    The bullx R422 E2 2x 2-socket rack servers, based on Intel® Xeon® processors, support Linux and Microsoft® Windows® HPC Server 2008 environments. They are ideally suited for use as compute nodes, in combination with bullx R423 E2 service nodes.

      Designed for Extreme Computing
    The bullx R422 E2 combines all features needed to deliver high-level performance for complex workloads:
  • The top performance of 2x 2 Intel® Xeon® processors (5600 series, up to 6 cores, or up to 3.06GHz)
  • Astounding and scalable bandwidth with the Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) technology – providing point-to-point high-speed links to distributed shared memory
  • High memory capacity (up to 2x 96GB DDR3 1333 MHz memory)
  • High-end connectivity, with 2x PCI-Express Gen 2 (16x) slots
  • Embedded InfiniBand DDR or QDR adapter
  • Optimal internal storage capacity with up to 2x2 SATA2 disks (up to 2x 2000GB per node)
  • Best-in-class, scalable remote management features, with IPMI2.

  •   Breakthrough computing density
    The innovative packaging of the bullx R422 E2 allows to fit 2 servers into a single 1U chassis.
    With up to 24 cores, up to 281 Gflops in 1U, the R422 E2 offers outstanding density, but with the flexibility of 1U commodity servers. It saves on chassis, power supply, cabling, and rack costs. Its outstanding density allows to minimise footprint and significantly reduce real estate or rental costs.
    To get full benefit from the density of the bullx R422 E2, Bull recommends the use of racks fitted with the Bull Cool Cabinet Door.

      Eco-friendly energy efficiency
    The bullx R422 E2 chassis features a 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Unit, allowing huge savings on energy costs. With a 92% power utilisation rate, it is far ahead of conventional PSUs (< 80%).
