Aurora Au-5600, the Petascale supercomputer by Eurotech sets a new efficiency record with an innovative hot water cooling technology
New Orleans (LA, USA), November 15, 2010
– Eurotech, a leading designer and supplier of HPC systems, presents today Aurora Au-5600
, the revolutionary supercomputer that delivers Petascale performance with one of the best PUE (Power Usage Efficiency) on the market.
Aurora is a family of supercomputers featuring a PUE less than 1, a record breaking power efficiency that translates in great savings and in more environmental-friendly installations.
At 40 TFLOPS per rack, Aurora is one of the most compact HPC (High Performance Computing) systems and, thanks to its innovative hot water cooling technology, it is also totally noiseless.
Aurora comes with a unique hot water cooling technology that does not require chillers; with a precision direct delivery of coolant to each component, it achieves unsurpassed heat removal efficiency and extreme computational density.
“Aurora is the ideal system for anyone needing a scalable system with an exceptional TCO”, said Niels Grønlund, Eurotech HPC Director of Sales and Marketing, “It is a radically new way to approach supercomputing and it brings unmatched benefits at any scale, up and beyond the PetaFLOP”.
Each Aurora node provides switchless and switched connectivity: a 60Gb/s 3D torus and one 40Gb/s Infiniband link allow mixed mode computation where the optimal topology is transparently selected.
Check out a live Aurora system at Eurotech’s booth #1849 in Supercomputing 2010, New Orleans, LA (USA).
