Intel Xeon Phi Clusters for HPC

Many-Core High Performance Computing with Xeon Phi Processors

Intel Xeon® Phi™ processors provide more efficient performance than traditional CPUs. They include many more and smaller cores, many more threads, and wider vector units well suited to highly parallel workloads. NumberSmasher-Phi clusters leverage the Intel Xeon Phi 7200-series “Knights Landing” processors. Combined with Intel Omni-Path interconnect, and the rest of the Intel Scalable Systems Framework, Xeon Phi is part of the ideal design for many-core, scale-out HPC supercomputers.

Installed Software

Microway NumberSmasher-Phi clusters come preinstalled with:

  • Linux distribution of your choice, including Red Hat, CentOS, or SuSE
  • Intel HPC Orchestrator, OpenHPC, or Microway Cluster Management Software (MCMS™)
  • Intel Parallel Studio XE compilers & tools (including Intel Math Kernel Library [MKL])
  • User-level application and library installations are available for truly turn-key HPC
