Supermicro's new solutions aim to deliver greater energy efficiency

14 Sep 2016

Supermicro’s SuperServer solutions have just been made generally available.

Its innovative and GPU optimized single root complex PCI-E design is proven to dramatically improve GPU peer-to-peer communication efficiency over QPI and PCI-E links.

Optimized for NVIDIA Tesla P100 accelerators, Supermicro says its 4U SuperServer supports up to 10 PCI-E Tesla P100 accelerators. 

Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro, says their high-performance computing solutions enable deep learning, engineering and scientific fields to scale out their compute clusters to accelerate demanding workloads.

"With our latest innovations incorporating the new NVIDIA P100 GPUs, our customers can accelerate their applications and innovations to solve the most complex real world problems,” he says.

Considering the convergence of Big Data Analytics, the latest GPU architectures, and improved Machine Learning algorithms, Supermicro states that Deep Learning applications require processing power of multiple GPUs. In particular, ones that communicate efficiently and effectively to expand the GPU network. 

Ian Buck, general manager of the Accelerated Computing Group at NVIDIA, says the new high-density servers are optimized to fully leverage the new NVIDIA Tesla P100 accelerators.

"The new SuperServers deliver superior energy-efficient performance for compute-intensive data analytics, deep learning and scientific applications while minimizing power consumption,” says Buck.

Supermicro also offers cost effective Top-of-Rack switching technologies, its new SSH-C48Q is a 1U top-of-rack switch with 48 100Gbps QSFP+ ports.

Furthermore, the company’s Server Management Software provides a multifunctional suite of tools that can help customers deploy and maintain servers in data centers.
