Among other things, it became a cluster Kraftway, created for the department of computer sciences Moscow Institute of Electronic Technology (MIET). Today about a new product the company has more detailed information.
Supercomputer is a 25-node cluster type CoPC, which hosts the station Kraftway Credo (2 Quad processor Intel Xeon 5335 each). A cluster running the new operating system Microsoft Windows HPC Server RC 1 and ensures peak performance at the 1600 GFlops. He won the 43rd of the list TOP50, showing the result of 871. 5 GFlops is testing Linpack.
cluster now being actively used in the process of learning, especially, he demanded a master`s and postgraduate students in the preparation of theses. In making precision calculations on a cluster Kraftway, students acquire practical skills and thus increase their chances of obtaining decent work after high school.
