Cray to Bring Optimized Docker Solution for Cray XC Series of Supercomputers
SEATTLE, WA: Cray, the super computer company will bring a Docker solution optimized for high-performance computing environments to its line of Cray XC series of supercomputers, to deliver a High Performance Computing (HPC). This new feature will be available in all Cray XC customers, to provide an open platform for developers.
Leveraging Docker solution, Cray customers can implement containers that hold the software stack—such as the application codes, shared libraries, base operating system files, user environment variables and dependencies, into easily-deployable images that contain everything an application needs to run better across multiple platforms. It is designed to provide better application probability and also to reduce the time needed to deploy the applications on the advanced super computers.
The main features of the Cray XC super computers include: the Aries system interconnect; a Dragonfly network topology that frees applications from locality constraints; optional Data Warp applications I/O flash SSD accelerator technology; innovative cooling systems to lower customers' total cost of ownership, the next-generation of the scalable, high performance and tightly integrated Cray Linux Environment that supports a wide range of applications.
The Docker solution helps to streamline workflow and reduce application porting. The HPC optimized programming environment has more predictable and consistent code behavior, which improves the performance, programmability and resulting time. This feature helps to handle wide variety of processor types namely: Intel Xeon processors, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, and NVIDIA Tesla GPU accelerators.
In addition to this, Cray will be offering this new Docker Solution to Cray CS400, Cray XE and Cray XK platforms.
