Intalio|Cloud Appliance Model C1 Mark I

Thursday, May 28th 2009 | Ismael Ghalimi

As many of my readers know, I love computers. At any given point in time I use a couple of desktops and three or four laptops. But I have a real fascination for larger systems, which is why I studied parallel computing in graduate school. Today, I fulfilled one my dreams: building a really large machine. We just published some more details about the Intalio|Cloud Appliance Model C1 Mark I, including a full list of components, and detailed specifications. This is a superlative computer in every possible way, with the most cutting edge hardware and software money can buy. Serial Number 00000001 is standing proud in our new data-center (the same as Facebook’s), waiting for us to put some serious load onto it (our on-demand offering is currently hosted on Amazon EC2).

Here is what the Mark I gives you:

  • Standard 19” Rack
  • 16 Compute Blades
  • 16 Storage Blades
  • 32 Quad Core Intel Xeon X5570 2.93GHz CPUs
  • 128 CPU Cores
  • 2.3TB 1333MHz PC3-10600 DDR3 Memory
  • 24.5TB Solid Stage Drive Database Storage
  • 560TB Hard Disk Drive File Storage
  • InfiniBand QDR Networking Fabric
  • Gigabit Ethernet Networking Connectivity
  • Directly Attached SAS Storage Connectivity
  • 1 Management Server
  • 1 Screen, Keyboard, and Touchpad

We’re now working on the Mark II model, which will break the Petabyte barrier.
