eRacks releases affordable alternative to ‘heavyweight’ HPC systems


HAYWARD, CA – 10-17-2018 ( — eRacks vows to stay in pole position in computer development with release of  new entry-level HPC system. The eRacks/INTELLINATOR22 provides an affordable alternative to higher-performance computer systems without loss of performance.

California IT pack leader eRacks Open Systems is proud to announce the release of its newest entry-level High-Performance Computing (HPC) system, the eRacks/INTELLINATOR22. The CPU has 22 cores (and 44 threads).

The system is designed to be the most affordable option on the market in terms of parallel-processing power and memory, keeping eRacks at the forefront of computer-technology exploration in the USA.

Thanks to a FCLGA2011-3 socket-based motherboard, the INTELLINATOR22 supports the latest Intel processor technology and can handle multiple data streams as swiftly and efficiently as higher-end products.

“We now offer a breakthrough entry-level HPC system with the same performance characteristics as our higher-end INTELLINATOR line, but at an accessible value-price point.” said Joseph Wolff, Chief Technology Officer and Founder of eRacks Systems.


eRacks Systems gives customers the luxury to customize their INTELLINATOR22 on purchase, with the option to upgrade further down the road.

Customers can select the 1U, 2U or 3U chassis size depending on their needs. At 3U, the system supports up to 1TB of memory, and 224TB of RAW storage space.


The eRacks/INTELLINATOR22 comes pre-configured with any version of Open Source software the customer requires. Ceph, ZFS, FreeNAS, Linux, Open BSD or Ubuntu are among the options. 

With optimized space-performance ratio, the INTELLINATOR22 is the big-data solution for small-to-medium enterprises that require daily computationally intensive tasks. 

The system fits right at home in media and entertainment, climate modeling, oil and gas industry modeling, electronic design automation, Scientific Computing, Parallel Processing, Geospatial data processing, Genetic Analysis, Biosciences and Biocomputing.

Key features of the eRacks/INTELLINATOR22:

  • Entry-level HPC system designed to fulfill the needs of small-to-medium enterprises
