ZT Systems Showcases XPO200 3U PCIe Expansion System Based on Microsoft’s Project Olympus and Featuring AMD Technology at OCP EU Summit 2018

AMSTERDAMZT Sys­tems, a lea­ding pro­vi­der of pur­po­se-built com­pu­te and sto­rage solu­ti­ons for hypers­ca­le dat­a­cen­ters, today show­ca­sed the new XPO200 3U PCIe Expan­si­on Sys­tem fea­turing AMD tech­no­lo­gy at the Open Com­pu­te EU Sum­mit. Based on Microsoft’s Pro­ject Olym­pus, this solu­ti­on lever­ages power­ful AMD acce­le­ra­tors and pro­ces­sors in a fle­xi­ble Open Com­pu­te plat­form.

The XPO200 3U PCIe Expan­si­on Sys­tem with AMD tech­no­lo­gy is desi­gned to deli­ver out­stan­ding fle­xi­bi­li­ty, per­for­mance and value for GPU-inten­si­ve sca­le-out com­pu­ting and Vir­tu­al Desk­top Infra­st­ruc­tu­re. With AMD Rade­on Instinct™ MI25 GPUs and AMD EPYC™ CPUs, this solu­ti­on is an attrac­tive opti­on for an array of modern dat­a­cen­ter app­li­ca­ti­ons.

ZT Sys­tems is plea­sed to part­ner with AMD in show­ca­sing this plat­form,” said Ray­mond Miles, ZT Sys­tems VP of Archi­tec­tu­re. “The XPO200 3U PCIe Expan­si­on Sys­tem with AMD tech­no­lo­gy deli­vers a com­pel­ling alter­na­ti­ve to help custo­mers tack­le today’s increa­singly pre­va­lent AI and deep lear­ning workloads. Lever­aging the “known good” of Microsoft’s Pro­ject Olym­pus spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on enab­led ZT to signi­fi­cant­ly acce­le­ra­te the deve­lop­ment of this plat­form, and pro­vi­des for stream­li­ned cus­to­mi­za­ti­on as necessa­ry to meet custo­mer requi­re­ments.

AMD has a long-stan­ding com­mit­ment to the Open Com­pu­te Pro­ject and is exci­ted to see Microsoft’s Pro­ject Olym­pus plat­form, to which AMD was a signi­fi­cant ear­ly con­tri­bu­tor, gain the sup­port of ZT Sys­tems’ XPO200 3U PCIe Expan­si­on Sys­tem,” said Scott Aylor, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent, dat­a­cen­ter pro­duc­ts, AMD. “The com­bi­na­ti­on of AMD Rade­on Instinct™ GPU and the AMD EPYCCPU pro­duc­ts in this ZT Sys­tems solu­ti­on deli­vers out­stan­ding vir­tua­li­za­ti­on den­si­ty and an excep­tio­nal com­bi­na­ti­on for exe­cu­ting AI and deep lear­ning workloads”

This new ZT Sys­tems expan­si­on sys­tem brings a power­ful com­bi­na­ti­on of AMD GPU and CPU tech­no­lo­gy to bear on deman­ding cloud workloads,” said Kusha­gra Vaid, Gene­ral Mana­ger and Dis­tin­guis­hed Engi­neer, Azu­re Hard­ware Infra­st­ruc­tu­re, Micro­soft Corp. “The speed and effi­ci­en­cy with which ZT deve­lo­ped this solu­ti­on demons­tra­tes why Microsoft’s Pro­ject Olym­pus spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on is the lea­ding open source hard­ware stan­dard for next-genera­ti­on dat­a­cen­ters. ZT Sys­tems con­ti­nues to demons­tra­te their abi­li­ty to rapidly deve­lop and deli­ver fle­xi­ble solu­ti­ons to the mar­ket.”

ZT Sys­tems XPO200 Ser­ver Solu­ti­ons com­bi­ne the ground­brea­king ener­gy effi­ci­en­cy, per­for­mance, ver­sa­ti­li­ty and cost effec­tiveness of Microsoft’s Pro­ject Olym­pus plat­form with ZT’s hypers­ca­le-focu­sed inte­gra­ti­on, sup­ply chain and deploy­ment capa­bi­li­ties. Custo­mers bene­fit from ZT’s uni­que expe­ri­ence deploy­ing plat­forms fea­turing the­se tech­no­lo­gies into real-world hypers­ca­le envi­ron­ments.

The XPO200 3U PCIe Expan­si­on Sys­tem with AMD tech­no­lo­gy and based on Microsoft’s Pro­ject Olym­pus can be seen at the Open Com­pu­te EU Sum­mit in Microsoft’s booth B1.
