodowska University recently deployed a high-performance computing (HPC) cluster based on SuperMicro SuperBlade* servers and powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series. Intel® architecture provides the performance and flexibility required to support a diverse range of projects, tasks, and software codes. Intel® compilers were also used to optimize code and deliver even greater performance increases. The university is already evaluating the benefits of rolling out another HPC cluster based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family.
“Here at the university, we work on a diverse range of projects and tasks that rely on many different types of codes,” explained Paweł Bryk, chemistry lecturer at Marie Curie-Skłodowska University. “For example, the parallel programs that run our molecular dynamics research scale well on multi-core architecture, while our other applications require great single-core performance.”
