Key Features

  • Multi-node server solutions offering industry leading processing density

  • Up to 2 dual processor nodes in a 1U configuration, 4 nodes in 2U and 8 nodes in 4U

  • Support for Intel Xeon processor E5 family and AMD®'s 16-core Opteron 6000-series processors

  • VMWare® certified solutions

  • High performance 10GbE and QDR infiniband interconnect options

Blade servers have traditionally provided the best processing density for rack cabinets but the latest Quattro 2296-T from Boston is an unusual alternative that turns this notion on its head. This rack server has no less than 96 cores in its 2U chassis which equates to an incredible 2,016 cores in an industry standard 42U rack cabinet which, we believe, is a new record. IT Pro Innovation AwardPC PRO REVIEW ON THE BOSTON QUATTRO 5500GP

Our multi-award winning range of Quattro compute nodes provide unrivalled processing performance and power consumption figures that are second to none. By providing a unique combination of 2 or 4 HPC nodes supplied in a single enclosure sharing the same chassis and power supplies, nothing competes in terms of processing density, performance and price. The latest 6-core and 12-core processors from Intel and AMD being fully supported, with numerous connectivity options including integrated 40Gb/s QDR Infiniband and 20Gb/s DDR Infiniband.

The Quattro range has proved to be a massively popular product and due to its obvious space saving and impressive power efficiency, it is no wonder the solution is being utilised within many market sectors. An example of such a customer is CERN who have deployed just under 5,000 processor cores using Intel Xeon-based Quattro servers.
