SPEC awards, HPC

More 2009 SPECtacular awards. SPEC released an update to our MPI2007 benchmark of Message Passing Interface performance. It allows evaluation of MPI-parallel, floating point, compute intensive performance across a wide range of cluster and SMP hardware. MPI2007 continues the SPEC tradition of giving HPC users the most objective and representative benchmark suite for measuring the performance of SMP (shared memory multi-processor) systems. The update, provided at no cost to existing MPI2007 licensees, improved compatibility, stability, documentation and ease of use. SPEC gave awards to:

  • Brian Whitney of Sun Microsystems for meticulous care as release manager in scheduling, and putting it all together,

  • Carl Ponder of IBM for the development and management of documentation, especially with respect to the run rules, FAQ, and the configuration file.

  • HÃ¥kon Bugge of Platform Computing for outstanding testing skills during the benchmark development.

SPEC award recipients, High Performance Computing

More SPECtacular awards given at SPEC's 2008 annual meeting in San Francisco, these to members of the High Performance Group. As before, I won't post anyone's name without permission, but you know who you are and SPEC is grateful for your contributions. SPEC MPI2007 is SPEC's benchmark suite for evaluating MPI-parallel, floating point, compute intensive performance across a wide range of cluster and SMP hardware using the Message-Passing Interface (MPI).  SPEC recognizes
They all played a big role in the creation of this benchmark, which extends SPEC's offerings of real world relevant measures of high performance computing performance to this important software architecture, and providing better metrics for evaluation of cluster and shared memory systems.
