Colfax Intros Cluster for HPC

Colfax International announces cluster based on AMD Opteron Processors, Mellanox InfiniBand, and Windows Compute Cluster Server

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Colfax International, a global supplier of fully-customizable, high-performance workstations, servers, clusters, and storage solutions, today announced availability of the CX950, the worlds first cluster that unites the power of the AMD Opteron™ 2000 Series processors, Mellanox InfiniBand, and Wolfram gridMathematica 2 under Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003.

Designed as a turnkey solution for the most compute-intensive applications in financial services, energy, engineering, research, and other markets, the CX950 offers significant price/performance advantages for many high-performance workloads and is already certified for use with Wolfram Research’s gridMathematica 2, with other vendor certifications pending.

“Many enterprises in financial services and other industries are most comfortable with Windows technology, but until now, they have had to settle for limited performance for their compute-intensive needs,” said Gautam Shah, president and CEO of Colfax International. “The CX950 offers world-class performance, scalability, and cost-effectiveness in a Windows-based cluster.”
