FREMONT, Calif., May 15 -- Penguin Computing, experts in high performance computing (HPC), today announced the immediate availability of its latest additions to the E-series server line, the Relion 800E and the Relion 2804E.
The Relion 2804E is a four-way system designed for maximum performance. Based on Intel's new 'Sandy-Bridge EP' E5-4600 processor, the Relion 2804E accommodates four processors with up to 32 cores in a 2U form factor. With 48 dual in-line memory module (DIMM) slots, the system supports up to 1.5TB of memory and four memory channels per processor provide ample memory bandwidth per core. The Relion 2804E is the ideal server platform for running virtualization and high performance computing applications, as well as enterprise applications like relational databases.
"The Relion 2804E and 800E perfectly complement our new line of servers built for the needs of the enterprise," said Phil Pokorny, CTO of Penguin Computing. "For users that need the highest levels of performance the 2804E delivers, and with 1.5TB of RAM, it supports even the most memory intensive applications. The 800E offers the highest levels of efficiency and is the ideal platform for large scale deployments where its cost-effectiveness, reliability and great efficiency minimize TCO."
The Relion 800E is a cost-effective 1U two-way server designed for maximum performance per watt per square foot. It is ideal for web server farms and other deployment scenarios that need to accommodate network and I/O driven workloads in environments with power and cooling constraints. The Relion 800E features two Intel E5-2400 processors based on the 'Sandy Bridge EN' architecture. With 12 DIMM slots the Relion 800E supports up to 384GB of RAM and three memory channels per processor. The Relion 800E's efficiency is achieved through special design features such as high efficiency voltage-regulators, a spread core design and highly efficient power supplies.
Like all other models in Penguin Computing's E-series, the Relion 800E and the Relion 2804E have been engineered to deliver the highest levels of reliability and include a comprehensive set of software tools for server deployment and management. The Relion 800E and the Relion 2804E come with a standard four year warranty and 24/7 technical phone support with priority handling by dedicated support engineers.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
