Share Article

QCT showcases the QuantaPlex T21W-3U—an x86-based system that employs high-speed NVLink-to-GPU interconnection—and three other next-gen GPU platforms at the GPU Technology Conference.

QCT is making bold steps to give the industry a diversity of hardware platform choices, each designed to support unique, new workloads that harness the many new machine learning technologies that are emerging.

QCT, advanced hardware and integrated systems provider to cloud datacenters worldwide, today introduced a lineup of next-generation platforms designed specifically for artificial intelligence, business analytics and deep learning use cases.

These platforms will be on display at the GPU Technology Conference 2016, April 4-7, in San Jose at the McEnery Convention Center, Booth 1018.

1. QuantaPlex T21W-3U:
This x86 server employs high-bandwidth and energy-efficient NVLink interconnects to enable extremely fast communication between eight of the latest NVidia GPU modules (SXM2).

The NVLink technology yields data-sharing rates up to 12 times faster than conventional PCIe Gen3 interconnection protocols. The QuantaPlex T21W-3U provides an architecture supporting thousands of cores for advanced parallel computing. The product is ideally suited for a multitude of processor-intensive applications, including pattern analytics, forecasting, image-intensive processing, high-performance computing, computation research and deep learning.

2. Rackgo X Big Sur:
Fresh off its debut at the OCP Summit, it is an Open Rack GPU-acceleration system designed for deep learning applications. Rackgo X Big Sur comprises a dual-socket Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 family and 16x memory slots. It also includes eight GPU boards at up to 300 watts that are compatible with Intel® Xeon Phi™ and nVidia’s K80/M40 (new with 24GB GDDR5 memory SKU) series.

Additionally, QCT will showcase its most popular rackmount server, QuantaGrid D51B-1U, refreshed with the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family. With Tesla M4 enabled, this OCP-inspired system offers the highest hyperscale throughput at optimal power consumption.

The QxVDI VMware Edition-3D also will be on display, representing pioneering QCT designs for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). The QCT QxVDI VMware Edition-3D provides a faster and more secure interactive graphic experience across devices for knowledge workers, power users and designers.

QCT experts will present a session titled, “Making Business Intelligence and Deep Learning Accessible with Cloud, OCP, and Pascal GPUs” on Day 3 (Wednesday, April 6) at 9 am in Room 210G.

“AI and machine learning are opening new frontiers in the cloud datacenter,” said Mike Yang, general manager of QCT, a platinum sponsor of the event. “QCT is making bold steps to give the industry a diversity of hardware platform choices, each designed to support unique, new workloads that harness the many new machine learning technologies that are emerging.”
