Pedraforca Cluster to be First to combine ARM CPUs, GPUs, and InfiniBand

Today the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) announced plans to deploy its next-gen ARM prototype cluster for HPC in July. Powered by ARM Cortex-A9, Nvidia Tesla K20 GPUs, and Mellanox QDR InfiniBand, the hybrid supercomputer will be named Pedraforca.

By using InfiniBand, Pedraforca enables direct GPU-to-GPU communication through RDMA on ARM. It features a low-power Nvidia Tegra® 3 (4-core Cortex-A9) to run the operating system and drive both the Tesla K20 accelerator and the QDR InfiniBand at the minimum power consumption.
