Most data collected and stored by organisations currently goes unused. But NVIDIA GPU-accelerated computing is set to change this. According to analyst firm Gartner, the server GPU market continues to expand at more than 20% CAGR1. Enterprises are increasingly using GPUs in data centres to significantly accelerate workloads, including AI and data science, deep learning, data analytics, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and graphics.
Explicitly designed for GPU-accelerated workloads, the new Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY GX2460 M1 optimises both compute capability plus NVIDIA GPU operation and data transfer, leveraging the latest processor technology with advanced AMD processors and high-speed PCIe Gen4.0 lanes. This brings a considerable boost in server performance for data-intensive workloads. Organisations can create a competitive advantage by unlocking more insights and deriving faster value from their data, allowing them to transform customer experiences, open up new markets, and make employees and processes more productive.
Excellent price-performance for advanced enterprise workloads
Offering an excellent price-performance ratio for a wide range of advanced enterprise workloads, the dual-socket rack server PRIMERGY GX2460 M1 features second-generation AMD EPYC series CPU processors up to 32 cores, 1TB DDR4 memory and up to four NVIDIA data centre GPUs. Eight NVMe/SATA drives guarantee lightning-fast storage for large amounts of data, while up to six2 high-speed PCIe Gen4.0 interfaces support GPUs, storage and networking card options for flexible expandability. With its compact form factor, the versatile server is designed for energy efficiency, ensuring lower total cost of ownership. It is easily managed alongside other data centre infrastructure via the Fujitsu Software Infrastructure Manager (ISM).
Oliver Delachapelle, Head of Category Management Products Europe at Fujitsu, says: “Data is the key business enabler in today’s data-centric world, for all industries, regardless of company size. As information continues to grow exponentially, organisations need to move it faster, store more of it and process it across edge, data centre and cloud. GPU-accelerated computing is the platform they need to do this intelligently. That’s why we have expanded the PRIMERGY portfolio with the introduction of the PRIMERGY GX2460 M1 – an all-new, state-of-the-art server category that gives customers an ideal solution for all their AI, data science, graphics, high-performance computing and VDI workloads. By leveraging increased computing power, businesses will be able to learn more from their data, unlock new opportunities and follow through on their most ambitious data-driven growth strategies.”
Pricing and availability
The PRIMERGY GX2460 M1 is available to order from November 2020, either directly from Fujitsu or via Fujitsu SELECT channel partners.
