Angstrom announces World’s First four-processor AMD Opteron™ processor-based Blade server: The Titan64 QuadraBlade™
—A Titan64 QuadraBlade rack houses 52 blades for a total of 208 AMD Opteron processors -- the densest blade configuration in the industry today—
Boston, MA. --
Angstrom Microsystems, an AMD Opteron™ processor specialist company, is announcing the world's first blade server running on four AMD Opteron processors. These blade servers can be easily racked, providing the highest density of any 4P AMD Opteron processor server in a rack today -- 208 processors and 52 blades. The Titan64 QuadraBlade is available immediately and will be on display at the Bio-IT World show in Boston March 30 - April 1, 2004.
A Titan64 QuadraBlade rack is comprised of four stacked nests, each nest housing 13 QuadraBlades for a total of 4 x 13 blade, or 52 blades. Each blade is a four-processor cache coherent, shared memory (SMP) system with the option of 2 SCSI, IDE, SATA HDDs and high- speed interconnects such as Myrinet™ or Infiniband.
“Angstrom Microsystems is enabling the next evolution in AMD Opteron processor-based server design,” said Ben Williams, director of Server and Workstation Marketing at AMD. “The Titan64 QuadraBlade provides Angstrom customers with an HPC-specific design that delivers leading-edge application performance and scalability.”
“The AMD Opteron processor redefines high performance computing by enabling superb performance for both 32-bit and 64-bit applications,” said Lalit Jain, CEO of Angstrom Microsystems, “Angstrom is proud to announce supercomputing technology based on the four-processor AMD Opteron processor-based blade design.”
