Atipa Technologies launches AMD Opteron™ processor-based 64-bit computational cluster
New York, NY --
Atipa Technologies announced today that it will offer its new Talladega-64 computer systems to the scientific and business communities. Atipa’s Talladega-64 supports the AMD Opteron™ processor.
For many years, Atipa Technologies has deployed world-class Beowulf-class supercomputers and high-performance computing solutions in almost every major university, research laboratory and Fortune 500 Company in the U.S. Now, Atipa will offer 64-bit x86 systems that will raise the bar in commodity computing.
The Talladega-64 series will spearhead this new standard of commodity computing products. The new AMD Opteron™ processor-based systems will be built according to the quality standards of its ISO-9002 certified manufacturing facility.
Already, Atipa Technologies has seen an overwhelming demand for the new Talladega-64 systems. “We are pleased that Advanced Micro Devices is working directly with Atipa to provide a positive launch of this new technology,” commented Bret Stouder, Director of Atipa technologies. “We believe the Talladega-64 with AMD64 technology will be heavily accepted in the open source community for both server and desktop applications.”
Atipa’s first Talladega-64 system, a 33-node (66-processor) system has been delivered to COLSA Corporation of Huntsville, AL for their continuing studies of high-performance computing in support of their customer, the US Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM). The COLSA project uses computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for the analysis of hypersonic missile flight on high-end supercomputers and supercluster systems. COLSA’s primary objective is to provide the Army with enabling technology that will allow revolutionary hypersonic concepts to be developed for both offensive and defensive missile systems. As an added benefit, this technology will also reduce overall supercomputing costs through the use of new cluster technology. The features of the new AMD Opteron™ processor-based systems include:
- Simultaneous 32- and 64-bit high-performance computing
- HyperTransport™ technology designed to increase the communication speed between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment up to 48 times faster than some existing technologies
- Integrated DDR memory controller which greatly increases bandwidth directly available to the processor at significantly reduced latencies
“Atipa is gaining significant momentum in the scientific and business computing communities and AMD is working cooperatively to help ensure that our shared customers can reap the benefits of Atipa’s Talladega-64 servers based on the AMD Opteron processor,” said Ben Williams, director, AMD’s Server/Workstation Business Segment. “AMD Opteron processors offer native support for 32- and 64-bit computing and can dramatically boost system performance for high-performance computing.”
Atípa offers customers a single point of contact for delivering turnkey Linux-based solutions, including software, hardware, appliances, support and professional services. Atipa Technologies has a unique ability to provided quality systems that meet ISO-Certified standards at a price that keeps its solutions not only available for U.S. researches but, those World-wide.
