Re: More detail please Mr Kaminario

Gen 6 K2 is reported to have 512GB of DDR4 and 20 Cores of Broadwell per Node. So with 8 nodes (their max configuration) they'll have 4TB and 160 cores of 8-way active processing in the cluster, since the K2 is a symmetric active-active processing engine.

K2 Gen 5 had 32 cores of Ivy bridge with 256GB of DDR3 per node, so this array has always had quite a bit of processing power--which is one reason why the K2 has always been an extremely high performance array, as anyone who has used one will know.
