Oracle Solaris (Sun) Studio at ISC 2010



International SuperComputing Conference, that congregation of ultimate-geeks, celebrated 25 years this week in Hamburg, Germany. It is perhaps the largest HPC event of the year. Sun / Oracle Solaris Studio was well-represented there with a poster and a full talk.

Some highlights of the event are noted below:
  • Record number of attendees (about 1800), presenters (225) and exhibitors (151)
  • A new list of  Top500 SuperComputer sites was released at the same time.
  • Sun (Oracle) now has 4 of the Top15 and 10 of the Top100 systems installed with over 250,000 installed cores and 2.5 petaFlop of performance. The highest ranked system is Texas Advanced Computing Center/Univ. of Texas at #10 and Sandia Labs at #11
  • There will be an ISC Cloud Conference in the same location in October. This clearly understates the importance of Cloud Computing to HPC and the Supercomputing community.
This is the poster that represented Oracle Message Passing Toolkit. I figured you might find the graphic instructive. The poster highlights the Open MPI library, along with Performance/MPI Analyzer Tool, which together with Oracle Solaris (Sun) Studio constitute High Performance MPI support for x64 and SPARC systems.
