Powerful, Scalable Servers
for High Performance Computing
As technical and business computing needs converge, Sun's Enterprise
10000 (Starfire) Server provides the right technologies to a new class of
It's a new age of supercomputing, and Sun is
leading the way with a powerful family of high-performance computing solutions
on the industry's broadest line of binary-compatible and the most scalable
symmetric multiprocessing systems available anywhere.
Sun Microsystems' strategy for High Performance
Computing (HPC) is to provide superior solutions to a market that demands
both performance and innovative technology. Sun is one of the few vendors
in the industry that can address these complexities with highly reliable,
integrated and innovative software tools, programming languages and hardware.
We offer highly robust solutions that will allow you to implement seamless
and balanced production environments while maintaining leading performance
with the lowest total cost of ownership.
Sun's systems strategy is to architect fat SMPs
and clusters of fat SMPs. The SMP architecture, extending from workstations
to high-end servers, is the most widely used model for developing and running
parallel applications. It is a proven, easy to deploy architecture that ensures
that the thousands of applications developed and optimized for these systems
will provide the optimum performance available without modification. This
model also provides the largest selection of binary-compatible, technical
applications from key software vendors.
Our HPC solutions include high performance computing
software tools that perform workload and resource management, and support
the development and execution of high-performance, parallel applications.
Sun HPC ClusterTools Software
brings supercomputing-class power with easy-to-manage, commercially available
Sun systems, all of which run standard Solaris Operating Environment and maintain
binary compatibility across the entire Sun product line, from single and dual
CPU systems to 64-CPU SMP systems as well as both single system environments
and clusters of SMP systems.
