Supermicro Debuts SuperServer Optimized for NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU

November 18, 2013

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 18 — Super Micro Computer, Inc., a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing, exhibits its latest high-performance computing (HPC) solutions at the Supercomputing 2013 (SC13) conference this week in Denver, Colorado. In sync with the launch of the NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU accelerator, Supermicro debuts new 4U 8x GPU SuperServer that supports the new and existing active or passive GPUs (up to 300W) with an advanced cooling architecture that splits the CPU (up to 150W x2) and GPU (up to 300W x8) cooling zones on separate levels for maximum performance and reliability. In addition, Supermicro has 1U, 2U, 3U SuperServers, FatTwin, SuperWorkstations and SuperBlade platforms ready to support the new K40 GPU accelerator. These high performance, high density servers support up to twenty GPU accelerators per system and in scaled out Super Clusters provide massive parallel processing power to accelerate the most demanding compute intensive applications. Supermicro’s new platforms extend the industry’s most comprehensive line of servers, storage, networking and server management solutions optimized for Engineering and Scientific Research, Modeling, Simulation and HPC supercomputing applications.

“Supermicro’s HPC servers and solutions deliver the performance, scalability and reliability needed to answer the most complex challenges of our time,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “Our extensive supercomputing solutions range from 5x GPU workstations to 6x GPUs in 1U/2U, 8x GPUs in 4U and 30x GPUs in 7U blade severs. Our GPU platforms are unrivaled in the industry and provide exactly the best configurations optimized for any scientific, engineering or big data analytics application. With the addition of a new 4U single node, 8x GPU server and a new 2U TwinPro platform, the HPC community can build even higher density compute clusters to deliver maximum parallel computing performance per watt, per dollar, per square foot.”

“The Tesla K40 GPU accelerator provides double the memory and 10 times higher performance than today’s fastest CPUs, enabling enterprise data center and HPC customers to solve their most complex engineering and big data analytics computing challenges,” said Sumit Gupta, general manager of Tesla Accelerated Computing Products at NVIDIA. “When combined with Supermicro’s high-density, scalable systems, the new Kepler-based accelerators deliver high performance computational horsepower with maximum energy efficiency.”
