PRLog - Jun. 1, 2010 - AMARO, Italy -- Hamburg (Germany), May 31, 2010 – Aurora is the smart HPC architecture for the most demanding needs: thanks to its highly integrated, minimalistic and streamlined design it allows exceptional Flops per Watt ratio, outstanding TCO savings and one of the best Flops per square meter density.
“Aurora marks a new approach to HPC”, said Giampietro Tecchiolli, Eurotech Group VP and CTO, “An approach that fits the quest for sustainable performance. Clearly, performance has always been a priority, but TCO, scalability and reliability are crucial. We have created Aurora to deliver much more than top-class performance: with Aurora we offer an HPC system that is sustainable at any size”.
With Aurora Au-5600, Eurotech updates its groundbreaking architecture with the latest 6-core Intel® CPU, the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series .By using the new processor, Aurora Au-5600 allows packing an unprecedented number of cores: one single Aurora rack contains up to 3.072 cores and delivers up to 41TFlops.
This massive computational capacity is compatible with the existing X86 software applications and development tools; in fact, Aurora Au-5600 is one of the first Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series based systems that is Intel® Cluster Ready certified.
“Aurora brings an exceptional value to the HPC customers”, said Dr. Herbert Cornelius, Intel Director Advanced Computing Center EMEA, “by utilizing the Intel® Cluster Ready architecture it allows that creating, installing and managing even the most sophisticated software setup is greatly simplified and delivering increased productivity and interoperability of HPC cluster solutions”.
Aurora features a number of high end technologies, such as 100Gb/s bandwidth per node, with a 60Gb/s 3D torus and a 40Gb/s Infiniband interface; multilevel synchronization networks for highly efficient scalability, and an on board, programmable  accelerator can be used to implement highly optimized algorithms
With its exclusive liquid cooling system, Aurora has one of the best Power Usage Efficiency values and is one of the most reliable HPC platforms: by using liquid cooling it’s possible to control the temperature of each component with a precision and efficiency that air cooling simply cannot match; moreover, the total absence of fans and moving parts completely eliminates one of the most significant sources of downtime.
