Last week, OSS unveiled the newest version of its rack-scale GPU Accelerator products, the GPUltima-CI (Composable Infrastructure) at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC 2018). GPUltima-CI allows mixed use datacenters to greatly increase GPU, networking and storage resource utilization compared to similar hyperconverged server solutions.
The GPUltima-CI power optimized rack configuration features up to 32 dual Intel Xeon Scalable Architechture compute nodes, 64 network adapters, 48 NVIDIA Volta GPUs and 32 NVMe drives on a 128Gb PCIe switched fabric allowing for a large number of composable server configurations per rack. Using one or many racks, the OSS solution contains the necessary resources to compose a wide variety of combinations of GPU, NIC and Storage resources required in today's mixed workload data center.
