Promicro Systems has entered into a two-year contract with Intel Corp., a Fortune 100 provider of computer and networking equipment. Promicro has deployed one of the first computing clusters ever to integrate Intel Corp's E7500 chipset with the high-speed Wulfkit interconnect from Dolphin Interconnect. Comprised of 20 dual-processor 1U Linux servers, the cluster solution represents a significant achievement in performance, reliability and cost for parallel processing applications. Over the next few years, Promicro will continue to build and deploy high performance computing systems for the OEM's research and development activities.

Dolphin's technology is already utilized in three of the world's fastest supercomputers. The WulfKit interconnect is a combination of Dolphin's PCI SCI Adapter Card and a powerful message passing interface (MPI) developed by Norway-based Scali. Promicro leveraged Wulfkit to build a high-speed, low latency cluster solution that provides performance levels comparable to that of mainframe supercomputers. Wulfkit also eliminates the need for expensive centralized switches, providing improved reliability and operations at a significantly lower cost. Promicro paired the interconnect with Intel's E7500 chipset to achieve optimal system bus, memory and I/O bandwidth for performance and productivity. The chipset's modular design is optimized to support dual processor server platforms, providing cost-effective scalability.

Promicro Systems provides high performance computing solutions for a wide range of markets, including enterprise, entertainment, life sciences, education and government.
