Boston will be showcasing liquid cooled performance enhanced workstations, high availability Igloo Storage solutions and their revolutionary SuperFlex Blade™ which supports 20 of NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPU accelerators coupled with Intel’s most recent generation of Xeon® processors for unprecedented processing density, compute power and bandwidth. Designed in partnership with industry leader Supermicro, Boston’s most recent generation of their SuperFlex 7U processing appliance brings to the industry a new dimension of energy efficient hybrid parallel compute processing power for technical and enterprise computing. Powered by NVIDIA Tesla M2090 GPU compute accelerators Boston SuperFlex Blade™ platforms have fast earned a reputation for being some of the world’s fastest CPU to GPU configurations available today. With an extraordinary 10,240 GPU processing cores, 120x Intel Xeon CPU cores and a phenomenal 1.93TB of memory all within a single appliance, Boston’s SuperFlex appliance provides up to an astounding 26+ TeraFlops of hybrid computational performance.
It’s always interesting to read about further developments in the HPC space whether it’s in the blade, worksation or server technologies, extending the possibilities of the platforms whether it’s in cooling, adding processing capabilities through GPU upgrades enhancing the scalability of the platform in terms of memory, throughput or cpus, all create opportunities in capacity and opportunity for HPC solutions and HPC as a platform. I’m off to read up more.
