Intel Accelerates High Performance Computing

Based on what Oracle is seeing from large manufacturing and automotive customers like Nissan Motors, which is now running crash simulations and 3D visualizations on tens of thousands of production cores in the OCI Japan region, Oracle believes a significant migration of HPC workloads to the cloud has finally begun.

To accelerate those migrations, in early 2021 Oracle will replace its X7 instances with new X9s powered by Intel Ice Lake processors. Those latest HPC instances should boost performance by more than 30 percent from the previous generation at roughly the same cost, Magouyrk said.

Oracle and Intel have worked closely together on joint development for some 25 years, Intel CEO Bob Swan said.

That relationship is more important than ever thanks to the advent of high performance computing in the cloud.

“The integration of Intel’s technologies across Oracle Cloud and Engineered Systems is an extension of our long-term partnership at every layer of hardware and software development,” Swan said, noting Intel worked with Oracle to win the deal migrating Nissan’s on-prem workloads to Oracle infrastructure.

Oracle’s “industry first bare-metal offering” leveraging Intel’s “highly optimized Xeon silicon” will allow Oracle-platformed applications to support more users, operate on ever-larger data sets, and respond in real-time to complex queries, Swan said.

“Intel and Oracle both strive to give customers the very best in flexibility, performance and cost savings,” Swan said.
