Life sciences increasingly relies on massive data sets and compute-intensive workloads to find breakthroughs that may not have been possible just last year. The National Institute of Heath, now generates and analyzes 1.5PB of data per month on its internal work alone. Life science applications and workloads are diverse, high performance computing (HPC) solutions must handle a variety of scientific data: Genomics, molecular imaging, molecular modeling/simulation, and many others. Your HPC solution must be flexible enough to deliver both compute performance and data-intensive throughput. Balanced, system-level performance that gets results—and gets them in the accelerated timeframes our world demands today and tomorrow.
“Intel® Scalable System Framework (Intel® SSF) is a single, broadly configurable framework, designed to meet requirements for both compute speed, and data intense throughput—from a hardware and software perspective over multiple generations of systems”.
— Mark Seager, Intel Fellow, CTO for Technical Computing Ecosystem
To help you do that, Intel® SSF harnesses the power of next-generation Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family, Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors, Intel® Omni-Path Fabric (Intel® OP Fabric), and Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter. All in a framework that is highly integrated, configurable, and scalable—now and into the future. We also harness the power of our OEM partners. Ensuring products always advance HPC, while controlling your costs and protecting your HPC investment.
A system-level solution for all HPC needs, Intel® SSF delivers more performance, throughput, scalability, and balance across your HPC system.
Intel® SSF is part of a larger effort to make HPC more accessible. We are working with the HPC ecosystem and our partners to advance HPC while also making it mainstream. From research facilities and Fortune 500 companies to medium-size businesses and even consumers, the power of HPC should be available to those who wish to explore, discover, develop, and experience amazing.
