The GPUltima: Up to a Petaflop of Networked GPUs in a Single Rack

In this week’s Sponsored Post Katie Garrison of One Stop Systems explains how GPUltima allows HPC professionals to create a highly dense compute platform that delivers a petaflop performance at greatly reduced cost and space requirements. As developers have begun requiring more GPUs to process complex applications, manufacturers have looked for new ways to add GPUs to systems. Most solutions involve adding numbers of high bandwidth slots to a system, typically accommodating up to 8 GPUs in one system. System constraints like power, cooling and BIOS issues present difficulties in supporting large numbers of these cards. One Stop Systems (OSS) put the GPUs in a separate enclosure with sufficient power and cooling and connected the enclosure to one or more dual or quad socket servers through PCIe, the servers’ native bus. The…
