At SC14, Dell unveiled the PowerEdge C4130, the next addition to the Dell PowerEdge server portfolio, and Dell Storage for HPC with Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre software.
Dell PowerEdge C4130, according to Dell, is the only Intel Xeon E5-2600v3 1U server to offer up to four GPUs/accelerators. It has up to 33 percent better GPU/accelerator density than its closest competitors and 400 percent more PCIe GPU/accelerators per processor per rack U than a comparable HP system.
The PowerEdge C4130 can achieve over 7.2 Teraflops on a single 1U server and has a performance/watt ratio of up to 4.17 Gigaflops per watt. This allows customers to further optimize application performance and productivity while unshackling the constraints of traditional datacenter space and energy use, Dell said. The solution incorporates technologies from NVIDIA and Intel.
Dell Storage for HPC with Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre Software combines hardware from Dell and the open-source Lustre software from Intel to deliver the benefits of an HPC file system to enterprise organizations. The solution delivers a higher level of computing power and throughput, making available information and insights derived from big data and compute-intensive applications.
The solution is built on Dell’s PowerEdge servers and Dell Storage MD3460 arrays and MD3060e dense enclosures to provide redundant servers and failover-enabled storage.
Dell Storage for HPC with Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre is one of the first solutions that has been engineered and validated with Intel to bring an HPC file system to enterprise and research organizations of all types, Dell added.
With the new future-ready HPC solutions, Dell helps power the revolutionary discoveries being made by top research organizations and leading IT, computing, industrial and financial companies.
