Army Research Lab Receives Two Liqid Composable Supercomputers

Composable infrastructure provider Liqid has delivered two composable supercomputers to the Department of Defense.

The supercomputers are powered by NVIDIA A100 graphics processing units and Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 central processing units. Both GPUs and CPUs are designed to deliver enhanced capabilities for high-performance computing, artificial intelligence processing, networking and data analytics. The supercomputers will be located at the Army Research Laboratory DOD Supercomputing Resource Center in Maryland.

The solutions will support ARL DSRC’s efforts to support supercomputer and computational science, research, development, test and evaluation activities across the Pentagon, Liqid said.

The supercomputers come with the Liqid Matrix software, which transforms static IT infrastructure into configurable environments that allow users to improve AI, machine learning and HPC performance and efficiency. It pools resources within the supercomputer to deploy, scale and reconfigure servers depending on specific task requirements.

The Liqid supercomputers’ arrival at the ARL DSRC follows the activation of the U.S. Navy’s Nautilus supercomputer in April. Nautilus is initially available to science and technology and research and development teams across the Navy, Army and other Pentagon components.
