Cavium’s ThunderX2 Processors coming to Penguin Computing Tundra OCP Platform – insideHPC


These days Penguin Computing announced availability of its Tundra Severe Scale (ES) server platforms dependent on Cavium second-generation ARMv8-dependent ThunderX2 processors. Tundra ES Valkre servers powered by ThunderX2 processors are now offered for community purchase, and a regular 19” rack mount types will ship in 3rd Calendar Quarter 2017.

Penguin Computing is the primary developer of open up, Linux-dependent, HPC, cloud, and business info center solutions,” explained Jussi Kukkonen, Vice President, Innovative Methods, Penguin Computing. “By extending our product roadmap to Cavium’s second generation 64-bit ARMv8 CPUs in our Tundra family members of Open Compute servers we once more stage up our management position. Our buyers get superb worth from the performance and versatility enabled by OCP infrastructure put together with best-in-course compute efficiency coming from Cavium’s ThunderX2 supplying.”

Penguin Computing offers personalized build-to-purchase server solutions for buyers with specialised hardware necessities in business, economic, federal authorities, bioinformatics and World wide web segments. Penguin Computing has correctly sent countless numbers of datacenter deployments, from departmental HPC clusters to TOP500 course supercomputers and scale-out server farms powering some of the most significant website houses. Extending its ARMv8-dependent server supplying, the new ThunderX2-dependent platforms enables Penguin Computing to offer superior efficiency ARMv8 compute platform with diminished TCO, employing SOCs optimized for exascale computing, in platforms personalized for economic, bioinformatics, World wide web and federal authorities industry segments.

Penguin Computing’s second generation ARM dependent Tundra server platforms that includes Cavium ThunderX2 will concentration on remarkably-scalable Hyperscale and HPC-type workloads together with big info, huge-scale graph analytics, molecular dynamics, and Ceph / Cloud storage. Effectiveness will be pushed by ThunderX2 ARMv8 SOCs optimized for these workloads, with superior-efficiency personalized cores, dual socket coherent connectivity and superior memory bandwidth & capacity. Including to these superior-efficiency characteristics are built-in scale-out IO supporting many x16 PCIe Gen3 ports enabling best-in-course efficiency. In addition, integration of IO interfaces and storage controllers cuts down the two ability and expense, therefore driving superb reductions in TCO.

The momentum for ARM-dependent servers is building and the new array of server products from Penguin Computing enhances preference for the close end users in search of for superior compute efficiency with the most power and expense-efficient solutions,” explained Rishi Chugh, Director, Merchandise Advertising, Cavium. “The new collection of Tundra OCP compliant server family members are nicely suited to tackle the superior compute requires of subsequent generation HPC and Cloud datacenter with superb efficiency and TCO.”

Penguin Computing Tundra servers that includes Cavium ThunderX2 CPUs are offered for consumer analysis setting up in June 2017, with typical availability in the fourth calendar quarter of 2017. Penguin Computing welcomes fascinated get-togethers to call the corporation with regards to the early accessibility method.
