In this podcast, I interview Tau Leng, GM of Supermicro. Of note is Supermicro's announcement of a blade enclosure that has up to 2,880 x86 cores in a single 42U rack.
"When powered by new 12-core AMD Opteron 6100 Series (Socket G34) processors, the TwinBlade enables up to 2,880 processing cores, 240 SATA drives and 15TB of DDR3 memory per 42U rack. Featuring dual 40Gb/s InfiniBand, FCoE or 10GbE switches and dual 1/10GbE switches in one 7U enclosure, TwinBlade provides the highest performing I/O throughput and scalability in the industry and is a superb solution for high-performance computing (HPC), datacenter, enterprise and cloud computing deployments. With successful installations at CERN, PRACE, and other Fortune 100 organizations, the SuperBlade® has already become the preferred solution for a wide range of mission-critical applications."
