BoxCluster has launched BoxClusterDSN, a deskside supercomputing environment featuring Intel 5500 series architecture and up to 384Gb of memory.
It is an ideal solution for those HPC users requiring large memory and a multicore clustering environment. The turnkey solution arrives with all the necessary operating software loaded, so no there is no need for specialised IT engineering.
The system is also extremely quiet even when running at 100 per cent, allowing it to operate as a true deskside system. Moreover, it runs at under 15A, so can be plugged into a standard wall socket without the need for specialist power equipment.
The system features a 'blade concept', allowing for for easy maintenance. The internal node can be remvoed without a specialised tool and can be replaced while the other nodes are running.
