Pogo Linux Announces First Linux Optimized Eight-Processor AMD
PITTSBURGH, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Pogo Linux announced today at the
SC2004 conference, the PerformanceWare 5864, an eight processor AMD
Opteron-based server. This system is the first commercially available
Linux-optimized server to use eight AMD Opteron 800-series processors
providing unmatched performance. The computing power of the
PerformanceWare 5864 meets the ever growing demands of enterprise
databases and high performance computing applications. The company will
be showcasing the product at SC2004 this week in Pittsburgh, PA with
customer shipments expected to begin in December 2004.
The PerformanceWare 5864 employs a revolutionary design utilizing the
AMD64 Direct Connect architecture to its full potential. These systems
will provide unparalleled bandwidth access for memory intensive
applications, easy modularity through HTX(TM) Connectors, and up to 256
GigaBytes of DDR memory. This server satisfies thirsty databases and
high performance applications by overcoming bottlenecks in memory
bandwidth and processing power. Pogo Linux has also engineered the
hardware configuration to be compatible with SUSE Enterprise Server 9
and Red Hat Enterprise 3. Backed by Pogo Linux's support expertise, the
PerformanceWare 5864 is well suited to be deployed with high performance
applications across any enterprise.
"The PerformanceWare 5864 really showcases the AMD Direct Connect
Architecture by joining eight processors in one system without the
limitations of front side bus speed," said Erik Logan, Pogo Linux chief
technology officer. "This system is ideal for enterprises that need
power to drive their database, application servers or any other
processor intensive applications."
Pogo Linux will be demonstrating at SC2004 its ComputeColony turnkey
cluster system, the StorageWare S548 -- a 5U 48 drive storage system,
and the StorageWare DA 360 -- a direct attached system that provides
scalability and exceptional reliability. These products can be seen at
the Pogo Linux booth #2330.
The company will also be showing its StorageWare S316 -- a storage
system that received an "Excellent" rating from InfoWorld Magazine at
the AMCC booth #2323 and this year's Linux Journal Magazine's "Ultimate
Linux Box" at the Argonne National Labs booth #339.
