15 Bringing it Together: Solution Components Scalable servers, clusters, and supercomputers Cost-efficient, reliable Altix XE clusters with leading density, power efficiency Advanced scalability to 512 processors per Altix server and 128TB globally addressable memory per system Complete Linux solution for HPC Interactive parallel computing platform Bridges MATLAB and Altix servers Works with familiar desktop tools, while leveraging an HPC for computationally-intensive tasks Automatic and transparent, no new programming SGI ® Altix ® and Altix ® XE ISC Star-P Images courtesy of Silicon Graphics, Inc; Interactive Supercomputing Inc.

16 How Star-P works Star-P consists of desktop & server software Desktop software – Star-P Client –Overloads or intercepts desktop tool functions –Connects and communicates to/with server software – securely Server software – Star-P Server on SGI ® Altix ® or SGI ® Altix ® XE –Manages and directs resources – memory, cpus and I/O –Contains world class libraries for parallel execution –User & Session management

17 Whats the Value Desktop Users: –No change in religion –Interactivity On parallel machines For large data –No reprogramming No C, Fortran, MPI –Reduced run times Not hours or weeks –Continued model optimization Organization –Collapse development cycles –Reduce costs –Broaden usage –Shorten solution time –Accelerate research

18 Parallel Development Takes Too Long Months or years are spent porting from desktops to parallel systems No interactively on parallel machines from desktop Little ability to iterate Long compute times for batch runs; hours-days Analysts ability to optimize the model is limited

19 Using Star-P– Serial operations Use MATLAB –File Editor –Profiler –Debugger –Array Editor –Desktop –Visualization –Small Calculations Running Star-P does not affect normal MATLAB environment Problems that can be solved on desktop - stay on desktop
