Industry's first high frequency server to offer extreme speeds for high speed trading
MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 12 -- Appro, a leading provider of supercomputing solutions, once again takes the leadership role introducing the new 3U Appro HF1 server, the Industry's first High Frequency server available based on Intel Xeon Processors 5600 series. This product will be available to order in limited quantities in 2010 and will ship in volume in Q1 2011.
The Appro HF1, High Frequency server is a rack mount industry standard platform offering optimized overclocked capabilities and liquid-cooling features to maintain a stable thermal operation. This server is finely tuned to provide exceptional speed and performance for the Financial Industry delivering reliability and price/performance to support high-speed trading applications.
The server offers dual Intel Xeon Processors X5680 series overclocked up to 4.4GHz on each CPU core, with a theoretical peak performance of up to 211GF. It offers up to 48GB of memory operating up to 1440MHz. This server provides extreme processor and memory performance while offering server-class reliability, availability, serviceability and manageability. The Appro HF1 server is integrated with two on board Gigabit Ethernet ports and seven PCI-e Gen 2 slots per server featuring ease of integration, network compatibility, and fast deployment. The Appro HF1 server also offers remote server management capabilities, high-speed interconnect options and a variety of configurations to include Linux Operating System.
Ideal customers are in the financial industry, especially the high-frequency and electronic trading, hedge funds and proprietary trading firms. Industries that can take advantage of the high CPU clock frequency and overclocked memory will also benefit from this solution.
"Appro's announcement today represents a fundamental change of how we use technology," said John Lee, vice president of advanced technology solutions at Appro. "Now, customers can have high performance computing that is differentiated for their market segment demands. Appro offers innovative, customer-focused server platforms and cluster technologies that optimize the performance and utilization of IT investments."
"Performance-passionate customers in high frequency trading and financial systems need cutting-edge performance at the boundary of innovation," said Rajeeb Hazra, general manager of high-performance computing at Intel Corporation. "The Appro HF1 server exemplifies Appro's innovation in high performance computing systems. By taking full advantage of the smaller, faster and more energy-efficient transistors in our Intel Xeon Processor 5600 series, the Appro HF1 server offers an excellent platform for high-speed processing deployments and lower-latency solutions."
