Microway announces that 2nd-Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (Cascade Lake-SP) are now shipping in volume across all Microway Xeon offerings, including next-generation NumberSmasher clusters, servers and WhisperStations.
This new family of processors boosts performance for Microway custom deployments with increased CPU core counts, higher memory capacity and bandwidth, improved clock speeds and new features for HPC, AI and deep learning, the company reports.
Microway NumberSmasher Xeon CPU Clusters integrate hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of 2nd-gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor cores for turnkey performance and functionality.
Upgraded Microway NumberSmasher servers include configurations in 1-4U footprints, as well as NumberSmasher 2U Twin high-density nodes (four nodes in 2U)—all shipping in volume. 2P configurations are available with two sockets of Xeon Silver, Gold and Platinum processors and up to 6TB of memory, and four-socket configurations deliver up to 112 cores and 12TB of memory. NumberSmasher Servers with 2nd-gen Xeon Scalable Processors also support new Intel Optane Datacenter Persistent Memory and Intel Deep Learning Boost Instructions (VNNI).
Microway engineers custom Microway WhisperStationswith Xeon Silver, Gold or Platinum processors, plus large memory spaces, Intel DC series SSDs and multiple accelerators. New cost-efficient single socket configurations and specialized high-clock speed Xeon WhisperStation designs for moderately threaded CAE applications are also available.
Microway tests every cluster, server and WhisperStation thoroughly with applications shown to cause faults in the field. All components must withstand sustained 100% load for multiple days before approved for shipment. A complete Linux and/or cluster software integration is also performed.
