C10K - CPU based Clusters

NOVATTE C10K CPU Cluster Appliance is APAC best preconfigured HPC system which brings plug-and-play simplicity for small to large deployments. Using unified NOVATTE architecture, Admin-friendly CPU Cluster can be easily scaled from small research-lab cluster to large-scale several hundreds TFlops Supercomputer without any degrade in performance.

Intel Cluster Ready
All NOVATTE CPU Cluster Appliances are officially certified by Intel for Intel Cluster Ready program. Be confident your cluster will work as it should, right away, without worrying if components will work together or not.


High Performance and Scalability
Being agile and first to market, NOVATTE uses the latest possible technologies to accelerate its HPC Clusters and bring performance to the maximum. Directly connecting computing and management nodes with storage through non-blocking 56Gbps FDR InfiniBand network, NOVATTE unifies system architecture to decrease protocol bottlenecks and allow NOVATTE HPC Cluster almost linear performance scalability of up to several PFLOPS. Unification of NOVATTE architecture makes it easy to convert default NFS storage file system to Lustre Parallel File System for maximum performance, scale and failover.


Great Value, Low TCO
Due to the shorter “Technology Vendor – NOVATTE – End User” value chain and thus lower overheads and costs, NOVATTE CPU Cluster Appliance outcompetes its closest competitors in price/performance to a great extent. Excellent investment protection, increased CPU utilization rates, high density and simplified cluster management delivers an attractive total cost of ownership while fully addressing the big data requirements of even the most compute-intensive technical applications.


Exclusive benefits:

    - Turnkey pre-installed complete solution - switch it on and start working

    - High scalability and flexibility through unified system architecture

    - Intel Cluster Ready certified

    - Easy to use Admin-friendly intuitive cluster management system

    - Most competitive Price per GFlop in APAC

    - Highly competent instant support from the most experienced HPC engineers and practitioners in Asia
