32-core Intel® Xeon® cluster system for $23,500

That's right, get a fully-integrated SGI® cluster with industry-standard Intel Xeon x86 architecture for under $25,000.

This SGI Altix® XE1300 includes:

  • 32-core processing power with 2.5GHz Quad-core Intel Xeon processors
  • 1GB main memory per core
  • GigE Interconnect
  • SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server)
  • 3-year hardware/1-year software warranty
  • 1TB of storage

What’s the Catch? There is no catch!

This solution includes it all, including the 8-core head node, 20U short rack, PDU, 24-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch and cables, DVD-ROM, monitor, keyboard and mouse, and integrated storage. It’s a complete, factory-integrated Linux cluster solution with cluster management software in addition to job scheduling and workload management software, pre-installed.


Benefits of SGI Clusters

  • Preconfigured integrated clusters
  • Ready for immediate deployment
  • Minimizes set-up, administrative issues
  • Intel Cluster Ready certification
  • Runs ICR certified applications
  • Expand or scale as requirements grow

Does it scale?

Silicon Graphics’ unique cluster technology allows you to scale this inexpensive system to 64- and 128-core, upgrade to 3.0GHz Xeon processors, support up to 2GB/core (memory can scale separately), and utilize InfiniBand interconnect for HPC. These systems also support Microsoft Windows and RedHat Linux as well.
