Angstrom Unveils Its First Quad AMD Opteron™ Processor–Based Blade Server Powered by Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ Processors
Titan64 QuadraBlade Delivers High Performance in Ultra-Dense Form Factor
Boston, MA --
Angstrom Microsystems, a Platinum Member of the AMD Solution Provider Program, today announced their first quad processor blade server, which will support Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ processors. These blade servers can be easily racked to provide one of the highest density of any 4P AMD Opteron processor-based server in a rack today – up to 208 processors and 52 blades.
"Angstrom’s compute hungry customers can take full advantage of Next-Generation AMD Opteron processors in one of the densest cluster-friendly form factor available today," said Lalit Jain, CEO of Angstrom Microsystems. “With our patent-pending cooling technology, Angstrom enables scaling of high volume deployments with the most current processors AMD has to offer.”
A Titan64 QuadraBlade rack is comprised of four stacked nests, each nest housing 13 QuadraBlades for a total of 4 x 13 blades, or 52 blades. Each blade is a four-processor cache coherent, shared memory (SMP) system with the option of 2 SCSI, IDE, or SATA-II HDDs and high- speed interconnects such as Infiniband or Infinipath. Angstrom is one of the few vendors to provide AMD Opteron processor-based servers in an ultra-dense blade format.
"Angstrom Microsystems recognizes that AMD64 technology is able to address compute-intensive users’ demands such as performance-per-watt and energy-efficiency," said Pat Patla, Director, Server/Workstation Marketing, AMD (NYSE: AMD). "Customers of the Next-Generation AMD Opteron processor-based Titan64 QuadraBlade server can expect a manageable and reliable high performance computing-specific cluster solution that can scale as more compute power is required."
Angstrom Microsystems builds highly efficient data center server and workstation solutions for the high-performance computing (HPC) market. With high efficiency cooling and power systems, Angstrom can save energy costs for large data centers, providing excellent TCO for its customers. Additionally, Angstrom focuses on AMD platforms with AMD64 expertise and knowledge of HPC software in the bio-informatics, scientific computing, financial modeling, graphics rendering, and oil and gas industries. Its clients include Industrial Light and Magic, Pixar, ConocoPhilips, and National Institutes of Health.
