Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University Deploys AMD EPYC™ Processors with Over 2 Petaflops of Computing Power Dedicated to Scientific Research

 AMD EPYC™ Pro­ces­sors pro­vi­de supe­ri­or cost-per­for­mance and high core den­si­ty 

TOKYO, Oct. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and Oki­na­wa Insti­tu­te of Sci­ence and Tech­no­lo­gy Gra­dua­te Uni­ver­si­ty (OIST) , announ­ced the deploy­ment of AMD EPYC™ 7702 pro­ces­sors for use in a new, high per­for­mance com­pu­ting sys­tem. The EPYC pro­ces­sor-based super­com­pu­ter will deli­ver the 2.36 peta­flops of com­pu­ting power OIST plans to use for sci­en­ti­fic rese­arch at the Uni­ver­si­ty.

The Sci­en­ti­fic Com­pu­ting & Data Ana­ly­sis Sec­tion (SCDA) of OIST plans to imple­ment the new super­com­pu­ter for sup­por­ting OIST com­pu­ta­tio­nal­ly inten­si­ve rese­arch ran­ging from bio­in­for­ma­tics, com­pu­ta­tio­nal neu­ro­sci­ence, and phy­sics. SCDA adop­ted AMD EPYC after signi­fi­cant growth, inclu­ding a 2X incre­a­se in users.

2020 is a mile­stone year for OIST with new rese­arch units expan­ding the num­ber of rese­arch are­as. This growth is dri­ving a signi­fi­cant incre­a­se in our com­pu­ta­tio­nal needs,” said Eddy Taille­fer, Ph.D., Sec­tion Lea­der, Sci­en­ti­fic Com­pu­ting & Data Ana­ly­sis Sec­tion. “Under the com­mon resour­ce model for which the com­pu­ting sys­tem is shared by all OIST users we nee­ded a signi­fi­cant incre­a­se in core-count capa­ci­ty to both absorb the­se deman­ds and cope with the signi­fi­cant growth of OIST. The latest AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor was the only tech­no­lo­gy that could match this core-count need in a cost-per­for­mance effec­ti­ve way.”

Key fac­tors of OIST’s selec­tion of the AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors inclu­ded supe­ri­or cost-per­for­mance, memory/PCIe® band­width, and high core counts per ser­ver. OIST plans to also con­si­der EPYC pro­ces­sors for other gro­wing com­pu­ta­tio­nal needs for Uni­ver­si­ty rese­ar­chers in the future.

AMD is proud to be working with lea­ding glo­bal insti­tu­ti­ons to bring sci­en­ti­fic rese­arch to the fore­front through the power of high per­for­mance com­pu­ting tech­no­lo­gy,” said Ram Ped­dib­hot­la, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent, EPYC pro­duct manage­ment, AMD. “With high per­for­mance capa­bi­li­ties, ease of manage­ment and sca­la­bi­li­ty, 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors can assist OIST rese­ar­chers with advan­cing tech­no­lo­gi­cal inno­va­tions and sup­por­ting their rese­arch goals in bio­in­for­ma­tics, com­pu­ta­tio­nal neu­ro­sci­ence, and phy­sics.”

About AMD
For 50 years AMD has dri­ven inno­va­ti­on in high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting, gra­phics, and visua­liz­a­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies ― the buil­ding blocks for gaming, immer­si­ve plat­forms, and the dat­a­cen­ter. Hund­reds of mil­li­ons of con­su­mers, lea­ding For­tu­ne 500 busi­nes­ses and cut­ting-edge sci­en­ti­fic rese­arch faci­li­ties around the world rely on AMD tech­no­lo­gy dai­ly to impro­ve how they live, work and play. AMD employees around the world are focu­sed on buil­ding gre­at pro­ducts that push the bounda­ries of what is pos­si­ble.
