AMAX, a provider of high-performance computing (HPC), is now offering the new NVIDIA Tesla K80 family of GPU (graphics processing unit) accelerators in its ClusterMax GPU cluster and ServMax GPU server platforms. These new solutions are ideal for universities, national research labs, government and enterprise HPC environments.
The ClusterMax SimCluster is an off-the-shelf, ready-to-deploy system that can deliver 67+, 134+, 268+ Teraflops of single precision per cluster. It is pre-configured with 4x, 8x or 16x Tesla K80 dual-GPU cluster nodes and has dual Intel Xeon E5-3600 v3 series processors with up to 512 GB DDR4 memory.
The ServMax is available as a 2U or 4U rack server and has options for on-board interconnectivity. Both options come with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors and DDR4 memory.
“With NVIDIA’s high-performance, energy-efficient Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerators and AMAX’s dynamic cluster and server solution designs, we are able to deliver breakthrough performance and compute efficiency for double-precision focused applications,” said Julia Shih, director of Strategic Alliances at AMAX. “With multi-GPU Hyper-Q, system monitoring, memory protection, NVIDIA GPUDirect with RDMA technologies embedded in the NVIDIA GPU compute architecture, the performance increases we’ve seen in data analytics, satellite imaging, and weather modeling applications have simply been astounding.”
