The Ohio Supercomputer Center recently displayed the power of its new Owens Cluster by running the single-largest scale calculation in the Center’s history.
Scientel IT Corp used 16,800 cores of the Owens Cluster on May 24 to test database software optimized to run on supercomputer systems. The seamless run created 1.25 Terabytes of synthetic data.
Big Data-specialist Scientel developed Gensonix Super DB, a software designed for big data environments that can use thousands of data-processing nodes compared to other database software that use considerably fewer nodes at a time. Scientel CEO Norman Kutemperor said Genosonix Super DB is the only product designed and optimized for supercomputers to take full advantage of high performance computing architecture that helps support Big Data processing.
“This is a wonderful testimonial of the capabilities of Genoxonix Super DB for Big Data,” Kutemperor said. “The robust nature of the OSC Owens Cluster provided the reliability for this large parallel job.”
To demonstrate the power of Genosonix Super DB, the Scientel team created a sample weather database application to run using OSC’s Owens Cluster. For this rare large run, Scientel used 600 of the system’s available 648 compute nodes. The Owens Cluster has additional nodes dedicated to GPU use and data analytics, for a total of 824 nodes on the Dell-built supercomputer. During the run, the Owens Cluster reached a processing speed of over 86 million data transactions per minute with no errors.
