Today Penguin Computing announced immediate availability of the Penguin Tundra cluster platform powered by the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 product family. First unveiled at SC13 and based on Open Compute Project rack level infrastructure, Penguin Tundra delivers the highest density and lowest total cost of ownership for High Performance Technical Computing clusters.
As the first Penguin-original system design Penguin Tundra is an embodiment of Penguin’s system integration and data center expertise,” said Tom Coull, CEO and President of Penguin Computing. “Tundra provides density and TCO advantages for current large-scale HPC deployments while designed to accommodate future exascale HPC components such as coprocessors and fabrics.”
Penguin Tundra delivers a very high number of dual socket (2P) Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 compute nodes per rack by combining the Open Rack infrastructure defined by the Open Compute Project with a Penguin original compute node design. Open Rack design utilizes the available physical space more efficiently and features also a shared, rack level, redundant AC/DC power conversion and distribution.
We are excited to see Penguin Computing offering state-of-the-art HPC solutions powered by the new Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors,” said Eoin McConnell, Xeon E5 family product line director, Data Center Group. “The enhanced floating point compute performance provided by the new processors combined with the physical density and efficiency of the Penguin Tundra platform provides a powerful solution for TOP500 supercomputers and commercial HPC clusters.”
