Fujitsu Brings NVIDIA GPU-Accelerated Supercomputing to the Masses
NVIDIA today announced that NVIDIA Tesla GPUs are now available in Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY CX400 S1 servers, offering high-performance GPU-accelerated computing to Fujitsu’s large installed base of customers in Japan and Europe. Fujitsu designed the PRIMERGY CX400 S1 server for high performance in a compact form factor by using half-wide, two-socket server nodes – doubling the number of cores per unit height. The system houses either four 1U hot-plug PRIMERGY CX250 S1 server nodes with two CPUs per node, or two 2U hot-plug CX270 S1 server nodes with two CPUs and one NVIDIA Tesla GPU per node. The Fujitsu PRIMERGY CX270 is shown below with an NVIDIA GK110 powered GPU inside.
“The Fujitsu PRIMERGY Multi-Node CX400 demonstrates Fujitsu’s philosophy of field innovation and a constant drive to increase the power and flexibility of our scale-out server systems for both HPC and cloud computing environments,” said Jens-Peter Seick, senior vice president of Product Development Group at Fujitsu Technology Solutions. “With support for NVIDIA GPUs, the system dramatically increases computational performance, while reducing costs and power consumption. This combination is exactly what today’s HPC customers are looking for.”
