"We wanted to maintain our leadership in the HPC market in offering a complete range of scalable, high-performance servers. We have chosen Bull for the outstanding performance, openness, and scalability of its NovaScale servers, backed by its reputation in the HPC world”, said Dr Chuang, CTO of Miracle Machines.
“We are pleased to set up this partnership with Miracle Machines, a company with significant HPC skills and market reach. Our business through OEM partners is critical to NovaScale market expansion, notably within the BRIC* countries where Bull has already tied sound OEM partnerships. Success is already there with Miracle Machines who has sold their largest single cluster. The server is used to develop a warning and alert system after the Tsunami accident in the Asia Pacific in 2005” declared Philippe Miltin, Vice President Bull Products and Systems.
Announced in March 2003, the Bull NovaScale server range is based upon its FAME architecture and the Intel® Itanium® Processor Family. Using market-standard building blocks, the FAME architecture represents a technological breakthrough for high-end, mission-critical servers, delivering significant improvements in price/performance.
Bull NovaScale servers have gained IT market recognition and won large customers, both end-user IT organizations and OEMs. They are used notably as data base servers and application servers as well as in HPC (High Performance Computing) applications. NovaScale servers are the foundation of the largest scientific computer ever designed and built in Europe.
