According to a recent report from Pike Research, the energy-efficiency benefits of cloud computing are substantial, and growth in the market will have important implications for both energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
In the past year, Intel has launched

Meeting these challenges will require a modular, cluster-based design that is both scalable and resilient, according to Prof. Lippert. He noted that the JUROPA supercomputer at his center in Jülich, currently the14th fastest computer in the world, consists of a cluster of about 15,000 processor cores. He predicted that a future exa-scale systems could be comprised of as many as 10 million cores – a major challenge in terms of power consumption and data communication amongst all the cores.
To achieve all of this, Intel has invested in collaborations with institutions that specialize in high performance computing. Three Intel labs, all members of the
At the same time, researchers are hard work developing technologies for the future many-core microprocessors that will one day be at the heart of these clusters. For more on that – see
