The Angstrom Titan64 is the world's first 64-bit dual processor 1U development server based on the upcoming AMD Opteron processor. Titan64 offers 64-bit processing combined with a 16GB addressable memory space to satisfy the most computational intensive applications. With the performance of more expensive proprietary UNIX servers, the Titan64 is the leading edge in a new wave of cost-effective shared-memory cache-coherent systems. Titan64 delivers superior system management and power management tools for ease of deploying and and monitoring large cluster installations.
The Angstrom Titan64 is the only 64-bit high performance server that is fully backwards compatible with 32-bit Linux and Microsoft® OS applications. With migration made easy, Titan64 provides a roadmap that incorporates legacy software and enables thoughtful and planned migration to the next generation of PC technology.
Important features of the Angstrom Titan64 server include
Ability to run both 32- and 64-bit Linux and Microsoft® OSes to fit your computing needs
Improved performance on your legacy x86 applications for investment protection
Remote system management
