Astra - World's Fastest Arm-Based Supercomputer
Astra is the first large-scale prototype system to be deployed under the Sandia Vanguard program. The system is composed of 2,592 compute nodes, each of which contains two sockets that are populated with 28-core Cavium ThunderX2 64-bit Arm-v8 processors. The theoretical peak performance of the machine is more than 2.3 petaflops. The platform will be deployed in partnership with Westwind Computing Products Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).
