Penguin Computing®, provider of high performance computing, enterprise data center and cloud solutions, today announced completion of the company’s major technology transition to the Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform for all Penguin Computing product lines.
“Penguin Computing’s server solution offers an unrivaled array of compute and storage form factors, in standard 19” EIA, Open Compute and Tundra™ Extreme Scale platform,” said William Wu, Director of Product Management, Penguin Computing. “We are excited to introduce Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform based solutions into our versatile Relion® and Tundra™ product lines to tackle today’s computing challenges. Organizations looking to deploy across Data Centers, Cloud Computing, hyper-scale HPC and Deep Learning will find Penguin Computing’s unique and expanding solutions to meet their needs.”
Intel Xeon Scalable platform provides increased performance, a unified stack optimized for key workloads including data analytics, and adjacencies of networking, acceleration and storage. The platform’s increased performance is realized through innovations including Intel® AVX-512 extensions that can deliver up to 2x FLOPS per clock cycle, which is especially important for HPC, data analytics and security/cryptography workloads. Along with numerous acceleration refinements, the new platform offers integrated 10 Gb/s Ethernet or 100 Gb/s Intel® Omni-Path architecture fabric options. With these improvements, the Intel Xeon Scalable Processor yielded an increase of up to 8.2x more double precision GFLOPS/sec when compared to Intel Xeon processor E5 family (codenamed Sandy Bridge), and a 2.27x increase over the previous-generation Intel Xeon processor E5 v4 (codenamed Broadwell)…
