"API, (Alpha Processor, Inc.), a leading architect of
high-performance solutions for high-bandwidth and compute-intensive
applications, today announced the UP1100, the latest addition to
its Ultimate Performance Series motherboards. The UP1100 offers
Alpha Linux developers a complete, cost-efficient, entry-level
Alpha board for Beowulf clusters, Web servers, development systems
and rendering solutions."
"API's high I/O and memory bandwidth technology, combined with
the UP1100's new features and the open source Linux software,
enables system integrators to build high-performance, scalable and
reliable systems. The low profile UP1100 features the Alpha 21264
processor on the UP1100 motherboard, allowing the overall cost of
systems to be reduced. This provides research institutions,
computer graphics companies and enterprises a cost-effective system
for powering compute-heavy applications."
""The API UP1100 is an extension of our successful Ultimate
Performance Series motherboard product line, giving developers the
flexibility and scalability of API's technology at an attractive
price point for the Linux platform," said Miles Chesney, vice
president of Business Development at API. "More institutions and
companies now will be able to take advantage of the high I/O and
memory bandwidth needed for compute-intensive applications. The
UP1100 is an ideal solution for existing customers currently using
SX and LX motherboards."
