Fifth-Generation Altix ICE
Altix ICE is a highly flexible, tightly integrated blade architecture based on the latest Intel Xeon (codenamed “Sandy Bridge EP”) processor series. In its fifth generation, Altix ICE features support for FDR InfiniBand. The system is designed to scale to 2,304 cores in a single rack. Features include a “building-block” blade enclosure design that offers an increase over the standard 16 to 18 blade slots and 36 compute nodes per enclosure; separable, upgradeable and independently scalable power shelves;
choice of air cooling, bolt-on water cooling at the rack level, or optional liquid cooling at the compute node level; industry standard 19-inch width SGI D-Rack and a custom rack design for high density closed loop deployment, enabling multiple data center environment support.
