Appro Announces Support for New Dual-Core/Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor 5200 and 5400 Series
Posted by Maria McLaughlin, Friday November 09 2007 @ 11:30PM EST

Appro’s Servers, Clusters and Supercomputers based on Intel Xeon Processors boost Performance and Power Efficiency at Low Latency and High Memory Loadings

Milpitas, CA, November 12, 2007 – Appro (http://www.appro.com), a leading provider of high-performance enterprise computing systems announces support for Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5200 series (code name Wolfdale) and the new Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5400 series (code name Harpertown). Appro showcases Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor cluster technologies demonstrations at the SC07 show in Reno, NV, November 13- 16, booth 714.

Appro servers based on the new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5400 series (formerly codenamed "Harpertown") provide outstanding performance and reliability for a broad range of enterprise and technical computing applications. These servers also bring new advancements in memory, power, I/O, and security, optimizing the platform for the demands of multi-core processing. Based on the 45 nm Penryn technology, the 5400 series quad-core provides 50-percent larger and more efficient L2 cache, higher core speeds (3+ GHz), FSB speeds up to 1600, integrated interrupt controllers, new SSE4 instructions, high-performance radix 16 dividers, and other enhancements.

Appro will feature two 1U Appro Dual Socket HyperServer cluster nodes based on the Intel Xeon processor 5400 series for a total of 16 cores. These nodes are connected with two 10 Gbps dual-port Mellanox PCIe InfiniBand Adapters running Fedora Linux. Using these two systems, Appro will be demonstrating the breakthrough performance of the next generation Intel Xeon quad-core processor. Compared to prior platforms, virtually all the MPI benchmarks improved by at least 42% or higher. A white paper will be available with benchmark details and optimization suggestions.

In addition, Appro will be introducing the new Appro Xtreme-X1 Supercomputer based on dual-socket, Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processors. The Appro Xtreme-X1 offers a high value and attractive price/performance package with a significantly reduced TCO for HPC IT organizations. It features a reliable and scalable architecture with 128 nodes/512 Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors and 6TF of computing power in a single 42U equipment rack. The Xtreme-X1 Supercomputer offers Appro Cluster Engine™ Software Management; a carefully layered architecture offering a complete lights-out management solution that comes pre-installed with every system.

“By offering reliable, faster, energy-efficient processing capabilities with increased system performance packaged with outstanding cluster solution integration, customers can build a consolidated and simplified infrastructure that is easy to scale and an ideal solution for High Performance Computing,” said John Lee, Director of Customer and Engineering Services.

About Appro Appro is a leading developer of innovative high-end workstations, density-managed servers, clusters and supercomputers for the high-performance and enterprise-computing markets.
