CSP Inc. (NASDAQ: CSPI) MultiComputer Division, a leading supplier of
rugged embedded computer clusters, today announced a technology upgrade
for its FastCluster product line. Radar, sonar, and surveillance signal
processing applications will benefit from the superior processing
density and high bandwidth provided by the new FastCluster Mobile
Scalable Computing Platforms with Intel® Xeon MultiCore processors and
InfiniBand QDR technology.
All FastCluster platforms adhere to industry standard form factors,
employ scalable switch fabrics, and offer an open software stack. This
approach eliminates dependencies between the hardware components and
fabric, allowing customers to easily migrate between platforms or insert
new technology without having to rewrite their application.
The FastCluster 3000 SERIES OpenVPX? Platforms are
specifically designed for deployment in harsh environments where
performance and density are critical. CSPI's rugged FastCluster 3000
SERIES OpenVPX?-compliant platforms integrate the most advanced high
performance computing components including QDR Infiniband Host Channel
Adapters, Intel® MultiCore dual socket processors, and Intel® QPI
architecture. The platforms provide support for Red Hat Linux, WindRiver
VxWorks SMP software stack, and MPI 2.0 Message Passing Interface.
?The FastCluster Scalable Computing platforms, with Intel® processors
and InfiniBand, provide a solution for today with a clear upgrade path
for addressing the future challenges of applications for military
airborne, shipboard and UAV platforms? says Bernard Pelon, CSPI Director
of Product Research.
Technology refresh is possible by simply inserting new OpenVPX?
processor, carrier, or fabric blades. From benign to harsh environments,
FastCluster platforms provide the flexibility and upgradability required
for long-term use in aerospace and defense environments.
The 3000 SERIES OpenVPX? systems are designed to support air-cooled and
spray-cool thermal management techniques and will be available for
delivery Q1 2011.
