Making computing for ‘big science’ more green | iSGTW | High Performance Computing | Scoop.it

Computer scientists across the globe are working towards creating the first exascale supercomputers. However, energy consumption is likely to prove a major barrier to achieving this. Simon McIntosh-Smith of the University of Bristol, UK, reported at the workshop that the average power consumption of the top ten high-performance computing (HPC) systems in the Top500 list has increased five times over the last five years, while the average of the whole Top500 list has increased more than three times over the same period. “This isn’t very sustainable,” he says. “Nobody yet knows how to build a sustainable exaFLOPS supercomputer.”

 

“Getting the power isn’t necessarily the problem,” explains McIntosh-Smith. “The problem is really the cost: not just in terms of euros or dollars, but also in terms of CO2.” He adds: “A 10MW system costs about $10m per year to run in terms of power costs.”

 

McIntosh-Smith is also a member of Europe’s Mont-Blanc project, which aims ‘to produce a new type of computer architecture capable of setting future global HPC standards that will provide exascale performance using 15 to 30 times less energy’. He and his project colleagues believe that energy-efficient mobile processors could be the key to reducing power consumption in HPC.

255 Terabits/s: Researchers demonstrate record data transmission over new type of fiber

255 Terabits/s: Researchers demonstrate record data transmission over new type of fiber | High Performance Computing | Scoop.it

Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands and the University of Central Florida (CREOL), report in the journal Nature Photonics the successful transmission of a record high 255 Terabits/s over a new type of fiber allowing 21 times more bandwidth than currently available in communication networks. This new type of fiber could be an answer to mitigating the impending optical transmission capacity crunch caused by the increasing bandwidth demand.

Due to the popularity of Internet services and emerging network of capacity-hungry datacentres, demand for telecommunication bandwidth is expected to continue at an exponential rate. To transmit more information through current optical glass fibers, an option is to increase the power of the signals to overcome the losses inherent in the glass from which the fibre is manufactured. However, this produces unwanted photonic nonlinear effects, which limit the amount of information that can be recovered after transmission over the standard fiber.

 

The team at TU/e and CREOL, led by dr. Chigo Okonkwo, an assistant professor in the Electro-Optical Communications (ECO) research group at TU/e and dr. Rodrigo Amezcua Correa, a research assistant professor in Micro-structured fibers at CREOL, demonstrate the potential of a new class of fiber to increase transmission capacity and mitigate the impending 'capacity crunch' in their article that appeared yesterday in the online edition of the journal Nature Photonics.

 

The new fiber has seven different cores through which the light can travel, instead of one in current state-of-the-art fibers. This compares to going from a one-way road to a seven-lane highway. Also, they introduce two additional orthogonal dimensions for data transportation – as if three cars can drive on top of each other in the same lane. Combining those two methods, they achieve a gross transmission throughput of 255 Terabits/s over the fiber link. This is more than 20 times the current standard of 4-8 Terabits/s.
