FRANKFURT, Germany, June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- From June 19 to 23, 147 famous exhibitors, over 400 speakers and over 3,000 professionals in the field of high performance computing are participating in the 31st International Supercomputing Conference (ISC 2016), held in Frankfurt, Germany. As in previous years, Sugon, China's most senior provider of high performance computing technology products and services, is displaying its innovative technology products at Booth No. 928. But this time, Sugon and two international giants -- Intel and Mellanox -- jointly witnessed the appearance of new products that are "taking application as the core."
Sugon launches two new server products
With the theme of "innovation returns to original intention, application recreates value," today Sugon and Intel jointly released the first high density converged architecture server product facing cloud computing, the Galaxias SDC1000. The server faces typical application demands of cloud computing, adopts an elastic, heterogeneous and simplified as needed design concept that has the characteristics of software-defined architecture, modular design, high density, high scalability, high performance/watt, high performance/cost and so on, and is a converged architecture landmark server product after rack-mounted servers and blade servers.
According to Nie Hua, senior vice president of Sugon, the Galaxias SDC1000 server integrates 32 Intel Xeon D processors with FPGA-based accelerators, DDR4/3 memory, 10/40/100G Ethernet, NVMe/SATA/SAS drives, and virtualization PCIe I/O devices in a high density 4U standard chassis. A 3D-Torus system area network based on high performance and high scalability achieves the elasticity, efficiency and demand-based simplicity of the system through software-defined mode. The Galaxias SDC1000 directly inherits the application environments of traditional servers. Applications such as Hadoop and Spark, in addition to resources scheduling software and server administration tools can be ported to SDC1000 without modification. Its performance/watt and integrated service capacity are improved by ten times than that of a traditional server, so the product is a converged architecture server with low cost, low power, high density and high performance.
It's worth mentioning that the Galaxias SDC1000 is a new generation server jointly developed by Sugon and some famous colleges, research institutes and chip and semiconductor device manufactures at home and abroad under the support of the National High-Tech Research and Development Plan of China (863 Program). Centering on the Galaxias SDC1000, the industrial-academic-research-application ecological chain is forming in China to cooperate with CETV, China Telecom and China Unionpay to conduct demonstration applications. Today, Sugon is carrying out a close cooperation with international partners to research and develop advanced technology for the next generation of servers.
Multi-Hosted Multi-Processors (M-Pro), another product of "application as core" designed and developed by Sugon, was also jointly released and launched by Sugon and Mellanox at ISC2016. The new server product adopts "M-Pro architecture" based on Multi-Host technology, so as to improve servers' capabilities in solving various requirements of high performance computing.
Dr. Dai Rong, chief engineer of the high performance computing product business division of Sugon, said that "M-Pro architecture" design servers with achieve practical application performance, better price performance and stronger compatibility by adopting the Intel Xeon E3-1200 v5 series processor of the latest Skylake architecture and advanced Multi-Host shared network technology and existing high density blade technology of Sugon. Designed for the practical application of customers, M-Pro architecture server has remarkable advantages of higher actual application performance with the same theoretical peak performance and better actual application performance at the same investment. According to benchmarks, M-Pro architecture servers significantly improved application performance compared with ordinary 2-way servers. For example, some computational chemistry, materials science and weather forecast applications showed nearly 150% performance improvement.
Internationalization of Sugon: from recognition to identification
The two server products jointly released by Sugon and two international giants reflect Sugon's endeavor to achieve "application recreates value" against the backdrop of practical problems of the industry through technology, and to truly achieve "quality internationalization."
Sugon also orderly carries out its market internationalization. In the list of the TOP 500 super computers released in November of last year, Sugon ranked first in China and third place in the world with an advantage of 49 sets of high performance computer systems. Since then, Sugon's logo has been recognized by international counterparts and merchants in upstream and downstream industries and has attracted worldwide attention. Half a year later, Sugon has cooperated with many international giants to jointly release new generation server products, and is widely identified in the world by virtue of its well-advised new technology solutions.
Furthermore, at ISC, the leaders of Sugon made sufficient and in-depth communication with upstream enterprises represented by Intel and Mellanox and partners, and Sugon has aroused the interest of more and more international manufacturers by virtue of its technical reserve and strength accumulated over the years, and manufacturers have expressed their willingness to achieve complete ecological layout over the world with Sugon.
Wang Lei, Sugon's vice president in charge of overseas markets, expressed that Sugon, which is committed to transforming into an integrated service provider of IT, is expanding all over the world, from Southeast Asia to Russia, from North America to Europe, and conducting targeted growth strategies according to the different characteristics of each market. Guided by the international strategy of "Open & Invest," Sugon can provide partners with not only products, technology and solutions, but also resource sharing, investment and other cooperation modes. All of this makes Sugon continuously gain popularity in overseas markets and its road of internationalization become wider and wider.
