COLFAX intros new series of Tesla clusters

Today COLFAX has announced their Tesla cluster offering, following NVIDIA’s announcement yesterday of their Preconfigured Tesla Cluster program.

The Colfax CXT6000 series clusters democratizes HPC by providing scientists, engineers and technical professionals with an affordable supercomputing resource, that is much faster, uses fewer systems and is more energy-efficient than a CPU-only driven cluster. Powered by the NVIDIA Tesla S1070 Computing System, a four-teraflop 1U system, coupled with NVIDIA CUDA architecture, Colfax CXT6000 series clusters provide a quantum leap in performance and continue to accelerate the pace of engineering and scientific work to solve the most computationally-intensive challenges including drug research, oil and gas exploration, and computational finance.

The COLFAX CXT6000 series pairs Tesla S1070s with either Xeon or Opteron processors in four configurations of 4, 8, and 16 nodes with a 40Gb/s InfiniBand interconnect. The clusters can also be customized to suit your specific requirements. The four flavors of the CXT6000 series are

CXT6000N includes twin 1U compute nodes with latest Intel Xeon 5500 series “Nehalem” processors and up to 96GB RAM per node.
CXT6000HS includes twin 1U compute nodes with Intel Xeon 5400 series processors and up to 128GB RAM per node.
CXT6000H includes 2U compute nodes with Intel Xeon 5400 series processors and up to 128GB RAM per node.
CXT6000E includes twin 1U compute nodes with latest AMD Opteron “Shanghai” processors and up to 128GB RAM per node.
