    Penguin Computing Altus Servers Offer New Dual-Core AMD Opteron
    Tuesday September 27 2005 @ 08:12AM EDT

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- 09/26/2005 -- Penguin Computing announced that its new Altus family of Linux-based rackmount servers will now offer the new Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processor Model 280. The combination of reliable, budget-friendly Altus servers and the highest-performance x86 64-bit processors on the market means that customers building high-performance Linux clusters or consolidating datacenters have an even more powerful server solution. The dramatically increased compute power of Penguin Computing's Altus servers with Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors Model 280 can reduce the length of time high performance computing (HPC) applications must run compared to single-core servers, all within existing infrastructure parameters.

    "Customers using the new Altus family of servers will be able to do more, faster and more cost-effectively with the new Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor. This improved performance will enable our customers to run more cycles to tackle their compute intensive applications without having to incur additional costs in power consumption or infrastructure investment," said Bill Cook, senior vice president of sales and services of Penguin Computing. "Immediate implementation of the latest multi-core technology is another example of Penguin's commitment to working closely with other technology leaders to pass on the value of their innovations to our HPC customers as quickly as possible. And migrating to multi-core is easy with the simplified Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor computing infrastructure and a knowledgeable system integrator like Penguin at your side."

    "Penguin Computing continues to be a leader in deploying 64-bit x86 dual-core technology with its integration of the latest series of Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors in Penguin's Linux-based Altus family of servers," said Pat Patla, director, Server/Workstation Marketing, Microprocessor Solutions Sector, AMD (NYSE: AMD). "We are pleased to see such strong adoption of AMD dual-core technology within the Linux-based high performance computing and datacenter markets. Together with companies like Penguin Computing, we are driving computing efficiency to even greater heights."

    AMD's dual-core implementation is another evolution in their revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture, connecting two cores on a single die which helps provide better efficiency and performance than competitive x86 dual-core implementations and single-core processors. The Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor's socket infrastructure is compatible with existing 90nm single-core processor architectures, enabling customers to easily migrate to dual-core technology and deploy quickly.

    The benefits of the new AMD64 dual-core technology are particularly applicable to customers in the HPC arena who require significant compute power to run complex simulations. By incorporating the technology into a variety of configurable Altus server options, Penguin Computing is able to serve those customers looking for fast, efficient building blocks for their cluster or datacenter. Equipped with common components and advanced management capabilities Altus servers are easy to manage and maintain. Each Altus product features hot-swap SATA or SCSI hard drives, hardware RAID controllers, redundant power supplies, Infiniband™ interconnect cards, and PCI-X or PCI-Express® expansion slots to add your own options. As a result, the Altus family allows customers to custom configure solutions to meet their unique needs efficiently and cost-effectively.
