Today Cray and ScaleMP announced the availability of two new preconfigured clusters powered by SMP Foundation software. The turnkey solutions is designed to deliver large-scale, high-performance virtual machines for complex modeling analysis and big data challenges.
Preconfigured and managed as one single system, the CS300 SMP and CS300 LMS solutions simplify system administration and programming, eliminating the need for separate cluster management software or having to update multiple operating systems and associated applications. With the CS300 LMS system, users can exploit the power of fast access to high speed memory in data analytics visualization for scientific research exploration, engineering design simulations, bioinformatics, weather simulations and more. Cray CS300 SMP users can leverage the processing speed and large memory in analytics and simulations in areas such as electronic design automation, mechanical computer-aided engineering, bioinformatics and financial analysis.”
Based on technology acquired from Appro, the Cray CS300 systems are air-cooled configurations that feature hot-swappable, redundant high-efficiency power supplies for energy efficiency, reliability and serviceability.
