Scalable Systems Distributes "HP2C" Products - Leading-Edge High-Performance and
Hi-Productivity Computing Systems in Japan
Turnkey Consultation Supports Immediate, Affordable and Best
Suited System Integrations for Customer Needs
Scalable Systems today announced that it began distribution
of VXTECH (Division of CIARA Technologies) server products and Panasas ActiveStor Parallel Storage Clusters in Japan to address customer demand for
high-performance and hi-productivity computing system needs. Scalable Systems
works with CIARA, Panasas and other vendors to design and develop these
high-performance systems to meet exact customer requirements and provide a
variety of solutions to integrate best suited systems to customers workloads.
The following products are now available through Scalable
Panasas ActiveStor Parallel Storage Cluster
The Panasas ActiveStor parallel storage solution meet the
demands of a massively parallel data movement by offering scalable performance
and capacity via an object-based approach to storage. With simple management and
a single virtual namespace, Panasas accelerates time to results for engineers
and scientists. Linux clusters have evolved as the computational solution in
engineering and science environments. To generate true business value from these
cluster computing advances, organizations require a scalable, easy-to-manage and
cost-effective way to administer the large datasets at the core of these
NEXXUS 4000 Personal Cluster
The NEXXUS 4000R is a pedestal Personal Cluster for the High
Performance Computing (HPC) market. This IntelR Core?2 Duo Processors based
cluster server is the ideal platform for clients who have technical or
mission-critical applications that require high processor count and fast
Based on a pedestal design, the NEXXUS 4000R is an alternative to traditional
datacenter centric solution. NEXXUS is a Personal Cluster system for IT or
Research departments looking to leverage the benefits of IntelR standardization.
With the flexibility to accommodate 8 Dual Core IntelR processors (16 cores),
the NEXXUS 4000R is the perfect answer to your increasing computing needs.
FUSION1200 x86 SMP System
FUSION 1200 is a scalable 12-processor SMP system for the
High Performance Technical Computing (HPTC) market. Available in both deskside
and 19-inch rack-mount design, the FUSION 1200 is a scalable alternative to
traditional RISC based servers. FUSION 1200 Series is an enterprise-class system
for an IT department looking to leverage the benefits of Intel standards in a
data center. With the flexibility to grow from 12 to 48 Intel Xeon processors
(single or dual core), the FUSION 1200 Series scales beyond conventional Intel
based platforms while delivering superior price-performance compared to
traditional high-end servers. The SMP operational model of the FUSION 1200
provides reduced management costs compared to clusters. This Intel Xeon
processor based server, supporting Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology and the
ScaleMP vSMP architecture, is the ideal platform for clients with applications
that require high processor count and large shared memory.
VXRACK? is the world's most dense cluster system. It delivers
unparalleled computing power, scalability, redundancy and performance for HPC
needs. VXRACK? achieves extreme high-density architecture by using commodity
off-the-shelf Intel components. It triples the current rack density using 1U
servers and surpasses any other blade technology. VXRACK? achieves excellence in
terms of computing power (more than 3.45 Tflops per rack space). With onboard
PCI slot, each VXBLADE? can operate with off-the-shelf PCI add-on cards, such as
InfiniBand, Quadrics, FC HBA or others to fulfill today's stringent application
requirements VXRACK? will set the industry standard.
component selection to the latest in system architecture, VXPROR
Servers are designed to provide you with uninterrupted service, and help you
meet all your business needs. The VXPROR
server is available in Tower or Rack-mount (1U, 2U and 3U) format. In addition
to supporting outstanding processing performance, the VXPROR
Servers support high levels of I/O performance in a flexible, cost-effective
fashion. For pure growth potential and speed in an x64 rack server, the VXPROR
server line is the fastest, most reliable, and most expandable one-way and
two-way server in its class. The VXPROR
servers are based on IntelR
Duo or IntelR
Processors that support many new IntelR
advanced server technologies. New technologies mean enhanced performance. Intels
Dual-Core processing power lies at the heart of the VXPROR
server line. Hardware virtualization technology now comes built into every
processor. Add fully-buffered DIMM memory and the result is up to a 150%
performance increase for processor-intensive applications. In addition to
improving performance, we have also lowered system power consumption by more
than 20%, for an overall 190% improvement in performance per watt.
