High-Efficiency 2U Server with GPU Support, Maximum Uptime, and High-Density Storage

Relion XE2112GT GPU Server

As more organizations face challenges growing their compute capabilities, they look to NVIDIA GPU accelerators to solve their problems. Deploying GPUs enables researchers to offload compute-intensive functions from CPUs, massively improving processing times. Artificial intelligence and deep learning workloads need immense computing resources to process extreme amounts of data, which benefit from GPU density. The Penguin Computing® Relion® XE2112GT server combines GPUs acceleration and high-density storage in a 2U rackmount form factor, while offering incredible CPU performance, with two Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. Choose the Relion XE2112GT server to accelerate your data-intensive workloads that need the computing power of GPUs.
