Oct. 15, 2018 — Equus Compute Solutions announces the release of its new G1460 1U 4xGPU server, ideal for GPU Direct RDMA applications and AI neural network workloads. This GPU platform offers higher performance, reduced rack space requirements, and lower power consumption compared with traditional CPU-centric platforms, in a server ideal for experimental workloads.
The innovative design of the G1460 fits four PCIe NVIDIA Telsa GPUs into a 1U chassis allowing class-leading densities. Equus is an NVIDIA Preferred Partner and the clever physical layout allows the use of Tesla V100, P100, K80,or M10 GPUs. Powered by a single Intel Xeon Scalable processor, the G1460 greatly reduces the CPU costs of the system, allowing users to focus budgetary expenditures on GPUs or additional systems.
All Equus GPU servers have the unique advantage of flexible GPU sourcing options – install your own GPUs, consign GPUs to Equus for factory installation, or purchase turnkey GPU server systems.
“Our customers have been asking for the flexibility to source GPUs in different ways on high performance servers,” said Lee Abrahamson, CTO of Equus Compute Solutions. “Our GPU servers, such as the G1460 server, are the ideal cost-optimized solutions for a wide range of AI applications and workloads. At the same time, these innovative platforms provide benefits of scale and volume, component standardization, ease of service logistics, and the means to avoid vendor lock-in.”
The G1460 supports 4x Nvidia Tesla GPUs, 2×2.5” hot-swap SSD/HDD drives, and OpenBMC readiness for open systems management support. More information about Equus Compute Solutions and the G1460 GPU server platform is available at https://www.equuscs.com/servers/gpu-servers/g1460/.
