Supermicro breidt op NVIDIA Ampere-architectuur gebaseerde GPU-productlijn voor AI in bedrijven uit met als primeur in de branche een 5 petaFLOPS

De NVIDIA-gecertificeerde systemen van de nieuwe generatie van Supermicro, voorgesteld op NVIDIA GTC21, leveren 4,8 TB/sec GPU Interconnect, een GPU-tot-netwerkkaartverhouding van 1:1 en ondersteuning voor lucht- of vloeistofkoeloplossingen

SAN JOSE, Californië, 12 april 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. , een globale leider in bedrijfscomputersystemen, opslag, netwerken en groene computertechnologie vergroot zijn marktleiderschap in de groeiende gebieden van artificiële intelligentie (AI), machinaal leren (ML), high-performance computing (HPC), visualisatie van 3D-graphics en computervirtualisatie. Supermicro heeft het breedste Tier 1-portfolio van systemen die hypermoderne capaciteiten integreren en zo 5 petaFLOPS van AI-prestatie in een 4U-vormfactor bereiken met de nieuwste NVIDIA A100-, NVIDIA A40-, NVIDIA [https://c212.net/c/link/?t=0&l=nl&o=3124867-1&h=1757157144&u=https%3A%2F%2Fc212.net%2Fc%2Flink%2F%3Ft%3D0%26l%3Den%26o%3D3124867-1%26h%3D4289431760%26u%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.nvidia.com%252Fen-us%252Fdesign-visualization%252Frtx-a6000%252F%26a%3DNVIDIA%2B&a=NVIDIA%C2%A0]RTX A6000- en de nieuwe NVIDIA A30-, NVIDIA A10- en NVIDIA A16-GPU's.

"Dankzij onze samenwerking met NVIDIA kunnen we een volledig portfolio van GPU-systemen en -platformen ontwerpen die zorgen voor een maximale keuze voor onze klanten. Klanten kunnen hun werklastbehoeften precies afstellen op de systeemarchitectuur om zo een superieure prestatie, doeltreffendheid en kostprijs te verkrijgen," zei Charles Liang, voorzitter en CEO van Supermicro. "Supermicro biedt geoptimaliseerde systemen met meerdere GPU's die geavanceerde oplossingen leveren zoals AI, diep leren, HPC en videostreamingtoepassingen. Door onze bouwsteenoplossingen en markintroductievoordeel optimaal te benutten blijven we op het gebied van toepassingen geoptimaliseerde oplossingen ontwikkelen en uitgeven. Ons flexibel 2U GPU-systeem met 2 knooppunten en PCIe 4.0 is afgestemd voor gamen in de cloud en social media en is toonaangevend in de sector met ondersteuning voor maximaal drie GPU's met dubbele breedte of zes GPU's met enkele breedte per knooppunt."

Het assortiment van Supermicro's systemen omvat de volgende topproducten: de op Intel gebaseerde SYS-420GP-TNAR of de op AMD gebaseerde AS -4124GO-NART(+), met de 4U-server aangedreven door de NVIDIA HGX A100 8-GPU-kaart, met naar keuze ofwel 40 GB (HBM2) of 80 GB (HBM2e) geheugen op elke GPU. Deze systemen worden momenteel wereldwijd verkocht.

"Van door AI aangedreven ontdekking van geneesmiddelen tot het ontwerpen van geavanceerde, efficiënte fabrieken, versnelde computerapparatuur is vandaag de dag essentieel voor het aandrijven van de meest innovatieve taken in de wereld," aldus Justin Boitano, vice president and general manager, Enterprise and Edge Computing bij NVIDIA. "Supermicro's NVIDIA-gecertificeerde systemen bieden klanten een breed assortiment servers die gebouwd zijn om topprestaties af te leveren voor AI, graphics en simulatietaken in het datacenter, naar de cloud, naar de edge."

De nieuwe systemen kunnen diverse geavanceerde applicatiewerklasten uitvoeren, zoals het NVIDIA AI Enterprise-softwarepakket, dat geoptimaliseerd en gecertificeerd is door NVIDIA om te draaien op VMware vSphere en NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise, een end-to-end realtime simulatie- en samenwerkingsplatform dat transformatieve 3D-workstromen naar organisaties van elke grootte brengt. Supermicro stelt deze op vlak van prestatie leidende oplossingen deze week tentoon op de NVIDIA GTC21-conferentie.

Van de edge tot de cloud, AI, ML, HPC en 3D-visualisatie zijn kritieke technologieën aan het worden die alle organisaties en sectoren in de armen moeten sluiten. Door systemen te ontwikkelen en platformen af te leveren die de nieuwste hardware en software opnemen, kunnen sommige ondernemingen snel productief worden en hun nieuwste oplossingen implementeren, met een reeks vormfactoren. Supermicro is een leidende deelnemer in het NVIDIA-gecertificeerd systeemprogramma, dat de hardware- en softwareconfiguraties valideert die nodig zijn voor een maximale productiviteit. Deze systemen kunnen gigantische hoeveelheden data verwerken met geavanceerde netwerken, waardoor complexe modellen ontwikkeld kunnen worden, en incorporeren nieuwe AI en andere geavanceerde algoritmes. 3D-visualisatie maakt een beter begrip van fysieke realiteit mogelijk, terwijl de virtualisatie van graphics IT-beheerders in staat stelt om systeeminfrastructuur te consolideren en hun data te centraliseren en beveiligen. NVIDIA-gecertificeerde systemen zorgen voor een gemakkelijke en snelle ontplooiing in de datacenters. Supermicro leidt de sector ook met NEBS Level 3-gecertificeerde GPU-servers voor 5G- en telecomklanten.

Supermicro, steeds de eerste op de markt, ondersteunt de nieuwste hardware- en softwareoplossingen van NVIDIA. Het assortiment ondersteunde GPU's omvat de NVIDIA A100 80GB-, A100 40GB-, A40-, RTX A6000-, A30-, A10- en A16-GPU's, gericht op AI-inferentie en regulier computerwerk, graphics en video, en virtuele desktops, allemaal met AI-technologieën. Alle NVIDIA-producten zijn beschikbaar in een breed scala Supermicro-systemen die gebruik maken van schaalbare Intel Xeon-processors of AMD EPYC CPU's, beide van de derde generatie. Dankzij Supermicro's uitmuntend design worden meer GPU's gestopt in minder ruimte (hogere densiteit) dan bij andere systeemleveranciers. Al deze nieuwe GPU-systemen zijn NVIDIA-gecertificeerd of bevinden zich in het certificatieproces.

Human Lab releases a new docudrama about the Chinese symbolic pharmaceutical entrepreneur Zhao Zhiquan

BEIJING, April 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The newly released docudrama by the leading Chinese video production company Human Lab reveals the legendary moments of Zhao Zhiquan, a symbolic pharmaceutical entrepreneur in China.

In the winter of 1993, due to an economic downturn in the market, thousands of enterprises went bankrupt one after another. Tannan Pharmaceutical Factory led by Zhao Zhiquan was also facing the risk of bankruptcy.

Someone proposed to fire half of the employees in the factory, but Zhao Zhiquan was strongly opposed to it. After many failed attempts, Zhao went to north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region for help.

Unfortunately, his car broke down on the middle of the road. Zhao passed out in the snowstorm and was found and taken home by an old villager. The old villager suffered from coronary heart disease. Zhao saw him divide a piece of medicine into eight because of poverty, which inspired his decision to transform Tannan Pharmaceutical Factory from producing conventional medicine into critical care medicine.

Due to the lack of funds, Zhao raised money from 235 employees in the factory to develop "Xinkang", a special drug for coronary heart disease. At the fund-raising conference, Zhao said that although there are many ways to make money, his original intention to start a pharmaceutical factory was to make people healthy and allow those who cannot afford imported drugs to be able to afford domestic trustworthy medicine. Zhang's speech won the support of all the employees.

Finally, "Xinkang" was successfully produced, and its price was only one-fourth of that of imported drugs, which is a boon for countless patients.

Zhao's story touched many netizens. "It is a great national spirit that we do not give up when encountering difficulties, forge ahead bravely, work hard, constantly strive for self-improvement, respect science and seek truth from facts. No nation can be as united as the Chinese people. I am the people, the people of China!"

Zhao Zhiquan spent 27 years turning Tannan Pharmaceutical Factory into Lunan Pharmaceutical Group Co., Ltd, a modern pharmaceutical company with international competitiveness. He made contributions to promoting local economic development lifting poor people out of poverty. Zhao died in 2014. Instead of letting his families lead the enterprise, he chose a successor who can lead the enterprise to go further. He devoted himself to his lifelong career and the society, with his vision, generosity, and responsibility as an entrepreneur. With hard work and dedication, Zhao has fulfilled his commitment to employees and society.

In fact, there are thousands of Chinese entrepreneurs like Zhao. China's entrepreneurial spirit runs deeper than just in business. It manifests itself in the desires of ordinary Chinese people.
