Amaro, Udine (Italy) � September 9, 2004 � The Eurotech Group today announced that its high performance computing (HPC) division, Exadron, is now ranked no. 209 on the TOP500 global supercomputer list for its Myrinet-type cluster computer �Avogadro� built on behalf of the Italian research organization CILEA (www.cilea.it). The 23rd semi-annual TOP500 rankings (www.top500.org) were recently published at the International Supercomputer Conference (ISC) 2004 in Heidelberg, Germany.

�We are very proud of the CILEA cluster, which delivers an amazing 1.08 Tflop/s of parallel processing performance to the European scientific and GRID community,� said Giampietro Tecchiolli, head of the Exadron Division. �The system is built using a total of 256 Pentium 4 Xeon 3.06Ghz processors clustered together using independent and specialized Myrinet and Gigabit networks. A total of 6.4 Terabytes of external and redundant storage complete the configuration to deliver an extraordinary price versus performance ratio.�

�Exadron is more than a hardware manufacturer;� Tecchiolli continues. �We provide solutions tailored to specific customer needs, complete with software and services. While many companies offer turn-key solutions, Exadron goes one step further - we employ researchers and collaborate with scientists in order to design true, plug-and-play solutions that anticipate the real needs of the HPC community.�
