High Density Compute Accelerator (HDCA)
High Density Compute Accelerator
One Stop Systems, Inc. (OSS), the leader in PCIe expansion products, announced a demonstration today of the first optical PCIe interface board with MXC connectors at Supercomputing '14. Now x8 PCIe 3.0, operating at 64Gb/s, can be transmitted over state-of-the-art MXC passive optical cables, offering a huge advantage in cost and performance to data centers. The board is enabled using Intel® Silicon Photonics technology. The new adapter also supports the PCIe sideband signals and Spread Spectrum Clock Isolation. The adapter card is a half-height, half-length card. In addition, the operating system is transparent so no drivers are required.One Stop Systems, Inc. (OSS), the leader in PCI Express (PCIe) appliances for HPC applications, features the first PCIe 3.0 expansion appliance to support up to sixteen Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors in the Intel Pavilion at SC'14. The preconfigured appliance is targeted for data centers operating HPC applications, providing the user with a complete appliance that solves many integration issues, provides enhanced performance, and allows for scalable flexibility. The user simply attaches the High Density Compute Accelerator, or HDCA, to up to four servers and has hundreds or thousands of additional compute cores readily available. Each connection operates at PCIe x16 3.0 with speeds of up to 128Gb/s.
"We are extremely happy to partner with Intel to provide this exceptional hardware solution to support the many application needs for processing data," said Steve Cooper, OSS CEO. "With support of up to 16 Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors, the HDCA adds over 19Tflops of compute power to your server or servers. It can be attached to one server to add a full 19 Tflops of compute power or to up to four servers, each gaining 5Tflops of additional compute power. In addition, the HDCA is tested thoroughly with your server to insure a quick startup. We will provide you with a list of qualified servers. Installation is also quick and easy.
The High Density Compute Accelerator equipped with Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors is available immediately. Call our application engineers to best determine which Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors meet your specific technical and pricing requirements.
