Cirrascale GB1600 GPGPU Blade Server

GPU-accelerated computing is enabling various scientific, analytics, engineering, consumer, and enterprise applications worldwide. GPU accelerators now power energy-efficient datacenters in government labs, universities, enterprises, and small-and-medium businesses around the world. The Cirrascale GB1600 Series servers are designed to enable GPUs, such as the NVIDIA® Tesla® K80 Dual-GPU Accelerators, in a 1VU blade chassis for use in the Cirrascale BladeRack 2 Series of data center platforms.

Product Features and Benefits

  • Maximum performance with the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product families.
  • Capable of handling up to 1TB of DDR4 2133/1866/1600MHz Memory
  • Supports PCIe Gen 3.0 compatible devices, including the latest NVIDIA® Tesla® K80 Dual-GPU Accelerators.

Cirrascale GB1600 GPGPU Server Overview

Cirrascale GPU blades are the ideal solution for GPU-based high performance computing needs. Solutions can be tailored for use with computational fluid dynamics, seismic data processing, life sciences, electronic design automation and more.

Our GPU blades perform at the highest levels thanks to the award-winning Vertical Cooling Technology contained within the BladeRack 2 XL and FL platforms. Cirrascale's Patented Vertical Cooling Technology creates a high velocity stream of cool air driving away hot air created by high performance components like GPU's and power supplies. Other blade server and storage installations utilize traditional front to back cooling, which creates hot and cold aisles in the data center as well as causing hot spots that can lead to system failure.

Additionally, with the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family, Cirrascale's BladeRack 2 Series GPU blades are designed to give customers breakthrough performance, higher density and larger energy savings. Delivering the technologies needed to replace an inefficient and aging installed-base, Cirrascale's latest GB Series blades facilitate higher utilization while providing amazing computing performance.

With these new products, Cirrascale is facilitating data center transformation by providing scalable performance and reduced power consumption. Customers deploying next generation scale-out infrastructure benefit from the combination of Intel's latest processor platforms with Cirrascale's Vertical Cooling Technology, enabling extreme density and unmatched efficiency and reliability

With the consistent advances in technology, Cirrascale engineering and development teams are constantly testing and deploying the latest technical specifications being offered by our technology partners.

Cirrascale's peer to peer technology allows us to unlock the true power of NVIDIA GPUs for scientific computation. This is the first platform of its kind and provides the unprecedented bandwidth needed to scale an individual molecular dynamics simulation with AMBER across all the GPUs within a node. This previously unattainable performance will have impact on many fields.
