PERMAS on Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

On time with the announcement of the new Intel Xeon scalable processors on July 11, INTES offers an optimized PERMAS version which boosts the performance to unseen levels.

The overall performance of PERMAS always depends on the performance of both hardware and software. The close cooperation between Intel and Intes over many years ensures the ongoing adoption of new features to be at the forefront of high performance computing. As a consequence, a new processor release is always accompanied by the best adapted software. This is what INTES wants to provide to its customers.

We want to target all customers who have an increasing need for high performance FE solutions. Simulation driven design fosters this trend to more accurate simulation results. A higher accuracy is possible by using larger and more complex models.

The new INTEL® XEON® SCALABLE PROCESSORS are supported by PERMAS® from the very beginning. On these processors, PERMAS shows excellent performance as documented on a joint flyer.
There is up to 56% higher 4-socket performance than a previous-generation server.

The leap in performance on this new INTEL® XEON® SCALABLE PROCESSORS is mainly due to the AVX 512 instruction set, because it perfectly supports the high level matrix operations in PERMAS. Increased memory bandwidth helps to better exploit the speed of the processors.

Large simulation models are mostly running out-of-core. A high speed storage device like Intel’s NVMe SSD drives are directly addressed by PERMAS without the need to use an I/O controller resulting in very efficient I/O and short overall run times. In particular, short access times combined with a direct I/O scheme in PERMAS provides high data transfer to optimally feed the processors. An additional increase of data transfer can be obtained by striped SSD drives.

Processor systems with several sockets are very suitable to increase throughput for multiple jobs, particularly in combination with high performance SSD drives.
