Fueling Insight to Reach New Depths of Discovery
As the quest for resources becomes increasingly complex and costly, your most valuable natural resource becomes time. Intel® Scalable System Framework (Intel® SSF) is the high-efficiency, high performance computing (HPC) architecture you need to get the most out of exploration, production, and your HPC investments.
High-Efficiency Imaging and Simulations
Over 70 percent of today's oil comes from mature fields where extraction is difficult. From initial reservoir research to final well abandonment, every element must perform optimally to maximize profit. It's not unlike your high performance computing (HPC) solution. Benefits of compute power can't be realized when issues like fabric bottlenecks or storage walls pinch performance. You need a system-level approach. Every piece of your HPC solution must balance to reach peak system performance so you are always ready for data-intensive workloads like real-time imaging, high-fidelity 4D modeling, and seismic analytics.
"Integration is the key direction, the common thread over time, for how we advance supercomputing."
—Al Gara, Intel Fellow, Lead High Performance Computing (HPC) Solution Architect, Intel
To 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 Adapters. 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.
Intel® Scalable System Framework Makes HPC More Accessible
A system-level solution for all HPC needs, Intel® SSF delivers more performance, throughput, scalability, and balance across your HPC system.
