The GS-R22PHL is an HPC cluster node designed and optimized for computing accelerators such as the Intel® Xeon Phi™ and Nvidia® Tesla® product lines, this 2U rack offers nothing less than the ability to receive up to 8 double slot GPU/MIC cards when the rest of the market offers 2U racks that can receive up to 6 cards at best.
Those 8 cards are supported by a central backbone made of a dual socket platform supporting the Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 product family, a dual 10G BASE-T and an optional dual 10G SFP+ LAN controllers, up to 512GB of ECC memory, and 8 x 2.5” hot-swappable HDD bays supporting SAS 6Gbs (option) or SATA 6Gbs revisions
This unprecedented computing density will satisfy the needs of organizations seeking the largest amount of computing power and a minimal footprint at the same time. Indeed, the GS-R22PHL is a highly energy efficient system thanks to Gigabyte’s innovative rack design and internal placement. Thanks to its power saving architecture, including high performance 80mm fans and a top efficiency (80PLUS Platinum level) 1600W redundant power supply, this product shows excellent airflow and thermal properties and manages to keep the power consumption at the lowest levels possible. This combination of large computing capability, high energy efficiency and compact 2U footprint allows the GS-R22PHL to deliver extreme megaflops per watt performance and therefore to help the most advanced HPC infrastructures to significantly drive their energy consumption down while boosting the execution of their applications.
With such power, this system is able to offer vast gains in processing time for the most computing intensive applications, from cutting-edge rendering farms to the latest simulations in leading scientific research.
