BULLX RACK-MOUNTED SYSTEMS


A large choice of models,
from ultra dense compute nodes
to versatile service nodes

The bullx rack-mounted series is a family of 2-socket and 4-socket servers, based on the latest generation of Intel® Xeon® or AMD® Opteron™ processors. Designed specifically for Extreme Computing, this series includes a large choice of servers, from ultra-dense compute nodes to enhanced service nodes.

Compute nodes : ultra dense servers for cost-effective capacity computing

AMD Opteron

bullx R424

The bullx R424 D3 servers are designed for high-level performance: high memory capacity, high-end connectivity, optimal internal storage capacity.

With 4 servers in 2U (i.e. up to 128 cores and 1.178 Tflops), the R424 D3 offer an outstanding density, an excellent system availability, thanks to redundancy features and ease of maintenance, as well as the versatility of commodity servers.

Service nodes: enhanced I/O and storage capabilities over 2U

AMD Opteron

bullx B500

The bullx R423 D3 service node has advanced connectivity features, extended storage options and redundancy features to guarantee efficient and reliable cluster management services.

The bullx R424 E3 and R424 F3 servers are designed for high-level performance: high memory capacity, high-end connectivity, optimal internal storage capacity.

With 4 servers in 2U (i.e. up to 96 cores and more than 1.8 Tflops), the R424 E3/F3 offer outstanding density, and excellent system availability, thanks to redundancy features and ease of maintenance, as well as the versatility of commodity servers.

The R424 F3 model adds extended storage capabilities, with the support of SAS disks and RAID functions.

Compute nodes with large memory capacity

bullx R422

bullx R428

The bullx R428 E3 is a four-socket compute node with a large shared memory, which also offers extended storage and connectivity features.

This "fat node" offers the very large memory capacity required by certain applications (up to 32 DIMMs, up to 1 To), at an extremely reasonable cost.

Enhanced nodes designed for cluster management, visualization, and storage

Intel Xeon

bullx B500
bullx R425
bullx R426

The bullx R423 E3 service node has advanced connectivity features, extended storage options and redundancy features to guarantee efficient and reliable cluster management services.

The bullx R425 E3 visualization node is equipped to support the latest graphics and accelerator cards. Available in rack and tower format.

The bullx R426 E2 offers extended storage options, as well as advanced connectivity and redundancy features, to ensure efficient and reliable service as a storage node.
