Super Micro Computer, San Jose-based tech leader, recently introduced GPU Universal GPU System to boost IT flexibility. The new system has a modular design, giving customers unlimited upgradability, which is quite efficient in the long run.
Building up IT infrastructure is one of the costliest sections of any organisation. IT staff are not cheap. And year after year, there is something new in the market. Most of the time, newer products are more affordable, better, and more efficient.
The newly designed Universal GPU System is just such a product, cutting costs in the long run for IT infrastructure. Supermicro describes the Universal GPU System as a multi-architecture flexibly, open standards-based design.
The newly designed Universal GPU Systems are future-proof. They are a breath of fresh air for IT administrators working with a tight budget.
The Calif.-based Supermicro Computer introduced the new product on Monday. The product has room for future technologies. It is gaining a lot of attention from customers as IT system upgrades are pretty costly, and it may help reduce that. The modular device has room for various shapes of GPU, storage, and networking components.
Supermicro’s principal product designer Josh Gossman talked about the Universal GPU System. He said the company “has always had a real commitment to modularity.”
If we browse through the data centre’s new Universal GPU System, the component has dual 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. AMD has EPYC™ 7003 series processors from team red, which are powerful server-grade CPUs.
The 4U chassis supports up to 10 NVMe/SATA storage drives (2.5″). Expansion modules are optional and have a 700W thermal capacity. Learn more of the specifications here.
This article on TechKnowledge is geared towards readers keen on building their data centres. Building a data centre or upgrading components can be pretty costly. For a similar reason, businesses connect with managed service providers.
On the other hand, MSPs connect businesses with the cloud and proper IT infrastructure. Even though the subscription-based service is cheaper, having in-house data centres can be beneficial in the long run.
President and CEO of Supermicro Charles Liang said it is “a breakthrough for our industry and data centre infrastructure.” Edge computing solution provider Reliant has the same motto. They want to deploy the Universal GPU System as early as possible.
Equipping more attachments in upgradeable form factors will give flexibility to workforce management, cashier-less secure checkout systems, visual merchandising, and many different types of technologies.
At the moment, Supermicro operates in Taiwan and the U.S with a workforce capable of serving global customers. The new systems are described as “data center-class,” available in 4U and 5U sizes.
The new modular design is capable of mixing and matching components. CPU and GPU upgrades are some of the most demanding tasks in data centres. When an old generation of CPU or GPU is swapped out, it requires a change of surrounding peripherals. Storage drives may stay the same, and that is about it.
With the new solution by Supermicro, upgradability is brought to a whole new level. Supermicro platform is going through tremendous success with long-term customers, innovations, and everything a customer may need from this type of provider.
With the new “data centre-class” Universal GPU System, they again proved that delivering a new technology may seem complicated to do today. Still, when it makes innovators excited, it comes pretty naturally.
The new design can hold Nvidia HGX ™ (SXM4) with NVLink™ GPU-to-GPU interconnect and AMD Instinct™ alongside OAM. 10 full-width PCI-E 4.0 x16 GPUs is another perk of the new Universal GPU System.
