IBM Power 575 supercomputing node

The IBM Power 575 supercomputing node server has been withdrawn from the market, effective July 30, 2010. The learn more links provide information on the 575.

Highlights

The IBM Power™ 575 supercomputing node is designed for organizations that require a highly scalable system with extreme parallel processing performance and dense, modular packaging. Use it in clustered configurations of as few as 32 processor cores or in world-class supercomputer configurations of thousands of processors. Combined with specialized software from IBM, this system is designed to perform and represents the latest Power technology available.

Ideal workloads for this system include high performance computing (HPC) applications such as weather and climate modeling, computational chemistry, physics, computer-aided engineering, computational fluid dynamics and petroleum exploration that require highly intense computations where the workload is aligned with parallel processing methodologies. IBM has long been a leader in these application areas and, with this system, enables you to innovate and mold the future.

Densely packing up to 448 POWER6™ processor cores per frame, each one running at 4.7 GHz with innovative cooling features, the 32-core Power 575 supercomputing node is designed for speed and tuned for performance. Available in increments of 2U building blocks, hundreds of these nodes can be clustered together to tackle the world's greatest problems. Supported by up to 3.5 TB of memory per frame and super fast interconnects, the Power 575 is estimated to achieve over five times the GFLOPS per frame as its predecessor with POWER5+™ technology1. The radical new approach to HPC represented by the Power 575 system marks another step in the evolution of modular clusters designed to solve the world's greatest problems. Starting with the lightning fast 4.7 GHz processor, adding the ultra dense packaging of 32 cores in a 2U node and injected with a chilled coolant to enable peak performance, this system is a supersonic race car on the IT highway.
