The server has 1,024 GB of shared DRAM for reduced simulation times, preprocessing, and parallel applications. The shared memory configuration is large enough so users can eliminate swap-to-disk for high-powered simulations in science, electronic design automation, mechanical engineering, and research.
The server allows users to manage critical workflows on a modular, scalable system that features Intel's Xeon CPU and compiler technology. Intel's latest Fortran and C++ Compiler technology helps the NumberSmasher vSMP deliver more power with higher efficiency and lower total cost of ownership. Microway said that a single Linux operating system and remote server monitoring improve manageability and reliability while offering a choice of threaded or MPI parallelism.
The company recently sold its first NumberSmasher vSMP to the National Institutes of Health. The server was on sale at the conference for $19,995. It features a 16-core, 2U system, 128 GB DRAM -- 667-MHz, 4-TB disk. A modular scalable system offers up to 128 cores (with 32 Intel Xeon Quad Core 3 GHz CPUs -- E5472), up to 1 TB hot-swap hard disk drives and works on Linux OS and Intel Compiler Suite 10.1.
