EUDORA, KS, Aug 2, 2004 -- TeamHPC, Inc today introduced its next generation of PROServe (Parallel Rapid Operational) servers, providing researchers with a cost effective alternative for enhanced computational clustering. PROServe servers have been developed around the new Intel ® 64 bit XEON ™ microprocessors (code named “Nocona”) with EMT (Extended Memory Technology) and are expected to be an industry leader in enabling the transition to 64-bit computing. TeamHPC, Inc has also packaged its clustering solutions with a wide selection of storage solutions directed at numerous customer applications. Storage solutions range from simple SCSI or SATA external devices capable of delivering up to 4 terabyte each to complex storage configurations with the openly available Lustre file system or professionally packaged parallel file systems from TerraScale and Polyserve.With over 25 years of combined experience and a seasoned team of Linux engineers, TeamHPC Inc. is delivering the most cost effective high performance clustering solutions to Universities, National Labs and Fortune 500 organizations. In an effort to facilitate researchers, TeamHPC Inc. has also set up an array of demonstration clusters. The demo clusters allow individuals to log in and test applications on the new Intel ® Xeon technology. Performance benchmarks are then diagnosed to allow a real-time view of how different applications perform on different architecture configurations. “The Demo machines really provide a comparative platform of what customers should expect as they begin the tedious task of procuring clustering solutions. Our ability to grasp and understand this market place is experienced every time we have a prospective or current customer utilize our demonstration machines,” said Bret Stouder, President of TeamHPC, Inc. “Not only does this approach allow researchers to diagnose their application performance, it also allows system administrators an early snap shot of how their machines will be configured when they are delivered.” TeamHPC, Inc is one of the first companies to offer the latest Intel Xeon platform for benchmarking and application testing. The newest Intel Xeon processors feature 800MHz front side bus speeds which will allow for increased memory to processor data transfers, new DDR 2 memory technology and PCI Express input/output (I/O) technology. PROServe servers are available in dual processor configurations ranging from 3.0GHz to 3.6GHz microprocessor clock speeds and can address up to 16GB of DDR1 or DDR 2 memory.
