TeamHPC Unleashes Myricom's Myri-10G

Offering expands company's line of award winning Intel and AMD multiprocessor server solutions Once again, TeamHPC demonstrates its unique ability to be ahead of Tier One competitors.

Eudora, KS, June 21, 2005 TeamHPC, a division of M&A Technology, Inc. and a leading global provider of cluster computing, is now integrating solutions that combine the techniques of high-performance computing (HPC) with 10-Gigabit Ethernet for industry-best cost-performance. Available for customer delivery in September, the new Myri-10G switches and Network Interface Cards (NICs) bring the advantages of Myricom's industry-leading HPC technology, Myrinet, to Ethernet at compelling price points. Myri-10G makes the most challenging applications affordable for mainstream enterprises while allowing users of traditional HPC parallel applications to leverage the ubiquity of Ethernet.

TeamHPC will offer the new interconnect on its ProServe line of server solutions to further strengthen the company's wide array of computational products. This new technology is expected to be the industry front runner and will further extend TeamHPC's firm grasp into the HPC space. Since their introduction a decade ago, Myrinet-based NICs and switches have consistently outperformed contemporary Ethernet solutions in cluster applications, with advantages including high data rates, high availability, low latency, and low cost. The new Myri-10G solutions extend Myrinet's architectural and performance advantages to 10-Gigabit speeds while also providing full interoperability with standard 10-Gigabit Ethernet.

"Without a doubt, we expect to see big increases in the demand for high speed interconnects from our low-latency dependent customer base," said Bret Stouder, Vice President of TeamHPC. "Myricom's new Myri-10G products will be the low-latency interconnect of choice for those customers who value a real 10 + 10 Gb solution that is scalable and production-ready. However, these products will also allow us to offer a cost-effective, offload-capable, 10Gb Ethernet solution for data center, storage, database, and compute-farm applications."

Ethernet Extended: Switching on New Applications

The new Myri-10G switches provide from 16 to 128 ports in single enclosures with list prices as low as $400 per port. Multiple switches can be interconnected to service tens of thousands of host computers. Myri-10G NICs are bilingual, capable of working with standard 10-Gigabit Ethernet enterprise switches as well as with economical, highly scalable, 10G Myrinet switches. Additionally, protocol-conversion devices will connect 10G Myrinet switch fabrics to 10-Gigabit Ethernet IP networks and storage.

Pricing & Availability

Myri-10G Network Interface Cards with 10GBase-CX4 ports will list for $795, a savings of more than 50% versus competing enterprise solutions. Other 10-Gigabit physical layers, including fiber, will also be available. The family of Myri-10G switches will include a standalone 1U 16-port switch with a list price of $6,400 and network in a box switches up to 128 ports. The new offerings will ship in September 2005.
