Supermicro Showcases New GPU SuperServer at GTC 2016

SYS-1028GQ-TRToday SuperMicro rolled out its next generation GPU server architecture alongside new GPU optimized SuperServer, SuperBlade, and SuperWorkstation solutions this week at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC). Supermicro exhibits at GTC include 1U GPU SuperServers supporting up to 4x NVIDIA Tesla GPU accelerators, 2U 2x GPU TwinPro, 4U 12x GPU FatTwin, 4U 8x GPU, 4U/Tower 4+1 GPU SuperServers and 7U SuperBlade 20x GPU system solutions.

Supermicro’s new SuperServer and SuperBlade platforms optimized for next generation GPU technology offer the most flexible architecture for the future of extreme parallel computing,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “Our proprietary cooling architecture supports up to four GPUs in 1U, maximizing compute density, performance and reliability under peak thermal operating conditions. Supermicro’s innovation and revolutionary solutions deliver the greatest range of options for next generation supercomputers, enabling new breakthroughs in the latest deep learning and artificial intelligence applications.”

From HPC to Deep Learning and Big Data Analytics, denser, more powerful GPU solutions have become a necessity in order to service the next generation of GPU-accelerated applications. At GTC, Supermicro will demonstrate how these applications have progressed, and how its GPU solutions are influencing this evolution. Supermicro’s unique Green Computing architecture features redundant high-efficiency power supplies and airflow optimized cooling architecture to maximize thermal operating conditions and increase energy efficiency and reliability. With Supermicro GPU-accelerated computing solutions, engineering, scientific and research fields can scale out compute clusters that accelerate their most demanding workloads and achieve fastest time to results with maximum performance per watt, per square foot, per dollar.
