Supermicro’s new portfolio of Universal GPU servers allows clients to choose the best CPUs, GPUs, and switch configurations for their applications and workloads. Server options include dual-processor configurations with either the 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor or the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processor.
The Universal GPU system may be used to standardize HPC/AI server systems in their clusters for specific workloads on a single platform that is both adaptable and agile. This system has been tuned for a variety of GPUs, including AMD Instinct MI200 series accelerators and NVIDIA A100 GPUs, both of which were recently unveiled.
Supermicro server systems, such as the SuperBlade and BigTwin server systems, are designed for high-performance computing (HPC) applications that need high density, scalability, and power efficiency.
“Supermicro is committed to delivering complete IT Solutions composed of advanced HPC clusters for customers that outpace industry standard lead times leveraging our newly expanded US and Taiwan manufacturing facilities,” said Charles Liang, President, and CEO of Supermicro. “We can now deliver large numbers of liquid-cooled clusters that use state-of-the-art computing technologies, allowing customers to get up and running quickly, resulting in reduced costs. With our Made in the USA initiative, plus other programs, customers can design optimized HPC and AI server systems for their exact workloads. In addition, the upcoming Universal GPU system will provide customers a variety of complete systems with a choice of the CPU, GPU, and switch technologies.”
Data Center Liquid Cooling
While Supermicro continues to focus on creating the most energy-efficient air-cooled server systems, liquid cooling is becoming a must for high-performance servers like the Supermicro SuperBlade and GPU servers with the newest CPUs and GPUs. The new Supermicro production facilities are capable of producing full liquid-cooled clusters, which are then tested at scale before being sent to clients.
Supermicro has a history of designing and collaborating with partners to provide the most energy-efficient HPC systems available today. As a consequence, the Preferred Networks MN-3 Core Server designed for Intel Xeon CPUs was recently named #1 in energy efficiency on the Green 500 list, which ranks large server systems according to their performance per watt.
