Hardware techman wrote in about new high performance cluster offerings from IBM and OctigaBay based on AMD Opteron processors.

IBM announced the availability of 64-bit processing power for the IBM Cluster 1350, a leading-edge Linux cluster solution. The new high-density IBM e325 Model 240, 242 and 246 nodes offer 1 or 2 AMD Opteron processors running at speeds of 1.4GHz, 1.6GHz and 2.0GHz, respectively.

The Cluster 1350 combines AMD64 technology, fast networking and storage to create flexible turnkey solutions for high performance computing (HPC) and commercial application environments.

OctigaBay introduced today a new High Performance Computing (HPC) platform that promises three times greater price/performance over state-of-the-art HPC servers. The OctigaBay 12K combines breakthrough interconnect and management technologies with AMD Opteron 64-bit processors, overcoming major shortcomings that severely limit performance, reliability and usability. These innovations make the OctigaBay 12K ideal for simulation, modeling, searching, sorting, data mining and other processing intensive applications.

Thirty times faster than Gigabit Ethernet, the OctigaBay 12K high speed interconnect fuses the AMD Opteron 64-bit processors directly to a high performance interconnect fabric through an innovative communications technology, eliminating bottlenecks inherent in today's solutions.
