Description

The XENON® Nitro T7 Workstation is optimised for High Performance Computing environments that require intensive processing power for visualisation, data-modelling, media production and design.

The workstation can be rack mounted for hosting within the controlled, secure environment of a data centre or deployed in the laboratory, office or studio environment with its standard pedestal mount chassis. If security or data protection are critical then the optional rack-mount kit allows installation in a standard 19” environment.

Key features include:

  • Up to 5 GPU processors enables your organisation to harness the power of supercomputing in your research, production or business environment
  • 12 Teraflops of processing power for the most intensive business or scientific task
  •  Up to 1TB of memory for complex in-memory computation, data analysis and modelling
  •  Internal storage for 8 high performance hot-swap disk drives
  • Suitable for digital signage that utilises up to 16 Ultra high-definition displays
  •  GPU can be selected to depending on the requirement for single or double decimal point accuracy
  • Granular management protocols including IPMI v2.0 and PMBus v1.3 to ensure uptime and consistent performance

Harness the power of Supercomputing by installing four (4) NVIDIA® Tesla GPU’s to deliver in-house HPC workloads that were previously only available to the largest organisations.
