the Saturn 270 HE personal cluster with sixteen AMD Opteron processor
cores. Available with up to 64 GB total RAM and 8 Gbps total network
bandwidth, Saturn brings serious 64-bit cluster computing power to
your desk in a compact, quiet and affordable package.
Quiet, Cool, Efficient and Productive
Saturn features the power-efficient, high-performance, 64-bit
Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor Model 270 HE. Powered from a standard
wall outlet, the Saturn chassis provides significant airflow without
generating excessive noise.
Rocketcalc's highly efficient Saturn systems are turn-key,
ready-to-run GNU/Linux clusters with SuSE™ Linux and a wide selection
of available performance-tuned popular HPC software. Designed from the
beginning as a personal computing cluster, the Saturn series addresses
the power and noise constraints of an office or bench-side setting
without compromising the requirements of a high performance computing
application. A comprehensive selection of available optimized HPC
applications and simple, secure web-based access tools make Saturn
remarkably productive and easy-to-use right out of the box. As easy to
manage as a traditional workstation, Saturn sets a new standard for
high-performance computing versatility.
"The dual-core Saturn brings an unprecedented level of cluster
computing power to the workstation. The AMD Opteron processor provides
proven high performance, high efficiency, and affordability. Our
customers agree it is an amazing architecture," said Dr. Bryan Lewis,
general manager at Rocketcalc.
"The low power consumption and industry-leading application
performance of the AMD Opteron processor is ideal for enterprise-class
data centers and at the same time is driving innovations like
Rocketcalc personal cluster systems," said Patrick Patla, director of
Server/Workstation marketing at AMD. "Rocketcalc is taking the
concept of clustered systems for high-performance computing
applications directly to the work area and empowering individuals
working on complex problems with 64-bit capability that is cool, quiet
and simple to manage."
