Fleet Numerical Transitions Environmental Modeling and Weather Prediction From Legacy to Open Supercomputing With Linux Networx Supersystems

Linux Networx, The Linux Supercomputing Company, today announced that it will use Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ 2000 Series processors in a Linux Networx Supersystem for the US Navy's Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (Fleet Numerical). The system will extend Fleet Numerical's high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure by 5 TFLOPs peak bringing the total center's capability to over 10 TFLOPS peak. Linux Networx was selected for its proven leadership in creating next-generation Linux Supercomputers and for its ability to support customers in their transition from more expensive legacy systems to the price/performance advantages of open Linux Supercomputers.

"The Linux Networx Supersystem met or exceeded all our specifications. As we reviewed our options, it was obvious that Linux Networx was offering a cutting edge system and the promise of a great working partnership," said Mike Clancy, Fleet Numerical's Technical Director. "We were also pleased to be able to take advantage of Next-Generation AMD Opteron processors, which performed exceedingly well on our benchmark codes and not only addressed, but exceeded our expectations in computing power."

The new Linux Supersystem is a 200-compute node cluster with Next-Generation AMD Opteron 2000 Series processors. The system also features Linux Networx performance-tuned storage, the Linux Networx GPFS file system, an Infiniband network and Linux Networx 'accelerator' nodes -- custom tuned to power Fleet Numerical-specific application requirements.

"Linux Networx further demonstrates its leadership in the supercomputing industry by applying next generation technology to deliver new levels in performance per watt," said Pat Patla, Director, Server/Workstation Marketing, AMD (NYSE: AMD). "Our Next-Generation AMD Opteron processors will help Linux Networx continue to offer excellent products and solutions to its customers, without compromising total cost of ownership or performance."

"Linux Networx is committed to providing customers like Fleet Numerical a bridge from expensive, proprietary systems to Linux Supersystems that blend optimum price/performance with technology innovation and enhanced usability," said Bo Ewald, CEO of Linux Networx. "We are pleased to continue our strong collaboration with AMD as part of the Fleet Numerical delivery, as well as within our standard LS Series of Supersystems."

Linux Networx government partners include the Departments of Energy, Defense, and Agriculture, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. Linux Networx partners with these customers to design, integrate, and deploy supercomputing systems that solve their most complex supercomputing challenges.
