GIGABYTE and Northern Data AG Agree to Develop HPC Data Centers


Tai짯pei, Tai짯wan, August 12th 2020  GIGABYTE Tech짯no짯lo짯gy, (TWSE: 2376), an indus짯try lea짯der in high-per짯for짯mance ser짯vers and work짯sta짯tions, today is announ짯cing a part짯ner짯ship with Ger짯man based Nor짯t짯hern Data AG, one of the world셲 lar짯gest pro짯vi짯ders of High-Per짯for짯mance Com짯pu짯ting (HPC) solu짯ti짯ons, to deve짯lop dis짯tri짯bu짯ted com짯pu짯ting in Nor짯t짯hern Data셲 data cen짯ters. The짯se data cen짯ters with GIGABYTE built HPC ser짯vers will be loca짯ted in the Nor짯dics and mana짯ged by Nor짯t짯hern Data.

GIGABYTE has more than 30 years of engi짯nee짯ring exper짯ti짯se and suc짯cess sto짯ries in the deve짯lo짯p짯ment and pro짯duc짯tion of ser짯ver solu짯ti짯ons that cover a myri짯ad of uses from AI ser짯vers to GPU den짯se ser짯vers to sci짯en짯ti짯fic com짯pu짯ting ser짯vers and more. The suc짯cess that GIGABYTE셲 ser짯vers and work짯sta짯tions have had attri짯bu짯tes to the qua짯li짯ty and resi짯li짯en짯cy inher짯ent in the deve짯lo짯p짯ment of manu짯fac짯tu짯ring pro짯ces짯ses, while also lis짯tening to cus짯to짯mer needs to pro짯du짯ce best-fit solutions.

At Nor짯t짯hern Data, a team of AI deve짯lo짯p짯ment and dis짯tri짯bu짯ted com짯pu짯ting experts pri짯de them짯sel짯ves in an archi짯tec짯tu짯re of cus짯tom soft짯ware and hard짯ware solu짯ti짯ons that is effi짯ci짯ent, relia짯ble and powerful using the latest CPU and GPU tech짯no짯lo짯gies. Nor짯t짯hern Data has pro짯ven that their high짯ly effi짯ci짯ent mobi짯le con짯tai짯ners fit in dif짯fe짯rent, chal짯len짯ging ope짯ra짯ting envi짯ron짯ments for data cen짯ters. Nor짯t짯hern Data is using the data cen짯ters for AI, big data ana짯ly짯tics, block짯chain appli짯ca짯ti짯ons and more, run짯ning on GIGABYTE ser짯vers with Nor짯t짯hern Data pro짯prie짯ta짯ry soft짯ware to levera짯ge mas짯si짯ve par짯al짯lel pro짯ces짯sing capa짯bi짯li짯ties of GPU clusters.

In order to build high per짯for짯mance data cen짯ters for the future, Nor짯t짯hern Data and GIGABYTE will work hand in hand on HPC sys짯tems that are bench짯mark짯ed against strict cri짯te짯ria and pur짯po짯sed for a wide ran짯ge of end use cases. GIGABYTE will sup짯p짯ly all key com짯pon짯ents and build the sys짯tems for Nor짯t짯hern Data, who will be con짯duc짯ting per짯for짯mance tests to ensu짯re that the sys짯tems meet Nor짯t짯hern Data셲 tech짯ni짯cal requi짯re짯ments. Once the sys짯tems are deploy짯ed at Nor짯t짯hern Data셲 data cen짯ters, they will be hand짯ling workloads in Vir짯tu짯al Machi짯nes (VM) for AI and 3D appli짯ca짯ti짯ons, among other workloads such as game strea짯ming. To bet짯ter ful짯ly uti짯li짯ze the data cen짯ter ser짯vers when com짯pu짯te demand is on a redu짯ced level, such as during off-peak hours, the dis짯tri짯bu짯ted com짯pu짯ting archi짯tec짯tu짯re will pro짯vi짯de fle짯xi짯ble con짯text swit짯ching, which in turn allo짯ca짯tes ser짯ver resour짯ces to block짯chain appli짯ca짯ti짯ons. This approach pre짯vents the ser짯ver sys짯tems from sit짯ting unde짯r짯uti짯li짯zed and enables them to increase return on investment.

Aroosh Thil짯lai짯nathan, CEO of Nor짯t짯hern Data AG, says: 쏷he demand for HPC is boo짯ming; the ren짯de짯ring and AI sec짯tors are enorm짯ous growth mar짯kets. We are plea짯sed to have GIGABYTE tech짯no짯lo짯gy on board as our deve짯lo짯p짯ment part짯ner to dri짯ve for짯ward tho짯se kinds of HPC appli짯ca짯ti짯ons that go far bey짯ond block짯chain. We have alre짯a짯dy work짯ed tog짯e짯ther on various GPU-based HPC pro짯jects, as we belie짯ve GIGABYTE셲 ser짯vers are among the best hard짯ware for HPC in the world.

Tho짯mas Yen, Sales and BDM at GIGABYTE Tech짯no짯lo짯gy goes on to say: 쏻e are plea짯sed to now offi짯ci짯al짯ly announ짯ce our part짯ner짯ship with Nor짯t짯hern Data. We see gre짯at poten짯ti짯al in our joint짯ly desi짯gned GPU clus짯ters. We are exci짯ted to work clo짯se짯ly with Nor짯t짯hern Data as a stra짯te짯gic part짯ner and high-poten짯ti짯al cus짯to짯mer in the field of HPC.
