|Compucon TwinBlade Server|
The Compucon TwinBlade Server represents a breakthrough in blade system design by doubling the number of dual-processor (DP) compute nodes per 7U enclosure from 10 to 20. The Compucon TwinBlade offers the highest computing density and thus the highest general computing performance in the world. It supports a total of 40 processor sockets per 7U enclosure and 1920 logical processor cores per 42U rack using the current Intel Xeon 5500-series processor. With the release of the next-generation Intel Xeon 5600-series processors (as of March 2010) the figure increases to 2880 logical processor cores per 42U rack. The 32nm die shrink of the Xeon chip, codenamed Westmere, will offer 6 physical and 12 logical cores.
With N+1 redundant, high efficiency (94%) 2500W power supplies, the TwinBlade is also the greenest, most energy-efficient blade server in the industry. Up to two 4x QDR InfiniBand switches, 10GbE switches or pass-through modules give the TwinBlade the bandwidth to support the most demanding applications. Onboard IPMI 2.0 with KVM over IP and remote Virtual Media over LAN enables ease of management and control.
