Kent, OH August 18th, 2004 --
Rocketcalc announced today the Unicluster family of compact, high-performance
GNU/Linux clusters based on the Intel® Xeon™ and
AMD® Opteron™ processors.
Well-suited to parallel development and high-performance computing applications,
Unicluster systems are configured with SuSE Linux and a wide selection of
available open-source and commercial parallel applications. Unicluster
systems are ready-to-run GNU/Linux clusters right out of the box.
Systems can be used stand-alone or as a cluster appliance for a desktop PC.
Access from Windows, Mac and GNU/Linux PCs is as simple as surfing
the web thanks to the included VNC (virtual desktop access), and
Houston and Ganglia (cluster control and monitoring) software.
Measuring just 12x14x23in and featuring quiet operation, Unicluster systems
are suitable for office and lab use--anywhere affordable, high-performance
cluster computing is required.
"We designed the Unicluster systems to mimic as closely as possible the
personal computer experience--easy set up and configuration. Unicluster
systems allow professionals to spend less time on cluster configuration
and more time on their creative work. They're great systems for parallel
development and testing. Indeed many of our customers have access to huge
cluster systems but like the flexibility of a dedicated Beowulf-class
cluster system in their office,"
said Dr. Bryan Lewis, general manager at Rocketcalc.
- Saturn Unicluster systems with up to eight
AMD Opteron processors, 8Gbps total network bandwidth, and up to 64GB system
- Titan Unicluster systems with four or
eight Intel Xeon processors, 8Gbps total network bandwidth,
and up to 64GB system RAM (with Xeon EM64T processors).
