ACMA Launches Next-Generation HPC Solutions Optimized for
Latest Intel® Xeon® E7 Family
Designed for the Most Critical Business Demands and the World’s Most Complex Computational Challenges
Fremont, CA – April 5, 2011 – ACMA, a leading provider of innovative high performance computing and storage solutions, today announced the next-generation ACMA Helios 4-way and 8-way HPC server solutions are fully optimized for the latest Intel® Xeon® E7 family processors. The server solutions includes extreme core counts and large memory support, providing unprecedented performance and breakthrough power-efficiency across a variety of HPC deployments, including financial, oil and gas, biomedical, research, and government. These highly configurable systems’ unparalleled performance, coupled with its unmatched ability to execute computing processes, help scientists and engineers solve the world's most complex computational challenges.
The powerful next-generation Helios server platforms deliver blazing 2.67GHz performance and turbo boost technology to achieve even faster speeds, with up to 40% performance improvement for data-intensive software applications such as ANSYS, AMBER 11, Jacket and 3ds Max. The server features up to 10 processing cores and 20 threads, eight sockets, memory support for 2TB with Millbrook2, and additional 30MB of L3 cache, providing the muscle to tackle larger, increasingly complex and floating point applications. It incorporates enhanced encryption processes to increase encryption and decryption rates, resulting in faster execution and added protection against software targeted attacks. Boasting enhanced low-power features, Gold-level power supplies, and C6 power-saving mode, Helios server solutions fuel blistering computational performance while outperforming previous generation systems and consuming the same power consumption. The new processors enable up to 95% lower operating costs and an estimated return on investment in as little as eight months. ACMA’s comprehensive line of highly scalable HPC solutions are especially well suited for web serving, virtualization and cloud computing workloads.
“ACMA is helping usher in a new generation of exciting HPC solutions and computing capabilities, in large part due to the exceptional performance capabilities of Intel’s latest advanced processing technology," said Matt Thauberger, Sr. Technical Sales Manager at ACMA. "The leading system-level power efficiency of our next-generation Helios server systems enables us to deliver extraordinary performance-driven solutions that empower customers to scale, adapt and develop as their computing demands evolve."
