Boston Limited launches SuperFlex Blade server for enterprise computing

Combines Intel Xenon 5600 with NVIDIA Tesla 2050 and 2070 GPU for computational performance

By CBR Staff Writer

Boston Limited, a distribution partner for Silicon Valley-based Super Micro Computer, has launched its new blade server offering Boston SuperFlex Blade, a hybrid parallel compute processing power for technical and enterprise computing.

SuperFlex Blade platforms offer flexibility for Blade Servers by providing 2 x PCI-Express x 16 expansion slots per blade with support for dual full-length and double-height expansion cards.

The SuperFlex Blade is used for hybrid computing and also suitable for the applications requiring high-speed and high-density processing with maximised GPU and CPU compute performance, the company said.

This system is suitable for most resource computing as it has been optimised with two independent, high-bandwidth, low-latency onboard QDR InfiniBand controllers standard.

Boston Limited managing director Manoj Nayee said the SuperFlex Blade has been developed to solve the key scalability and usability challenges that face users in high performance computing (HPC) environments.

"Using the Supermicro 10-bay blade enclosure, it offers compute density when equipped with two double-width GPU accelerators," Manoj Nayee.

The SuperFlex Blade provides hybrid computational power by combining the latest technologies made available by Intel Xeon 5600 processors in conjunction with the latest generation of NVIDIA Tesla 2050 and 2070 GPU compute processors for computational performance.

Supermicro vice president of Sales-International Wally Liaw said this new GPU-optimised blade design offers a higher level of computing performance, density and performance-per-watt.

"By supporting up to twenty GPU cards in one 7U blade enclosure, this offering delivers the highest GPU density," Liaw said.
