Control Solutions, Inc (CCSI) offers first high density 1U server,
chassis and power supply recommended by AMD to support the AMD Athlon™
ATLANTA, GA – February. 4,
2002 -- Computer & Control Solutions, Inc. (CCSI), a leading
designer, engineer, and manufacturer of custom, high-density servers
announced today that the new RC 0103 1U chassis featuring dual parallel 1+1 power supplies has become the first
high density 1U server, chassis, and power supply recommended by AMD after having passed AMD’s testing and
evaluation of solutions supporting the AMD Athlon™ MP processor. The RC 0103 accommodates up to two hot swappable
IDE or SCA SCSI hard drives and one internal fixed IDE or SCSI hard
drive plus one slim CD. Now
The new RC- 0103 1U is the platform of choice for
the coolest running and most powerful 1U servers in the market today. In announcing the new RC 0103 1U server, Mr.
Rockney Alavi, President, of Computer & Control Solutions, Inc.
stated, “The peerless RC 0103 1U was specifically designed to meet
and exceed the requirements of high density extreme performance computing
“We are very excited
that Computer and Control Solutions has introduced the RC 0103 1U
chassis and power supply featuring the Wind Tunnel™ cooling system,”
said Rex Meek, director of the Hardware Infrastructure Enablement
Group at AMD. “The RC 0103 1U helps customers build robust server products powered
by the AMD Athlon MP processor.”
Not only does the RC0103 1U support the full range
of AMD Athlon MP processor model numbers, it includes the patent pending
Wind Tunnel™ cooling system that provides unequalled cooling, which
is critical to stable system performance.
The RC0103 chassis with the Wind Tunnel™ cooling system also
provides unequalled high availability by utilizing dual hot swappable
300 Watt power supplies and versatile data storage configurations
including hot swappable hard drives.
These unique features make the RC 0103 the ideal
platform for high density, high availability extreme computing applications
such as Beowulf clusters, artificial intelligence, graphics rendering
and photo-realistic simulation, biometric analysis, web hosting, video
streaming, , financial modeling, CAD/CAM, data mining, and a host
of other applications. The
new RC 0103 is only 17.5" (W) x 26" (D) x 1.69" (H)
The RC 0103 1U is built around a patented chassis
design which contains two custom hot-swappable 300W power supplies;
up to two hot swappable SCSI or IDE hard drives and one internal IDE
or SCSI hard drive, and rear chassis supports.
The RC 0103 1U is the "thoroughbred of 1U chassis"
designed for High Performance Computing without processor speed limitations
and powerful, yet cost effective servers that will find uses in clustered
environments and a host of other computation-intensive applications.
Only the RC 0103 1U avoids chassis obsolescence and allows
"full speed ahead" computing with future ever faster CPU
About the AMD Athlon™ MP Processor
The AMD Athlon MP processor is a seventh-generation
x86 processor designed for high-performance multiprocessing servers
and workstations. A key advantage of AMD’s multiprocessing platform is Smart MP technology,
which greatly enhances overall platform performance by increasing
data movement between the two CPUs, chipset and memory system. Smart
MP technology features dual point-to-point, high-speed 266MHz system
buses with Error Correcting Code (ECC) support designed to provide
up to 2.1GB per second per CPU of bus bandwidth in a dual-processor
system. Smart MP technology also has an optimized Modified Owner Exclusive
Shared Invalid (MOESI) cache coherency protocol that manages data
and memory traffic in a multiprocessing environment.
The new AMD Athlon MP processor features the patented QuantiSpeed™
architecture, which includes a high performance full-speed cache with
hardware data pre-fetch, a fully pipelined superscalar floating point
engine, and an exclusive L2 Translation Look-aside Buffer (TLB). The
processor also incorporates 3DNow!ä Professional
technology, which has 52 new instructions that extend AMD’s 3DNow!
technology, enabling smoother, richer and more lifelike images, more
precise digital audio and an enriched Internet experience.
The new AMD Athlon MP processor is compatible with
AMD’s stable Socket A infrastructure, and supports DDR memory technology.
