1 Windows Compute Cluster Server Overview and Update Paris OpenFabrics Workshop 2006 Xavier Pillons – Principal Consultant Microsoft France

2 Top 500 Supercomputer Trends Industry usage rising GigE is gaining (50% of systems) Clusters over 70% x86 is leading (Pentium 41%, EM64T 16%, Opteron 11%)

3 Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 Faster time-to-insight through simplified cluster deployment, job submission and status monitoring Faster time-to-insight through simplified cluster deployment, job submission and status monitoring Better integration with existing Windows infrastructure allowing customers to leverage existing technology and skill-sets Better integration with existing Windows infrastructure allowing customers to leverage existing technology and skill-sets Familiar development environment allows developers to write parallel applications from within the powerful Visual Studio IDE Familiar development environment allows developers to write parallel applications from within the powerful Visual Studio IDE

10 Compute Cluster Server’s Developer Environment Compute Cluster Server’s Scheduler software Programmatic job submission/control Compute Cluster Server’s MPI software Derived from Argonne National Lab’s MPI-2 implementation (MPICH2) MS MPI consists of 2 parts For ISVs: Full-featured API of160+ functions For Users: Command-line (mpiexec) or GUI tool to launch jobs Why did MS HPC team choose MPI? MPI has emerged as de-facto standard for parallel programming Visual Studios 2005 New parallel debugger! MPI & Open Message Passing (OpenMP) support

11 Proliferation of MPI libraries Application MPIImplementations Interconnects OSDistributions KernelVersions

12 Customers as integrators IT Manager’s Challenges What versions of Kernels? If application X has an MPI error, which vendor should I call for support? If application X drops Kernel version Y support, which nodes do I need to upgrade? If I remove a node for maintenance, what applications won’t be able to run anymore?

13 CCS brings back the sanity Leverage Winsock Direct for best performance (latency & throughput) and CPU efficiency. Increased Flexibility: Users can upgrade their network interconnect with no changes to the application or MPI stack. Increased Utilization: All applications on the cluster benefit from the faster network…not just MPI applications. Targeting Industry Standard Interconnect Fabrics: Gigabit Ethernet to minimize costs for a fast network Infiniband for latency-sensitive and bandwidth-intensive applications MSMPI AnyInterconnect W2k3 WSD Application
