Haswell Servers

Nicole Hemsoth, HPC Wire, New Haswells Spark Open Season for HPS Systems, here.

Other HPC-oriented vendors, including Penguin Computing, have added to their offerings with the addition of the Open Computing Project designed “Tundra” cluster platform, which is now available in the new Haswell flavor. The Tundra platform, which was announced at SC’13, is capable of supporting 108 servers in a rack by leveraging an OCP-inspired approach that lets the company insert three nodes in 36 “open units”, which means they can fit 90 nodes into a traditional 42U rack. With the original rack, this led to a total of 40 teraflops for a single rack, which while there are still some variables if you’re trying to math out the current performance on those figures, is still far greater with the new Haswells—almost double at highest estimation using the 18-core variant.
