WARWICK, England, Nov. 8 -- Germany’s Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ, http://www.lrz.de) has chosen Allinea Software (www.allinea.com) to support debugging for the targeted large-scale parallel applications on the IBM SuperMUC system next year.
LRZ, which is the computer centre for Munich's universities and for the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, provides high-end computing facilities for the scientific community in Germany and beyond.
The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) announced the implementation of the IBM system, which will comprise of more than a hundred thousand cores capable of delivering an impressive three peak petaflops/s of processing power. When SuperMUC is installed at LRZ in the middle of 2012, it will most likely be a top 10 system. SuperMUC will follow the 1.0 petaflop "JUGENE" (Jülich Blue Gene" Blue Gene/P supercomputer), already in service at Forschungszentrum Juelich (FZJ), and the 1.25 petaflop Bull-built "Curie" system at the Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique (CEA) in France.
These machines currently occupy 9th and 6th position respectively on the TOP500 list. It will be one of the Tier-0 systems available in the PRACE infrastructure which provides large-scale computational resources and infrastructure for scientific applications throughout Europe.
Dr. Reinhold Bader, deputy group leader of HPC support at LRZ, comments: “Our choice of Allinea’s debugging solutions was determined by a need for both ease of use and scalability which would hold no barriers in using the development tools and could offer researchers superior processing times for their results.”
It will enable LRZ's scientific community to test theories, design experiments and predict outcomes as never before. The supercomputer will be jointly funded by the German federal government and the state of Bavaria.
Mike Fish, CEO of Allinea Software, explains: “We are delighted that LRZ has chosen Allinea to handle its software debugging for its IBM SuperMUC system. Our software solutions are engineered to empower developers with the tools to fix bugs both quickly and easily, being powerful enough for the most advanced parallel programmers, but also accessible for beginners without training. In effect, we’re providing target scale debugging whether programming for 8 cores or 200,000”.
This partnership with LRZ represents yet another significant deal for Allinea in the European market.
