Pinnacle Flex Compute System

It's the natural evolution from our unique Pinnacle Compute Blade to our newest server model: the Pinnacle Flex! Designed with performance, efficiency, flexibility, and upgradeability in mind, Flex gives you multiple configuration options to meet your most demanding computing needs.

With the Flex solution, you can pick the Flex nodes that best match your high performance computing requirements.  In 2U of space, we offer four slots that can be filled with four of our standard, one-slot, dual-processor nodes; two of our standard nodes along with the newest two-slot Flex node; or even two of the two-slot Flex nodes.

Features and Benefits:

  • Space Savings — 2x computing power in the same space
  • Flexibility — supports either Xeon Phi coprocessors or GPUs
  • Storage Capacity — supports both high capacity and high performance storage
  • Serviceability — Each compute blade is modular, removable and tool-less
  • High Availability — Each blade is independent, with no impact on other nodes
  • Manageability — Blade equipped with management engine: IPMI and iKVM
