Broadberry Data Systems Allows Buyers to Test Drive New NVIDIA GPU-accelerated Servers
London, UK– Jan 26, 2021 – Broadberry Data Systems, one of the U.K.’s leading providers of customised servers, storage, and workstations, announced a new program where customers can remotely test two innovative servers that are not yet commercially available, before making a purchase decision.
Broadberry, the exclusive European partner with early access to these Supermicro-constructed servers, is offering two high-performance servers with the newly released NVIDIA® HGX™ A100 accelerated computing platform..
The first option available for remote evaluation is a 2U server containing four NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs and a total of 64 central processing unit (CPU) cores, thanks to 32 cores of the AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series dual processor system on a chip. The second option is a 4U server with eight NVIDIA A100 GPUs and a total of 128 CPU cores, thanks to 64 cores of the AMD EPYC 7002 Series dual processor system on a chip.
AMD CPUs are now used in 21 of the Top 500 Supercomputers* and the AMD EPYC CPU holds over 170 world records, according to AMD. The new NVIDIA HGX delivers up to a 20X artificial intelligence (AI) speedup out of the box, compared to previous generations with Tensor Float 32 (TF32), and a 2.5X high-performance computing speedup with FP64, according to NVIDIA.
“Europeans are quickly adopting high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) so getting the most computing power possible for your budget is critical,” said Colin Broadberry, president of Broadberry Data Systems. “That’s why it is critical to explore different options and see how new or just different technologies meet current and future needs. However, for most people, getting an evaluation model of specific equipment is not an option. That’s why we are pleased to be able to offer this remote test drive program for people interested in the latest NVIDIA GPU-accelerated offerings coupled with AMD-based CPUs.”
The servers are available for remote evaluation prior to general availability thanks to rapid development and cooperation with Broadberry’s partner Supermicro, the premier provider of advanced Server Building Block Solutions®.
“NVIDIA’s GPU Test Drive program, delivered through channel partners, provides a unique opportunity to test workloads on remote Supermicro servers leveraging NVIDIA’s HGX A100 platforms,” said Don Clegg, senior vice president, worldwide sales, Supermicro. “This program will showcase the power of these servers to support unique applications and accelerate time-to-market solutions.”
