The Cirrascale® VB5400 Series blade server, featuring the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor, is designed to provide highly parallel processing to power innovative breakthroughs without overhauling applications or code. No other vendor provides the ability to place eight of these powerful coprocessors into a single server and scale performance to the levels seen in the Cirrascale VB5400 Series solution.
This incredible scalability is delivered by a proprietary 80-lane PCIe switch designed by Cirrascale engineers. The VB5400 Series blade server integrates dual PCIe switches enabling it to support eight Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors in a single scalable system. Each Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor can provide a theoretical one Teraflop of performance in just one PCIe slot and, once integrated with a Cirrascale PCIe switch, enables the VB5400 blade server to produce an impressive 8 Teraflops of theoretical performance in one 5VU blade server chassis. When placed in the award-winning Cirrascale BladeRack® 2 XL platform, the solution can scale to provide 96 Teraflops of performance in one rack making it one of the densest High Performance Computing solutions available.
Customers deploying this next generation HPC scale-out infrastructure benefit from the combination of Intel's latest processor platforms with Cirrascale's Vertical Cooling Technology, enabling extreme density and scalability with unmatched efficiency and reliability.
The Cirrascale VB5400 blade server and Cirrascale proprietary PCIe switch are both immediately available to order and will begin shipping subject to the announced component availability. Licensing opportunities for these technologies are also available immediately to both customers and partners.
Custom Configurations To Fit Your Specific Needs
Cirrascale supports multiple configurations and can tailor any system to your specific needs.
