The Breakthrough nuclear project will receive servers on pre-series Elbrus-16C chips / ServerNews

DPC of the Russian project “Breakthrough”, in the implementation of which more than 30 organizations of the state corporation Rosatom participate, will acquire servers on domestic processors “Elbrus-16C”. They have not yet entered mass production.

About Elbrus-16C chips can be found in our material. They contain 16 computing cores with the Elbrus architecture sixth generation. The clock frequency reaches 2.0 GHz. It is possible to work with DDR4-3200 RAM with ECC. Implemented hardware support for secure computing and virtualization.

As reported on the public procurement portal, the customer of the new servers is Joint Stock Company “Breakthrough”. We are talking about the supply of specialized import-independent equipment to ensure the modernization of the data center PN Proryv. The tender was announced on October 27, 2022, and the acceptance of applications ended on November 7. The only participant and winner of the competition was the Elbrus-2000 Limited Liability Company. The contract amount was 15,720,207 rubles. The contract provides for the supply of servers 2U-2E16-SC developed by MCST, as well as licenses for the operating system “Alt Server 10” (“Basalt SPO”).

It is known that the 2U-2E16-SC model is a two-processor server designed for use in hyperconverged infrastructures. It is allowed to work with computing accelerators, as well as with data storage facilities using high-speed I / O controllers. Serial production of Elbrus-16C chips planned to start this year, but due to the current geopolitical situation, it has not yet been possible to do so. Probably, the ordered servers are based on pre-series samples of the processor.

As for the Proryv project, it provides for the creation of a new technological platform for the nuclear industry based on a closed nuclear fuel cycle using fast neutron reactors. The technology will make it possible to eliminate severe accidents at nuclear power plants, generate electricity without the accumulation of irradiated nuclear fuel, and repeatedly reuse spent nuclear fuel.
