GIGABYTE Joins NVIDIA Certified Server and Releases Server: R282-Z96

Tai짯pei, Tai짯wan, Janu짯ary 26th 2021  GIGABYTE Tech짯no짯lo짯gy, (TWSE: 2376), an indus짯try lea짯der in high-per짯for짯mance ser짯vers and work짯sta짯tions, today announ짯ced the R282-Z96, which is a well balan짯ced approach for fast sto짯rage and high com짯pu짯te that is also one of five ser짯vers by GIGABYTE in the new짯ly announ짯ced NVIDIA pro짯gram named NVIDIA Cer짯ti짯fied. The pro짯gram will help to ensu짯re GIGABYTE ser짯vers are up and run짯ning quick짯ly for AI workloads.

NVIDIA Cer짯ti짯fied:
Com짯plex AI workloads, inclu짯ding clus짯ters, are beco짯ming more com짯mon and sys짯tem inte짯gra짯tors and IT staff must quick짯ly adapt to the chan짯ging tech짯no짯lo짯gy. In order to impro짯ve sys짯tem com짯pa짯ti짯bi짯li짯ty and con짯fi짯dence, NVIDIA has intro짯du짯ced the NVIDIA Cer짯ti짯fied Pro짯gram that vali짯da짯tes ser짯vers based on hard짯ware and NVIDIA NGC Catalog셲 soft짯ware. Curr짯ent짯ly the NVIDIA Cer짯ti짯fied sys짯tems focus on NVIDIA Ampere archi짯tec짯tu짯re and NVIDIA Mel짯lan짯ox net짯work adap짯ters, but the pro짯gram will expand. As well, cus짯to짯mers that are fami짯li짯ar with NVIDIA NGC Sup짯port Ser짯vices can use the ser짯vices for NVIDIA Certified.

Intro짯duc짯tion to R282-Z96:
Balan짯cing sto짯rage volu짯me and fast through짯put, the R282-Z96 also has high CPU and GPU com짯pu짯te poten짯ti짯al. It is a well-balan짯ced ser짯ver desi짯gned for various workloads. The R282-Z96 sup짯ports high-end, 280W, dual AMD EPYC 7002 series CPUs, and has 32 DIMMs that sup짯port fast 3200MHz (2DPC) memo짯ry con짯fi짯gu짯ra짯ti짯on. For sto짯rage, the짯re are 8 x 3.5 bays for SATA dri짯ves and 4 x 3.5 hybrid bays for NVMe or SATA dri짯ves. SAS dri짯ves are also sup짯port짯ed with an addi짯tio짯nal SAS card. For GPU com짯pu짯ting, 4 x full-height full-length (Gen4 x16) slots are available, and room for 3 x FHFL dou짯ble slot GPUs. As well, net짯wor짯king can be expan짯ded with the 2 x OCP mez짯za짯ni짯ne slots. Onboard the mother짯board is a sin짯gle M.2 drive.

Remo짯te and Mul짯ti짯ple Ser짯ver Management:
As part of GIGABYTE셲 value pro짯po짯si짯ti짯on, GIGABYTE pro짯vi짯des GIGABYTE Manage짯ment Con짯so짯le (GMC) for BMC ser짯ver manage짯ment via a web brow짯ser based plat짯form. Whe짯ther for ser짯ver moni짯to짯ring, updating BIOS and firm짯ware, or remo짯te manage짯ment, GMC deli짯vers. Addi짯tio짯nal짯ly, GIGABYTE Ser짯ver Manage짯ment (GSM) soft짯ware is free to down짯load and used to moni짯tor and mana짯ge mul짯ti짯ple ser짯vers. GMC and GSM offer gre짯at value while redu짯cing licen짯se and cus짯to짯mer main짯ten짯an짯ce costs.
