Motivair's Cooling Technology Enables Supercomputer

Motivair continues its support and enablement of high-performance computing, this time at Purdue University. Its new supercomputer, Anvil, features our custom-wrapped ChilledDoors®.

Anvil will enable new discoveries in hypersonics and deep learning to archeological reconstruction and bone biomechanics.

Funded by a $22.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation, Anvil is being tested by more than 30 research teams and is expected to enter full production later this year, the university said, in November.

Anvil will also increase the capacity available to the NSF's Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), in which Purdue has been a partner for the last decade.

Purdue’s Anvil Supercomputer was recently highlighted by NVIDIA, as it features 64 NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs on a NVIDIA Quantum InfiniBand network. According to Nvidia:

Anvil links 1,000 Dell EMC PowerEdge C6525 server nodes with 2,000 of the latest AMD x86 CPUs and 64 NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs on a NVIDIA Quantum InfiniBand network to handle traditional HPC and new AI workloads. The system, built by Dell Technologies, will deliver 5.3 petaflops and half a million GPU cycles per year to tens of thousands of researchers across the U.S. working on the National Science Foundation’s XSEDE network.
