COMPUTER & CONTROL SOLUTIONS INC. (CCSI) ANNOUNCES CLUSTERON™
The CCSI Clusteron™ is a coordinated rack and Dual CPU server (Node) solution, with integrated cooling system, designed to support AMD AthlonTM MP processor technology. The CCSI Clusteronä is designed for supercomputing applications, high density server installations, Beowulf clusters and other compute-intensive applications.
“The Clusteron™, with CCSI Hexa-Side™ cooling, has excellent air flow management to insure Thermally Correct™ processor cooling. Automatic air dampers maintain the correct air flow when a node is removed. CCSI has engineered its Clusteron™ systems to run extremely cool and deliver full performance in the most demanding applications,” says Rockney Alavi, president of CCSI.
Each node in a Clusteron™ cluster has all ports and connections front-accessible, so rear access is not needed – allowing the Clusteron™ to be mounted back-to-back or against a wall. The Clusteron™ cabinet is 24” by 24”, with a footprint of just 4 square feet. In a 10’ by 12’ room, you can install 18 Clusteron™ cabinets vs. 5 standard racks; if each rack is populated with 40 nodes, you can house up to 720 Clusteron™ nodes vs. 200 nodes in the standard racks (3.6 times greater density, plus superior cooling). Circuit breaker power distribution panel and Baseboard Server Management Unit are mounted in the enclosure, along with integrated cable management and wiring trough, air filters, and many more features.
“CCSI’s Clusteron provides our customers with an AMD Athlon MP-based supercomputing system. AMD Athlon MP processors can reduce computing cycles, allowing customers to achieve more work in less time,” said Ed Gasiorowski, director of developer relations for AMD’s Computation Products Group. “AMD processors can offer cluster computing customers increased speed, performance and reliability.”
The Clusteron™ will be on display in AMD’s booth # 1544 and CCSI’s booth # 2022 at SC2002 trade show in Baltimore MD on November 18-2002.
