National Tsinghua University of China has selected InfiniCon Systems Inc. to supply a 10Gbps switch fabric for a 128-node, InfiniBand-based cluster.

Tsinghua University will deploy the high-performance computing (HPC) cluster to support a myriad of research projects conducted in both basic and applied sciences. Shanghai Hong Ri International - an InfiniCon ASAP program channel partner in China - fostered the relationship between InfiniCon and Tsinghua University.

InfiniCon's InfinIO 3000 switch series is expected to provide a 10Gbps, full bisectional bandwidth fabric for the 128-node cluster, comprised of Hewlett-Packard's Integrity rx2600 servers with Intel Itanium 2 dual processors. The HPC configuration is expected to yield peak computing performance of more than one trillion floating point calculations per second (TeraFlops).
