Scientific advancement is increasingly driven by the available compute power while the world’s largest supercomputers are limited by their power consumption.

The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and London-based Maxeler Technologies are collaborating in a project funded by the UK Department of Business Innovation and Skills to install the next generation of supercomputing technology in a new facility at the Daresbury Laboratory focusing on energy efficient supercomputing and offering orders of magnitude improvement in performance and efficiency to enable UK industry to have the edge in using a technology designed for the move towards Exascale computing.

The dataflow supercomputer will feature Maxeler developed MPC-X nodes capable of an equivalent 8.52TFLOPs per 1U and 8.97 GFLOPs/Watt, a performance per Watt that tops the Green500 today. MPC-X nodes build on the previous generation technology from Maxeler deployed at JP Morgan where real-time risk computation equivalent to 12000 x86 cores was achieved in 40U of dataflow engines.

STFC Technology Division Head, Dr Peter Oliver said “The use of MPC-X technology builds on the expertise of STFC’s Scientific Computing Department and allows us to develop energy efficient High Performance Computing applications meeting the needs of our academic and industrial collaborators.”

The new MPC-X supercomputer will be available in Summer 2014 and will allow UK industry and academia to develop products and services based on MPC data analytics engines for applications domains such as medical imaging and healthcare data analytics, manufacturing, industrial microscopy, large scale simulations, security, real-time operations risk, and media/entertainment.

Prof Michael J Flynn, Chairman of Maxeler Technologies and Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University said: “Multiscale Dataflow Computing came out of early research funded by the US government and it is exciting to see a first deployment in a national laboratory in the UK. Combined with our collective efforts as part of the OpenSPL consortium, we at Maxeler are excited to see spatial computing at the forefront of next generation computing technology.”

Predictive simulations and analytics are hard and require significant expertise. STFC Applications Performance Engineering Group Leader, Dr Mike Ashworth said: “Ever more accurate prediction capabilities based on advanced data analytics will help the UK to be more aware, and consequently more prepared for the future.”

We live in an Era of Convergence of scientific and commercial computing. Power consumption determines the life of your battery and so makes novel energy efficient applications a necessity in healthcare, entertainment, management of natural resources, and finance.

It is expected that advanced real-time capabilities derived from the dataflow supercomputer will in time help to reduce healthcare expenditure, increase efficiency of manufacturing processes, help with the exploration and management of natural resources and drive the next generation of digital entertainment such as the new 4K video standard.

“Maxeler Technologies is excited and proud to have the opportunity to collaborate in the STFC outreach to industry, ensuring the world-leading position of the UK as a world center of innovation and technological leadership,” said Oskar Mencer, CEO of Maxeler Technologies and Member of Academic Staff at Imperial College London.
