"Origin2000 : The Revolution in High-End Server Scalability."
Introducing Origin servers - the first family of technical and enterprise
servers to deliver affordable building block expansion from a single processor
entry configuration to maximum configuration without chassis swaps.
Origin servers are based on the breakthrough S2MP architecture and combine
the ease-of-use of symmetric multiprocessor systems, expandability of
massively parallel systems and inherent availability of cluster solutions
into a single solution. The result is the world's most powerful and flexible
product family, capable of handling the largest super-computing challenges
and data ware-houses.
Origin's "pay-as-you-go" expansion in all dimensions takes the guesswork
out of planning and delivers a solution that can't be outgrown - essential
with today's virtually unpredictable explosion in conventional and digital
S2MP's powerful I/O capabilities make Origin ideal for managing and
analyzing large quantities of high performance on-line data and servicing
an unprecedented number of high-speed network connections.
