At SC16, ExaScaler and PEZY Computing Unveil the First Super Computer with a Performance Density of 1.5 PetaFLOPS/m3

ZettaScaler-1.8 Super Computer is cooled by ExaScaler technology and powered by Vicor modules

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2016) - At SC16, ExaScaler and PEZY Computing today unveiled ZettaScaler-1.8, the first Super Computer with a Performance Density of 1.5 PetaFLOPS/m3 (Rpeak). The ZettaScaler-1.8 is an advanced prototype of the ZettaScaler-2.0 due to be released in 2017 with a performance density three times higher than the ZettaScaler-1.8. The ZettaScaler-1.8 Super Computer is cooled by ExaScaler immersion liquid cooling technology and powered by Vicor (NASDAQ: VICR) 380V to 48V and 48V to 1V modules.

At SC16, Vicor announced its supporting role in ExaScaler and PEZY Computing's development of revolutionary supercomputing platforms. Powered from 380V DC, ExaScaler's ZettaScaler-1.8 utilizes Vicor converters to provide 48V to high density, high efficiency direct-to-PoL current multipliers feeding PEZY Computing's low voltage, high current processors.

"ExaScaler and PEZY Computing have achieved substantial improvements in efficiency and density with 380V to 48V converters and 48V direct-to-PoL VTM current multipliers from Vicor," said Motoaki Saito, Founder/CEO of ExaScaler and PEZY Computing.

"A Vicor modular power system supports the unprecedented performance of ExaScaler and PEZY Computing's new super-computing platforms," said Patrizio Vinciarelli, Founder/CEO of Vicor.

Come see us at SC16 at Booth 843 where ExaScaler / PEZY Computing will be demonstrating its technology.
