Force10 Networks has announced that IBM is integrating the TeraScale E-Series family of switch/routers and the S-Series family of data center switches into its System Cluster 1350 to deliver the 10 Gigabit Ethernet density and scalability computing clients require for high performance workloads. The recently upgraded Cluster 1350 combines the Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet densities of the Force10 TeraScale E-Series and S-Series and IBM's experience with clustered UNIX and Linux computers.
"Our clients value the performance and single point-of-control the Cluster 1350 solution delivers, and the addition of 10 Gigabit Ethernet servers and interconnectivity provides the throughput that will allow them to handle growing workloads," said Wendy McGee, product director of cluster solutions at IBM.
Earlier this month, IBM announced that it is upgrading its Cluster 1350 solution to include a new lineup of next generation processor systems and blades, high speed connectivity and coprocessor acceleration technology. To interconnect its Cluster 1350 solutions, IBM is using the Force10 TeraScale E-Series and S-Series. With 16-port and 8-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet line cards, the TeraScale E-Series delivers the density IBM clients require to scale their networks as they add computing capacity. The compact Force10 S2410 delivers high 10 Gigabit Ethernet density with Infiniband-like latency that enables clients to link high speed servers at line-rate 10 Gigabits per second.
Organizations in 13 countries have deployed the IBM System Cluster 1350 with the Force10 TeraScale E-Series. In North America, the Georgia Institute of Technology deployed the Cluster 1350 solution to build a 1,000 node supercomputer designed to advance drug research. In Europe, the Barcelona Supercomputing Center deployed the System Cluster 1350 to power the one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world.
"IBM is pioneering the effort to bring high performance computing solutions into mainstream markets, enabling organizations to efficiently capture the benefits of cluster computing," said Mark Cooper, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Force10 Networks. "The Force10 TeraScale E-Series and S-Series provide the flexibility and scalability that enable IBM to deliver the right solutions to each client."
