Nov. 30 -- Allinea Software has announced that the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has selected Allinea Software to improve debugging performance and scalability on IBM's Blue Gene/P system*.
As the leading supplier of software development tools for high performance computing (HPC), Allinea was chosen by Argonne to enhance debugging performance and allow Blue Gene/P to take advantage of Allinea's recent scalability breakthroughs for other platforms.
Mike Fish, chief executive officer at Allinea Software, explains: "Argonne's decision expands the choices available to the Blue Gene community as Argonne and Allinea join forces to deploy very fast, highly scalable, easy-to-use debugging for the IBM Blue Gene community. Argonne's choice reinforces Allinea's track record as market and technology leader."
This tool selected by Argonne is focused on drastically improving scalability beyond a single I/O node. Allinea DDT for Blue Gene will significantly reduce scalability bottlenecks by ensuring that all systems -- up to the largest (1000 racks) -- will perform at essentially the same speed as a single rack (100ms approx.) for all common operations (e.g., on collective, single, and subset operations). Allinea DDT for Blue Gene thus becomes the first fully scalable solution available today on IBM Blue Gene/P series.
* Blue Gene is a computer architecture project designed to produce several supercomputers, designed to reach operating speeds in the PFLOPS (petaFLOPS) range, and currently reaching sustained speeds of nearly 500 TFLOPS (teraflops). It is a cooperative project among IBM (particularly IBM Rochester and the Thomas J. Watson Research Center), the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the United States Department of Energy (which is partially funding the project), and academia. There are four Blue Gene projects in development: Blue Gene/L, Blue Gene/C, Blue Gene/P, and Blue Gene/Q.
