Enterprise Linux Today: Atipa Rolls Out New Line of Computational Clusters

Oct 12, 2000, 20:44 (0 Talkback[s])

"Atipa Corporation, an end-to-end provider of Open Source and Linux solutions, announced today at the Linux Atlanta Showcase the rollout of a new product line of Beowulf computational clusters, the Ascendance series. A long-time provider of cutting-edge clusters to the scientific, educational, and corporate sectors, Atipa engineers have now pre-packaged high quality hardware platforms, software, and connectivy providers into Ascendance clusters that can be delivered quickly and cost-effectively to the burgeoning high performance computing market."

"The secret is out. High-end computer users across all sectors are discovering that the traditional "supercomputer" of the proprietary world simply cannot compete in the price/performance game with commercial Linux cluster products," said Mike Jacobs, Vice President of Atipa's Hardware Group. "Oil and gas exploration, medical imaging, graphics rendering, computer science research, and other disciplines are turning to Linux clusters. These customers are looking for companies that can provide scalable, high-quality solutions for today's array of compute-hungry applications. Atipa has the organic talent to successfully meet these new expectations and enlarge our footprint in the HPC space...."

"The Ascendance series of turn-key cluster solutions comes in 4- and 8-node configurations and is available across Intel, AMD and Alpha platforms. Customers can choose Ascendance clusters with three available high-speed connectivity options, Wulfkit^Ù, Myrinet, and 100 Mb Ethernet, and with Atipa's "CHAMPS"--the user-friendly Cluster Health and Monitored Performance System that makes life easier for administrators."
