QCT Intel® Select Solution for Simulation and Modeling combines its best-in-class servers

Simulation and modeling applications, such as computer-aided engineering (CAE) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), are designed to run on scalable, high-performance clusters. To support those applications at scale, modern high-performance computing (HPC) systems require multi-core processors, high-bandwidth fabrics and broad input/output (I/O) capabilities.

Because of the complexity and variety of technologies available on the market, assembling an HPC system can be time consuming, requiring additional effort for research, evaluation and deployment. In addition, integration and configuration of selected components can impact the performance of the solution. The level of expertise required to properly configure the combined solution can intimidate small and medium organizations. Even larger enterprises considering the benefits of HPC clusters must weigh the time and effort it takes to ramp up capabilities. These barriers slow down adoption of HPC clusters even though the return on the investment (ROI) can be significant.

QCT (Quanta Cloud Technology) QxSmart HPC/DL Solution for Simulation and Modeling provides a fast path for purchasing and deploying a cluster for simulation and modeling workloads. This solution consists of a pre-validated selection of components designed to meet the demands of HPC applications and workflows. These systems provide the capabilities and agility needed to support a range of different workloads and reduces or eliminates the need for multiple single-purpose systems. In addition, the performance of key system characteristics are verified for Intel Select Solutions for Simulation and Modeling at both the node and cluster level.

QxSmart HPC/DL Solution is a cutting-edge High Performance Computing (HPC) / Deep Learning (DL) solution that integrates adaptive hardware with software stacks and vertical applications. To meet the needs of a variety of industries and scenarios, QCT has developed a starter kit with workload packages and comprehensive software tools that complies with OpenHPCTM conventions. This starter kit takes the guesswork out of buying and deploying a system, putting the focus squarely where it needs to be: on using the cluster for higher productivity and better performance.

QCT Intel® Select Solution for Simulation and Modeling combines its best-in-class servers with high-bandwidth and low-latency interconnect and Intel Omni-Path switch, providing a scalable cluster architecture for supercomputing users. With QCT’s starter kit customers reduce the time and effort spent on project implementations, for a variety of industries, from molecular dynamics, climate modeling to quantum chemistry. Users can now simplify IT administration, speed up productivity with intelligent workload management and achieve faster time-to-value.
