D9.3.3: Report on prototypes evaluation

Lennart Johnsson, Gilbert Netzer
2013 Zenodo  
The objective of Work Package 9 task 3 is to assess and make recommendations to the PRACE RI for joint developments with industrial partners to develop highly energy efficient HPC components and systems, as well as power and cooling technologies. WP9 has carried out this task through evaluation of a number of prototypes targeting novel approaches to HPC server and system design with many prototypes having some degree of direct industry involvement or support. Prototype efforts assessed the use

Two prototypes focused on novel approaches to scalability of I/O systems in support of Exascale systems and their energy efficiency. Technologies assessed included integration of I/O nodes into the MPP or cluster interconnect fabric, the use of flash technology, scalable disk systems and virtual tape libraries based on disk systems with spun down idle disks. Data management in file systems, in particular the management of large numbers of small files, was also addressed with the I/O-prototypes. One prototype evaluation assessed the issues and benefits of integrated cooling solutions for hot water cooling. The findings of the evaluations of prototypes looking at HPC server architectures is that 1) an optimized FPGA implementation of matrix-multiplication can offer a 5 – 10 times higher energy efficiency than an x86 software solution, 2) an optimized implementation of matrix multiplication on the DSP can yield about half the energy efficiency gain of an FPGA implementation, 3) the first and second generation x86+GPU CPUs are not competitive in regards to energy efficiency even with standard x86 CPUs fo [...]

D9.3.4: Final Report on Prototype Evaluation

Lennart Johnsson, Gilbert Netzer
2013 Zenodo  
This report supplements deliverable D9.3.3 and covers future technology prototype efforts from March 2013. Three prototype efforts not reported on in D9.3.3 are fully reported here: the ARM based NVidia Tegra3 with NVidia Kepler GPU acceleration prototype at BSC; the energy recovery prototype using immersive cooling techniques at PSNC; and the results from the Advanced Multi-level Fault Tolerant prototype. Additional results are provided for the x86+GPU prototype at CaSToRC, the DSP prototype

The DSP results show that for the benchmarks that were well optimised the observed energy efficiency for the DSP was in line with the nominal energy efficiency that can be derived from specifications. Thus, the energy efficiency is comparable to that of GPUs and better than that of x86 CPUs. Furthermore, the DSP does not require a host processor. In fact, the 40 nm DSP used is, for the optimised benchmarks, more energy efficient than correspondingly optimised codes for the 22 nm Intel Ivy Bridge. ARM Coretx-A9 CPUs are not energy efficient for HPC workloads, but nodes using powerful and energy efficient acceleration, such as the NVidia Kepler, can form part of a viable HPC node. Due to late delivery of the relevant prototype only preliminary results are available at this time. The shared memory prototype is based on standard x86 servers and a node add-in card for cache coherency. This prototype clearly demonstrated that, though a very large shared memory address space is supported, it is a NUMA architecture and paying proper attention to the memory architecture is necessary for good performance. One of the lessons learnt in the project is that delivering energy efficiency advantages for architectures different from x86 architectures requires well-optimised codes also for the non- x86 architectures, i.e. for significant energy efficiency gains at the application level resource use [...]

BioExcel Deliverable D1.4 - Long-term hardware software assessment for pilot applications and general community

Future software and hardware development will have a significant impact on all areas of scientific computing including the Life Sciences. Upcoming extreme-scale compute platforms will offer great opportunities for tackling important, large- scale scientific questions. In this document we update our previous analysis of the pre-exascale landscape from the perspective of biomolecular simulation software, including the pilot codes of BioExcel. These are largely unchanged from our previous

Our findings are generally unchanged, and already well publicized among the European HPC stakeholders via several working groups which are involved in the development of EuroHPC, the newly updated PRACE Scientific Case, the ETP4HPC Strategic Research Agenda, and the EXDCI (http://exdci.eu) project in which BioExcel is leading the Life Science working group. Bio-molecular simulation scientists in industry and academe require effective and usable simulation software that runs well on the hardware resources they can access now. This software must be portable to emerging platforms, because we cannot afford to replace it to run well at the exascale. When we achieve this, we will be able to support the design of new drugs on scales impossible today, obtain better understanding of biochemical pathways, and open new doors for further innovation. This deliverable gives an overview of what we currently see as potential directions and then implementation plans for each of the pilot codes that will suit those directions.

Statins as anti-inflammatory agents: A potential therapeutic role in sight-threatening non-infectious uveitis

Rose Gilbert, Ahmed Al-Janabi, Oren Tomkins-Netzer, Sue Lightman
2017 Porto Biomedical Journal  
In addition to the known lipid-lowering effects, statins are now widely accepted to have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects. Adjunctive use of statins has proven beneficial in the context of a wide range of inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis. Evidence also suggests that statins may also have utility in the management of uveitis, a form of sight threatening inflammation which occurs in the eye. In this article, we outline our rationale behind a clinical trial of
