Lenovo‘s Cool Fix for HPC Energy Consumption

and haven’t always been closely associated with . In fact, for the first four decades (beginning in the early 1960s) of commercial , owners were far more concerned with systems’ computational capabilities than the electrical energy they consumed.

That was mainly because of the unique value of custom-built systems like the Cray CDC 6600 (delivered in 1964) which performed highly complex calculations faster than most people could imagine. In addition, the heady price tags of supercomputers limited interest in the systems to any but the deepest-pocketed large enterprises and government labs—organizations that cared more about results than virtually any cost.

External events began to change that dynamic beginning in the early 2000s. Those points resonate in ’s new ThinkSystem SD650, a high-density commercial solution designed to maximize compute performance for HPC workloads and applications while minimizing energy consumption. Let’s take a look at how power issues are impacting HPC and supercomputing, what Lenovo has achieved and how its new addresses customers’ energy constraints and concerns.
