Compute Blades

  1. 1. Pinnacle Compute Blades Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron 2-in-1U compute blades advanced clustering technologies www.advancedclustering.com • 866.802.8222
  2. 2. what is a compute blade? • Features and benefits of a modular “blade” system, but designed specifically for the needs of HPC cluster environment • Consists of 2 pieces: • Blade Housing - enclosure to hold the compute modules, mounted into the rack cabinet • Compute Blade Module - complete independent high-end server that slides into the Blade Housing 2
  3. 3. blade housing 1U enclosure that holds 2x Compute blades, standard 19” design - fits in any cabinet. 3
  4. 4. blade module Complete independent compute node - contains CPUs, RAM, disk drives and power supply 4
  5. 5. compute blade key points Each node is 2x Computing power independent - no in the same space impact on other nodes 80+ efficient power Nodes equipped with supplies, low power management engine: CPU and drive options IPMI and iKVM Each compute node is Mix and match modular, removable architecture in same and tool-less blade housing 5
  6. 6. compute blade vs 1U twin Twin system • Nodes fixed into enclosure • Must take both nodes down even if servicing only 1 node • Single shared power supply Our Compute Blade • Individual removable nodes • Nodes can run outside of housing for testing and serviceability • Dedicated 80%+ efficient power supply • Mix and match CPU architectures 6
  7. 7. blade product highlights • High density without sacrificing performance • High reliability - independent power supply and removable blade modules • Easy serviceability - each module is removable and useable without blade housing • Tool-less design for easy replacement of failed components • Multiple system architectures - available with both AMD Opteron and Intel Xeon 7
  8. 8. compute blade - front 1 Power LED 4 Slide out ID label area 2 Power Switch 5 Quick release handles 3 HDD LED 8
  9. 9. compute blade - inside blade modules independently slide out of the housing 1 Power supply 4 System memory 2 Drive bay (1x 3.5” or 2x 2.5”) 5 Processors 3 Cooling Fans 6 Low-profile expansion card 9
  10. 10. compute blade - features • Easy swap tool-less fan housing • Fans and hard drives shock mounted to prevent vibration and failure • 80% efficient power supply per blade • Thumbscrew installation for easy replacement 10
  11. 11. compute blade - density Standard 1U, dual CPU servers: Compute blade servers: Max: 42 servers per rack 336 cores Max: 84 servers per rack 672 cores 11
