RENO, Nev. -- HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced new high-performance computing platforms designed to help midsize businesses compete more effectively by taking advantage of the powerful technologies that have transformed engineering and research in some of the worlds largest enterprises.
Highlighting the launch at the Supercomputing 2007 tradeshow is the HP Cluster Platform Workgroup System, which offers affordable, high-performance computing without the hassle, complexity and expense of an enterprise-level system.
Built on the HP BladeSystem c3000, the system delivers almost a teraflop per second of computing power while occupying only two square feet of floor space.
Ideal for HPC applications in computer-aided engineering (CAE), oil and gas, financial services, and life and material sciences environments, the HP CP Workgroup System enables customers to run larger and more difficult compute-intensive workloads faster providing seven times as much simulation performance as a single-node system.
Further expanding its midsize business technology offerings, HP also introduced midsize Solution Blocks for material science and CAE, and a high-density x86 server ideal for HPC environments.
