Let's take a look at the options available to you when you configure your Cray CX1 system.
First off, form factor.
You can get your Cray CX1 on either a rackmount rail kit (standard) or deskside rolling tray (extra - add $520). You can also add a set of two single phase hot swap power modules for $2,078.
Next up, blades (or nodes).
You can choose from a wide range of nodes, and customize each to suit:
- Compute Node (Single Socket) CN4800 - Starting Price: $2,774.00
- Compute Node (Dual Socket) CN5400 - Starting Price: $5,886.00
- Storage Node (4 Hard Drive) CS5404 - Starting Price: $7,357.00
- Storage Node (8 Hard Drive) CS5408 - Starting Price: $8,652.00
- Visualization Node CV5401 - Starting Price: $8,106.00
With all the hard decisions made, you can choose from a whole list of options - power cords, whether you want to save $240 and not get the Logitech MX5500 cordless keyboard and mouse set (a bit of kit that oddly enough has a recommended selling price of only $170 ...), what monitor you want, what OS, whether you want a road case or not, warranties and so on.
Here's a system I threw together quickly ...
The bottom line? A mere $99,563 ...
