Cray has expanded its range of HPC solutions with the addition of the CX1000, a supercomputing solution featuring a hybrid supercomputing architecture built on Intel Xeon processors.
Configurable with Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 and Linux, the Cray CX1000 supports three different compute architectures within one product family. Each configuration allows Cray CX1000 customers to architect a hybrid supercomputing system designed to solve computationally intensive problems with scale-out, scale-up or accelerated computing solutions.
Available in one to four chassis in a single, standalone cabinet, the three compute configurations for the Cray CX1000 system include the Cray CX1000-C, Cray CX1000-G and the Cray CX1000-S. The compute-based Cray CX1000-C features the dual-socket Intel Xeon Processor 5600 series for scale-out cluster computing; the Cray CX1000-G utilises the Nvidia Tesla GPUs for accelerator-based HPC; and the Cray CX1000-S offers users symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) nodes for up to 128 cores of 'big memory' computing built on Intel's QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) technology.
