Dense GPU Server Configurations

Equus delivers market leading high density GPU configurations using the latest NVIDIA and Intel Xeon Phi™ technologies.

Equus continues to enable a highly scalable, energy efficient future for parallel computing with our latest supercomputing solution. Utilizing our expertise in maximizing compute density, performance and power efficiency, Equus has configured the following server for high GPU density and performance in a 1U server. This 1U server can hold 4 NVIDIA Tesla K80 GPUs, and uses 9 standard and 2 optional 4cm heavy duty fans to keep this powerful server cool. This system is currently configured with Dual Xeon® E5-2650v4 12-Core 2.2Ghz 30M Cache, 256GB DDR4 2400 RDIMM, Intel Dual Port 10GbE SFP+ with Optics and Single Port Mellanox ConnectX-3 VPU Pro for 10/40/56Gb connectivity, Micron 5100 Pro 240GB SATA SSD boot drive, Tool less Quick Rails, and DCMS Data Center Management Software with iKVM. This server will run in up to 35 degree ambient temperature allowing for warm datacenter operation to save on cooling costs.

Key Benefits:
• A CPU direct connect design optimizes signal integrity and airflow to eliminate the GPU pre-heating, PCI-E extension cables, and re-drivers.
• Reduced complexity, cost, power consumption and latency as compared to other vendor solutions
• Higher power efficiency by using fully redundant Titanium Level (96%+) power supplies
• Supports up to 4x 2.5” drive bays with fully redundant power supplies
• Uniquely supports NVIDIA GeForce GPU cards for customer applications
