Themis Announces Intel-Based, RES-XR4 High-Density Servers
FREMONT, Calif., April 9 — Themis Computer today announced the Intel-based RES-XR4 High Density (HD) Server for mission-critical, high performance cluster computing environments.
Designed for military, commercial, or industrial use, the Themis RES-XR4 High Density (HD) system is ideally suited for mission-critical, high-performance cluster computing environments where server Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) is severely limited. Compared to a stack of 1U servers, the RES-XR4 HD server can double compute density with a weight savings of nearly 50%.
Combining the robust thermal and kinetic management technology of the RES-XR4 rack mountable server family, Intel Xeon E5-2660 Series processors, and Supermicro X9DRT-IBFF motherboards, the RES-XR4 HD system features a rugged 20-inch deep chassis that houses combinations of three separate, hot-pluggable HD compute modules:
Each RES-XR4-HDS and RES-XR4-HDFS module includes a companion high-density compute module. Storage and Flash storage modules occupy two of four chassis slots. The RES-XR4 HD System offers six configuration options.
All RES-XR4 HD modules support up to three 56 Gb/sec Infiniband (IB) or 40 Gb Ethernet ports to provide industry leading I/O bandwidth. Each RES-XR4 HD module is available with a single high bandwidth I/O port. A FDR option supports 56 Gb/sec IB or 40 Gb/sec Ethernet via a QSFP connector. Alternatively a QDR option supports 40 Gb/sec IB or 10 Gb/sec Ethernet. Each module also has a PCIe expansion slot that supports two additional FDR or QDR ports.
Scalable Servers for Data Center, Virtualization, Clustering, and Cloud Computing Applications
"Themis’ commitment to bring cutting edge technology to the warfighter has never been more evident than with our new RES-XR4 HD server family," says Bill Kehret, President and CEO of Themis. “These servers leverage Themis’ thermal and kinetic design leadership and extend the capability of our popular RES-XR4 servers to mission-critical, high performance cluster computing environments.”
Kehret continued, “RES-XR4 HD systems can be used in a multitude of applications that require high-compute density, combined with large-data storage, closely coupled to the compute resource. These applications include virtualization, ISR, Big Data Analytics, radar processing, image processing, and large Hadoop clusters.”
