Today Dell Data Center Solutions (DCS) is announcing the PowerEdge C6145, number four in our line of offerings targeted specifically at High Performance Computing. This AMD-based system, which is one of the highest performing 2U boxes out there, contains two four-socket servers for a total of 96 cores.
The HPC beat goes on
When we in DCS launched our PowerEdge C line almost a year ago, our first HPC-focused machine was the Intel-based C6100. We followed it three months later with our C410x expansion chassis to supercharge it and then, three months after that, we came out with the AMD version of the C6100, the PowerEdge C6105. Now three months after that system debuted we are unveiling the C6145. All three servers come in the same 2U package but with differing chips and architectures targeted at different HPC application types.
Check out the video below and let the C6145 architect, John Stuewe take you on a quick tour of this new muscle machine.
Hairy problem solver
The PowerEdge C6145 with its 755FLOPS and up to 1T of memory is specifically geared to solving big problems involving huge and complex data sets in mapping, visualization, simulations and rendering, and solving them faster. With regards to efficiency, the shared infrastructure design of the system can reduce the number of individual fans by 1/4 compared to traditional 2U systems with less power needed to cool and resulting in higher performance per watt, per dollar.
Super charge it
As if 96 cores packed into 2U wasn’t powerful enough, you can take your workloads “to 11″ with the help of the PowerEdge C410x. The C410x PCIe expansion chassis allows you to double the server to graphics processing unit (GPU) ratio to 1:8 to create a number-crunching uber powerhouse.
Dell DCS has been listening to their HPC customers and rolling out systems to meet their needs, today we’ve announced the latest in our line up, the PowerEdge C6145.
