MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 11 -- Appro, a leading provider of high-performance computing systems, will showcase supercomputing cluster technology demonstrations at the Supercomputing Conference, 2009 show in Portland, Ore., Nov. 16-19 at the Appro booth 1200.
Appro will showcase power-efficient and performance-optimized technology based on Appro's Supercomputing Cluster Architecture for customers looking to accelerate their application results at a lower TCO. The demonstrations will be based on the latest multi-core processing capabilities from Intel Xeon, AMD Opteron and NVIDIA Tesla GPU computing and a sneak preview of the new G34 AMD Opteron platforms to be available in Q1-2010. Appro will also demonstrate in detail its Appro Cluster Engine Management Software, designed specifically for the Appro Xtreme-X Supercomputer. In addition, Appro will have HPC Technology Presentations, give aways and a chance to race in a Renault Formula 1 car simulator!
Appro products to be displayed at the SC09 Exposition include:
Appro Xtreme-X1 Supercomputer running Appro Cluster Engine (ACE) Management Software
The Appro Xtreme-X1 combines high performance computing with high availability and reliability features in a balanced system architecture supported by ACE. ACE is designed to manage large numbers of independent physical computers connected together to function as a single computing system. This robust remote management software suite includes network, server, cluster and storage management.
