X-ES custom-designs 46-board blade server for Cray custom supercomputer with 46 Intel Core i7 processors

MIDDLETON, Wis., 5 July 2011. Supercomputer manufacturer Cray Inc. in Seattle needed a prototype data center blade computer for a supercomputing architecture designed to make dramatic reductions in the total cost of ownership for data centers by reducing facility, power, and hardware costs. They found their solution from Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis.

MIDDLETON, Wis., 5 July 2011.Supercomputer manufacturer Cray Inc. in Seattle needed a prototype data center blade computer for a supercomputing architecture designed to make dramatic reductions in the total cost of ownership for data centers by reducing facility, power, and hardware costs. They found their solution from Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis.

X-ES engineers delivered a prototype blade server to Cray that has 46 single-board computers based on the Intel Core i7 microprocessor. Engineers from the Cray Custom Engineering group chose the company not only for X-ES's ability to build a custom embedded computing architecture, but also "to complete our development on time and achieve customer acceptance,” says Dave Kiefer, Cray's vice president of business development.

Cray engineers designed high-performance computing infrastructure with efficient power delivery, high-density packaging, and high-velocity air cooling technologies, which will go with the X-ES custom multi-board computer.
