. The Intel® Cluster Ready Voyager Award 2009 has been assigned to Eurotech “for advancing toward Petascale Computing with Aurora, the scalable, high-end, Intel® Cluster Ready certified HPC system” in a celebration held during the SC09, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis.
“We are honored to be the recipient of this prestigious award”, said Walter Rinaldi, Aurora Product Manager at Eurotech, “compliance with the Intel® Cluster Ready is central in our strategy for delivering cutting edge technology our customers can capitalize on immediately.”
Aurora is the efficient supercomputing solution that has been designed to provide an environment where hardware and software are seamlessly integrated.
“The Intel® Cluster Ready certification ensures that Aurora provides a hardware, software, manageability and functionality basis that eliminates the complexity traditionally found in HPC clusters”, said Dr. Herbert Cornelius, Director Advanced Computing Center, Intel® EMEA. “Crucial aspects, such as software compatibility and completeness, interoperability and robust system management are ensured in an Intel® Cluster Ready environment such as the one provided by the Aurora cluster solution”.
Aurora is the HPC system that is a leader for power efficiency and TCO reduction and packs the most advanced features, such as liquid cooling, the Unified Network Architecture™ with 100Gb/s bandwidth per node and an on-board programmable accelerator.
