Today One Stop Systems, Inc. (OSS) announced a demonstration of the first optical PCIe interface board with MXC connectors at SC14. Now x8 PCIe 3.0, operating at 64Gb/s, can be transmitted over state-of-the-art MXC passive optical cables, offering data centers a huge advantage in cost and performance. The board uses Intel Silicon Photonics technology and the new adapter supports the PCIe sideband signals and Spread Spectrum Clock Isolation. The card is half-height and half-length and the operating system is transparent, requiring no drivers.
The expansion appliance, the first to support up to sixteen Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors, will be at the Intel Pavilion at SC14. The preconfigured appliance is designed for data centers operating HPC applications, offering a product that solves many integration issues, provides enhanced performance, and allows for scalable flexibility. Connect the High Density Compute Accelerator (HDCA) with one to four servers and hundreds if not thousands of additional compute cores are readily available. Each connection operates at PCIe x16 3.0 with speeds of up to 128Gb/s
We are extremely happy to partner with Intel to provide this exceptional hardware solution to support the many application needs for processing data,” said Steve Cooper, OSS CEO. “With support of up to 16 Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors, the HDCA adds over 19Tflops of compute power to your server or servers. It can be attached to one server to add a full 19 Tflops of compute power or to up to four servers, each gaining 5Tflops of additional compute power. In addition, the HDCA is tested thoroughly with your server to insure a quick startup. We will provide you with a list of qualified servers. Installation is also quick and easy.
The High Density Compute Accelerator equipped with Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors is available immediately.
