IBM Roadrunner – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

IBM Roadrunner

Roadrunner components

Roadrunner was a supercomputer built by IBM for the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, USA. The US$100-million Roadrunner was designed for a peak performance of 1.7 petaflops. It achieved 1.026 petaflops on May 25, 2008 to become the world’s first TOP500 Linpack sustained 1.0 petaflops system.[2][3]

In November 2008, it reached a top performance of 1.456 petaflops, retaining its top spot in the TOP500 list.[4] It was also the fourth-most energy-efficient supercomputer in the world on the Supermicro Green500 list, with an operational rate of 444.94 megaflops per watt of power used. The hybrid Roadrunner design was then reused for several other energy efficient supercomputers.[5] Roadrunner was decommissioned by Los Alamos on March 31, 2013.[6] In its place, Los Alamos uses a supercomputer called Cielo, which was installed in 2010. Cielo is smaller and more energy efficient than Roadrunner, and cost $54 million.[6]

IBM built the computer for the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration.[7][8] It was a hybrid design with 12,960 IBM PowerXCell 8i[9] and 6,480 AMD Opteron dual-core processors[10] in specially designed blade servers connected by Infiniband. The Roadrunner used Red Hat Enterprise Linux along with Fedora[11] as its operating systems and was managed with xCAT distributed computing software. It also used the Open MPI Message Passing Interface implementation.[12]

Roadrunner occupied approximately 296 server racks[13] which covered 560 square metres (6,000sqft)[14] and became operational in 2008. It was decommissioned March 31, 2013.[13] The DOE used the computer for simulating how nuclear materials age in order to predict whether the USA’s aging arsenal of nuclear weapons are both safe and reliable. Other uses for the Roadrunner included the science, financial, automotive and aerospace industries.

Roadrunner differed from other contemporary supercomputers because it was the first hybrid supercomputer.[13] Previous supercomputers only used one processor architecture, since it was easier to design and program for. To realize the full potential of Roadrunner, all software had to be written specially for this hybrid architecture. The hybrid design consisted of dual-core Opteron server processors manufactured by AMD using the standard AMD64 architecture. Attached to each Opteron core is a PowerXCell 8i processor manufactured by IBM using Power Architecture and Cell technology. As a supercomputer, the Roadrunner was considered an Opteron cluster with Cell accelerators, as each node consists of a Cell attached to an Opteron core and the Opterons to each other.[15]

Roadrunner was in development from 2002 and went online in 2006. Due to its novel design and complexity it was constructed in three phases and became fully operational in 2008. Its predecessor was a machine also developed at Los Alamos named Dark Horse.[16] This machine was one of the earliest hybrid architecture systems originally based on ARM and then moved to the Cell processor. It was entirely a 3D design, its design integrated 3D memory, networking, processors and a number of other technologies.

The first phase of the Roadrunner was building a standard Opteron based cluster, while evaluating the feasibility to further construct and program the future hybrid version. This Phase 1 Roadrunner reached 71 teraflops and was in full operation at Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2006.

Phase 2 known as AAIS (Advanced Architecture Initial System) included building a small hybrid version of the finished system using an older version of the Cell processor. This phase was used to build prototype applications for the hybrid architecture. It went online in January 2007.

Supermicro® FatTwin(TM) Takes Center Stage at International Supercomputing Conference …

New 4U, 8/4 Node FatTwin(TM) Joins Supermicro’s SuperBlade, GPU Platforms, SuperWorkstation, 4-Way and Twin Architecture Solutions Highlighting Supermicro’s Supercomputing Solutions for HPC

HAMBURG, Germany- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, will debut its newest innovative architecture, FatTwin(TM) at ISC, giving the public its first hands-on look at the future of power-efficient supercomputing. The FatTwin is a new 4U high-performance, high-capacity platform that offers versatile configurations for HPC with multi-node models that support dual 135W Intel Xeon E5-2600 processors, up to 8 hot-swap 3.5″ HDDs in 1U and up to 8 GPUs in 2U. This new architecture is also designed to operate in high ambient temperatures providing greater performance while reducing cooling infrastructure costs.

“Many factors affect the successful implementation of scalable supercomputing solutions, and obtaining maximum performance within budget and power constraints is the most challenging task,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “At Supermicro, we emphasize not only the highest-performance in our HPC solutions, but also the overall energy efficiency and optimal power-usage effectiveness (PUE) of our complete systems. Supermicro’s new architectures such as FatTwin integrate the latest CPU, GPU and storage technologies with advanced high-efficiency digital switching power supplies and free-air cooling designs for maximum performance and increased operational temperature ranges up to 47 degrees C that eliminate costly air conditioning. Our expertise in server design and thermal management reduces our customer’s TCO and offsets operating expenses providing more budget for mission critical compute performance.”

Supermicro’s new FatTwin expands on their widely adopted 1U and 2U Twin SuperServer lines and adds a new series of 4U systems that offers the industry’s best capacity and efficiency in a standard 19″ rack ready solution. The FatTwin is now shipping in high-compute density 4U 8 and 4 node configurations supporting dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 processors, up to 512GB of 1600MHz memory and up to 12 hot-swap 2.5″ SAS/SATA HDDs per U in the 8 node or up to 8 hot-swap 3.5″ SAS/SATA HDDs per U in the 4 node configuration. These systems also offer PCI-E 3.0 expandability and optional 56Gbps ConnectX-3 FDR InfiniBand or 10GbE connectivity. The real highlights of these systems reach beyond their high-performance and capacity with an earth friendly focus on energy efficiency and resulting cost savings. The FatTwin is designed to operate in extreme ambient temperature range (0 degrees C to 47 degrees C), free-air cooled environments, effectively eliminating the need for costly air-conditioning. The Twin architecture based multi-node solutions feature shared power and cooling resources reducing costly components and cabling, resulting in optimized air-flow and maximizing energy utilization. Combined with Supermicro’s redundant Platinum Level high-efficiency (95%+) digital switching power supplies, the FatTwin delivers maximum compute density and energy efficiency for today’s most demanding supercomputing needs. FatTwin is a versatile platform and additional models will be released in early Q3 2012 offering solutions optimized for GPU supercomputing and Big Data/Hadoop analytics.

Exhibits at the show include Supermicro’s wide range of X9 Intel Xeon E5-2600 based platforms optimized for HPC. SuperBlade offers various blade configurations with a 56Gb FDR InfiniBand switch for high-speed interconnectivity. The GPU Blade SBI-7127RG provides the highest compute density with 20 GPUs and 20 CPUs in 7U and the double-density TwinBlade SBI-7227R-T2 provides 20 DP (dual-processor) server nodes with 40 CPUs in 7U.
