QCT Now Offering AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Processor Based Systems to Customers Who Want to Transform Their Data Centers

QCT Announces Availability of Systems Featuring AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processors


SAN JOSE, Calif.—August 9, 2019—Quanta Cloud Tech­no­lo­gy (QCT), a glo­bal data cen­ter solu­ti­on pro­vi­der, announ­ced the avai­la­bi­li­ty of its com­pre­hen­si­ve sys­tems fea­turing AMD EPYC™ 7002 Seri­es Pro­ces­sors. With the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors on Quan­taGrid and Quan­taPlex ser­vers, cus­to­mers get a new level of inte­gra­ti­on and per­for­mance for their modern data cen­ters.


QCT’s Total Cloud Solu­ti­ons based on 2nd Gen AMD EPYC Pro­ces­sors make data cen­ters more respon­si­ve to today’s workload deman­ds and are focu­sed to address tho­se com­ing in the future. The­se 2nd Gen AMD EPYC based solu­ti­ons are set to deli­ver a new stan­dard for data cen­ters cus­to­mers. With twice the num­ber of cores com­pa­red to the 1st Gen AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors, and built on the 7nm pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy, QCT has alrea­dy seen over 2x per­for­mance impro­ve­ment on CPU and memo­ry pro­ces­sing over its pro­ducts using the 1st Gen EPYC[i]. QCT’s pro­ducts also fea­ture ser­vicea­bi­li­ty opti­ons such as tool-less, modu­la­ri­zed, and hot swapp­a­ble com­pon­ents that are strai­ght­for­ward and prac­ti­cal­ly lea­ve no down­ti­me as tech­ni­ci­ans don’t need to remo­ve a who­le chas­sis from the rack.


QCT is always loo­king to help our cus­to­mers adapt quick­ly to chan­ging workload needs,” said Mike Yang, Pre­si­dent of QCT. “The­re­fo­re, tog­e­ther with AMD, we are deli­vering inno­va­tions com­bi­ning all the advan­ta­ges of AMD EPYC pro­ces­sors with our com­pre­hen­si­ve, con­sis­tent designs to allow our cus­to­mers to trans­form their infra­st­ruc­tu­re with the right resour­ces to dri­ve per­for­mance and redu­ce bot­t­len­ecks.”


Dri­ven by AMD’s histo­ry of data cen­ter inno­va­ti­on, inclu­ding 7nm pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy, the first x86 sup­plier to sup­port PCIe 4.0, and embed­ded secu­ri­ty fea­tures, the AMD EPYC 7002 Seri­es Pro­ces­sors set a new stan­dard for the modern dat­a­cen­ter,” said Scott Aylor, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, Dat­a­cen­ter Solu­ti­ons Group, AMD. “Tog­e­ther, the­se inno­va­tions deli­ver the bre­akthrough per­for­mance cus­to­mers need.”


With this launch, QCT is com­bi­ning its ulti­ma­te com­pu­te and sto­rage den­si­ty with AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor bre­akthrough CPU per­for­mance. QCT worked on the designs for the­se 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ Pro­ces­sors ahead of others and was one of the first to power on the­se pro­ces­sors. The cul­mi­na­ti­on is a seri­es of scala­b­le con­fi­gu­ra­ti­ons ful­ly opti­mi­zed for PCIe® 4.0 and diver­si­fied I/O opti­ons for not only AI workloads, but also CDN, and Big Data.


QCT Ser­vers fea­turing the AMD EPYC 7002 Seri­es Pro­ces­sors are as fol­lows:


  • Quan­taGrid D43K-1U – desi­gned to unleash the power with dual AMD EPYC 7002 Seri­es Pro­ces­sors. Fea­turing up to 4TB memo­ry capa­ci­ty, 5 expan­si­on slots, and sin­gle width GPU sup­port wit­hin a 1U chas­sis.
  • Quan­taGrid D43KQ-2U – powe­red by dual AMD EPYC™ 7002 Seri­es Pro­ces­sors sup­por­ting up to 10 PCIe® 4.0 expan­si­on slots and capa­bi­li­ties. It fea­tures two dual-width GPU acce­le­ra­tors with opti­mi­zed ther­mal con­di­ti­ons, 24 U.2 NVMe dri­ves, and tool-les­s/hot swapp­a­ble ser­vicea­bi­li­ty com­pon­ents found in all QCT rack­mount ser­vers.
  • Quan­taGrid S43KL-1U – is a sin­gle socket AMD EPYC 7002 Seri­es Pro­ces­sor com­pu­te ser­ver, fea­turing up to 2TB memo­ry capa­ci­ty, up to 12 NVMe SSDs and 5 expan­si­on slots to chal­len­ge the tra­di­ti­on dual socket data cen­ter sys­tems. It also sup­ports sin­gle width GPU and PCIe®0.
  • Quan­taGrid D42A-2U – is a sin­gle socket AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor sto­rage ser­ver desi­gned for inten­se sto­rage I/O, per­fect for SDS, CDN, and a varie­ty of data­ba­se workloads. Sup­port for up to 24 U.2 NVMe SSDs and mul­ti­ple high speed NICs also make this the per­fect NVMe­oF tar­get.
  • Quan­taPlex S43CA-2U – is a mul­ti-node sin­gle socket ser­ver that sup­ports the AMD EPYC 7002 Seri­es Pro­ces­sors. Each of the 4 nodes in this com­pact 2U chas­sis is capa­ble of sup­por­ting the top bin 2nd Gen AMD EPYC Pro­ces­sors, boas­ting a domi­nant 64-cores along with 16 DIMM slots that can meet the most inten­se com­pu­ting envi­ron­ment needs.
