IBM, Intel and Cisco Open High-Performance Computing Center

IBM, Intel and Cisco opened a High-Performance Computing (HPC) Center in Montpellier, France, offering mutual customers a comprehensive test-bed to simplify the set-up and operation of their high performance infrastructure. The center aims to combine the world's fastest cluster computers from IBM with the high-performance InfiniBand and Ethernet networking technology from Cisco and Intel's most advanced multi-core processors. The center will be equipped with a mix of 45nm and 65nm based Quad-Core Intel Xeon microprocessors on 32 IBM BladeCenter servers, interconnected by Cisco Infiniband and Ethernet switches. The companies plan to expand the facility as new technology becomes available to keep customers on the leading edge of cluster computing.
