SUPERMICRO UNVEILS NEW 2U SUPERSERVER FOR HIGH AVAILABILITY GPU COMPUTING @ SC09

by Linda Barney

Supermicro has teamed with NVIDIA on a new class of server that combines massively parallel NVIDIA® Tesla™ GPUs with multi-core CPUs in a single 2U rack-mount server.  The 2U servers offer unprecedented levels of integration and reliability for enterprise-class users providing redundancy, high-availability and performance. In addition, the Tesla GPUs can be tied directly into the remote monitoring capabilities of the server for significantly improved system level management.

Don Clegg, Vice President of Marketing of Supermicro told us that servers incorporating NVIDIA GPUs provide a major upgrade in the speed of processing tasks. “The increased speed allows our customers in areas such as video distribution or scientific applications to begin working in new ways. For instance, customers doing video processing with our servers and NVIDIA GPUs can now do almost real-time video streaming.”
