TERA-4 mini cluster

Low cost and fast

TERA-4 is a mini cluster with 4 nodes connected through a high speed network: high performance with an excellent quality/price ratio.
It is compact (2U rack chassis), powerful (from 48 to 256 cores, depending on the processor) and the computing performances are supported by a 10 Gbit/s Ethernet high speed network. The key point of the architecture is the absence of a 10 Gbit/s Ethernet switch, which allows us to maintain a competitive price. The TERA-4 cluster is ready to use and equipped with all the software necessary to work effectively. They are based on advanced hardware and software technologies, and bring to users high productivity and very short learning curves.
