The Altus 600 server is specifically designed for the needs of high performance computing. Equipped with up to two AMD Opteron 2000-series processors and up to 64 GB of memory, it eliminates features not typically needed by HPC users running complex simulations, reducing the cost of clustering without sacrificing performance or efficiency. It features the highest memory capacity available in a 1U form factor, onboard Gigabit Ethernet, SATA hard drives and a PCI Express x16 expansion slot for high-speed, low-latency cluster interconnects. Scaling to support memory- and bandwidth-hungry applications, it maximizes compute power per rack and minimizes the impact on AC and utility bills. In addition, integrated IPMI 2.0 management enables remote health monitoring and power control to reduce administrative workload.
