    Liquid Computing Interconnect Driven Server to Feature AMD Processors
    Posted by Kenneth Farmer, Wednesday November 02 2005 @ 11:57PM EST

    OTTAWA, ONTARIO AND PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA --(CCNMatthews - Nov. 2, 2005) - Liquid Computing Corp., developer of a new class of scalable server for high performance computing, announced today that LiquidIQ will feature the AMD Opteron processor.

    LiquidIQ delivers a set of managed computing and communications resources that can be configured with software commands into one or several cluster configurations, shared memory or cache coherent server regions. Combining the AMD Opteron processor, the world's leading x86 CPU, with Liquid Computing's superior Interconnect Driven Server architecture has created a computing system that can exceed the performance and scalability levels of legacy machines and standard commodity clusters.

    "When developing the LiquidIQ system architecture, it was very important that we collaborated with companies whose technologies could help deliver on our aggressive performance, scalability and time to market requirements," said Mike Kemp, CTO of Liquid Computing. "AMD and HyperTransportTM technology gave us a clear and straightforward means to build a highly scalable and reliable data path across our system."

    LiquidIQ, featuring Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors, will allow organizations to deploy the most powerful high performance computing (HPC) systems at best life-cycle economics. Liquid Computing will be using the Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor for its first generation Compute Modules. As part of this collaboration, Liquid Computing has ensured that as AMD continues to introduce next generation processors, its Compute Modules can be upgraded to take advantage of chipset advances, yet maintain interoperability with legacy AMD processors and x86 based applications that remain in production.

    "Liquid Computing's integration of Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors into their unique Interconnect Driven Server architecture implementation is further validation that our dual-core processors are the ideal option for delivering a high level of computing performance," said Patrick Patla, director of server/workstation marketing at AMD. "We are pleased to work with Liquid Computing to provide new solutions for the High Performance Computing industry."

    The benefits of AMD's dual-core technology are particularly applicable to customers in the HPC market who require significant computing power to run complex codes and simulations. Liquid Computing is enabling the convergence of computing and communications networks to introduce a disruptive change in the high performance computing and enterprise computing markets.

    Supercomputing 2005

    Liquid Computing and AMD will be providing information regarding their collaboration at Supercomputing 2005 this November in Seattle http://sc05.supercomputing.org/ . Liquid Computing will be exhibiting in the AMD booth, #614, and featuring the alpha version of LiquidIQ. The demonstration unit will also feature third party simulation software.

    In addition, Liquid Computing's CTO Mike Kemp will be giving a presentation entitled "HPC Developers Beware: Know Thy Networks" on Tuesday November 15 at 10:30 a.m. in room 617.

    About Liquid Computing
