Power Architecture - High Performance  Computing Webinar

HPC - Innovative Technologies for Power Management based on Power Architecture 


March 29, 2011  10:00* AM CT (Duration: 1 hour) will continue provide value to the community with education webinars targeting architects, software developers, marketers, academia and analysts. As a part of celebrating the 20thanniversary of Power Architecture, in collaboration with IBM member company is pleased to offer webinar on High Performance Computing.

IBM has been the Supercomputing leader for years and 2011 will  not be an exception to the rule.

With the new power7 microprocessor, IBM designed a new supercomputer architecture with integrated interconnect and extended software stack to increase engineers and researchers productivity. In 2011, systems based this  novel architecture will be installed at major customer sites like Blue Water,  a 10 PFlops system at NCSA;  next generation supercomputers for weather forecast  and climate simulations at ECMWF (European Weather Forecast) and UK Met Office.


As energy is becoming critical to both our business and our planet, IBM designed innovative technologies based on Power Architecture to manage and optimize the power consumption of HPC systems both from a hardware and software perspective. The presentation will provide high level view of architecture and focus on differentiated technologies introduced in HPC based on Power Architecture supported by examples. With the BG/Q prototype, which is number 1 on Green500, IBM is on track to break the 2GFlokps/Watt barrier, about 4 x more than any system based on conventional CPUs. With innovative software, IBM systems in 2011 will be able to consume just the power they need to match the performance and energy targets set by the system administrator.


  • Dr. Luigi Brochard, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Deep Computing worldwide solution architect


Luigi has a Ph.D in Mathematics from Pierre et Marie Curie University in Paris, France.

He joined IBM in 1990 and became the lead architect of IBM Europe HPC technical team in 2000 and hence designed most of the largest HPC systems installed in Europe. Since in 2006, Luigi has been focusing on minimizing the power and energy consumptions of HPC systems. This work led to systems with PUE of 1.1 and new scheduling policies where jobs are given performance and power consumption targets. Luigi was named IBM Distinguished Engineer in 2004 and is now IBM Deep Computing worldwide solution architect.
