Introducing the “Brick”, the New Modular, Accelerated, Water Cooled Aurora HPC Architecture

SESSION: Hardware and Architecture

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums

TIME: 1:30PM - 2:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Judicael A. Zounmevo

Presenter(s):Giovanbattista Mattiussi, Paul Arts



Eurotech presents their new Aurora Brick HPC architecture, which provides the basis for the new line of water cooled products presented at SC14. Eurotech designed this architecture to be very modular, dense and energy efficient. In this way, Eurotech aims to tackle some of biggest challenges HPC is facing, offering a vertical special purpose HPC system that maximizes performance, minimizing energy consumption and space, with the same degree of flexibility of a generic purpose architecture.
The basic concepts behind the Brick are modularity and boosting, so the possibility to considerably speed up both execution and storage, using multi-acceleration and fast storage, easily combined together by playing on the configuration of the HPC system through different PCIe modules.
The Brick architecture supports a line of products that will use Intel, Nvidia and ARM (Applied Micro) as processors and co-processors in their first release, expected soon after SC14.
