High-Efficiency 2U Server with Dense GPU Support and Maximum Uptime

Relion XE2118GT GPU Server

As more organizations look to grow their compute capabilities, they look to GPU accelerators to do so. Deploying GPU’s allows you to offload compute-intensive functions from CPUs, massively improving processing times. This is why workloads like artificial intelligence and deep learning, which need immense computing resources to process extreme amounts of data, benefit from GPU density. The Penguin Computing® Relion® XE2118GT server packs 8 GPUs in a 2U rackmount form factor, while not sacrificing CPU performance, with two Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. Choose the Relion XE2118GT server to power data-intensive workloads that need the computing power of GPU accelerators.
