Lenovo and Intel to Deliver Powerful, Energy Efficient Next-Generation Supercomputer to Leibniz Supercomputing Center

8:00 AM ET, 12/14/2017 - Business Wire
New Lenovo system to provide 26.7 petaflops of computing power to Germany’s largest supercomputer, Leibniz Supercomputing Center, to solve critical environmental, astrophysical and biomedical challengesLenovo delivers 20 millionth server as part of the nearly 6,500 node installationSystem is enabled by Lenovo’s direct water-cooling technology, delivering 45 percent greater energy savings
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 14, 2017-- Lenovo (SEHK:0992) (Pink Sheets:LNVGY) Data Center Group and Intel will deliver a next-generation supercomputer to Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences in Munich, Germany. One of the foremost European computing centers for professionals in the scientific, research and academic communities, LRZ is tasked with managing not only exponential amounts of big data, but processing and analyzing that data quickly to accelerate research initiatives around the world. For example, the LRZ recently completed the world’s largest simulation of earthquakes and resulting tsunami’s, such as the Sumatra-Andaman Earthquake. This research enables real-time scenarios planning that can help predict aftershocks and other seismic hazards.
Upon its completion in late 2018, the new supercomputer (called SuperMUC-NG) will support LRZ in its groundbreaking research across a variety of complex scientific disciplines, such as astrophysics, fluid dynamics and life sciences, by offering highly available, secure and energy-efficient high-performance computing (HPC) services that leverage industry-leading technology optimized to address the a broad range of scientific computing applications. The LRZ installation will also feature the 20-millionth server shipped by Lenovo, a significant milestone in the company’s data center history.
“Lenovo is committed to providing research institutions like LRZ with not only sheer computing power, but a true, end-to-end solution that can help effectively and efficiently solve critical humanitarian challenges. We’re pleased to be working on this next-generation project in partnership with Intel,” said Scott Tease, Executive Director, HPC and AI, Lenovo Data Center Group. “The new SuperMUC-NG installation will provide LRZ with greater compute power in a smaller data center footprint with drastically reduced energy usage through innovative water-cooling technology, offering researchers a comprehensive supercomputing solution that packs more performance than ever to accelerate critical research projects.”
The SuperMUC-NG will deliver a staggering 26.7 petaflop compute capacity powered by nearly 6,500 nodes of Lenovo’s recently-announced, next-generation ThinkSystem SD650 servers, featuring Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors with Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX 512), and interconnected with Intel® Omni-Path Architecture. The new system will also include the integration of Lenovo Intelligent Computing Orchestrator (LiCO), a powerful management suite with an intuitive GUI that helps accelerate development of HPC and AI applications, as well as cloud-based components to empower LRZ researchers with the freedom to virtualize, process the vast amount of data sets and expediently share results with colleagues.
To address the often-astronomical operational expenses generated by high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, the new SuperMUC-NG supercomputer will benefit from Intel technical optimizations and also feature cutting-edge water cooling technology from Lenovo. In combination with Lenovo Energy Aware Run-Time (EAR) software, a technology that dynamically controls system infrastructure power while applications are still running, Lenovo’s comprehensive water-cooling technology delivers 45 percent greater electricity savings to LRZ as compared to a similar, standard air-cooled system. Together, these energy efficiency innovations will help further reduce the research center’s carbon footprint and total cost of ownership.
“Global research leaders like LRZ are driving insights that address not only some of the most complex problems we face, but that also make meaningful improvements in all of our lives,” said Trish Damkroger, Vice President of Technical Computing at Intel. “Intel offers the technical foundation that, when combined with the solution expertise of Lenovo, delivers the efficient performance and ease of programing to help LRZ’s researchers drive more discoveries with deeper analytics than have ever been possible before.”
Once operational, the LRZ SuperMUC-NG system is expected to place on the industry-wide TOP500 list.

JPMorgan Chase:

The firm is built on the foundation of more than 1,200 predecessor institutions that have come together through the years to form today's company. We trace our roots to 1799 in New York City, and our many well-known heritage firms include J.P. Morgan & Co., The Chase Manhattan Bank, Bank One, Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co., Chemical Bank, The First National Bank of Chicago, National Bank of Detroit, The Bear Stearns Companies Inc., Robert Fleming Holdings, Cazenove Group and the business acquired in the WaMu transaction. Each of these firms, in its time, was closely tied to innovations in finance and the growth of the U.S. and global economies.
Financing the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge:
The Brooklyn Trust Company, one of JPMorgan Chase’s predecessors, provided a majority of the nearly $15 million needed to finance the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in the world. The historic bridge, opened in 1883, was the first to connect Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Historic Relic from the Hamilton-Burr Duel
JPMorgan Chase & Co. owns the brace of dueling pistols used in the infamous 1804 duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Aaron Burr was the first director of The Bank of The Manhattan Company, the firm's earliest banking predecessor. The Bank of The Manhattan Company purchased the pistols in 1930.
Honoring a Financial Leader
Salmon P. Chase is the namesake for the Chase National Bank, which later merged to become JPMorgan Chase & Co. Founded in 1877 by John Thompson, Chase National Bank was named as an homage to Salmon P. Chase, who served as Secretary of Treasury for Abraham Lincoln. Chase’s image was also featured on the $10,000 bill.
Connecting Two Oceans
In 1904, J.P. Morgan & Co. was part of the largest real estate deal at that time, arranging the transfer of $40 million from the U.S. government to the French Panama Canal Co. to connect the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans by way of the Panama Canal.
Advancing Women in Finance
In 1924, Chase National Bank appointed Mary Andress Assistant Cashier. Chase was the first large New York City bank to hire a female officer in its main office. Andress also actively promoted banking as a viable career choice for women.
Debut of an Iconic Logo
The Chase octagon logo debuted in 1960 and was one of the earliest abstract company logos. While the octagon’s appearance has evolved over the years, it has been an integral part of the Chase brand for almost sixty years.
Pioneering the ATM
The United States’ first prototype cash dispensing machine, a precursor to the ATM, was inaugurated by Chemical Bank in 1969 at a Rockville Centre branch on Long Island. The first US bank to offer cash on demand, 24-hour banking was on its way to becoming a convenience all could enjoy.
Funding the Revitalization of Detroit’s Economy
In 2014, JPMorgan Chase & Co. pledged $100 million over five years to support, accelerate, and scale some of the most innovative efforts underway to transform Detroit’s economy. To find out more, take a look at what we’re doing in Detroit.
