AMD EPYC Clusters

Cost-effective Parallel Computing with Large Core Counts
Microway Navion™ Dense Clusters with AMD EPYC™ Processors

Logo of the AMD EPYC SoC CPU
Navion Clusters deliver supercomputing performance at a lower power, lower cost, and with better cooling than the competition. Users with compute-intensive applications including DSP, CFD and FEA, as well as high-performance database and enterprise-class applications choose Navion clusters for exceptional performance and power/space efficiency.

For large core count clusters, we provide 5120 processor cores in a standard 42U rackmount cabinet. Our Navion Twin2 servers include four dual-processor compute nodes (totaling 256 cores) in a 2U chassis. Effectively doubling rack capacity, each motherboard features two 32-core AMD EPYC 7000-series processors, up to 2 TB of DDR4 2666Mhz memory, InfiniBand and Gigabit Ethernet, robust cooling, and ample storage.
