Use Altus servers based on AMD EPYC processors

Power the Most Demanding Workloads with the Breakthrough Performance of AMD EPYC Processors

With up to 64 high-performance cores, 4TB of DDR4-3200MHz memory, and 128 PCIe lanes, AMD EYPCTM 7002 series processors provide the performance necessary to handle the most demanding workloads. At Penguin Computing, we have engineered the Altus® family of compute servers to maximize the benefits of EPYC in various ways. Single-socket systems, like the Altus XE1111, take advantage of the high core counts and clock speeds of the EYPC processor to provide a powerful system in a cost-effective, single-CPU configuration. Meanwhile, dual-socket systems, like the Altus XE2112, allow for unmatched performance and compute density for the most demanding HPC workloads.

Altus servers are also available as a part of the Tundra Extreme Scale compute platform, bringing the performance of the EPYC processor to the high-efficiency, scalable infrastructure of the Open Compute Project. For customers looking for GPU-accelerated systems to power artificial intelligence, big data analytics, and similar workloads, the Altus family includes PCIe-based GPU-accelerated servers for OCP deployments.

  • Form Factor Options The Altus Product Family includes standard 19” EIA and 21” OCP systems as a part of the TundraTM Extreme Scale solution.
  • GPU-Accelerated Systems GT series systems support PCIe-based GPUs
  • Linux Options Enterprise-supported and community Linux distribution options available
  • Warrantied A three-year warranty is included with every server

Get Ready for The Future

Graphics processing unit (GPU)-accelerated computing occurs when you use a GPU in combination with a CPU, letting the GPU handle as much of the parallel process application code as possible. The GPU takes the parallel computing approach orders of magnitude beyond the CPU, offering thousands of compute cores. This can accelerate some software by 100x over a CPU alone. Plus, the GPU achieves this acceleration while being more power- and cost-efficient than a CPU.

Because the Penguin Computing team (2017 NVIDIA Partner of the Year) is experienced with building both CPU and GPU-based systems.
