Penguin Computing today announced the latest addition to its Altus series of servers. The latest in the series will feature AMD’s six-core Opteron processor, codenamed “Istanbul.” The complete upgrade to Altus includes the Altus 1701 and 2701 dual-processor enterprise servers, the Altus 1702 twin-node HPC server and the Altus 2704 quad-socket enterprise server.
We are excited to provide this new family of Altus servers to our HPC customers,” said Jussi Kukkonen, director of hardware product management at Penguin Computing. “Distributed applications will benefit greatly from the 50 percent increase in core count and physical density, while HT Assist boosts the RAM performance for our customer’s large, memory hungry applications.”
