  • Duke University HPC: Higher Performance with Less Power

    At Duke University, over the past two years, we've been collecting power consumption data across 500-600 machines of the Duke Shared Cluster Resource (DSCR). The DSCR is a large Linux cluster - over 4100 CPU-cores - that provides "production-grade" computational capabilities for over 70...
  • HPC Power and Cooling: Amps – Part 3

    Dell's John Fragala Amps of a HPC System is derived from the equation Wattage divided by Voltage (A = W/V). The Wattage, or just Watts, is usually the highest power consumption measured when running Linpack, as discussed in Part 2 of this blog. The voltage depends on the customer’s...
  • HPC Power and Cooling: Power Consumption – Part 2

    After architecting a HPC System, which includes all aspects of a solution, customers would like to know the power consumption of the system. When measuring power consumption, it depends on the customers’ application workload. Each application will stress the HPC system differently. The key is using...
