Today Appro introduced a new Xtreme-Cool supercomputer that provides up to three times more energy efficiency per rack in a data center versus air-cooled designs. With its blade architecture, the Appro Xtreme-Cool Supercomputer can reportedly scale to 25 Petaflops of performance and be configured as Fat Tree or 3D Torus architecture with interconnect options for single or dual rail, InfiniBand or Ethernet making it optimized for superior application performance.
Customers who are pressing the state of the art in scientific discovery are looking for not only outstanding performance and energy-efficiency, but also programmability and manageability”, said Dr. Rajeeb Hazra, VP Intel Architecture Group and GM Technical Computing, Datacenter and Connected Systems Group. “The Appro Xtreme-Cool meets those needs by combining the power of Intel Xeon processor E5 family with the programmability and energy efficiency of the Intel Many Integrated (Intel MIC) architecture based Intel® Xeon Phi coprocessors. This combination of technologies establishes a new standard for both programmer productivity and performance per watt.”
Appro will showcase the Xtreme-Cool technology at SC12 booth #2443 in Salt Lake City, Utah – November 12-15.
