    PR: Linux NetworX Doubles the Density of Its Award-winning Evolocity(TM) Cluster
    Posted by Kenneth Farmer (Wednesday November 13 2002 @ 11:18AM EST) [ ]
    E2 Already Powering World's Fastest Linux Supercomputer

    SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 13, 2002 - At the SC2002 trade show next week in Baltimore, Linux NetworX will unveil Evolocity(TM) II (E2), its next generation cluster design with 0.8U nodes, which allows 100 CPUs to fit into a standard 42U rack - a 20 percent density improvement over 1U nodes. While E2 is being officially launched at SC2002, Linux NetworX has already implemented the technology when it delivered the world's fastest Linux cluster supercomputer to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in Oct. 2002.

    The original Evolocity broke away from traditional horizontal node designs with an innovative, patented vertical configuration, and later received a Best of Show award at the 2000 Netword+Interop trade show. The vertical design naturally allows for more airflow and improved heat dissipation within each node. The new E2 design remains vertical, but doubles the density of the previous design.

    "Linux NetworX has designed a sub 1U node that is capable of utilizing the very latest processor and interconnect technologies - many other ultra-dense node and blade designs only offer outdated processor components and don't allow the use of high-speed interconnects," said Joshua Harr, Linux NetworX CTO. "The E2 design ensures Linux NetworX customers have the most powerful, dense, reliable, and manageable cluster solution available."

    E2 is a complete turnkey cluster solution providing ultra-dense computational nodes, award-winning ICE(TM) cluster management tools and Linux NetworX integration and professional services.

    Early E2 Successes

    -First E2 installed by Linux NetworX at LLNL, system ranks as the world's fastest Linux cluster supercomputer and expected to rank as one of the top five fastest supercomputers.

    -Linux NetworX is also building a 10 teraFLOP E2 cluster for Los Alamos National Laboratory.

    -Argonne National Laboratory system achieves greater than one teraFLOP performance with 350 E2 nodes.

    E2 Features:
    -Sub 1U node design (0.8U)
    -Patented vertical design
    -Proven 10+ Tflop capability
    -Thermal efficiency with optimal airflow
    -Easy-to-use system management and administration tools
    -LinuxBIOS for improved management capabilities
