Cirrascale GB Series GPGPU Blade Servers 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 v2 product families and the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product families, 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
