cloud computingToday Penguin Computing announced that the company’s Relion family of Linux-based servers is now available with the latest generation of Intel Xeon Scalable processors including both the processor formerly codenamed Cascade Lake-SP as well as the Walker Pass-based Cascade Lake-AP technology. This enhancement will enable Penguin Computing to improve performance for data center, HPC, and AI customers while also delivering the flexibility, density, and scalability of the Relion server design.

Timely access to the latest, most relevant technology is critical to Penguin Computing’s ability to innovate and to meet customer needs,” said Phil Pokorny, Chief Technology Officer, Penguin Computing. “When there is a step increase in capability, such as with the new 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, it opens up new design options so that we can develop solutions for what’s next on the horizon, particularly with regard to AI, through the Penguin Computing AI Practice.”

Using the new Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processor, that delivers a new class of advanced performance for HPC and AI, the Penguin Computing Relion server family offers improved security, performance upgrades, and additional optimization for memory-bound virtualization for AI, deep learning, and machine learning workloads.

For data center customers, 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor-based Relion servers can provide persistent memory at scale and open the door to new types of storage systems and architectures, thanks to support for Intel Optane DC persistent memory modules.

Our partnership with Penguin Computing has resulted in innovative designs that highlight the power and efficiency of Intel Xeon Scalable processors, from 11 Open Compute Project-based clusters in the Top 500 to a cloud-accessible national supercomputer in Ireland,” said Trish Damkroger, Vice President, Data Center Group, Intel. “We look forward to continuing this close collaboration with Penguin Computing in the future as the company grows and develops even more HPC, AI, and datacenter solutions using the Intel technology-based Relion server family.”
