"Industry's First Pizza Box-Sized, Dual-Processor Alpha Server Packs 140 GFLOPS of Compute Power in a Standard Rack, Delivering the Power of a World-Class Supercomputer"

"API NetWorks, Inc., a leading developer of high-performance, high-density technologies, today introduced the CS20, the world's most powerful server in a 1U package and the company's most advanced platform for computer clustering. The CS20 is the industry's first rack-optimized, 1U, dual-processor Alpha server and gives the high-performance computing (HPC) and Internet community the ability to scale clusters into state-of-the-art supercomputer facilities, providing the most economic solution with the minimum computer room footprint."

"API NetWorks creates the building blocks for the world's most powerful computing clusters, and our CS20 revolutionizes the cluster computing world," said Gerry Talbot, president and CTO of API NetWorks. "Prior to its development, no one would have thought it possible to pack the computing power of a large supercomputer in such a dense package. Every aspect of the CS20 has been designed with the requirements of high-performance computing users in mind."

"The CS20 will be used to build advanced Web servers and render farms and as a cost-effective platform in creating clustered equivalents of supercomputers for large scale facilities, grand challenge problems and complex research."
