Intel® Scalable System Framework Configurations

Take your HPC systems and applications to the next level with high-performance, balanced systems and broad application compatibility. Choose Intel® Scalable System Framework Configurations to reduce system validation time and speed time to insight.

Fuel World-Changing Insight

Achieve the next level of HPC insight with new system design approaches for complex workloads.  From modeling and simulation to artificial intelligence,  machine learning, analytics , and visualization, Intel® Scalable Systems Framework (Intel® SSF) brings together Intel’s latest compute, fabric, memory, storage, and software technologies for the next wave of high performance computing. With the exceptional performance of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family and Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors, and the breakthrough price-performance of Intel® Omni-Path Fabric, there’s no better time to move forward.

Intel® Scalable System Framework Configurations

A system is only as strong as the foundation it’s built upon. HPC systems using recommended Intel® SSF configurations utilize a recommended combination of compute, fabric, memory/storage, and software elements in a balanced system design. Start your next level of HPC system design with Intel® Scalable System Framework Configurations.

Intel® SSF Configurations from leading system suppliers include a minimum of:

  1. Compute performed by Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family and/or Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor
  2. Message fabric using Intel® Omni-Path Fabric or Intel® Ethernet Server Adapters (1Gbit or higher)

Certified Intel® Scalable System Framework Configurations

Certified Intel® Scalable System Framework Configurations, based on either the Intel® SSF Architecture Specification  or on validated Intel® SSF Reference Designs, are high-performance, balanced systems with broad application compatibility.  With these configurations,  application portability across systems is easier and faster– and you have the capability to speed system validation and accelerate insight.
