Features

Power efficiency

  • Effective cooling: direct liquid cooling on level of motherboards provides much more efficient heat removal in comparison to air cooling.
  • Low price of possession: up to 60% of economy of electric power.

Compatibility

  • Full compatibility with architecture x86.
  • Optimized MPI-2 libraries.

Reliability

  • Total lack of moving parts in processor units (absence of noise and vibration).
  • Three-level system of monitoring and control.

Fail-safe feature

  • Backup of all subsystems.
  • Mode of «hot» change of equipment.
