The Triton Compute Cluster is an Appro HyperGreen Cluster based on the new Intel Xeon processor 5500 series. The design utilizes 90%-plus efficient power supplies and a 20% power reduction compared with standard rack servers. The cluster features Appro gB222X Blade Server nodes with dual quad-core Intel Xeon E5530 processors with Intel Microarchitecture Nehalem, running at 2.40 GHz. Each of the 256 nodes has 24 gigabytes of memory and an eight-megabyte cache. In addition, Triton has four front-end nodes to handle administrative tasks.
See the complete processor details on the Intel specifications page [external].
Each node has a 10-gigabit Myrinet connection, giving the system a total bandwidth capacity of 256 gigabytes per second. The cluster has a peak theoretical throughput of approximately 20 teraflops and contains six terabytes of memory.
See complete specs on the HyperGreen Cluster Solution at the Appro HPC products page.
